1988 Nissan Sentra mileage: 140,000. I can't get the engine to come free of the trany, why? I have disconnected everything I can see on the outside but it still won't come free. I am replacing the blown engine myself, or I am trying to.

Do you
have the same problem?

First double-check to be sure all the bell housing bolts are removed. The transmission may be stuck on the dowel pins that align the engine and transmission. If so, use a pry bar to pry them apart.
