Oil pan removel on 1998 jimmy wont come off motor. do i need to losen trans to get oil pan off

check that the bottom half of the timing chain cover isn't too tight, or the seals and gaskets are good and stuck, make sure you have a couple oilpan bolts threaded loosely enough to allow the oilpan to move but threaded enough to hold the oilpan up, hit the bottom of the oilpan to knock it loose

Hi i have a 93 buick lesabre that is leaking atf badly seems to be comming from right where the motor and transmisson join together im thinking torque converter seal and im wondering how difficult a job...

I worked on buicks at a dealer for 15 years and never saw a torque converter seal leaking...if its trans fluid that leaking i would suspect a front pump seal in the trans,If is not trans fluid make sure its not the back of the intake manifold leaking down the bellhousing seaming to leak from the trans. ..If oil maybe rear main seal... No special tools needed really just make sure you support the engine safely if you are going to remove the trans.....

87chevyG30 5.7lV8 core plug removed w/out taking out engine?

You should not have to pull the motor to replace any of the freeze plugs, except the 2 on back of engine block witch requires engine removel or trans. removel. Depending on witch one thats leaking. There are 3 on each side, and 2 on the rear of engine, most common one to leak is the one above the starter, witch requires starter removel, there is one in the middle thats you have to jack up engine to remove engine mount to get too. There all located below exhaust manafold on each side. They are a bear to chg. but can be done without engine removel.

1999 grand am se

it is simple actually.

Just time connsuming.

First you need ot know, you have to pull the motor and transmission.

you need to unplug every thing, formt he motor and transmission, and thing that will tie it to the car.

Electrical cables, wires fuel lines, and transmission lines.

Pull each front tire off, you will need a drive axle removel tool and a ball joint seperator, youy can rent these at autozone. It is called loan a tool, you pay for them then get themoney back when you return it.

you want to remove the center axle bolt, this will be tough, best way is to use a ling pipe like a jack handle to turn it off.

then you need to undo the bolt for the ball joint and the tie rod ends, use the seprator with a hammer to remove.
use a large pry bar for the ball joint and push down on the control arm to pop the ball joint out and away form the arm.

Once you get it out, turn the entire assembly outward, the strut will turn with it so don't freak out.

then pull the assembly out tword you so that the drive axle pops out, then grab the axle and pull it out of the trans. Once you get both out, then move onto the motor mounts.

there is three of them, one on the passenger side on top one on the drivers side on bottom, and then the trans mount attached to the trans underneath.

ok not ur ready, using a cherry picker (engine hoist) attach the chain to the loop mounted on the top of the motor, ussually placed around the intake and heads. lift your engine out.

remove all of the bolts form the transmission bell housing,that is the big part attached ot the motor, you can then simply pull the transmission off of the motor. Make sure you do this on the ground to make sure you don't drop the transmission.

to put the trans oon the new motor, slide the gear into the trans attached ot the trans, do not remove the gear. you will have to wiggle the trans back and forth up and down and turn it a bit to get it to slide in, as the gear needs to line up with the sline. Replace the bolts and your ready.

Put your new motor in and put every thing back in the same order you took it out, as this will ensure you don't miss any thing.

If you have any problems or any questions, just message me back an i will be glad to help.

03 punto when turn key starter motor clicks after few times motor gets warm is it easy to remove will it just need cleaning and refitting

You may as well get a reconditioned starter as the best cheap option. The main thing though is to disconnect the battery before tackling the removel of the starter motor. As for the removel of the starter motor, if you approach the job in a logical manner then it should not present too many problems. Look at the position of the starter motor and the securing bolts (these bolts will be tight) and look at the access you have to work in and remove the starter. Wire brush the threads of the bolts before refitting.
