Re: Engine Removal Guide

My garage ceiling is 8.5' high, the opener hangs down 1', and I wasn't that close to it, so.... 7' should work.

Nice write-up. I will be pulling an engine this weekend and this is a big help.

So how smooth was the removal process? Were there any points during the process where you wanted to beat your head against the wall?? What was the most difficult part?

No head beating moments. Being my first removal, just figuring out where to put jacks to pull it all out took a little time, since I was being a little cautious so nothing tipped. And researching how other people did it.

Hardest part was probably getting the brake lines loose from the ABS/TCS modules without rounding off the heads. Someone mentioned using short quick blows to the wrench instead of applying constant pressure and that worked pretty well to "crack" them loose.

I didn't have any rusted on bolts either so that made it easier.

Re: Engine Removal Guide

Since Comcast was nice enough to not have storage space anymore, I finally rehosted the files. May be a bit obsolete at this point! Can't believe it's been 10 years.

You have to open them in Word or they look weird.

LOL, at least you are still around (and kind enough) to rehost them.

Re: Engine Removal Guide

Thanks. Maybe time for a "sticky", if that's OK?

Maybe add a note that the Pictures file is 114 MB?

In the "PDF versions" appears to be the same photo file, one in Word and one as a .pdf?

Just trying to eliminate any confusion (which may be totally on my part - old age is a b!tch).

The edits in the original post do not seem to be working "Not Found Error 404"

Re: Engine Removal Guide

I appreciate this write up. I've printed it and keep it handy though I don't have to refer to it anymore. Here's a tip that I did this last time that may help someone.


It's amazing how much quicker things go every time I do another engine/transmission pull.

It's always been "fun" getting the strut tower in place.

This time I took 3/8" bolts, one 4" and one 3 1/2", cut off the head and screwed them into the strut mounting plate.

This allowed me to align the strut into its holes as I raised the combo into position. The two lengths let me get one started and the shorter one allowed me to then finalize the adjustment as I raised it.

It made the re-install go a little quicker.
