Do I have to take the transmission out to put it in
Hi there. The transmission needs to be removed if you are removing an engine (front wheel drive), removing a torque converter (automatic) or removing a clutch (manual). Anything else like removing an engine in a rear wheel drive, shifter, or transfer case does not require removing the transmission. If you have a rear main seal leaking, the transmission and clutch or torque converter along with the fly wheel or flex plate needs removed to access the seal. To remove an oil pan to the engine, the transmission does not need to be removed, however, some bolts from the transmission inspection cover may need to be removed to access the bolts on the engine. If you need further assistance with removing a transmission to install a part or replace a part, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
