gear oil leaking

hi everyone
OK ..

i was cruising in my mustang at about 70mph when i felt the transmission was shifting from 4th to 3rd on its own then shifts to 4th (shifting a lot although my foot didn't move)

i stopped in the nearest town and checked the trans oil level and it was low
i refilled it and continued my travel and after about 10 miles i noticed a lot of
white smoke behind me , i stopped and there were almost no oil in the trans
and it was leaking from the transmission extension to the drive shaft
i put the lever in D , R , 1 , 2 and it didn't move or anything
the oil kept leaking for about 2 hours and then stopped
i was told that it was an easy fix and its the sealing

my question is :

how hard is it to replace the seal ?
how much does the seal costs ??
do you think i damaged the transmission ???

thanks ..

-From what ive read its not too bad to replace the seal.

-Seals are only 10-20 bucks.

-I dont know really. I dont think you did personally. Its just leaking

i got a ford genuine part for about 9 bucks
its the rear seal connecting the transmission to the driveshaft
i was told that its easy , you just have to pull the driveshaft from the transmission and there you can just pull the seal directly

please just correct me if i'm wrong !!
i'll try to fix the car tomorrow

thanks mwolverine8

no problem man. And yeah that all looks good to me. Some say it is a quick fix. Let us know if it doesnt fix the problem.
