can I replace an automatic transmission in an '05 rio without pulling the engine?
MY son's transmission will not shift into the high gear (either 3rd or 4th) and overdrive. We tried just putting in new transmission fluid but I think we are faced with a new transmission. It has about 120,000 miles on it. Can it be replaced by pulling the wheel and doing it from that direction? Thanks.
okay, hoss, there's a boatload of bolts to the support carriage~
Thanks. I thought it looked like I could but was not sure. In the long run I think this would be better than pulling the whole thing out. More time than money for this project.
you've got to be good with a wrench and clean work area~ I'd have to meditate, and get into "the zone" if I were to undertake something like this...not impossible, but difficult~ I remember single handedly rescuing an Isuzu impulse that had coolant in the oil jacket~ good times....you're in for good times if you pull this one off alright~ couple of dozen bolts...take pictures~
Thanks for the suggestion. I certainly will keep it in mind. Not there yet. We are still gathering information.
