Aerostars are pretty easy except the 4 wheel model. I would suggest going and spending 12.00 to 15.00 on a cheap manuel. there are quit afew steps to take. this will help you understand all that is needed. As for tools a metric wrench and socket set should due. Im not sure but, you my need a quick disconnect tool for the trans cooler lines
