alignment sleeve from block to bell-housing, 2.5L

Recommended Posts

There are two alignment bushing/sleeves in the back of the engine block that align the bell-housing to the block. I went to remove one with a pair of pliers and it just crumbled, now what do I do?


How important are these? Where might a person find a replacement?

Not sure if a dealer would still be able to get that part for you or not, but I would NOT install a tranny without it. Auto or manual, I can foresee all sorts of long-term problems that could grow out of a slight misalignment. Remember, Detroit counts pennies. They do NOT put anything into a motor vehicle that they don't think is absolutely necessary.
