How to install a torque converter in a 2000 2.5Lt on Ford ranger 2 wheel drive?


You need to remove the transmission to do this. Remove the inspection cover at the junction of the engine and transmission to get to the bolts to disconnect the torque converter from the drive plate (the part with teeth that the starter engages). Remove the driveshaft, then the transmission. The torque converter will come out with the transmission. Pull the old torque converter from the transmission, and install the new one. Ensure the torque converter goes all the way into the transmission/hydraulic pump. Reinstall the transmission, ensuring that the torque converter is still free to turn during the entire installation process, especially while drawing up the transmission to the engine. Once the transmission is bolted up, reinstall the bolts holding the torque converter to the drive plate. Reinstall the drive shaft and the inspection cover.

If you haven't done any major mechanical work on a car before, seek the help of someone who has. You will need a hoist or a jack and jack stands, and a good set of tools.

How hard to replace starter on 3.4 liter 1997 chevy lumina sedan?


Here are the instructions on how to replace your starter.

WARNING Remember that the positive battery cable to the starter motor is electrically "hot" all the time. You must open the circuit by disconnecting the negative battery cable before servicing the starter motor.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the front lower air deflector panel by locating the deflector retainers. These are push-in retainers and should be carefully pried loose. Remove the ambient temperature sensor, if equipped.
  4. Remove the two torque converter covers. They are retained by small screws.
  5. Remove the starter solenoid "BAT" terminal nut (the large one) and disconnect the battery positive cable from the starter motor. Remove the S terminal nut and disconnect the solenoid wire.
  6. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts. Use care. The starter is relatively heavy. Do not allow it to fall. Take note of any thin metal shims between the starter and engine block. They may be required at installation.
To install:
  1. Verify the correct starter motor has been obtained. Position the starter motor, including any shims found at removal, to the engine block and install the mounting bolts finger-tight until seated. Torque the bolts to 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm).
  2. Position the wires to the starter. Install the nuts finger-tight, then tighten the starter solenoid "BAT" (heavy cable) nut to 84 inch lbs. Tighten the starter solenoid S terminal nut to just 20 inch lbs. (2.5 Nm).
  3. Install the torque converter covers and tighten the torque converter cover screws to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  4. Install the front lower air deflector panel by pressing in the plastic retainers.
  5. Lower the vehicle.
  6. Connect the battery negative cable. Start the engine to verify correct operation.
