Question ax4n transmission help

I got a 2001 ford taurus 3.0 dohc with 95,000 miles on it. I suspect the torque converter has given out. I'm in the process of dropping the transmission and this is a first for me. ive done several repairs before but no major engine or trans repairs. Anyway i have started out by removing everything i can in the engine compartment. I also have removed starter. I'm trying to figure out the next step. i know later ill support engine and drop sub frame but i havent gotten there yet.do i have to drain radiator to get access to bell house bolts? there is a huge black hose (seems like an antifreeze hose) in the middle of everything and is making access really hard. any suggestions or anything to help? ive read many posts on here and i just havent found the answers im looking for. please help me. im frustrated and no one seems to want to help or can help. i have more photos if needed. i would add but i have to resize them to upload
-Thanks J

If you're talking about the big hose in the center of the pic, iirc, that's the upper radiator hose. May do a search on here for torque converter, transmission (transaxle), and/or engine removal. Also check the forum topic finder and wiki. There are several tutorials with pics somewhere. May also pm member major.
