Please contribute to the site and become VIP and you will have axcess to all factory manuals,and detailed information and by the looks of things since you are doing engine R/R's you will need them sooner or later.

SEM808G

As you can see you can remove the engine and transmission together as a unit and then separate them once on the ground..... its much easier this way. If you separate it before removing the engine then the transmission would only be supported by top tranny mount....which is NOT SAFE or good for the mount or your safety.

Default Re: Im Swaping My Engine Need Help

Have any of you replaced the clutch yourselves? Contemplating it and wondering if i really need to pull the entire engine out. The steps above may take me a week without access to a lift and unlimited tools lol

Really cant afford $400 to $600 in labor right now.
