Hi there,

The torque converter should just lift out, but if it is bound up on the splines due to low oil overheating, you will have to fashion a slide hammer or or brace to get some purchase on and attach to the T/C to drive plate mountings, this may give you extra purchase, if in doubt hand it over to a trans shop as you don't want to damage the pump or drive with to much force.
