1999 Ford Ranger, 3.0 V6, 4 speed w/OD automatic transmission. It has been 20 years since I removed a rear drive shaft. After I remove the rear driveshaft yoke bolts and I pull the drive shaft out of the transmission will transmission fluid leak out of the rear of the transmission? In other words do I need to drain the fluid first. I know there is a bushing and seal back there, but can't remember if that section has fluid in it, or is dry. Perhaps a dumb question, but that's what 20 years does to the memory. ???
