Question about 1999 Pontiac Montana
Mechanic says we'll have to tilt this engine in order to get to the alternator to replace it. How is that done?
Set the parking brake and then put the shifter in neutral so you will not damage the transmission. Remove both upper engine mounts, They make a special tool for this but its a little expensive so I just use a ratchet strap. Hook one end to the engine and the other to something solid on the front of the engine compartment. Pull the strap as tight as you can and then ratchet the engine forward as much as you can. It won't give you enough room to remove the alternator, but it will help give you room to take off what you need to to get it out.
