Have an 03 Saturn Ion, engine hooked to cherry picker, Converter bolts off, but can't seem to push converter back into trans housing to separate from engine. Removed crank pulley and bolt for additional clearance. Haven't removed trans mounts yet. Would unhooking trans mounts & sliding trans toward outside of car provide enough clearance to separate engine from trans? My helper and I were stumped last night because it appears the converter is still "hooked" to flywheel, even though all 3 bolts are off. If we turn the converter, the flywheel turns right with it. Perhaps it is binding on the shaft or pump assembly?
