How do you remove an automatic transmission from a 1998 chevy s10 zr2? This truck has 117,000 miles on it, and it has a 4.3 motor. My husband has started taking the transmission out, but has hit a stumbeling block. He can't get it to actually come out.

Well first do you have a haynes or Chiltons manuel? If he has that it should provide much of the information in there. What sort of stumbling block has he run into?

I am trying to remove and replace the slave cylinder for my hydraulic clutch, so far I have taken off all of the bolts holding the bell housing to the engine, and I still cant seem to get the transmission/bell housing to come free. I have tried using a pry bar to separate the two and have successfully achieved about 1/2" of space between the two but is still feels like there is something else needs to be removed.

The job - Changing the flywheel
We are doing it in our garage with transmission jack.
Trying to unscrew the transmission so we can lower it and change the flywheel. Removed all of the bolts except TWO in the front. We can't reach them.

If they are the two at the top of the bell housing, I always have used a box end wrench. There was never room for anything other.

You'll have to readjust the cable.
Ensure shift tube and lever are free in steering column. To adjust linkage, remove screw and spring washer from swivel. Turn transmission lever clockwise to stop, then counterclockwise 2 detents. This is Neutral position.
Place selector lever in Neutral. Locate proper position using mechanical stops, NOT shift indicator pointer. Hold swivel against shift lever. Install spring washer and screw. Tighten finger tight. Avoid applying force in either direction (along shift rod or lever) while tightening screw to specification

Two ways. One is to remove the body bolts and jack the body up a bit in front. The second is to remove the trans cross member and then remove the engine mounts to drop the engine down. Then there is also the way I use. Long extensions and crows foot wrenches.
