No they make special tools but if you want to make it easy on yourself yes.. or get a rental tool with the right curve and cup size to install hammer needed to tap in with special tool for freeze plugs. Also keep in mind if your just replacing one its quick but if all are rusted or you think there are always doubt there are some in the middle of the housing and motor side behind your flywheel and diffrent sizes two.

Cannot remove transmission

Did you remove the torque converter bolt's from the fly wheel, should be 4. You will have to turn the motor by hand to remove all the bolt's.

Hard time with transaxle to fix clutch

ok this is fun

you need to remove the strut lower ball joint and the trans mount then remove the motor mount from front of opisite side frame rail to allow motor to rotate
then trans will drop about 4-6 inches undo the bolts slowely arround the bell housing when all bolts out shake the bastard it will slowely slip off
remember to jack the car up high i usualy go 2 feet off the ground with swifts and geo remove the cluch cable and i believe the starter stays in place just need to undo the bolts \
this job takes about 3 hours start to finish trans drops out the botom and goes in the same way use a small jack to suport the trans untill all bolts out and dont forget to use your ball joint fork to pop the drive shafts out of the trans and btw use new fluid to replace3 your losses on the ground c
and if all else fails buy a chilton book they are a god send

Locate bolts to remove the strater of 1996 dodge caravan

Almost all starters have ears with holds in them that bolts go through to threaded holes in the bell housing. Find the starter and look around the end without the wires for the bolts.

Hello Friend, I have a Dodge Caravan 1997 and in the process of changing out my water pump and timing belt. I am in the stage where I need to open the damper harmonic bolt. Which direction does this bolt...

I have managed to open the harmonic damper bolt. This bolt opens in the counter clockwise rotation. A breaker bar was used with the flywheel locked in place. In order to get to the flywheel, the starter motor was removed to get access. The manual suggest removing the bell housing plate. This takes more effort and one of side engine mount also need removal. I decided to remove the starter motor instead. In order to remove the starter motor, first remove the cables from the starter motor and three mounting bolts. Secure a rod or a screw driver between the flywheel and bell housing through a hole in the flywheel. The size of the size is about 1/2". This hole was visible when the engine is set to TDC (top dead center). There could be more than one hole but I did not try to rotate the engine to find out. Once the rod or the screw driver in place in the flywheel, use the 22mm socket head and breaker bar and undo the harmonic damper bolt counter clockwise (CCW). I believe an impact air gun could do this job as well. The spec on the bolt is 100 ft lbs torque - Hendry
