You are talking about the transmission flex plate and the accessory cover that is bolted to the bottom of it. That accessory cover is for gaining access to the Torque converter bolts when removing the transmission. Junkyard or dealer item, if it can be purchased without buying the whole flex plate

Trying to figure out the best way to change the fluid in a torque converter


their should be a drain plug in the bottom of the torque converter accessed by removing the metal plate at the bottom of the bell housing facing the engine sump

Transmission oil change


I take it you are talking auto transmission. Un do the drain plug in the box sump or if you do not have one remove the sump. replace filter in the sump . replace the sump with a new gasket and refill the sump. IF there is nothing wrong with the transmission and you only want to change the oil the best practice is to take it to a auto transmission shop where they can change the oil with the engine running and this changes the oil in the torque converter as well giving you a complete oil change. IT is more expensive as more oil is used but it changes all the oil and not just a part of the system. If your are talking manual, then remove the drain plug in the bottom of the gear box and when all the oil is out replace the plug tightly and remove the filler plug in the side of the box. Add oil until it runs out of the filler hole and when it stops replace the filler plug tightly. Use the correct grade of oils in both cases.

I have an oil leak from the engine. what could the problem be


Check the sump gasket at the rear of the sump tension sump bolts. Check that the rocker cover gasket is not leaking down the back of the engine and giving the appearance of a sump leak. Rear crank seal would be another point of leak and front input shaft (clutch shaft) seal leaking. Check the engine oil level and correct if necessary and check gear box oil level and correct if necessary. If you have an auto the oil will be pinkish and indicates a torque converter to gear box seal leaking.. Either of the shaft seals will require the box removal for repair.

Overfill transmission fluid in daewoo lanos...its now hard to get the high gears...what do I do now to solve the problem?


There is fluid level plug at front of motor under the oil cooler lines(11mm bolt accsessed from under car) Im not sure the proper way to check but ive read from other people info supposedly from the manual that at operating temp, car level on stands while running, remove plug if no oil add ,if too mutch let it out till it stops? Ive got same car/motor/ gear box and have just changed auto sump gasket/filter/radiator and am trying to find correct procedure as well. I figured there would be some still in tourque converter so i added about 8 litres(bloke at auto shop looked in manual takes 11.5 litres totally empty), wamed up, loosened plug and at least half srpayed/dribbled out (it blasted out when totally removed) so ive stoped at that and not sure if the right way to be checking with it running as it seems to be pumping out. let me know how you go. They stupid for not making it with a dipstick.

When changing a pump rotor, tourque converter, gasket and filter on the transmisson, would you have to take apart the transmission to get to any of them?


There is nothing called a pump rotor in this transmission pump.It has a gear type pump with and inner and outer gear.You would need to remove the pump from the front of transmission to perform this repair(suspicious that it would need pump gears and not have major internal transmission damage, never seen that in 25 years of rebuilding)but would not have to completely disassemble transmission.The filter can replaced by removing pan on bottom of transmission and the torque converter fits into the pump at the front of transmission.You would need to remove transmission from the car to install torque converter.Are you trying to fix a problem or understand a repair that has already been preformed?Let me know if I can help.Good Luck!

Narrowing it down.


The torque converter slips more than normal only if the oil level is really low - check that. Otherwise the problem is clearly with the pressure plates - and those can be replaced, you don't need to replace the entire tranny for that.

How do i replace the gearbox of a holden VR?


Taking out the tail shaft from the rear diff but before pulling out of the gearbox Drain the oil from the box,take out the shaft,Take off the battery earth lead,and now the starter motor.and the bottom metal plate at the bottom of the bellhousing (should be 4 small screws. and undo the 4 bolts on the flywheel metal plate which hold the torque converter on to engine. undo the bellhousing bolts and the top hose on the radiator ,and the gearbox X member and let down g/box slowley and slide it off WITH converter on the box ,
When refitting the other box its all in the reverse of removal (ALL OF IT) as well as the converter on the gearbox before it goes in as it fits on the shaft and turn it around and keep going untill it slips into the 2nd lot of splines and in line with the bell housing face.(Do not damage the g/box seal).

LEGACY 2.5 AUTO GEARBOX REPLACEMENT


hi there, needs to be the same number. computers need to match. tourque converters are different from 2.0/2.2 to the 2.5 engines. also shift points are different between models so needs to talk to the dash perfectly. hope this helps.
