When replacing a automatic transaxle on 2006 Mazda how do I Mach up torque converter to the driveplate


The torque converter will set back into the transmission housing. When you put it on the front shaft you have to turn it and wiggle it and push it in toward the rear of that housing. As you spin it it will drop back what feels like two times and there will be almost no clearance in the bell housing between them. So when you put it back up to the engine, the torque converter will spin free and be away from your flywheel flex plate. Then you can spin it to align to where it bolts. If you are bolting up tansmission and the torque converter does not spin freely you will ruin the front pump. I would also change the seal in the front for the converter because leaving the old one may leak. (Put a little grease on it does'nt let new seal run dry on initial start)

What causes your wheels not to spin?


You have lost the flywheel bolts.
The flywheel is mounted on the crank shaft output.
The flywheel is also connected to the Torque converter (in an automatic transmission vehicle). The Flywheel in a 4WD Vehicle is the same as a 2WD - the main difference is the transfer case mounted at the rear of the transmission.
If the rsnfer case is broken/bad it could have the same effect, but you would most likely notice the pieces on the ground, or the broken pieces missing if looking underneath.
..
To address the flywheel/torque converter bolts - They are most likely still ijn the bell housing. You will find them when you take the transmission access plate off the bottom of the bell housing.
..
NOTE" They probably won't be in any shape to reinstall, and then they may not be that bad. Sometimes they never get tightened correctly, and eventually work themselves loose - a least likely schenario). Most often the come loose and get sheared off - which ,means no matter how much power you apply or how much you rev the engine in gear - IT JUST WON't GO...
...
Good news is - almost all the auto parts store sell replacement bolt sets (do not just buy some bolts and nuts with washers at the hardware store - otherwise you will find yourself stranded again real soon).

Torque converter ta


Torque converter is located in the bell houseing of the gear box (Automatic) You need to remove the inspection cover from the bottom of the bell houseing & it has several bolts attaching it to the flywheel (ring gear) of the engine. You will need to turn the motor by hand to get all those bolts. Then you have to remove the whole gearbox. then you can remove the converter from the bell houseing. MAKE SURE IGNITION IS OFF WHEN TURNING MOTOR BY HAND

How Do I Change a Transmissions Front Oil Seal on a 1978 Chrysler New Yorker with a 360 Engine and an 727 Transmission...


This involves removing the transmission as a unit, remove the lower access cover
on the bell housing and unbolt flywheel from engine. You will have to rotate the
engine manually with a socket and breaker bar. Drop the drive shaft from the
rear axle and slide it out. Unhook coolant lines from transmission and linkage
Support transmission with a transmission jack and make sure you have enough
clearance to lower it, unbolt bell housing. wiggle transmission slightly to
break seal between bell housing and engine, move the jack and tranny back about
an inch or two to disengage the pilot and pins, lower tranny onto jack .
bring it out into a good clean area and slide out the torque converter.
the seal can be pulled out with a seal puller, install new one with a seal driver
and reinstall torque converter carefully making sure it engages correctly and
does not sit proud of the bell housing. Reverse procedure. Make sure to use emergency
brake and chocking, these tranny's are dangerously heavy so be sure to use a jack.

Transmission removel


FRONT WHEEL DRIVE, OR REAR WHEEL DRIVE? REAR WHEEL DRIVE: REMOVE THE DRIVE SHAFT, AND STARTER! UNHOOK BATTERY FIRST! CARRAMPS WILL BE HELPFUL! LOOSEN ALL BOLTS AROUND THE BELL HOUSING TO THE BACK OF THE MOTOR, AS WELL AS THE TWO CROSSMEMBER BOLTS AT THE BACK OF THE TRANSMISSION! TAKE ALL THE BOLTS OFF THE TOP AND BOTTOM OF THE BELL HOUSING LEAVING TWO SIDE BOLTS IN UNTIL YOU GET A HELPING HAND, OR A FLOOR JACK TO HELP SUPPORT IT! REMOVE THE LAST TWO BOLTS, AND WIGGLE THE TRANSMISSION LOOSE! CONTINUE BACKWARDS WITH THE TRANSMISSION UNTIL IT CLEARS THE FLYWHEEL, AND LOWER IT TO THE GROUND!

BROKEN FLEXPLATE ON TOYOTA 4RUNNER HAVE BROKEN 3 IN LAST YEAR. THE BOLTS AROUND THE CRANK BREAK THE FLEXPLATE. WHAT CAN BE CAUSING IT.


G'day mate , misallignment, make sure the bell housing is in good clean servicable condition also when the box is out check that the bell housing to gearbox is flat clean and serviceable by removing the torque converter and unbolting bell housing if it is posible also is the starter straight and in to the correct depth for mesh as if it is to shy or in to far it will put pressure on the flywheel as the torque converter has room to move in and out but the flywheel is under great pressure at that point and will not like being flexed bac to accomadate a deep starter, on the bell housing bolt holes there may be hollow dowels in the bolt holes make sure these are clean, in the right place and actually there,hope this helps

Install starter


  • Open the hood and locate the starter attached to the transmission bell housing. To inspect and remove the starter, it may be necessary to work under the vehicle. Park the vehicle on a solid level surface and set the parking brake. If the vehicle needs to be lifted, support it with jack stands.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable, wrap the cable end with a shop towel and place it away from the battery post.
  • Mark the starter electrical wires for installation reference. Remove the starter wires.
  • Remove the starter mounting bolts. Remove the starter.
  • Compare the new starter with the old one to verify that you have the correct part.
  • Using a flashlight, inspect the flywheel teeth (through the opening in the bell housing) while an assistant turns the engine over by hand. You should replace the flywheel if any teeth are missing, cracked, or chipped.
  • Install the new starter. Torque the mounting bolts to the manufacturer's specifications.
  • Attach the electrical wires to the new starter.
  • Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Start the vehicle to verify the repair.

How to remove the transmission in a 1993 lincoln continental


this is an older rear wheel drive car you don't need to remove motor, i would along with these instructions get a repair manual (Haynes) for reference purposes, jack up the front of the car , support on frame with jack stands, remove battery cables, remove starter, all electrical plugs on tranny, then remove access panel for torque converter bolts located at lower front of bell housing, after access plate removal rotate torque converter to the point where you can not only unscrew converter bolts but also remove drain plug to drain converter. To stop converter from turning during removal of nuts you must lodge a large screwdriver between the flywheel gear teeth and the engine block at an appropriate location ( at starter location usually) after removing all torque convert.nuts jack up slightly or support trans with trolley jack and 1 ft length of wood under pan, proceed to remove all bell housing bolts except for the top one, remove that one last after removing the drive shaft of course, also make sure you remove the transmission crossmember after jacking up trans slightly. the idea is to allow the tranny to only be attached at the end of removal by the one top bell housing bolt and supported by the trolly jack and two bye four or better 3/4 in thick 1 ft X 1ft plywood board after unscrewing the last bolt the trans. can be pulled back away from the motor and lowered down. the installation is reversal but aligning the torque converter to engine can be problematic sometimes (patience and strength) you can do it!

96 Chezy Blazer Manual Transmission Removal


Did you remove the transmission lines too? did you remove the linkage from the gear selector to the transmission? And last. Did you remove the plate near the bell housing? If you remove that plate you'll see the flywheel teeth that the starter engages to to spin the engine over.. And you'll see bolts holding the torque converter to the flywheel. You need to remove one bolt.... Turn the engine over by hand at the crankshaft with a ratchet until the next bolt is in a position to remove. Remove it and continue till all the bolts are off.... Then try to remove the transmission... You absolutely have to unbolt the torque converter or it won't pull out. The space to get those bolts out will be fairly tight.. A ratchet wrench would be the fastest. A regular ratchet might fit.. But if it doesn't a box end wrench will work.

The transmission is locking the egien


Dear Matt: When you install the torque converter on the transmission, you need to spin the converter carefully by hand while pushing gently inward towards the transmission. As you are rotating the converter, you will feel kind of a "BUMP, BUMP, BUMP" as the converter splines meet up with and slide into place as they enter the torque converter. Once everything is properly seated, the converter should spin smoothly on the transmission without the need of supporting the end of the converter.
When you are installing the transmission, as you get close to mating the bell housing to the back of the engine, you can reach through the area where the starter nose would project into the bell housing and rotate the torque converter. As you are closing the gap between the transmission and the engine block, make sure that the torque converter can spin without any interference at all. Once the bell housing and block are mated flush you should still be able to easily spin the converter with a few fingers..........
You, at that point can align one of the converter bolt holes with the flex plate (flywheel) holes and put a bolt in by hand. DO NOT TIGHTEN ANY BOLTS UNTIL ALL THE BOLTS HAVE BEEN INSTALLED! At that point in time you can tighten the bolts.
The fact that you are experiencing the problem you have described, leads me to suspect that you don't have the torque converter fully seated. DO NOT FORCE ANYTHING! The converter, providing you did not try to bring the bell housing up flush in spite of the converter not moving, should be ok.
Good luck. If you make good, write in, I need some good reviews in this "Fixya" spot which I just joined. Right now I am listed as an apprentice. Kind of demeaning when you are nearly 60 and have been in the trade since 68. But, I have to pay my dues to get in and I must prove that I know which is my ????? and which is the hole in the ground. Good luck!
