Question about 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Your in for a good time! front wheel drive transmissions are a pain! anways here it is in short, jack up the car put it on stands, remove tires and bungee calipers out of the way. disconnect lower control arm and slide out axles on both sides. disconnect transmission cooler (if present) and all lines and electronics such as speedo sender and any sensors along with the starter. undo bell housing bolts and any support brackets (leave the most easily accessable bellhousing bolt in for the moment) hook up a cherry picker lift to the transmission and then remove the final bolt. youll then need to slide the transmission away from the motor and up and out of the engine bay (trust me its harder than it sounds youll have to wiggle it around and fight it to get it out) be sure to have a floor jack under the motor to support it and also move the motor up and down slightly to help give you a better angle to get the tranny out. you may also need to loosen the motor mounts to gain a little wiggle room just becareful about moving it to far and break off sensors or stretching wires. again this is the process in short and your particular vehicle may require a few additional steps. i always recommend purchasing a haynes or chilton repair manual for these kind of project, they only cost about 15 bucks and will describe these repairs in detail along with pictures and step by step instructions. anyways good luck!
