97 ford escort transmission trouble

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  97 ford escort transmission trouble

ok...my brother was driving down the highway tonight, and he hit rock or something, putting 2 holes in his transmission casing....he drives a 97 ford escort auto trans, everything is stock...my question...is it possible to only replace the casing, or would the whole transmission have to be replaced?

Stand back and look at this from a logical standpoint. You have two holes in the trans casing. What are you going to do, disassemble the trans and put the internals in another case? Not likely. Logic tell you the simplest and cheapest route is to R&R the trans.

undefinedDid you fix the car? If not do you want to sell it? I have a automatic transmission to fit it.

Thanks 56init
