Default 2003 manual transmission leak - non turbo

All,

The shop just called and said that my 2003 PT Cruiser's manual transmission is leaking at the "halfs". Down the middle of the transmission.

Just a couple of questions.

How do I tell if I have a G288 or T350 manual transmission?

How difficult is it for a DYI to remove and replace? I have a large jack stands and lots of tools...just never performed major surgery on the PT.

Where can I find good instructions on how to remove and replace.

In the Dallas / Ft Worth area, what company would you recommend I have rebuild my transmission?

Thanks for your help,

mims

Maybe you don't need rebuild. Maybe just fix the leaks. If not a GT. I don't think they used g288.

like Busted says, depends if you have a turbo

IF you have a non turbo, you have a T350.
IF you have a turbo, ignore the rest of my info below


i resealed mine after i took it apart. it was not very difficult. use permatex anaerobic sealant.


if you're going to bother, i recommend skimming through my thread here:
i killed it.

you should also do the axle seals, and if you're taking it apart anyways, you may want to do the input bearing/seal cartridge assembly if it's greasy in the bellhousing.

Thank you Rob342!

My wife's car is s 2003 PT Cruiser, non-turbo, manual transmission limited model.

Resealing sounds fine. I like the idea.

I know I have the skill and the tools to remove the transmission then dropping it off at a repair shop. however, if I can understand how to replace the seals.... I am game.

Thanks for your extra effort in taking pictures and recording your steps.

Thanks again,

mims
