It does not, however the engine must be supported with an upper boom as the lower engine cradle must be removed.This boom holds the motor in place from the top.Once cradle is removed,transmission separates from the engine and is then dropped from below as well. The cradle is mounted with a 19mm or 3/4" bolt at each corner.You will need to unbolt steering rack,motor mounts and lower ball joints at the knuckle not to mention the exhaust system in order to gain access to transmission assembly....good luck

Check engine light on motor idles up and transmission will not shift to overdrive


Could be an idle air control valve,but to be 100%,you need to get the codes pulled and write them down. Most Advance auto parts stores will pull the codes for you for free.

PROCESS OF TAKING THE TRANSMISSION OUT.DO YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE MOTOR OUT ?


Usually not. As long as you can reach all the bolts that connect the transmission to the motor, then, no. There are usually two near the top of the bellhousing, near the floor and firewall, that are hard to reach (and hard to swing a wrench on), but (at least on the cars I have worked on) they are easier to get out than to pull the engine.

Now, if you are pulling the motor, on many cars it is easier to also pull the transmission with the motor, than to try to separate them and also support the transmission once the engine is unbolted. But the transmission is usually easier to pull by itself.

Pulling motor in 97 explorer do i have to pull transmission too? How many hours should it take?


just finished doing the same thing. i wanted the motor for my son in laws mustang gt. as the motor has the gt40p heads and intake. getting back to your question. no you don,t have to pull the transmission. just support it under the pan with a floor jack. after you disconnect everything else and pull the motor use rope through the transmission mounting holes and tie it up tight to the hood hinges. drop the jack and your set. the problem i always have with these is the exhaust manifold flange bolts. even after soaking them with nut buster they usually snap. if your not going to reuse them like me no big deal. otherwise heat them with a torch take out the broken studs and replace them.(about 8 bucks at autozone). it took us about 3 hours. but we have some experience.good luck.
