When loosening the engine mount to change the drive belt on a '92 Olds Achieva do you have to jack up the engine?
my brother and I used a hole saw and drilled thru the wheelwell. He had to heat the bolts with a mapp gas torch. But it worked. john
Disconnect the negative battery cable. Jack the car up and place it securely on stands. Remove the splash shield from under the alternator. Unplug the electrical connectors from the rear of the alternator and remove the wire harness retaining bracket. Remove the drive belt by loosening the adjuster. Remove the remaining bolts and separate the alternator from the engine.
Change your oil/filter and switch to 100% synthetic. Drive it 1,000 miles and change the oil/filter again. This time add a can of Seafoam Engine Treatment to the crankcase that you can buy at most auto parts stores. Drive it another 2,000 miles and change the oil again and add another can of Seafoam. Drive it 5,000 miles and change the oil/filter. This should remove lots of the sludge.
There is no primary oil to change. The engine oil is changed by using a special cup type filter wrench. The filter is flush with the bottom of the engine. there should be an allen head drain plug for the engine oil. to prevent old oil from being trapped in the oil coolers by the thermostat, change the oil cold after the engine was ridden for at least 30 min. you can change oil hot…
You would have to change the engine , transmission , powertrain control module etc. the V8 engine came with either 2 wheel drive or all wheel drive so if you currently have the Control Trac 4x4 system you would have to change the transfer case to have the all wheel drive system which doesn't have the low range , so it would be a lot cheaper and simpler just to stay with the 4.0 liter…
The only vehicle layout I know of is used to describe the location of the engine in the vehicle and where it's drive wheels are: Front engine Front Wheel Drive Front engine Rear Wheel Drive Front engine All Wheel Drive mid engine Rear Wheel Drive mid engine AWD Rear engine RWD rear engine AWD never hear pf a Mid engine FWD or rear engine FWD
If you drive normally and use conventional oil then my recommendation is to change the oil/filter every 5,000 miles. If you use synthetic then change it every 8,000 miles. If you drive in very dusty conditions then change it more often. If you drive mostly highway miles then move to 6,000 miles conventional and 10,000 miles synthetic. Or you can follow the manufactures recommendation listed in your owner's manual which is always best.
The purpose of a clutch on a vehicle is to disconnect the drive of the engine from the gearbox (this would be required when the vehicle is stationary or to change gear). While the engine is running the crankshaft is continually turning, It is the crankshaft that turns the gearbox and via the gearbox the road wheels. Obviously there are times when the engine is running but drive is not required, The clutch is the…
Service engine soon light on after you replaced drive belt and Power steering pump drive belt at Pep-boys are they responsible for rechecking engine codes?
I just replaced an engine in a 93 Chieva, from the looks of it you could put one in but you would need to figure out a way to put a rearend in it and cut a tunnel for the drive shaft and transmission. I really don't think it will fit in there sideways. Anything is possible, IF you have a torch and welder. Can it be done easily?? NO.
