Motor mount bolts need to be totally removed. If you can get at the front pulley from underneath put a wood block on it and jack from there. Watch your fan at the shroud to make sure it don't bind up might have to remove the shroud or fan

how to replace the oil pan gasket in a f150 1988 truck


Hi there:

  1. Drain the cooling system.


CAUTIONWhen draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
  1. Remove the bolts attaching the fan shroud to the radiator and position the shroud over the fan.
  2. Remove the upper intake manifold and throttle body (see Fuel System ).
  3. Remove the nuts and lockwashers attaching the engine support insulators to the chassis bracket.
  4. If equipped with an automatic transmission, disconnect the oil cooler line at the left side of the radiator.
  5. Remove the exhaust system.
  6. Raise the engine and place wood blocks under the engine supports.
  7. Drain the crankcase.


CAUTIONThe EPA warns that prolonged contact with used engine oil may cause a number of skin disorders, including cancer! You should make every effort to minimize your exposure to used engine oil. Protective gloves should be worn when changing the oil. Wash your hands and any other exposed skin areas as soon as possible after exposure to used engine oil. Soap and water, or waterless hand cleaner should be used.
  1. Support the transmission with a floor jack and remove the transmission crossmember.
  2. Remove the oil pan attaching bolts and lower the oil pan onto the crossmember.
  3. Remove the two bolts attaching the oil pump pickup tube to the oil pump. Remove the nut attaching the oil pump pickup tube to the No. 3 main bearing cap stud. Lower the pickup tube and screen into the oil pan.

To install:

  6. Install the transmission crossmember.
  7. Raise the engine and remove the blocks under the engine supports. Bolt the engine to the supports.
  8. Install the exhaust system.

how do i replace a radiator in 1986 mercedes 420 sel


These are very easy to do. 1. Spin the shroud of the fan about 1 1/2 " and the shroud will unclip and move forward over the fan. 2. remove the metal slide clips from the sides of the remainder of the shroud and lift up. 3.unscrew the 2 trans cooler lines from underneath and allow to drain in a pan 4. Remove the radiator hoses and allow to drain. 5, Remove the 2 metal clips on top and lift the radiator out. Be sure when you reinstall the shroud that you spin the fan and adjust the shroud accordingly so it does not hit. Let me know if you need anything else.

oil pan removal?


Im not sure if you are talking about the motor pan or the tranny pan. But I have lifted the motor and tranny together on a vehicle to change the motor pan and mounts before. I remember having to loosen the fan shroud. Undo linkage on the tranny and make sure the shifter boots were loose. The key for me was going real slow with the crane and having extra eyes around. It was a pain but it worked out.
