Question about 1997 GMC Sonoma
I need to replace the adapter lines from the block adapter to the remote oil filter adapter. It appears that the lines won't come out (or go back in) without jacking engine and/or more disassembly because they(the metal fitting) hit the drivers side engine mount when trying to take them out from the front. It is a 97 GMC Sonoma 4WD with 4.3 V-6 engine. Before I do the wrong thing, any comments?
The lines can be disconnected from both ends and the bracket removed but to remove the lines from the front (they cannot be removed to the rear) loosen and remove the drivers side engine mount bolt. Use a block of wood between a floor jack and the cast aluminum oil pan and jack the engine assy. up slightly (just enough to "snake" the oil filter adapter lines by the drivers side engine mount. Leave engine jacked up slightly while you "snake" the new lines into position and install the end at the engine oil filter adapter. You can then lower the engine reinstall engine mount bolt and finish the install of the lines by installing the oil filter end of the adapter lines and attach the bracket (that comes with the GM lines) to the block.
