Having problems with your 1995 Nissan Pathfinder ?

Torque Converter to Driveplate bolts

\015 Well I am trying to get the engine out of this PITA. The book makes this sound easy and the picture it has shows easy access to the bolts. But mine looks nothing like the picture, I am guessing they used a 4 cylinder for the picture but mine is a V6. I have everything out of the way and the engine and tranny are separated about 1'', I just cant get a tool in there to get the dang bolts out to completely separate the two. ANY advice would be most appreciated. Thank you.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 19-08-2019
