Where is the access to the torque converter bolts on a 31th trans in a Caravan?
Why the concern for converter-to-flexplate bolts ? Are you removing the transaxle ? If so, the total removal of Everything holding the trans-to-engine brackets, starter, and peripheral equipment
(cruise control, throttle cables, and such), are removed.
PRECAUTION: SUPPORT ENGINE & TRANSAXLE WHILE REMOVING ENGINE/TRANS BRACKETS, PILLOW MOUNTS, AND STRUTS. 18mm BOLTS CAN BE ACCESSED BY
REMOVING A SMALL 10mm BOLT HOLDING THE INSPECTION PLATE THAT COVERS TORQUE CONVERTER. USE AN 18mm SOCKET & BREAKER BAR ON DAMPENER BOLT TO HOLD - WHILE LOSENING EACH CONVERTER BOLT - TURN 90* AND
LOSEN THE NEXT BOLT, REPEAT......
The Torque Converter is part of the transmission, not part of the engine. The torque converter needs to come off with the transmission. You need to remove the starter to access the torque converter bolts/nuts and separate it from the flex plate. Besides loosing all of the fluid in the torque converter, you stand to damage converter seals and/or the pump if the converter isn't properly installed in the transmission.
How do you access the bolts connecting the flywheel to the torque converter on a 96 Nissan Pathfinder?
If the torque converter is loose it can do alot of damage to the transmission too. My ex- had to replace the transmission because the bolts were not put in correctly when someone else had changed something out. He had to put in a new transmission and torque converter. If it is running too rough you may have to change it all out. Check the bolts first to make sure everything is tight. If it…

After you have removed the cover from the lower half of the torque converter housing and driveplate you can remove the four bolts that secure the torque converter to the driveplate. Remove them one at a time by rotating the engine so that each bolt comes into view at the bottom where you have removed the driveplate cover.
pull engine, unbolt torque converter from flex plate (3 bolts), fill new torque converter with ATF fluid(so it dont start up dry), place new torque converter on to the transmission input shaft, reinstall engine, from underneath now u can spin the engine over by hand to line up the bolt holes and tighten the torque converter to the flexplate.
on the bottom of the at the front of the trans. there is a cover which is (commonly) called a dust cover (not trying to sound like a smart ass) remove the dust cover on the bottom to acess the converter bolts. you need to rent or buy a tool that wil help you turn the flywheel. If it is a diesel, there is a small round access hole on the passenger side of the…
Remove the driveshaft from the back of your Chevy transmission. Remove the transmission mount retaining bolts. Remove the retaining bolts from the Bell housing. The transmission can then slide backwards. Don't forget to unbolt the torque converter from the flex-plate and remove the torque converter with the transmission.
I assume you have the transmission out of the car. It has to be out to replace the torque converter. The old torque converter will just pull off, but you may have to spin it back and forth a couple of times. When you install the new one, slide it on the shaft and spin it back and forth while pushing it towards the transmission and it will slide back towards the transmission. You have…
You are changing a transmission out of a 1998 Ford Windstar 3.8L you have comepletely disconnected every thing that you know to be holding the tranny in but cant get it to drop?
It depends if it is automatic or manual, and if it is in the car or out of the car. An automatic transmission is attach to the engine only by bolts around the "bell housing" and bolts attaching flexplate to the torque converter. First remove bolts from the flexplate to the torque converter. You can do this by removing the "inspection plate" which is behind the engine under the front of the tranny. It should…
pull the dust cover off the transmission and the converter bolts are easily accessable from there. there are three nuts and bolts that hold the converter to the fly wheel. probably 9/16 head bolts. turn the motor by hand until you see one.... tighten it and rotate motor again by hand until you see the next... tighten it and turn it to the third... tighten it and then reinstall dust cover
To replace the torque converter your going to have to take the transmission out of the car. It bolts to the flywheel on the engine. All you have to do is slide it off the shaft and put the other one on turning it and pushing in at the same time. You will feel when it slides all the way back on the shaft.
Disconnect negative battery cable. Raise vehicle on a lift or use a floor jack and put on jack stands as needed to keep vehicle from falling on you. Mark the driveline's rear U joint assembly and the yoke to keep it balanced when installing driveline back. You'll have to pull the transmission next. Some models have an inspection plate that you can take off to reach the converter's bolts. If so, you'll need something to…
