I'm pulling a transmission out of a 95 f150 4x4.I have the transmission cooler lines disconnected, drive shaft, tranfercase,dipstick, linkage, 6 bellhouse bolts and it like something else stopping it

have you removed the bolts holding the torque converter to the flex plate as the torque converter should be pulled with the transmission and not separately
make sure that there is not a bell housing bolt from the front going back into the bell housing

What bolts have to be removed to drop transmission on 84 dodge 600

Wireing harness needs disconnected
Transmision lines need disconected
If 4 wheel drive then transfer case needs removed
front and rear drive shafts need removed
If you have torsion bars they need to come out.
Then if im correct there are 8 bolts on the bell housing and the transmission cross member has 4 bolts if your exhaust pipe is in the way then that also has to come out.
Dont forget to take off your shift cable
Before you can remove the transmission you will need to take off the 4 to 8 tourqe converter bolts through your inspection port or the transmission will stay locked to the flywheel and you can pull and pry all you want and not move it at all.

How to remove top transmission bolts on a 2002 ford explorer

You will need two "special" tools. First a long (36" or so) extension, preferably 1/2" drive, and a swivel impact socket. All of the bolts around the bell housing are the same head size. I believe a 13mm. The way it is done is that you remove the transmission mount and let the trans hang down to give you more room, then use the long extension and swivel socket to reach the top 2 bolts.

How do you pull the transmission out of a 2000 ford expedition

    • Open the hood to access the battery on the driver's side of the truck. Disconnect the battery with a socket wrench.
    • 2Raise the front of the Explorer with a jack. Place the jack stands under the front crossmember and lower the truck on to the jack stands. This will provide plenty of room to work.
    • 3
    • Disconnect the electrical connectors at the side of the transmission by hand. Ensure all the connectors are disconnected.
    • 4Unbolt the crossmember directly under the tail shaft with a socket wrench. Unbolt the tailshaft from the crossmember to free it from the bottom of the truck. There will be a series of bolts to unscrew to free the crossmember.
    • 5Unscrew the hanger bolts holding the drive shaft in place with a socket wrench. Pull the drive shaft out of the back of the transmission. Let the drive shaft rest on the ground.
    • 6Unbolt the starter at the front of the engine with a socket wrench. Unbolt the wiring from the starter with the ratchet. There will be two wiring harnesses to remove.
    • 7Unscrew the transmission cooler fluid lines with a line wrench. Ensure both lines are disconnected.
    • 8Place the jack under the tailshaft of the transmission. Strap the back of the transmission to the jack. This will help prevent the transmission from falling to the ground.
    • 9Unscrew the nine bolts holding the transmission to the engine. They will be centered around the back of the transmission's bell housing.
    • 10Raise the transmission up with the jack and pull it away from the engine. Slide the transmission out from under the truck. Some assistance may be required because the transmission is heavy

How do I remove automatic transmission from 1993 Chev 2500 pickup?

The Drive Shaft
  • Using a 1/2-to-2-ton floor jack, lift the front of the truck and place jack stands under the frame. Once the truck is lifted enough for you to safely move around under it, begin removing the four bolts connecting the U-joint between the drive shaft and the rear axle. When you pull the drive shaft out of the tail shaft, transmission fluid will pour out of the tail shaft, so place a drip pan or oil-changing pan under the tail shaft of the transmission.
Lines And Linkage
  • If the truck is an automatic, you will need to remove two transmission lines from the passenger side of the transmission by the bell housing close to the transmission dip stick. If it's a manual transmission you won't have those lines, but you will have shifting linkage on the driver's side of the transmission. Depending on the year of the truck, the linkage is held on by either a cotter pin or locking-sleeve washer. You will also need to remove the speedometer cable. If it's an older truck, it will be a hard-cased cable similar to the emergency brake cable that threads onto the driver side of the transmission just before the bell housing. If the truck is a newer model, it will be an electrical set of wires attached to a plug on the tail shaft.

Remove From Engine
  • Remove the transmission mount bolt that holds the tail end of the transmission to the cross member on the frame. You will need to either use wood blocks or a jack to support the weight of the transmission. Take out the nine bolts on the bell housing that attach the transmission to the engine--there is one on the top center of the bell housing, two along each side of the bell housing and two on each side at the bottom next to the guide pins.
Remove From Vehicle
  • Once removed, maneuver the transmission to the rear of the truck about 6 inches until it clears either the clutch kit of a manual or the torque converter of an automatic. When the transmission is free, lower the bell housing end of the transmission down until the tail shaft is clear of the cross member.
