Can't get engine removed from transaxle


Can anyone tell me what to do here, it's attached to the transmission in the center and no matter how hard I pry it, it won't budge, just the outside, not the flywheel

It's on the input shaft, make sure you wiggle the transmission off straight.

Well I got it off the transmission, but in the process I snapped the back up light switch. There's two hoses that still need disconnected before I pull the engine, they are in the back and go to ac compressor I think it's called. Sorry, I'm still in the stupid phase. So am I okay to just disconnect those two hoses? I heard something about bad gasses getting out or something

Here's a picture of the sensor I snapped off

That looks like the VSS (vehicle speed sensor) and should have been located right near the rear transmission mount.

As for disconnecting A/C lines, you should properly have that done at an A/C shop, as they are harmful to the environment. If you do need to do it yourself, put a big rag over it and watch your face. There should be a release valve on each line, both high and low, to help purge the gases.

You're probably right, so is this fixable?

Yup. I'm guessing the bottom half of it is still bolted in to the trans?

If so, just unbolt it, MAKE SURE not to drop the bolt or anything else in the hole, and bolt a new one in.

Also instead of unhooking the ac lines you could just unbolt the compressor from the engine and let it hang to the side. If you do release the system gas you will need to replace parts afterwards if left open for extended periods Of time.

Do you need my help today? Maybe we can get the motor out and take the front case off to check those balance shaft bearings
