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.

How much fluid do we need to fell transmission

It varies by make. Remember most transmission fluid is locked into the torque converter and didn't come out even when you changed the filter. So knowing the capacity isn't helpful. Filling from a filter change usually doesn't take much fluid. Maybe 3-5 quarts. Just add fluid one quart at a time with the engine off. Start the engine with the transmission in neutral and check fluid level. Repeat this process until it reaches the cold full mark. Then start the engine and let it warm to operating temperature. Check the fluid level again, it should now be on the hot mark. If it's not add some more until it is. Remember all checks should be done with the engine running and transmission in neutral but you should only add fluid with the engine off for safety reasons.

Flywheel replacement

Easiest way to replace it, since it its a front wheel drive car, would be to remove the engine. most times its easier to remove the engine and transmission as one unit, then seperate them after they are removed, because there will be bolts that you WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET TO. This is a very long process, but to basically sum it up, and im sure to leave something out, so you will have to use your own judgement. Remove exhause manifold, fuel lines, front tires, rotors, brakes, tie rods, loosen nut on ball joints, loosen and remove bolts holding spindles to your struts,remove both front spindles. remove your cv axles, disconnet all sensors from wiring harness, remove the starter, remove motor mounts and transmission mounts. Remove anything that would break or bend when you lift out the motor and transmission, this alone will take a complete day for the average mechanic with no lift or air tools. once you have engine/transmisson removed, seperate by removing the engine to transmisson bolts. Then you will see bolts mounting the flyweel to the engine. Remove and replace, then put everything back. This will take another day. Then you can plan on spending 1 day to a week trying to find out what you have hooked up wrong, fixing broken bolts, etc.etc. TOW IT TO A SHOP, SPEND THE CASH AND LET THEM DEAL WITH THE HEADACHES. Again im sure you I have left lots of things out, so this process is way longer than just what I have said.

Oil leakage by the transmission &engine

Need to inspect closer and make sure the exact place the oil is coming from....Most common places that leak are around valve pan cover which is located on top of motor and in alot of cases can run down back of motor onto transmission or bottom or motor. Another place is the oil pan which is located on bottom of motor. If leaking from either of these you would need to replace the gaskets. Two other places that are common for leaks is the front and rear seals in the motor. Try cleaning bottom half of motor off with a degreaser in the area where you see yhe oil dripping and then you should be able to see exactly where it is coming from. If the leak is underneath where the transmission is bolted to the motor this would indicate that the rear seal is bad. To replace it you will have to take transmission out to do this and if this is the case and your truck has a automatic transmission have that seal replaced also. Yhe reason for this is if you have to take transmission out then you may as well change transmission seal also but remember only if the transmission is a automatic.....hope this helps and good luck....Please rate this post...

How do i change transmission in a 2000 grand am

it's a process that takes a long time to explain so i recommend that you get a repair manual for that vehicle ( $24.00 at local auto parts store) and it will also assist you on other info for the future, as well as you can read and study as you go at your own pace. make sure you support car safely with jack stands,make sure you support motor with a floor jack as well, do not crush or use oil pan as support. It helps to use floor jacks for motor and trans in case you need to work both units to manuever. also pay attention to the manual you purchase as if this is a manual transmission then certain manuals do not cover the removal and install of this trans. they cover a automatic but not the manual. That was a $24.00 lesson i learned as well.

How do I take a transmission out of a 1980 chevy truck? Can u take out the motor and transmission and transfer case at one time

All of this is usually removed at once the way I know of to allow more room to remove transmission bolts etc. Start by marking all hoses, lines and electricial connectors. then disconnect. Next find all mechanical connections, in example; connections from transmission to shifter and exhaust. Find suitable connections for engine hoist to lift motor. Keep in mind you will need to balance the transmission, but, it will be much lighter than the motor. Find and loosen motor and transmission mounts. Start lifting motor with engine hoist and remove connections to mounts as needed. When you are doing this be sure to stay out of possible pinching areas where you can be pinched or squashed by shifting weight. If you havent done so, I would remove fan and radiator because they can be easily damaged. From there lift the engine out, most likely it will take a little push and shove. Just be careful and you will get the job done!!!

98 Durango will not turn over, replaced battery, battery cables, had started checked. Just get a clicking noise at starter like a dead battery. Will start some times.

Sounds like a bad connection. Clean all the connections first then if you have a clicking sound coming from the PDC (fuse box) on the drivers side under the hood then it sounds like you have a bad starter .
As the relay is clicking that means the ignition switch is good. Just insure that the relay is good. There is a spare in the PDC you can swap and check out so its the starter Starter/solenoid combo.take your volt meter and check battery volts while the starter is engaged, if you see very little change from the static voltage it's likely the starter bendix is being egaged into the ring gear but the high current side of the starter is not working, this is likely due to a dirty or worn commutator or worn brushes in the starter motor. If you do see a larger drop in voltage( say down to under 9.5volts) you more than likely have a current flow issue, possibly a weak cell in the battery, or a shorted starter motor winding.My best recomendation would be to remove the starter motor, and the battery, take them in with you to your local parts house and have them both tested, most parts stores will perform these tests for free, on the possibility that hey can sell you something.
STARTER MOTORREMOVAL:-1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.2. Raise and support the vehicle.3. Remove the nut and lock washer securing the starter motor to the mounting stud on the transmission torque converter housing Starter Motor Remove/Install4. While supporting the starter motor with one hand, use the other hand to remove the upper mounting screw from the starter motor.5. Slide the automatic transmission cooler tube bracket forward on the tubes far enough for the starter motor mounting flange to be removed from the lower mounting stud.6. Move the starter motor towards the front of the vehicle far enough for the nose of the starter pinion housing to clear the transmission torque converter housing. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.7. Tilt the nose downwards and lower the starter motor far enough to access and remove the nut that secures the battery positive cable connector eyelet to the solenoid battery terminal stud. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.8. Remove the battery positive cable connector eyelet from the solenoid battery terminal stud. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.9. Disconnect the battery positive cable wire harness connector from the solenoid terminal connector receptacle. Always support the starter motor during this process, do not let the starter motor hang from the wire harness.10.Remove the starter motor from the engine compartment. --This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

They are pretty reliable. Transmissions sometimes have problems and battery changing, etc isnt easy. I have had 2 concordes and 2 intrepids, as well as a van from chrysler and for the most part they are fine except the transmissions. have had to change the transmission in 2 of the cars and the van (which takes a different one). Engines are good if taken care of. Rick

To replace the transmission you will need to:

lift the vehicle

Support the transmission using a hoist
Unbolt the motor mounts (There are 4 of them)
Lower the engine 8 - 10 inches
Unbolt the transmission
Lower the transmission
Raise up the new transmission and follow the steps in reverse.

Trust me, this is NOT fun :( the top transmission bolt is REALLY hard to get to.
