How do I remove my fly wheel?


This is not an easy job and requires a substantial amount of knowledge. you will also need a decent floor jack or a transmission jack. The transmission must be pulled or slid back to get the flywheel off the engine. The first thing is to take the transmission dust cover off or in some cases the starter. The starter needs to come out anyway. This will reveal the torque converter bolts. You can use a pry-bar to turn the flywheel around so you can get to each torque converter bolts. The other option is to turn the crank with a socket and breaker bar from the front of the engine/harmonic balancer. Then you must drop the transmission or if you can slide it back enough to reach the flywheel bolts mounted to the crank. Once you remove the center bolts in the flywheel it should drop out.

Remove a flywheel


The clutch come out with the engine since it is bolted to the fly wheel. If you had an automatic transmission then you would need to remove the torque converter bolts from the flywheel so that the torque converter would stay in the transmission. If you pulled the manual transmission the clutch would stay attached to the flywheel. It's the same when pulling the engine.

Trying to take out an automatic transmisson out of a 1998 chevy S-10 got all the bolts and electrial and hoses lose but transmission is still hung up need help


Did you take out the bolts that connect the torque converter to the flywheel? If not, this is what is most likely hanging you up. Unlike a manual transmission where the clutch spins freely, the torque converter is bolted to the flywheel. To access these bolts, look on the bottom side of the bellhousing where the transmission mates to the engine. Tou should find an access hole covered with a black plastic plug. The hole should be roughly 2-3" in size. Remove this cover and manually rotate the flywheel using the accessory drive pulle bolt or have someone bump the key until the bolts are visible. If my memory serves me, there should be 4 bolts. Remove these and the transmission should come free. Just make sure it is properly supported to prevent injury. Hope this helps out. Have a GREAT day!

There isn't enough room to pull the engine without removing the converter. You can try to separate the engine and the trans far enough to get to the bolts with a wrench. Or remove the engine and transmission together and unbolt the two out of the car.

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.
