Typically, when removing a transmission, differential or gearbox from a vehicle, you elevate the automobile or truck on a car lift (e.g., two-post lift, four-post lift). The transmission jack is then positioned centrally beneath the vehicle's transmission and raised slightly until the transmission jack lifting platform comes in contact with the flat surface of the transmission. After determining the transmission jack is centrally positioned and properly stable, the jack is then raised further to elevate the entire weight of the transmission, so it can be safely removed from the engine block. Once elevated, the hydraulic transmission jack can be raised further to allow adequate removal clearance. Prior to removal, it is important to secure the transmission to the lifting platform via straps or chains that are typically included with each transmission jack.
