Honda Civic Transmission Output Shaft Seal Replacement

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

This video shows how to replace a leaking transmission output shaft seal on a 1997 Honda Civic, but should also work for Civic manufactured during 1996-2000.

You will also learn how to replace a drive axle, because it is taken out when the seal is replaced. Remember you do not have to take the rubber boot off, it was easier for me to so I was able to get a good grip. Also, make sure when installing the seal it is flush with the transmission case, you do not want to force it and push it back too far or it will be ruined by other moving parts inside the transmission. I received estimates from 3 different transmission shops to do this transmission seal replacement ranging from $120-$170. The seal only cost $16, and it took my 1 hour to replace.

The 4T65-E is a series of automatic transmissions from General Motors. Designed for transverse engine configurations, the series includes 4 forward gears. The 4Txx family is an evolution of the original Turbo-Hydramatic 125 transverse automatic introduced in the late 1970s. The “-E” transmission is electronically controlled and features an automatic overdrive transaxle with an electronically controlled torque converter clutch.

AOD Transmission Oil Pump and Piston Assembly

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

The AOD (for automatic overdrive) is a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. Introduced in 1980, it was Ford’s first four-speed automatic overdrive transmission. The 4R70W stands for 4 gears, Rearwheeldrive, 70 stands for the 4th gear ratio, and Wide gear ratio. It has lower 1st and 2nd gear ratios for better take-off acceleration and improved gearset strength.

The AOD was used originally on ’80s and early-’90s Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury products and in the F-series pickups and E-series vans as well. Because the AOD is basically a retooled C-4, many classic car owners have discovered they can substitute this overdrive transmission into their ’60s and ’70s production vehicles relatively easily and reap the benefits of a lower final gear ratio and decreased wear and tear on their vintage small-block V-8 engine. Theres more parts to take off of this but I will do that when the rebuild kit gets here, just to make sure I get the right parts.
