Hello,

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

It depends on what is "stuck", a stuck engine or trans should not effect removal so I have a feeling you may be referring to the trans being stuck in the engine, make sure all mounting bolts and anything holding it in place are removed from there you can try spraying something like PB Blaster and allowing it to work in to hopefully aid in it's release. Sometimes a rubber/plastic tip mallet will help break them loose.

Thank you!
- Joe
