All trans to engine bolts are removed. engine mounts are free, engine still won't come out. I don't know what else could possibly be keeping it from seperating. Is it absolutely necessary to remove...


YES YOU MUST SEPERATE TO GET TO FLYWHEEL
THER IS TWO DOWEL PIN ONE PER SIDE TOWADS THE TOP OF THE TRANSMISION
PART OF ENGINE BLOCK THEY OFTEN BIT AND HOLD ON GOOD IF YOU ARE SURE THAT
ALL THE BOLTS OF THE TRANSMISION ARE UNDONE YOU SHOULD PUT THE ENGINE MOUNT BOLT BACK IN PUT JACK UNDER FRONT OF ENGINE HARMONIQUE PULLEY TO
STABILIZED MOTOR THEN WITH SECOND JACK AT REAR OF TRANSMISION JACK UP TO
START THE RELEASE THEN LOWER BACK DOWN TO RELASE TOP OF TRANSMISION
THEN WITH SUTIBLE PRY BAR BETWEEN ENGINE AND TRANS PRY APART UNTIL FREE
FIRST I WOULD UNBOLT TORQUE AND PUSH BACK IN TRANSMISION AND PUT A RETAINER TO PREVENT TORQUE FROM FALLING OUT OTHERWISE YOU WILL NEED TO CHANGE THE TORQUE PUMP INPUT SEAL IT WILL LEAK IF SEPERATED

Took the motor and trans out of 98 gmc sonoma replaced the motor and put everything back together. trans worked fine when we took it apart and now it will not move no matter what gear you put it in it is...


are the three bolts to the torque convertor screwed into the flywheel also? It seems they are not by your description.
the three bolts are on the outer parimeter of the flywheel

Bad flywheel keeps cracking my starters.


You will need lots of blocking, a small 2 ton trolley jack,and a torque wrench, and some patience. Under the hood disconnect the trans lines from the rad and unbolt the dipstick tube so it can move. Get the front wheels of the truck about 8" off the ground and onto some jack stands or heavy blocking, you will need the room. Block the wheels and remove the driveshaft first. Move up and take the transmission mount off.You'llhave to jack the rear of the trans to get the mount out but it needs to be so you can slide the trans back. If it won't lift high enough you'll have to lower the trans crossmember, but put it back loosely when the mount is off. Remove the inspection plate from the bottom of the trans and the starter. If you disconnect the power cable from the battery you can just unbolt the starter and hang it out of the way without disconnecting it. Put the truck in neutral and disconnect the torque converter bolts through the inspection plate. use a large screwdriver to rotate the assembly to get all the bolts. there should be three. DON'T LOSE THEM. They are a special order item at the dealer. Put the jack under the trans, in line with the driveshaft with a piece of 2x4 on top of it the length of the pan or longer, and jack it up to touch the trans. Unbolt the trans from the engine. Build some blocking up beside the jack on both side to touch the trans and pull it back from the motor.This is where the patience comes in. Wiggle and pry and use the jack work the trans back, you should be able to 4-6 inches to work in. Use some wire and run it across the torque converter so it won't slide out. Remove the flywheel. When you replace the flywheel torque the bolts to 60 lbs. If you over tighten them the center of the flywheel will start to crack and break.
Slide the transmission back to the motor, remove the wire when you are close.If you can't get the trans tight the torque converter may have slide out. You will have to pushon it and turn it at the same time and it will click into place. Put your bolts back in the trans loosely,leave the jack in place for adjustment and remove the blocking. Put your torque converter bolts back in and tighten them. Tighten your trans and put everything back together. Hope this helps.
