Default Engine removal

Hi all,

I'm in the process of doing an engine in a 2000 Carnival. 2.5 K motor

Quick Qs...

Will the talk converter separate from the gear box?

If not I guess I go in via the starter motor and unbolt it from the flex plate?

Welcome to the forum. Please note my signature line below and fill in your profile. I have never worked on a Carnival (especially a diesel), but I have replaced engines in the Sedona. I'm not sure of the process differences between the gas and diesel engines, but I can tell you this, the torque converters always stick in the back of the crankshaft on the 3.5L gas engines. On the gas engine, there is an access cover below the oil pan where you access the flexplate bolts. Then what I normally do is go in the starter motor hole and tap on the torque converter with a rubber mallet. I rotate the converter manually to make sure I tap on all parts of the converter. This method has always worked for me to ensure it stays in the trans where it should.
