Transmission line is leaking where it goes into trany how do i change it they are on top of trany

You will need to let the tranny down, unfortunately. BUT, it doesn't need to come out. You didn't mention if yours is 2 or 4wd, so I'll give a hint on both. Remove the rear driveshaft on a 2wd, and put your floor jack under the rear crossmember. Take the bolts out of the crossmember and slowly let it down. The tranny will drop more than enough to see if you need to replace any lines or fittings, as well as give you room to do that.

4wd is a little more work, but take BOTH drive shafts out and put the jack under the transfer case. remove any bolts holding it to the frame, then let it down. Everything else will go same as a 2wd.

Another way to access the top of the tranny, is to cut a door in the floorboard above the lines. Not recommended on a nicer machine, but works on older beater trucks!

I hope this was helpful to you.

This is a big job, this is listed as a 2004 ford taurus you will need a engine support bar and a ****** jack, a car lift will also be needed, doing this on the ground can be done but makes things alot harder. the trannys electricl connectors unhooked and also the battery removed for room. next you will want to drain the ****** oil.install the engine suppurt bar , this bar will hold the engine and ****** in car when the lower frame is removed. you will remove the air filter box. raise car and remove flex plate cover and starter. next remove bolts that hold flex plate to ****** converter.with engine support in place you will unbolt and remove ****** mounts frt ,rear and leftside. note the only thing holding the engine is the rightside mount and bar.remove the drive axles, unbolt lower control arms at lower balljoint and remove axle nuts, then axles will come out. next is to unbolt steering rack from the frame.dissconnect ****** lines from ******.remove exhaust system front pipes with converters, (Y-PIPE). next is to remove the k frame. this is the frame that holds engine and ****** inside car, becarful as engine and ****** will fall out if support bar is not installed will need to double check for any connections in the way, with all clear and someone to help you lower the frame you will unbolt and remove it. next you will lower adjusting rod on the engine support bar to tilt engine and ****** down, the ****** will tilt down, next remove all ****** to engine bolts except one. with all bolts out except one you will install a ****** jack to hold the ******. next remove the last bolt and look around for any connection that may need to be removed. split ****** away from engine slowly always checking that all is clear. with ****** removed roll off to side or back and now you will be able to remove the flexplate. remove the bolts holding flexplate to engine mark a hole to install new one the same way. most flywheels (flexplate) only go on one way but just incase mark it. install new plate and reverse steps to but back together. note always install new starter when replacing a flexplate, this is to avoid damage to new flexplate. good day. also this job would take a tech 8 hrs.

Is thier a way to take a tranny out without dropping the frame

NO. the bottom frame must be removed, it alot of work to remove the tranny on a ford taurus, you will need a top engine support also, this will hold the engine and trany inplace to remove the frame and then you lower this to remove tranny. good day.

How do i remove the transmission from a 2001 ford taurus

this is a big job,you will need to dissconnect the battery, then you will need an engine support bar to hold and lower the engine from the top. you will have to remove the battery and the bracket and also airbox, next is to raise the car and remove the wheels and then seperate the lower balljionts on both sides, remove the axle nuts and remove the axles. then remove the swaybar ends, next is to put engine support on the top of the engine and then remove the frame from under the engine and trany, before the frame can come out you will need to remove the exhaust system and also unbolt the steering rack from the steering shaft, make sure to lock wheel so it doesnt turn,remove lines from rack, when you remove the lower frame the steering rack and all the frnot end componets like the swaybar and lower control arms will come out with the frame you will need to unbolt the front and rear engine mounts, leave the trany mount bolted for now,after the frame is out you will then remove the bolt on the trany mount, this is the mount where the battery sits at the rear of the tranny, lower the engine slowly and just a bit. next is to remove the starter and flywheel covers, you will then remove the converter bolts that hold the flywheel to converter on tranny, next is to remove the tranny bbolts, make sure to leave one bolt on for is to lower engine support enough so that the tranny has enough room to come out, next install tranny jack under tranny and remove last bolt holding it,then pry away from engine always checking to make sure all bolts are out and also all wire connections unhooked, like wiring harness to tranny and selector switch connector and speedometer connection, and tranny will seperate and then you slowly lower to ground, to install reverse directions. good day.

I need instructions on replacing the clutch in a '94 Chevy Blazer 4x4, 350 engine. Specifically the pilot bearing, throwout bearing.

The pilot bearing is pressed into the flywheel and you need a pilot bearing/bushing puller. Some A/P stores will rent it to you for free (deposit). the throwout bearing is held onto the clutch fork normally by clips. Sometimes you have to take the "fork" out to get the bearing off.

Make sure to note how "deep' the pilot bearing/bushing is so that when you install the new one it is set at the right depth.

the sensor is located on trany on the passengerside, if you follow the pass/side axle to trany then look atop of trany and you will see sensor, remove the one bolt holding it and wiggle and twist while pulling it up and out, theres a electrical connection that you will also have to unplug.

How do you remove transmission in 1996 park avenue?

Drain pan, take out axles, put motor support on the top to hold motor while pulling. Disconnect trany lines, put trany jack under transmission. The K frame needs to come out completely that is why you need the motor support chain to the motor top.Take bolt out of bell housing. Disconnect all connectors and cables. Transmission mount will need to be removed on passenger side. You need to take the 4 bolts out of the can jump the starter if you have a remote switch or however you would like to do it to gain access to the converter bolts; otherwise, you will need to turn it with a screwdriver until you get all of the bolts out. Then you take the transmission jack and begin to pull the trany side ways until it clears the engine and let it down and that should do it...there are a few obvious things that will need to be taken out on top of the motor, even a few that I didn't mention on the bottom, but for the most part that should do it.

1987 Volkswagen Golf - speedometer problem

Well I would verify the trany speed gear is "ate up" first, theres only one 10mm bolt that holds it in place, sure the area around the speedo cable is very CLEAN before removing it any dirt in there would make things bad to say the least. If you pull the cable out the gear is attached to the cable if it looks good then put it back together and remove your cluster (speedo and other gauges inside) I suggest you pick up a repair manual at a big auto store on MK1-MK2 vdubs (82-92) to explain how to remove speedo cable from back of cluster its kinda of tricky getting your fingers back there and pressing it together to get it to release. Once out drive the car and see if that cable is turning from the inside if it is then its your speedo gauge that is faulty. Grab a cluster from a scrap yard, if that cable is NOT turning then the gearing inside the trany is messed up which would mean taking the trany apart to repair it. If that was the case you would be cheaper to replace the whole trany with a used one. Good luck
