manual transmission removal

Anyone know if there is enough room to remove a manual transmission (2010 patriot) with typical garage floor jack and jack stands?

If you lift it high enough there is, but it won't be easy, it's heavy. Much better to have it on a ramp and use a transmission jack

I have had the notorious transmission whine for about the last 30,000 miles. I have 167000 miles now. Transmission has been making terrible clanking and grinding noises in every gear now. Still driveable but noise is almost unbearable. Also when on steeper grades it seems i am losing power or feels like its slipping a bit. Basically was wanting to try and replace transmission on my own to save money (shops around here want 2500-3000 to swap out). So looking at options.

Manual transmissions don't/can't slip--that would be the function of a clutch. Have you access to a general automotive shop that would do an analysis? Where I live, there's a "performance" shop that has great diagnosticians--you should be able to find one where you live.

Yeah. Perhaps clutch is on way out? Has it ever been replaced on this vehicle?
