You have to disconnect the trans from the engine. there are bolts all the way around the trans, some hard to get to from underneath but you can do it. Then you can split the engine from the trans and move all of the wiring and hoses out of the way. You should be able to pull the engine separate from the trans.

That being said, it is so much easier to pull the engine and trans as 1 unit and disconnect while it is out of the car.

Can I remove the automatic gearbox from my corolla 4AGE 20v Blacktop to change the crankshaft seal without removing the engine Thank you in advance

Any thing is possible if you have enough jacks and supports. Depending on which side your trans is on, lift the car, remove wheel, remove Axle, make sure to drain fluid before removing axle, may have to loosen strut assembly to remove axle. Once that's out of the way, proceed to remove the trans linkage and all the bolts from the trans housing,once all the bolts are removed, with a trans jack under the trans, proceed to wiggle the trans until it's loose and pulled back and out. So I'm guessing that the shaft seal is the rear engine seal?

Do I pull the fan assembly out still attached to the radiator?

that depends on what year, model and engine, but you usually have to remove the fan assembly first to get to things attached to the radiator (trans lines, hose clamps), then you pull the radiator

1994 Chevy c1500 engine removal

First thing, drain your cooling system. Pull the radiator and the hoses. Take your trans. lines loose. There are little horse shoe type clips where they go into your radiator. You need to take the radiator out. Unhook your battery. Unhook all wiring on the top of the engine like alternator, throttle body, all your sensors. Drop your exhaust manifold pipes down. Take your torque convertor bolts out. Take all your bell housing bolts loose, be sure you support the trans. first. Hook a chain to your engine. Unhook your 2 engine mount bolts. You may want to take the fan assembly off of it. Separate the engine from the trans.. Don't pull too far up, but pull the engine up above the mounts, then pull forward toward the front of the truck. It's not too bad a job. Good luck! Phil

hola senior q tal

mi encanta ayudarte :

Changing the clutch is a big job. If you don't have a lift and tranny jack I wouldn't reccomend attempting the repair. If you have the right setup it does not require engine removal. However, you could remove the engine and trans together and then separate them outside of the engine bay. First, you need to remove the ball joints. This is done by removing the wheel and using a ball joint separator tool. Its a "U" shaped tool that fits underneath the ball joint boot. There is an air tool that can do this. Once you remove the ball joint, you need to remove the driveshaft from the hub. This is done by holding the hub assembly by the brake rotor and pulling towards yourself. The driveshaft may come out of the trans first so be careful not to damage the spline on either end of the driveshaft by dropping it. Once the driveshaft is removed, repeat this procedure on the other side of the front end. You need to remove the slave cylinder from the clutch fork. Two 10 mm bolts hold it on. Next, remove the shifter cables. Now with , you can start removing the trans bolts. First, support the trans from the bottom with the jack. Next, remove the trans to body mount. This bracket is located near the battery. If you look in front of the battery you will see it. Remove and check the jack. You may need to adjust the jack to support the weight of the trans. Next, remove the trans to engine bolts. Look for where the casing for the trans and engine block meet. You will find the bolts there. Remove all the bolts and the trans should start to move a little. With the jack supporting the trans, start to move the trans away from the engine block. Once you have separated the trans from the motor, lower the jack slowly making sure the trans is balanced on the jack plate. Get the trans to a stand or appropriate resting place to remove the clutch assembly
