V6 coolant leak

If it is in fact between the bellhousing and block, and not leaking down onto the outer surface of the bellhousing, its the freeze plug on the back of the block.
The engine or trans would need to be pulled to get to it.

I pulled all the bellhousing bolts..motor mount bolts...and can't seperate the 4 speed granny transmission from the engine block...what's the problem..everything is lose but won't seperate..

The input shaft (on the front of the trans) is inserted into the clutch plate, so the trans has to move straight backward (or the engine has to move straight forward) about two or three inches to separate the two, before either one can move up or down.

Make sure that you can get them to rotate slightly with respect to each other, to make sure that there is not one more bolt somewhere that is still holding them together.

If you are pulling the engine, make sure that you have already removed the radiator, otherwise when you pull the engine forward, it could go too far and smash the radiator.

98 Pontiac Trans am automatic trans...

The front of the handle has a large "U" clip. Use a screw drive and pry the clip out. It's a lot easier to do when the shifter is pulled all the way back to "1" or "2" but is doable in park still. The handle will then pull up. There will be a plastic piece in it that pushes down to release the lock in the shifter assembly. If when you push the plastic piece down it doesn't release the lock you will have to remove the shifter cover and take a look inside, to see what broke. It may require replacing the whole shifter assembly. You should be able to find the complete assembly used for fairly cheap.

How to take a manual transmission out of a chevy 1500

super easy even a novice mechanic can have one out in a little over an hour, lift it in the air about as high as you can get it put jack stands under it
disconnect the drive shaft
loosen the exhaust, doesnt need to come off
remove the starter
remove the slave cylinder
remove the shifter from the top 4 screws and 4x8mm bolts and 1x10mm bolt holding the wires running to the trans.
remove the bolts that connect the motor to the trans there are 6 really that hold it with several other nuts on top holding wires and such.
remove the 4 bolts that hold the crossmember and the bolt to the trans on the crossmember,
stick your jack underneath the trans and remove the crossmember. pull the trans straight back and lower. even without the right tools you can have this done in about 30min

95 jeep cheorkee transmission

Bellhousing, driveshaft, crossmember yes. BUT, are we talking overdrive auto or 5 speed manual? P.S. unless you've pulled a tranny before, take it to an expert.

Motor swap

The flywheel is balanced different. Use the 79 flywheel. The exhaust is all going to have to be changed. The trans., bellhousing will work.
