1991 Mercury Sable Question: Transmission seal

 

Question

Transmission oil is leaking from one of the seals. I can't pinpoint it cause I don't have a jack. My question is "what is the general price to replace a seal on the automatic transmission?"

    Its about an 8.5 hour job to remove the transmission if the front transmission seal has to be replaced. If it is an axle seal that needs to be replaced its probably a 1 to 1.2 hour labor.
