Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll assist you. I show two manual transmissions, do you know which one you have?
Expert:  chevygeorge replied 6 months ago.
D16 or Y4M?
Expert:  chevygeorge replied 6 months ago.
I'll opt out since it was moved to transmissions.

Is there an identification tag? I've replied multiple times

These are the ones I've got. If this diagram is correct, I could not locate any of the items in diagram 1. No orientation given, nor part identification. Will a regular engine lift work? Why in step 19 should I have the engine running after removing the starter?

Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
Yes the regular engine lift will work and 19 says to install engine lift and watch out for engine if it is hot. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.

Step 19 stupid. Car does not run. Clutch fried. Only asspower to move. If someone restarts engine, then they deserve to get burned. Back to diagram #1, steps 1-5. What is the orientation of it? Cannot locate anything in that diagram. General diagram notes to identify parts would help. Is there anything else?

Here is a picture of air cleaner housing and once you remove battery you should see bolts holding battery tray in place. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.-https://www.dropbox.com/s/gg7rg0pw2uwvppm/ac1.pdf?dl=0

Try again on link. That was for a 1993 Pontiac Firebird, V8. Believe me I prefer an older model car than this Korean POS! FW drive manual piece of crap.

Try again. Those are for a Oldsmobile Alero. I removed the battery pan and air cleaner housing, but I do not see what is in diagram #1, steps 2-6. What side of the engine is #1 supposed to be?

Expert:  Dan replied 6 months ago.
Here are instructions for the air cleaner housing https://www.dropbox.com/s/gg7rg0pw2uwvppm/ac1.pdf?dl=0 then once you have air cleaner housing you will see the transmission cable under it. It is under drivers side of car. Let me know how it goes, thanks.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.

Problems again. The air cleaner housing in on the passenger side and under it is only fender. Diagram shows brake fluid reservoir on passenger side (right), but it is actually on drivers side (left). Battery pan is on left side, but the diagram in original procedure does not match. If that diagram is supposed to be on drivers side, then air cleaner is irrelevant, but parts need to be identified on that side.
