Loosen the rear trans mount and lower the back of the trans a little. Use a very long extension to reach the bolt from under the vehicle.

My antifreeze leaks out every two week

leaks to passenger floor
to garage floor,
or you mean, the coolant just disappears like magic.
disappears in the overflow tank?
and or actual radiator. top fille?. (no engine option stated, so...)

if rad has a cap, some dont, we remove the cap , engine dead cold
never hot, and look to see if its full, if it keeps dropping
the coolant loss can be ? (rapid, and 2weeks is rapid)

1: bad head gaskets, or worse cracked block/head.
running 50% antifreeze ratio> , is it cold there,????????????
2: A/T tranny the , tranny cooler can fail too, and put AF in the ATF.
that means look at dip stick on A/T is it pink or UGLY?

is it freezing there, no location stated, so cant guess.
if yes, is the coolant ever allowed to drop below 50% ratio?
got a coolant hydrometer, check it each late summer, ???
no? oops

How do you change a clutch in a 93 toyota 4x4?

Basically, you remove the hood, remove AC,remove Rad, remove Starter, setup a engine hoist and remove all bolts that holds tranny/motor.
Support Tranny and with the hoist having the weight of the motor slowly separate motor and tranny.
Once motor is free from tranny,there is a cage at the back of motor, remove and replace with new. 3 pieces Clutch,ClutchPlate, and the throw-out-bearing.
The reason for replacing is you do not want to disassemble again for not replacing an item.
Put it all back together

1) Loosing antifreeze 2) tranny shifts funny

if your exhaust is loose it causes car to run hotter, also if you are running the wrong gas in it, so check on that.HOWEVER your thermostat and water pump are the main suspects here. If you are losing antifreeze, it may be a blown head gasket which is No good, this is caused by your 2 main suspects here. Check oil and tranny fluid levels. you cant keep driving a car thats having problems, .. thats how you get bigger problems like blown head gaskets. TRUST ME. as a teen i owned 3 differnt cars, and had to chang head gasket on every one of them because of POOR MAINTENACE. check these things, and get back to me

Oil pan removal?

Im not sure if you are talking about the motor pan or the tranny pan. But I have lifted the motor and tranny together on a vehicle to change the motor pan and mounts before. I remember having to loosen the fan shroud. Undo linkage on the tranny and make sure the shifter boots were loose. The key for me was going real slow with the crane and having extra eyes around. It was a pain but it worked out.

Tranny has no pressure

could be the filter in the pan stopped up, would be worth checking but your pump probley went out which is a tranny rebuild. One more thing to check though unlikely is look to be sure the 3 bolts that hold the torque convertor to the flywheel didn't back out and fall out
