I know this isn't a chevy but its a GM Product.

I was hoping somebody could give me a tutorial or how to on taking the engine and tranny together out of the car?

Its got the 3.4 liter engine 3400. I just put new heads and intake on the car last year and the tranny isn't shifting right and clunks like no other when engaged.

I already have the tranny to put in it. Id just hate to have to disconnect everything from the suspension and have to take the sub frame out just to change the tranny and much rather pull it out as a unit swap then lower back in.

thank you

You have to drop down the subframe and pull the trans out, support the engine with a cross brace from strut tower to strut tower.

Won't come out the top as an assembly, It is still a tight fit with the engine removed out the top.
