    Thanks.

    Buy a Haynes manual, separate your nuts and bolts in plastic baggies, label them if needed, keep track of your shit, don't lose parts, and sell any extra parts in the For Sale section, LOL.

    Engine lift helps.

      Unhook all your sensors, reach around in the back and shit, make sure to get 'em all. Unhook the exhaust, take the axles out, hook up the engine lift, ubolt the mounts, lift the engine, make sure not to get it hooked on anything, pull the engine forward and out of the engine bay..........

        these are all personal experience errors made during my 3 engine swaps

        pull them together, at an angle... taking out the engine only is a pain you don't need

        don't forget to disconnect the power steering pump...

        if available, don't forget to disconnect the clutch hydraulics...

        don't use a forklift... use an engine hoist


        if I think of anymore, i'll post them...

          also, instead of lifting, you can drop the subframe as well. i use a lift to support, and lower it to the ground after undoing the 4 bolts. then drag that bish outta there. 1hr job at most. unhooking shit takes the longest.

            Although books may say this can't be done, it can. It's a bit of a pain, but worth it if you plan on pulling both anyways.

              What's easier, pulling the engine and trans, or dropping the subframe, then removing the trans?
              When removing the engine and trans, does the rad. have to come out, and when removing the axles, will the trans fluid run out?

              Thanks.

                Sounds like dropping it, but I have never attempted such a thing.

                Yes, some if not a lot. Should do a trans flush anyways.

                    Out the top, if you're pullling them both, for sure....

                    Uhhh, yeah....before you do anything, drain the coolant, oil, and tranny fluid. It'll make the whole mess lighter as well

                        I'm really looking at doing a trans swap, I'm kind of thinking just removing the sub frame, then the trans, then reinstall it.

                        Thanks.

                          good luck... I hope you have something that will lift the rest of the car high enuff to do that...

                            Loosen the passenger's side cradle bolts about 2 full 360 degree turns. Remove the dirver's side subframe bolts completly, remove the strut completely (or tie it out of the way using a lift as an anchor...if you have a lift)...remove trans out of front left fender well.

                              Oh, if it's just the trans you're after....out the side it comes!
