What Aerostar transmission doesn't have a leak? Really folks, all my
Aerostar transmissions have been fine .... all of them. Even my third one.
Does this say something about the tranny?
Some leaks are easy to fix, some aren't. Do yourself a favor and get a rock
solid rebuilt instead of fooling around with somebody else's bad parts.
A word of caution though; the transmission for your van is no longer in
production and neither are the parts. The latest upgrade requires extensive
rewiring since it is electronically controlled. I was going to repair my
last transmission, but the part was $1500 and in Texas (I'm in PA). Let's
see, $1900 for a new transmission with warranty installed next day or $1500
for a part to stick in an old transmission.
The Aerostar is an ugly but good van. It's rough in the styling department
but it sure can take a beating. Even though mine has power nothing, it's
still the most comfortable van I've ever driven. I just try to avoid
rolling a window down.
