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.

I have a 1984 Buick Electra. The horn blows on and off when I turn the steering wheel. I had to disconnect the horn. Any suggestions?


Need to disassemble the steering wheel to access the horn button / switch -- there's something loose in there which is cauing a closed circuit when the steering wheel is turned. May be solved by tightening or the horn button / switch may need replacing.

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.

Changing a transmission in a 1989 Buick Electra Park Avenue


Transmission REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Open the hood and place protectors on the fenders. Remove the air cleaner assembly.
  2. Disconnect the detent cable at its upper end.
  3. Remove the transmission oil dipstick, and the bolt holding the dipstick tube if it is accessible.
  4. Raise the vehicle and safety support it with jackstands. NOTE: If a floor pan reinforcement is used, remove it if it interferes with driveshaft removal or installation.
  5. Disconnect the speedometer cable at the transmission.
  6. Disconnect the shift linkage at the transmission.
  7. Disconnect all electrical leads at the transmission and any clips that hold these leads to the transmission case.
  8. Remove the flywheel cover and matchmark the flywheel and torque converter for later assembly.
  9. Remove the torque converter-to-flywheel bolts and/or nuts.
  10. On gasoline engine vehicles, disconnect the catalytic converter support bracket.
  11. Remove the transmission support-to-transmission mount bolt and transmission support-to-frame bolts, and any insulators (if used).
  12. Position a transmission jack under the transmission and raise it slightly.
  13. Slide the transmission support rearward.
  14. Loosen the transmission enough to gain access to the oil cooler lines and detent cable attachments.
  15. Disconnect the oil cooler lines and detent cable. Plug all openings.
  16. Support the engine and remove the engine-to-transmission bolts.
  17. Disconnect the transmission assembly, being careful not to damage any cables, lines or linkage.
  18. Install a C-clamp or torque converter holding tool onto the transmission housing to hold the converter in the housing. Remove the transmission assembly from the vehicle (a hydraulic floor jack is best for this). To install: Fig. 1: Transmission oil cooler lines 85847023.gif

  19. Install the transmission assembly into the vehicle (a hydraulic floor jack is best for this). When installing the flex plate-to-converter bolts, make sure that the weld nuts on the converter are flush with the flex plate and that the converter rotates freely by hand. Coat the threads with thread locking compound, hand-start the three bolts, tighten them finger tight and torque them evenly to 35 ft. lbs. (48 Nm).
  20. Support the engine and install the engine-to-transmission bolts. Torque the bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  21. Connect the oil cooler lines and detent cable.
  22. Slide the transmission support forward.
  23. Position a transmission jack under the transmission and raise it slightly.
  24. Install the transmission support-to-transmission mount bolt and transmission support-to-frame bolts, and any insulators (if used).
  25. On gasoline engine vehicles, connect the catalytic converter support bracket.
  26. Install the flywheel cover.
  27. Connect all electrical leads to the transmission and any clips that hold these leads to the transmission case.
  28. Connect the shift linkage at the transmission.
  29. Connect the speedometer cable at the transmission.
  30. Check to see if all under vehicle components and fasteners are properly installed and torqued.
  31. Lower the vehicle safely.
  32. Install the transmission oil dipstick, and the bolt holding the dipstick tube if it is accessible.
  33. Connect the detent cable at its upper end.
  34. Connect the negative battery cable. Recheck all procedures for completion of repair. Close the hood and remove the protectors on the fenders.
  35. Install the air cleaner assembly. Refill the transmission with fluid as outlined in the "Oil Pan'' section in this chapter.
  36. Start the vehicle and check operation. prev.gif next.gif

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.
