If you can slide the engine forward a little, you may gain enough access to remove your torque converter bolts. You have to be careful, because if you put pressure on the trans gears, you can break the pump, and when running it will leak trans fluid very fast. Your situation may be in your best interest to remove the trans as well. I hope this helps you, and I do wish you luck on your repair.

Is it front wheel or rear? if front you have to take down the motor and trans together by unbolting the 4-6 very large bolts and drop the entire front assembly.
if rear drive disconnect the drive shaft and unbolt the crossmember get a trans jack or one with wheels that work and unbolt trans from motor.
remember to SPIN the torque con when reinstalling.

Do u have to loosen torque convertor to remove the engine on a 5.2 and if so how?


The torque converter is connected to the flex plate by 4 or 5 bolts. There is an access plate or hole at the bottom of the bellhousing. So yes, you will need to rotate the engine by hand to access these bolts one at a time to remove them. Remove all the plugs from the engine put a half inch ratchet on the bolt on the front of the crankshaft and rotate the crank to position the bolts on the torque converter.

How would i disconnect the transmission from the motor when the motor is locked up


Try using an impact socket on the balancer bolt, with a 3/4" Johnson bar and a long steel pipe for leverage. If that doesn't work your only other option may be to remove the heads, spray WD40 all around the edge of the pistons, then place a piece of wood like a 4 x 4 on top of each piston and give it a few really good hits with a heavy hammer, that may free the pistons enough so you can turn the crankshaft.

How to remove the engine from the torque convertor on a Ford 345C Skip Loader?


When removing an engine from any automatic box the best tip is to remove the bolts holding the torque converter to the flex plate/flywheel and leave the torque converter in position on the shaft in the front of the box. It will move back to the box enough to separate the engine . Turn the engine around to get to each bolt. If the transmission is going to be unsupported then restrain the torque converter with a plate bolted through a flange hole or a strap across the front a note here is that what you call a skip loader may be known as a skid steer loader in which case there will be no torque converter as it hooks directly to a hydraulic pump via a splined shaft.

How do you disconnect engine from transmission? Where is torque converter bolts? 2000 ford focus 2.0


get the front end up on some jack stands, take the starter out, and you can access torque converter nuts from starter hole. you will need to turn the engine by hand and have someone else hold the engine still while you undo the nuts. Once those nuts are off and every thing else is removed from the transmission (CV shafts, wire connectors, etc) remove the bell housing bolts (5 or 6 I think) and pull (may need to pry with a bar some) the trans away from the engine and let it down gently. I believe (although I don't do much transmission work) that you may need to remove the sub-frame a as well.
