If you are refering to the 4.0 liter s.o.h.c.,which I think you are. It does not have (tappets) lifters. Its a single overhead cam engine.(no pushrods or lifters)The values are opened directly by the cam.

The car has only one transaxle, AKA transmission, then no, you cannot remove the tranny without removing the tranny. If you mean without removing CV Axle or drive axle or Axle shaft or CV shaft (same thing) then the answer is still no. You cannot remove the transaxle without removing the drive axle/CV shaft.

Not without picking it over or breaking it. The switch needs to be turned, and the retainer depressed to remove the lock cylinder.
