I'm going to take a guess that you just removed the bottom inspection plate? That works on GM's and such, or at least the older ones, but not on these. There is a torque converter bolt access cover on the other side of the transmission adapter. By the heat exchanger. It is held in place by two 10 or 12mm bolts. Remove that and you will have access. Then I would use a flywheel turner, or barring tool to rotate and access all of the bolts.
I usually loosen them all just a little bit first, then pull them out. don't back them out too much the first time around, or they will catch on the engine/transmission adapter.
Hope this helps.
