    I did this on my 2000 XC. You have to be pretty careful, but I know it was 100 times better than having to drop the rear of the car. A few simple tools: a dremel and a modified metal fork are about...

    My 2000XC gets that code every once in a while. I replaced both O2 sensors (they had 140K) and the code still appeared but much less frequently, about every 7000 miles or so. I once cleared the code,...

    Interesting. I didn't know that it could be installed backwards. If it's leaking both fluids, my guess is that you're probably right. It could be a little messy if you get to taking it apart again....

    The tapered side (smaller and thinner) goes into the transmission axle seal. It should just slide in and stop. If you're keeping the angle gear out completely, make sure to read up on the various...

    As far as I know, that's a negative. They replace them with the same funky units.

    Run away! Bad transmissions in the 01-02 cars, no joke. If it hasn't been replaced, it will be. Just wait for everyone else to post if you don't believe me.

    What is the condition of the trans fluid? Dark or black? I would do a few drain and fills with some fresh fluid and go from there. The 4 speed transmissions are pretty bulletproof, but nasty fluid...

    Here is a (crappy) picture. It's just hanging inline. This hasn't caused any sort of issue as the filter is light enough to not add any significant weight.

    There is a filter called Magnefine which is a transmission specific inline filter. That's good that your filter worked, but I would seriously suggest swapping that oil filter for a Magnefine. The...

    So yeah, my transmission fluid changes at 60K, 115K, 140K, 160K all destroyed my transmission. Right. Why don't you do a little research before posting stupid things.

    I've heard this sound on my car before; I'm pretty sure it's just coolant in the heater core making the noise. Sounds like it's coming from that area.
