It is easier to do if you install the torque convertor to the transmission and then attempt to bolt it to the flywheel. You will have to turn the convertor or flywheel to line up the bolt holes.

You have to turn the torque converter back and forth while pushing in on it. The last thing to engage is the front pump drive lugs. This has to be done before installing the transmission in the car (or bolting it to the engine block) -- the transmission and torque converter are installed as one single assembly after the torque converter is installed into the transmission.

What is it if your car starts and runs but shuts off when put in gear?

This was a common problem on mid to late 80s' GM cars...The torque converter lock up clutch does not disengage and when you put the gearselector into drive the Torque converter clutch stops the motor. The test for this problem is to put the drive wheels up in the air-put the car in gear and see if the motor kills. If not then the Torque converter clutch is stuck.. The simplest repair is to unplug the Torque converter plug on the outside of the transmission then the Torque converter clutch will usually disengage. If you could tell me what make/model/year and motor that you have i can be more specific. Hope that helps.. Good luck.

What is A torque converter?

a major part of an automatic transmission... A torque converter is what couples the engine to the transmission. It acts a little bit like a clutch and allow the engine to drive the transmission. At slow engine speeds, like at idle, it slips so the engine will not stall while the transmission is in gear. As engine speed (RPM) increases it allows the engine to drive the transmission. This is just the basic idea of what a torque converter does.

What would cause a Nissan Altima transmission to hesitate when putting it into drive or reverse?

I was told by my mechanic that the transmission hesitating after putting it in drive after reversing is a sign of the transmisison dying. ---------- Check transmission fluid. When the fluid is low there is not enough in the torque converter, so when you go to reverse or drive you have to rev the engine before it moves to compensate for less fluid in the torque converter.

If it jerks then dies, it could be the lockup torque converter is stuck and whenever you put it in drive it's "direct drive" without the advantage of a torque converter. That only applies if the engine is running well and there are no other symptoms. As always, check for a computer diagnostic code using a code scanner.
