Question about Pontiac Firebird
My name is Mike. A couple times a day I go looking around to give some pointers to our clients (you).
Look at it your question from our point of view, you are asking for the procedure to perform a complex task without so much as supplying the make, model and year. For free. I was tempted to respond, "Unbolt it".
More is better:
If you are serious about getting an answer, include Make, Model of the product that's misbehaving and what type of product it is.
Describe your problem clearly, concisely and with as much detail as possible.
For future reference:
Often, a problem can be the result of a seemingly unrelated event. It is always a good idea to include a recent history.
Additional information such as what steps have already been taken, has the product ever worked, is it new, etc. can have a bearing on providing the best solution for your particular circumstances.
Remember, you are a key participant in this process. We are not there, you are. We depend on you to be our eyes and ears. We can only respond to what you provide us. Without you, all our talent is worthless. How's that for an ego build?
What you get out of the experience depends on what you put in to it. So help us help you.
It would be also be advantageous in your case to repost your problem so that it is correctly categorized and starts over at the top of the queue. This way it can be directed to someone with expertise in the area you need.

Remove the TV cable or transmission throttle cable from the carburetor or throttle body. Remove the upper bolt holding the transmission dip stick but do not remove the tube. Disconnect the negative cable to the battery. Drain the transmission fluid by removing the transmission pan. Replace the pan after draining the fluid.
Remove the shift linkage and the wires to the neutral safety switch. Remove the speedometer cable by unscrewing the cap at the point it enters the drive gear in the tailshaft. If it has an electronic speedometer, disconnect the electrical connector.
Install the engine support stand above the engine. Remove the CV joints. Remove all electrical connectors from the transmission. Remove the bolts in the torque converter. Place the floor jack under the transmission. Raise the transmission just enough to support it. Remove the transmission mounts. Lower the transmission enough to have access to remove all the transmission bolts. On a rear wheel drive vehicle, remove the bolts in the bottom of the transmission mount. Raise the transmission enough to remove the cross member.
Once the bolts are out remove the cross member and then lower the transmission. Remove the dip stick tube from the transmission by lifting up. If it is hard to come out tap its mounting bracket with something and it will come up and out. Support the transmission securely on the jack. Using a flat head, separate the transmission from the engine. Lower the transmission.
