No you should be able to pull the engine and leave the trans in the truck. The bolts around the bellhousing may be difficult to access.

Dropping this on the ground is loads of fun. First, you don't have to raise the truck until your ready to pull the transmission out from under it. But you can if you want to. Here we go. Drain the transmission and T case, remove the drive shafts, put a jack under the transmission and lift some. remove the trans mount nuts, remove the cross member. Let the jack down. Remove the nuts for the T case. Jack it back up, pull the T case and secure it with straps to anything in the back, pull it tight and let it hang there. remove the starter, pull it out of the way.let it hang. remove the toque converter bolts. Remove the electrical lines and cooler lines. Remove the bolts from the trans to engine. Pull it out.

How to remove1995 cavalier transmission

The transmission is transversely mounted in these vehicles. The mount that secures the transmission to the body is also supporting the engine. If you want to remove the transmission without also removing the engine you will have to support the engine once you remove the transmission mount. You will need to remove the drivers side wheel, caliper, and rotor. You then need to remove the drivers side CV shaft. You will need to separate the lower ball joint in order to remove the shaft and to provide working room to separate the transmission from the engine. You need to disconnect the Shift cable (automatic) or slave cylinder (manual) from the transmission. You must separate the passengers side CV shaft from the transmission, but you do not need to full y remove it. Ensure that you do not separate the inner CV joint when pulling the transmission free from the inner splines. Remove the flywheel shield plate. If automatic transmission, unbolt the torque converter from the flywheel. Disconnect any electrical connections from the transmission. If automatic transmission, disconnect the hydraulic lines running to the radiator. Unbolt the transmission from the engine at the bell housing. Automatic transmissions will come out fairly easy...manuals you must pull back to disengage the transmission splines from the clutch disc.

How to remove a transmission with cable clutch on a 1999 sonoma pickup

The transmission is not at the right angle -not still in correct alignment with the engine. When removing it, it must be pulled straight back, and kept tilted at same angle as the engine, so the transmission input shaft clears the clutch disc and doesn't bind up there.

Bad oil leak

Well, they need separating to get to the seal, so if the transmission can be removed without pulling them both out at once, you could do the seal with the engine in the car and the transmission removed. Buy a Haynes repair manual and see if transmission can be removed with the engine in the car. You will need a manual, anyway, for either procedure-either engine and transmission together out of the car, and then separated, or the transmission alone removed.

Remove a flywheel

The clutch come out with the engine since it is bolted to the fly wheel. If you had an automatic transmission then you would need to remove the torque converter bolts from the flywheel so that the torque converter would stay in the transmission. If you pulled the manual transmission the clutch would stay attached to the flywheel. It's the same when pulling the engine.

Removal & Installation To Remove:

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely using jackstands.
  3. Drain the transmission fluid.
  4. Remove the driveshaft from the transmission (2WD) and transfer case, if equipped (4WD or AWD).
  5. Support the transmission with a suitable transmission jack.
  6. Remove the shift cable from the transmission control lever and bracket.
  7. Remove the nut and washer securing the transmission mount to the crossmember.
  8. Remove the bolts and washers securing the mount to the transmission.
  9. Disconnect the exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifold(s).
  10. If equipped, remove the bolts securing the converter pan cover to the transmission.
  11. Remove the 3 bolts securing the torque converter to the flywheel.
  12. Remove the bolt, clip, and strap securing the three fuel lines and transmission vent hose to the transmission case.
  13. Remove the bolts and nut securing the transmission to the engine.
  14. Remove the oil filler tube and seal from the transmission.
  15. Disconnect the transmission cooler lines from the transmission. Plug the lines and the ports in the transmission.
  16. Unplug the wiring harness connectors from the transmission.
  17. Inspect for any other wiring, brackets etc. which may interfere with the removal of the transmission.
  18. Since the transmission acts as a rear engine mount, properly support the rear of the engine with an underbody support of other suitable support before attempting to remove the transmission. Otherwise the rear of the engine may pitch downward and components on the rear of the engine and on the firewall may be damaged.
  19. Remove the transmission from the engine by pulling the transmission rearward to disengage it from the locator dowel pins on the back of the block. Carefully lower the transmission from the vehicle. Use care that the torque converter does not fall out of the front of the transmission

Need to pull a siezed engine from a 99 avenger (can't turn it over to undo torque converter bolts) Can it be pulled without pulling the transaxle? (is there enough clearance to pull the engine with torque...

There isn't enough room to pull the engine without removing the converter. You can try to separate the engine and the trans far enough to get to the bolts with a wrench. Or remove the engine and transmission together and unbolt the two out of the car.

How to remove a transmission?

Hope this is not your first, if it is you picked a tough one to learn on. Here goes:1 disconnect negative battery cable 2 Raise and support the car, a lift is the best tool for the job here, but you can do this on jackstands, they just need to be tall ones at least 2 feet of clearance under the car. 3 Install engine holding fixture, this supports the back of the engine when you remove the crossmember and trans.4 remove left front wheel, seperate ball joint remove drive axle retaining nut then remove drive axle from transaxle by prying at joint closest to transaxle. Do not pull on the outer joint or you will pull the inner joint apart. 5 place transmission jack under transaxle pan. 6 remove bolts from crossmember then remove the crossmember 7 remove inspection cover then remove three torque converter bolts 8 remove transmission cooling lines from fittings on transmission 9 remove shift cable 10 unplug 4 wire plug from front side of transmission 11 remove 6 bolts from bell housing 12 remove speedometer cable 13 remove three bolts from around right hand drive axle, then pry axle loose from transmission. You do not need to remove axle from car, just let it hang.14 pull transmission away from engine far enough to disengage the alignment dowels and finish pulling right hand drive axle from transmission housing then lower the transmission to the floor 15 pull transmission from under vehicle.
