need to put hydraulic jack under engine, usually under oil pan to jack up engine(use a small peice of 2x6/2x8 under pan in order to keep from denting oil pan. you will need swivel head sockets and several extensions in order to reach the bolts. Important to dismount your computer from fire wall and remove air cleaner assembly to give room for engine to elevate when jacking it up After removing nuts, start jacking up engine taking care to watch all wiring and hoses to keep from damaging, disconnect as you go.

The easiest way is to disconnect the motor from the mounts, and the transmission from it's mounts.use an engine hoist to lift the motor up about 4 inches and drop the oil pan. You will have to pull out the crank which means the bottom of the rods as well try not to move the pistons, you will have to replace not only the main seals, I would do both, but the oil pan gasket and the rod bearings.

You support the engine at the oil pan using a clock of wood on the jack. Then remove the engine mount trough bolts. Jack the engine up until it clears the mounts. Then remove the old ones and install the new ones. Lower the engine until the holes match up, install the through bolts, torque them to specs and lower the jack the rest of the way.

I have repaired both electric windows in my 1988 caravan. There is a white plastic track that the motor pulls and pushed and this is what opens and closes the window. It is located inside the door behind the door panels. Usually the track breaks, with age and you need to replace them.
