After changing the dual mass flywheel on my xtrail it showing crank sensor error code

No year make or model. But if your crank sensor is mounted between the engine and transmission (Dodges). You could have damaged it when putting the transmission back on. I don't normally remove them, But I do make sure the transmission is lined up before shoving in on the engine.

Flywheel removal

Not an easy job for the inexperienced. You need to clamp the springs on the front struts so they won't damage the CV joints on the drive axles when you take the engine weight off them. You need to remove the AC compressor without letting the freon out. Same goes for the power steering pump. Disconnect both radiator hoses. It's a good idea to remove the hood to give clearance for the engine hoist. Disconnecting the battery for a long time will erase the saved stations on the radio, so be prepared to reset them after the job is done. Disconnecting throttle cables and cruise control cables are next. Then electrical wiring harnesses need to be disconnected. Now you remove the bolts from the engine mounts and the transmission bell housing. Out comes the starter and the flywheel cover. Take out all the bolts that attach the transmission torque converter to the flywheel. Hook up the engine hoist and gently lift the engine slightly to separate it from the transmission. Continue lifting the engine away from the transmission while keeping the torque converter from separating from the transmission. Once the engine is clear of the car you can unbolt the flywheel and replace it. Simple ... huh

Engine vibration intake

check to make sure you have the correct flywheel, these are matched to the engine and is done with or without weights depending on wether or not the engine is internally or externally balanced. also check your motor and transmission mounts.

A friend took the flywheel off the motor that I'm trying to get back into my 1999 ford escort. I'm trying to figure out how to re- install it. Does the flywheel go on first then the plate behind...

I"M not bsure what plate you are referring to, I think it may be the locking tab plate for the flywheel bolts, is the flywheel goes on first then the holding bolts go through the locking plate & when the bolts have been tightened up the tabs on the locking plate are bent over the head of the bolts to stop them from coming undone, you need to make sure that the tabs are very secure on the bolt heads, use a small hammer to hit them down unto the bolt heads.......hope this helps.......cheers.

Most I have seen have "flywheel side" printed on the inner surface. If it doesn't then the longer portion of the center "spline" goes back towards the transmission

Can I swap an engine from a automatic into my standard trans. car?

The answer is yes you can as long as the engine is the same. What you will have to do is to change out the flywheel from your old motor to the new one, as the old flywheel has the pilot bearing in it. If you are changing out engines, I would recommend that you replace the rear main oil seal, water pump and timing belt so that you will be basically issue free when it is installed. I would also recommend that you replace the clutch, throw out bearing, pressure plate and pilot bearing as well so that you do not have any transmission issues. Changing the gear oil/transmission fluid, and cv axle seals would be a good thing to do as well. I hope that you have found this information useful as that is my goal.

How do I take the transmission out of a front wheel drive car

Yes you can, you have to remove the strut assembly on the side the transmission is on. get and engine hoist to assist in taking the transmission out when it is fully unbolted. Also to make it a bit easier try to take the weight of the engine with the hoist and remove the engine mounts so you can lower the engine to get the transmission out easier.
NOTE: Don't forget to unbolt the torque converter from the flywheel before you pull the transmission out, so it all comes out as one whole assembly. Good luck
let me know how you get on.
