Is there anything out of the ordinary I should know when removing the engine from a 2002 Buick Park Avenue with the 3.8 liter v6 for example does the transmission need to be in neutral or park

No, nothing special to remove them. Except you need a floor jack under the transmission to jack it up some to get the angle right when going back in. Have fun. Just a note. I would replace the rear main seal on the engine and the torque converter seal in the transmission while it is out. Even if it isn't leaking. Both are old and tired.

How do I adapt a Mitsubishi 3.0 v6 to a th400 transmission?

You will have to have an adapter plate made, you will need an adapter for the bell housing to the block and the same thickness plate to adapt the flywheel to the torque converter.

Vaccum leak/torque converter engine code

I would need the actual code to give a comment. I doubt a vac leak would cause a torque converter code.

1984 chevy 1/2 ton pick-up either 350 or 400 trans dont know which reverse gear works but no 1,2,3 seems to try to move but wont

Sounds like you need a new transmission. It can only be one of two things: Transmission is old and needs replaced or the torque converter is bad. But if your going to replace the torque converter you might as well make sure you have a good transmission because you have to drop the transmission to get to the torque converter. No point in droping the transmission and replacing the torque converter to find out you need to drop it again because the transmission is bad. You should be able to drop the transmission is a few hours. You only have 3 bolts on the fly wheel and one bolt for the transmission mount and about 6 bolts connected to the engine. Then you have your fluid lines speedometer cable and drive shaft. And your dip stick.

How to take the transmission out of a 97 dodge neon? Im looking for a manual online that shows me this. I went to repair the rear oil seal but after I got it back together the transmission leaked all its...

You are suppose to put the torque converter on the bell housing first, then align the engine to the torque converter slot. I hope nothing has been damaged.

Will be hard to change a transmission filter in a 89 buick park avenue?

the trans filter is internal.raise & support vehicle.fluid is drained by removing transmission pan.this can get messy.trans pan gasket & filter are usually sold as a set.fill W/new fluid through dipstick tube.note that trans will not need as much fluid as is listed in specifications--torque converter will not drain.if you change your own oil;this is the next step.
