How hard is to put a transmission in this car? on 1993 Buick Century

The old transmission needs to come out. The reverse has came out and I can't back up.

It depends on what you consider hard. The engine has to be supported, part or all of the front sub-frame must be removed, only then will the transmission come out from the bottom.

Lucky him, mine falls out before it could turn grey, lol. He might need some extra hands when removing and re-installing the tranny. Good luck with the project! Zee
