this has been a mission fellas took my jeep to get the seals on the motor replces in order to stop my leaks cool no all of a sudden my real lower seal is leaking and they want to charge me 400 bucks to change the seal because they need to drop my tranny i was aware of the leak before the repair and i hd the mechanic look at my tranny because i can't use 5th gear so i thought it was because of the lift kit turn out the tranny is a infamouse Peugeot BA-10. 5-speed manual transmission and the mechanic said i dont want to mess with that !!! and said i should get an AX 15 from a cherokee or jeep wrangler with a 4.0 engine so ralisticly i need to fix or change my tranny so i can fix my seal anny suggestions so I need an AX15

What Jeep do you have?
Which seal is the one leaking? Is it the rear main seal? If so on Wranglers and CJ's they are replaceable without dropping the tranny. I did it on my TJ

X2, if the tranny will not shift to 5TH, an AX 15 would be a good upgrade, if it has no power in 5TH due to larger tires you may need a gear change... My BA-10 worked for 20 plus years with no problems, unless you are going to mud race or put a v-8 or something.. I would stay with the BA-10 until it dies. As Jack said mine turned the 40's for years, I'm only changing it now due to ORIGINAL seals (Bad Leak). :rip: If it's your rear main seal it should be a 2 piece and can be replaced by just dropping the oil pan.

hey guys sorry for the late reply I have a 1987 jeep yj on 33 inch wheels 4 inch body kit with an 4.2 inline six with original tranny ( Peugeot Tranny i believe its a Ba 10 ) the problem is I have no powedr on 5th gear some people said it coulf be because the tire size and hight of lift and that i might need dana with 410s or extend my shifter to reach the 5th gear so I took it to roco 4x4 to then extend my shifter since it was the most economic way to go and i had him take care of my oil leak which was on the upper seal took him like 2 weeks to fix that he told me my lower seal was leaking and that i didnt need to extend my shifter and simply said my tranny was bad and in order to change the lower seal to stop the leak he needed to drop the tranny not to mention the upper seal was leaking more than before i too it in to them so i took it back so he can fix it again 5 days later got it back and ther rear seal was leaking like hell I'm going nuts LOL

I ran my Peugot till it died and upgraded to an AX15, you need to replace your gears to 4.10's with either tranny. The AX15 is a heavy duty tranny and worth investing in when the Peugot craps out. It sounds like your tranny is still good. Extending the shifter is good if you have longer legs, ride with your seat all the way to the rear, and you installed a tranny drop when it was lifted. I had mine raised about 3" only for comfort. It has nothing to do with losing power in 5th gear.
If the tranny pops out of gear in 2nd, 4th, or reverse (common problem with a lift) then the opening in the floor where the shifter hole is, has to be trimmed out about 1/4". But it sounds like you need new gears more than anything else.

The extension is only to make it easier to reach when you do a tranny drop. Where the shifter comes through the floor hump, body, your shifter is now hitting the floor. Trim that area back about 1/4 of an inch, this will allow you to now shift fully into reverse. You will no longer have to hold the shifter in the reverse position while backing up. I can give you hand with this as it is about the easiest repair you'll ever have to do. I like easy repairs lol!

I repeat the shifter extender will do nothing to change the mechanical functioning of your jeep, gears,or tranny! It just makes it easier for you to reach the shifter when you do a tranny drop. Remember if you drop the tranny 2 inches you drop the shifter knob 2 inches. You will have a slightly longer shifting pattern - you have to move the shifter knob a little more when shifting between gears. This is why you need to trim a little metal off the opening in the floor to allow the little longer shifting pattern of the shifter from preventing you from going all the way into reverse.
