Pull drive line nuts off remove drive line have a baggie and a rubber band to put on tail shaft before removing drive shaft remove drive shaft put the baggie on pull bolts out of center transmission cross over remove bolts out of crossover unhook battery positive cable, disconnect transmission lines unbolt starter and wire up so as not to hurt wires and keep it out of your way.pull transmisson dust cover off remove three or four tork converter bolts off put then in baggie as they will run away when your not looking and are kicking around in the car. Pull 5 bolts out of bell housing put in baggie so you don't lose again, then if your lucky and don't have to pull exhaust pipe off then pull transmission fill tube out then use jack with a piece of plywood the size of the transmission oil pan and slide roller jack under tranny jack up till just barely touching and wiggle transmisson out till it gets past the ears on the bell housing then back it away and lower the tranny down slide back more and carefully pull tork converter out do not damage the front pump seal or you will have the pleasure of doing this again. I also hope your on concrete as it is much easier, A good mechanic using air tools can get it out in about an hour, let me know how long it takes you? and tell me how much you liked doing it! Is this your first time?

You have to remove the tranmission from the vehicle. This is a big job and should not be attempted with out the proper tools and lots of know-how. Every job is a little different and even licensed mechanics have to be prepared for unexpected surprises/problems.

The transmission torque conveter is bolted to the engine flywheel. To replace this the transmission has to be removed.

You can slide the transmission back enough to get to the torque converter, it still has to be done in the proccess of removing the trany but you dont have to take it all the way out, remember to pull ur dipstick tube out before you drop the tranny cuz finding a correct replacement is the hardest thing you'll do ,i bent mine and took 3 weeks to find one, and still had to be modified good luck

these cars have a major issue with torque converters.... the torque converter input splines are softer than the splines on the input shaft and it sheers the teeth off of the input side of the torque converter, i have replaced a ton of these for this problem... usually when you replace the torque converter every thing goes back to normal, what you need to do is check the fluid level while the engine is running, if the fluid level is really high than that is what happened because the torque converter failed and drained all the fluid into the pan... to fix it the transmission will have to come out and the torque converter will need replaced if you drain all the fluid out of it and look down into the center of the torque converter with a flash light you will see the splines missing...
