      Few things are as satisfying as removing exhaust bolts intact from a ten year old car. The four bolts that held the Y pipe to the exhaust headers have been removed on my 92 Explorer. The last major obstacle before the removal of the A4LD transmission. Tense moments ensued as the heavily extended breaker bar hobbled and sounds emanated that mimicked a cracking socket or shattering bolt. One 3/8 extension sheared, six were used in series to reach the bolts. Penetrating oil, good tools, or skill had nothing to do with it. Exhaust hardware only comes apart as a result of divine providence.

      Now comes the easy part as I attempt to rebuild my first automatic transmission.

      That is the one and only thing I will not do to any of my Cars/trucks!

      I hope you know what you are doing when you attempt this! If you do not, then I would seriouly think about taking it to someone that does know!
