Drop the complete engine and subframe. it pays 16 hours.
you need to suspend the body best on a 2 poster ramp/lift , then remove the subframe and suspension rack etc, hold engine on a engine crane.
The subframe would be the same. The only thing with different engines would be engine mounts. But that has nothing to do with the subframe.
theres an easy way and a hard way the easy way is to undo all the subframe bolts on the n/s (passenger side) subframe this will allow you to drop box out or if you dont feel up to that remove gearbox from engine and rest on subframe completely remove the clutch . then with the engine properly supported remove the engine mounting (o/s top) and move engine as far left as possible this will allow the box to tip down past the engine this is a very tight fit and requires some pushing and pulling it becomes even more difficult to fit the gearbox like this as gravity is no longer helping you in my opinion the best way is option one
Support the engine and transaxle from above using a support bar. Raise the vehicle on a hoist lift. Remove the front lower control arms and swaybar bushings from the subframe. Support the subframe with tall jackstands. Unbolt the engine and trans mounts from the subframe. Remove and clips or brackets for such things as oil coolers or wiring attached to the subframe. Remove the susbframe mounting bolts, then lower the subframe from the car. Reverse the procedure. Get a wheel alignment. Be sure to tell whoever is doing it that you replaced the subframe as this information is critical for the alignment to come out the way it should.
Every time you engage the clutch, the clutch disengages from the transmission/engine. Which in term engine revs up, until you disengage the clutch.
The throwout bearing is bad. the throwout attaches to the clutch fork and presses into the clutch pressure plate when clutch is depressed. You will need to replace this and complete clutch assembly. Make sure that you have the flywheel turned while clutch is removed.
u have to remove the subframe ball joints and sterring rack its bolted to the subframe remove the entire subframe frm car so the it sits on the engine mounts with car propped up so u can acess the gearbox and disconnect the gear linkage
it comes out the top only
no the engine does not come out,you have to drop the front subframe..................
Like many big jobs, if you have to ask, you should probably take it to a pro. Basically though, you take off all the connecting wires and hoses, power steering rack lower joint and tierods, axles etc. lower the car onto 3 or 4 jackstands aligned with the subframe. unbolt the subframe and remove the engine/transaxle/subframe/power steering rack as a unit. then an engine crane is required to take the engine off the transaxle
To change the clutch you need to remove the engine, the transmission or both. The clutch is BEWEEN the engine and transmission and you can't get it off without separating them.
You drop the engine, transmission and subframe all together down and out the bottom of the car. Then separate the engine from the transmission on the floor.
No. You can remove the clutch and gearbox with the engine in-situ.
No, you need to get your clutch checked. At 70 in 5th gear you ought to be around 3200 or so. Cheers, Lloyd www.TunerTools.com
The easiest is to disconnect all the usual things, and drop the subframe from the van.
Remove with gearbox and suspension. Split off theengine from the subframe and gearbox. A northstar engine in an eldorado or Seville can be removed in four hrs.
If it is an electric fan, NO. If it is a mechanical fan test it to see. If you can turn the fan by hand with the engine not running it has a clutch.
It prevents engine cranking unless the clutch pedal is pressed.
unbolt tranny from engine clutch is between them
The clutch disconnects drive from the engine to the wheels. It is required to change gears.
If it will go into gear when the engine is off but not when the engine is running, the clutch is not disengaging. It could be the clutch, possibly warped or put in wrong, or it could be the hydraulic clutch mechanism.
Why don't you take it to a mechanic before you ruin your truck by riding the clutch? The chattering could be engine knock because your engine is out of tune. When you ride the clutch, the clutch slips and puts less strain on your engine as you are burning out your clutch.
can't be done without dropping subframe
