Hi there,

This sounds terminal, have the transmission removed & checked out, I would not try to run it as if the oil pump is still working you are sending metal shavings thought the transmission doing even more damage.

Does a guy have to drop the engine to remove the tranny? Doesnt look like there is enough room to remove the spline.

Hi there, with the drive shafts removed and the engine transmission mounts removed the engine and trans drop down enough to remove the trans only, with an auto there is no input shaft like a manual, the torque converter bolts onto the drive plate so you only have to move the trans back just a small amount to be able to remove it.
