Answers :

All of this is usually removed at once the way I know of to allow more room to remove transmission bolts etc. Start by marking all hoses, lines and electricial connectors. then disconnect. Next find all mechanical connections, in example; connections from transmission to shifter and exhaust. Find suitable connections for engine hoist to lift motor. Keep in mind you will need to balance the transmission, but, it will be much lighter than the motor. Find and loosen motor and transmission mounts. Start lifting motor with engine hoist and remove connections to mounts as needed. When you are doing this be sure to stay out of possible pinching areas where you can be pinched or squashed by shifting weight. If you havent done so, I would remove fan and radiator because they can be easily damaged. From there lift the engine out, most likely it will take a little push and shove. Just be careful and you will get the job done!!!

I just recently was given an 1994 Isuzu Rodeo 5-speed manual from a private owner who just didn't want the truck anymore. The truck had not been used for over a year, just parked in one spot all that time. When I went to drive it home, I noticed that I had to practically take my foot completely off the clutch before it would shift into gears. After about 15 minutes of driving, I noticed the engine revving up like the transmission was stuck in whatever gear I shifted it into. By the time I go

My 90 year old pop has a 95 Sonoma. Ninety % of the time it runs fine. Ten % of the time it wont stay running when you take your foot off the gas. RPMs go straight to 0 and the truck stalls. Normally, with this truck, when you take your foot off the gas it will go to 500RPMs and hold steady and never threaten to stall. In it's failing mode it's as though it forgot to go into idle. It doesn't matter if the truck is cold or hot. Then as quickly as it started failing it will start working fine. Thi

When I back up my 1988 Chevrolet K1500 truck, it grinds to a halt with the sound of metal on metal. Is this the transfer case? If I put the rear transmission in park and move the 4wd back and forth between 4 HI and 2 LO a couple of times, and leave it in 2 LO for regular driving, I can then put it in reverse and it will back up. This happens every time I put the rear transmission into reverse. I'm not sure if it does it in 4WD. I just got this truck from my neighbor. Can I rebuild the transfer c

Transmission stops working when truck warms up When truck is driving for roughly 20 minutes to an hour and is warmed up, it downshifts itself into second gear and must be shut off for a period of time before it is able to resume driving at regular speed.

I have a 2005 chevy z-71 and the push button 4wd not working. When you crank the truck all lights on the 4wd switch light-up but truck will not go into 4wd at all. Also about the same time that occured, my speedometer stopped being acurate. shows 120mph some times and shows 0mph other times while driving. I was told one time that it was probably a actuator that went out and also burnt up my push button switch as well. Anyone have any suggestions? I need my 4WD.


On the full size, the front actuator is electric, not vacuum.When in 4wd mode, a switch on top of the transfer case conducts 12\015\012volts out to the actuator. Wire #50 (brown) is the 12v feed, and it\015\012conducts to the light blue w ... Chevrolet Silverado 1500

I am wondering if I need to take my 2007 chevy Impala in to the shop. Every time I go to put gas in my car it takes forever and i have to pump the gas slowly because it acts like it is full when it could be on empty.

Some one said it might be air in the tank, and if this is so how do i fix it?

Automatic transmission Hello there. My 1999 chevy malibu was garaged for 11 months and now is having some transmission problems.
