What we did at the dealership was use a long pry bar and make a slight dent in the body just above the bolt.This is the one on the drivers side.Then use a swivel socket to remove the bolt.Not a socket on a universal joint but a swivel socket.It is a 15mm and a long extension.They only gave us about 8 hours to r and r the engine on this babies and if it takes you longer your working for free.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Bellhousing bolts


Which one? Lower rear side? It requires a 36 inch long, 1/2 inch drive extension and an 18 mm socket with a good sized breaker bar, it's REALLY tight. You get it from the passenger side wheel well

1995 blazer transmission change out


There are like 6 bolts around the bell housing that bolt the transmission to the engine. Two transmission lines that need to be removed from the transmission, linkage for shifter, driveshaft, started,(disconect the battery) torque converter bolts and a few other small conections. The main thing is that when you are assembling it that the converter is all the way in the transmission. If not, the transmission will not **** to the engine and you may try to tighten the bolt which will bust the ears off the bellhousing on the transmission. Just don't force anything.

Yesterday my car's Battery sign shows up hile driving, when I check there was crack in the radiator's upper plastic cover about 4 inches and also accelrator belt broke, so question should I fix...


First, if the radiator is not leaking you don't need to do anything to it. Most of the time the plastic cover is so that people don't get burnt by the hot metal radiator.

I think you mean the alternator belt, not the accelrator belt. You can replace it yourself, by loosening the bolts holding it tight and then sliding the alternator towards the center of the engine. Then put the belt on and using something long and straight move the alternator to the outside of the engine and the alternator belt is very tight. Then tighten the bolts. Make sure that it didn't slip while tightening them and then start the car and make sure that the belt is tight and not wobbling.

I've replaced many ball joints, and never used a torque wrench. Just make them tight. If yours are the type with cotter pins, then you make it tight and slip in the cotter pin.

Need instructions for installing a 1994 ford tauras 3.0 transmission


have a shop do it? but if you absolutely need to do it yourself.

lift vehicle at least 30 inches off the ground and remove front wheels. detach balljoints and use engine support system to ensure engine does not change position. it will be necessary to use a system that is positioned over the engine rather than under.

remove the subframe from beneith the car. it should have 4 bolts and some minor brackets connecting it to the transmission.

remove electrical and linkage connections from transmission.

remove half axles

remove lower bellhousing cover. disconnect torque convert to flywheel bolts.

remove bellhousing bolts while transmission is supported and seperate from engine.

to install reverse proceedure.

if these directions are not sufficient for you then i would recommend spending the 20 bucks on a manual you cheap skate.

Radiator fan has broken blade need to change out the fan, need instructions on how to do it. I have the fan...


Remove the upper half of the fan shroud to access the radiator fan. The fan should be held on by 4 bolts to the clutch fan. Unbolt the fan from the clutch fan and remove the fan, when installing use a little lock tight to ensure the bolts don't come losses and put everything back on revers. Good luck and hope this helps.
