Would it happen to be one of the two bolts on the lower left (looking from the rear of the engine) "leg" of the crossover? The section of engine compartment harness that lays across the transmission, is right in the way of the lower bolts.

Are you using a swivel head, ratcheting wrench? If not, GET ONE!!! It will make things SOOO much easier.
