Don't bother. To rebuild the "bottom end", you need to have the crankshaft turned or at a minimum, cleaned and polished. You can't do that with the engine in the vehicle. To adequately do the "bottom end", you also need to have the rod bearings reconditioned, that means that you need new wrist pins and usually need to have the "big end" machined to undo the damaged caused by stretching of the rod. Once the engine is out and you've pulled the pistons to do the rod recondition, you may as well do the valves and check the cylinders for taper/wear. If the cylinders have any amount of wear, they should be bored and new pistons put back. Whenever the heads are off you should recondition the valves and guides and replace the timing chain... If you've gone that far, you should make sure the cam and lifers are ok and replace if necessary. If you've had a "bottom end" event, you should probably replace the oil pump... now you have a new engine.
the fuel filter is on the passengers side of the car by the right front wheel behind the bottom of the motor
Under passenger side by firewall.
I read that bad motor mounts can cause this knocking sound
Under the hood to the left of the blower motor mounted in the housing on the firewall...
it has 250 horsepower
the starter is on the driver side in the front of the motor near the transmission.
underneath the dashboard on the passenger side.
It is located top left of the motor if you are looking at it from the front bumper
On the passenger side of the car behind the glove box. Get to from the inside.
The blower motor on a 1997 Pontiac Bonneville is located next the evaporator core. It will be mounted behind the glovebox on the passenger side of the vehicle. Remove the glovebox, mounting hardware, and sensor clips. The blower motor will be able to be replaced.
passenger side of car under the kick panel under the dash
They are at the bottom.
This is a vertical unit directly behind the water pump on the passenger side of the motor.
did you check ur fusebox to see if the fuse burnt out ?? , or ur sunroof motor is bad
on a 3.5 v6 it is on the bottom of the motor.
don't think motor mounts will work - look for 92-99 3800
i need to know how to remove a blower motor from a 2002 bonneville.
if its the one im thinkin you are talkin about ,theres a spacer on one of the bottom bolts that comes out after you that the bolt out. then the belt slips through the space, so you dont have to take off the motor mount bracket.
NO, the 1985 Bonneville is rear wheel drive the 1995 is front wheel drive. Even if both engines are the 231 V6 you will have many problems as there were changes such as mounting points, wiring and engine computer cotrol, accessories, ect. Easiest would be to locate a similar year 231 (3800) .
yes you can rebuild a knocking motor. its best to rebuild it from block up and it may get pricy but its worth it
Rear of engine follow exhaust manifold at rear of motor(closest to firewall) you will see oxygen sensor there.Simple to remove(1 only on this motor)
behind the motor about dead center usually a white cylindrical plug almost. it will be right behind the plastic cover
