Q: engine and gearbox connection

asked by on

how is the engine and gear box connected after repair my mechanic is stuck
My car has an automatic transmission.

I would recommend that they get a subscription to AllDataDIY to look up the factory service procedure. They are connected via multiple bolts around the perimeter of the transmission and torque converter bolts connecting to the flywheel. If you would like to have the gearbox installed for you by another mechanic, a technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to perform this service.
