Go along the engine block and remove all the bolts,sounds as if your having problems separating the transaxle from the motor,some motors need to be set to TDC to remove the transaxle give that a try.Don't rate this so you don't have to pay just a couple quick suggestions.

Where is the neutral safety switch on a 1998 buick regal?


Hi there:

The backup lamps will light whenever the ignition switch is in the RUN position and the transaxle is in REVERSE. On older vehicles, this function was handled by a dedicated switch with a name such as the Neutral/Safety Backup Light Switch, or something similar. This switch was designed to keep the engine from starting in any gear except PARK and/or NEUTRAL. The switch contacts also activated the backup lights when the transaxle was placed in REVERSE.


On the vehicles covered by this manual, the backup lamp control function is part of an integrated switch called the Transaxle Range switch (sometimes also called the Park/Neutral Position or PNP switch). In addition to turning on the backup lights, the Transaxle Range switches primary function is to transmit to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) the driver's transaxle range selection. The PCM uses this information to control both engine and transaxle functions electronically.


The Transaxle Range switch is mounted externally on the transaxle. New service replacement switches come pinned in the NEUTRAL position and no adjustment should be necessary. Please note that if the switch requires adjustment, GM recommends that their special tool J 41545 Park/Neutral Switch Alignment Tool be used to properly adjust the Transaxle Range switch, if required.


Removal & Installation

  1. Apply the parking brake and block the front wheels.
  2. Place the transaxle gear selector to NEUTRAL.
  3. Remove the air intake duct to access the switch located on the top of the transaxle at the range selector cable and arm.
  4. Disconnect the transaxle range selector cable.
  5. Detach the electrical connectors from the range selector switch.
  6. Remove the range selector lever retaining nut and lift off the lever.
  7. Unfasten the range selector switch mounting bolts, then remove the switch from the transaxle manual shaft.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION


CAUTION When draining coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze, and quite likely to drink any is is left in an uncovered container or puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Therefore, drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused Unless it is contaminated or several years old. The epa warns that prolonged contact with used engine oil may cause a number of skin disorders including cancer. You should make every effort to minimize your exposure to engine oil. Protective gloves should be worn when dealing with engine oil. Wash exposed skin immediately after contact with oil with soap and water, or waterless hand cleaner.

The engine needs replaced and need to know if the transmission will need to be dropped to do so


no, Because the transmission is underneath your motor. now if you were changing your transmission you would have to pull out the motor then hoist the transmission out.
