Its a lot of work. but if your rdy here we go. if u are not doing this on a hoist be prepared for alot of grunting cursing and swearing.
1. raise the vehicle and put it on jack stands high enough so u can work under it safely
2. disconnect the positive battery cable
3. make sure the steering is loose. What i mean by this is: have the key in the ignition in the acc. position. this allows u to turn the wheels with less effort.
4. remove the front tires
5. remove the center caps from the axle hub.
6. next remove the retaining nutz for the axle shafts.
7. remove both outer-tie rod nuts.
8. using a small sledge hammer hit the mounting point of where the tie rods insert into the hub. not the tie rods them selves
9. next with the ties rods out turn the hub assembly outwards towards your self and remove the axle shaft end from the hub.
10. remove the axle shafts.
point of note: on some axle shaft assemblies there is a retaining clip on the shafts them selves. u must make sure this clip comes out with the shaft when u remove it. if it does not and drops in the transmission. u will be taking the trans. apart to get it out.. not fun
11. next remove the transmission to frame connector.
12. there will be 6-9 13mm bolts that connect the transmission to the engine. remove these
13 . do not separate the transmission yet.
14. disconnect the linkages for the shifter that are to the right when u face the transmission.
15 disconnect the sensor assembly from the transmission. its 3-7 wires that plug into the transmission.
16 at this point look around while u are under there to see if there is anything will will hinder the removal of the transmission. exhaust pipes. oil filter starter, transmission lines.
17 next with a prybar , seperate the transmission gently and rock it side to side to aid the removal.
18 remove the transmission from the can not stress this enough. be carefull. heavy parts can fall and break fingers and hurt you. so take your time.
19. with the transmission out remover and replace the torque converter. when replacing a trasmission always change the coverter with it. they can wear out as well and can cause premature failure of the transmission
20. to assemble, reverse the order.
21 when the transmission is in the car. fill the fluids and check for any leaks.
22 start the vehicle and check again for any abnormal sounds, leaks etc. repair as neccessary.

How do you replace a transmission in a 1996 gmc sierra

Pretty broad question. In my personal experience, even though I do a LOT of mechanical work myself, finding a reputable transmission shop is the best option. They have the tools needed, have done it many times, and generally offer a warranty. Ask around until you find a shop that has done work for someone you know, and that has stood the test of time (and, preferably, was done at a reasonable price). Also, and VERY importantly, get a detailed written quote. If you definitely want to take it on, simply be sure you get the new or rebuilt tranny from a reputable supplier, and go carefully through a factory service manual (worth the cost, for a job this big) well in advance, so you know exactly what you will have to do, what tools will be needed, etc. Fortunately, changing a tranny on a '96 Sierra is WAY simpler than changing something that is front wheel drive with a transaxle crammed in next to the engine between the front wheels. Whatever you do, good luck!

Could someone please tell me the location of the gear selector module on a 1996 Mercedes C250 Sport TD Auto.\r\nthanks ****

If it is a front wheel drive. it's under the hood. lookto the back of the engine to the tranny. where the shift cable/linkage goes to the the's right under that. you will have to disconnect that , remove the arm, and there are two small bolts that hold it on. you might have to pry the old off. if it is a rear wheel drive it's under the car. again follow the linkage to the shift lever, about the middle of the tranny, drivers side. disassemble the same way. the new shift selector will come instruction on how to replace and adjust

Hello, so I'm trying to better understand failing cv joints and how it can affect front differential on a front drive SUV. I read an article that when cv joints go bad it can affect the front differential...

First I think you read it wrong ,that Front WD suv have locking dif..they don't , it locks at the transfer case at the tranny and only on All Wheel Drive SUVs. And then it only transfer more power from back wheels to front wheel. The dif are open dif. means the power goes to the wheels with least resistance or limited slip dif. that transfers power to slower turning wheel. Yes max. load is at full lock and high speeds and yes it does damage over time (wear out), less at lower speeds. The symptoms of a failing cv is knocking while turning.

Going from 4wd tranny to 2wd tranny

If you're going to change out your 4 wheel drive for 2 wheel drive, you will need to remove your transfer case, front drive shafts, and transmission. You will need a new drive shaft, and crossmember as well. Junk yard would be your best bet for the parts, but it doesn't make sense to eliminate your 4 wheel drive. It would be more beneficial to replace your transmission with a used one, or have your existing one rebuilt.

How do i remove mitsi gto gearbox

Remove air intake hoses to throttle body, remove battery tray, remove washer bottle attached to battery tray, remove clutch slave cylinder and compensator from the top of the tranny. Remove tranny gearchange control cables and hang up to one side.
Jack car up as high as you can and remove the wheels. DRAIN the gearbox (24mm not on bottom side).
Now go under the car and remove the starter motor, remove the exhaust front pipe (can unbolt from front CATs and let hang down), remove frame member and remove the plastic covers from the passenger side wheel well to get to the frame member. Remove the lower control arm bolts on both sides and let the control arms hang down. Disconnects both sway bars at the wheel hubs to allow the drive shafts to be pulled outwards. ease the drive shaft on passenger side out with pry bar and have someone pull on the hub to pop the drive shaft out. On the drivers side, you have to first remove the intermediate bracket on the block and then do the same thing with the drive shaft to pull it out.
Support the tranny with a jack.Remove the four bolts holding the tranny support bracket (covered with four grommets in passenger wheel well). Remove the three bolts from the top of the tranny and remove the bracket.

Now work your way around the tranny and remove the bolts holding it to the engine (there is a 10mm phillips screw/bolt holding a dirt sheild in place under the rear of the tranny, the other bolts are more obvious).

Tranny is now ready to be lowered to the floor using the floor jack.

Installation is the reverse of the above. Good Luck.

I don't know what you are making reference to. There are no nose cones on tranny's. Maybe you are inquiring about the tail shaft ? You can't change the tail shaft unless you change the main shaft in the tranny.
