Does the Hyundai accent 2000 have a front cradle?


if it is a unibody then it will have an engine cradle or sub-frame that supports the engine and transmission. If you plan on replacing the subframe you will need to support the engine and transmission from the top side with an engine support fixture.

Wher are the motor mounts


the engine has two mounts, the trans has one.

engine mounts are located on the left and right of the engine slightly forward of center. on the bottom, they have studs that go through holes in the cradle - two for each mount. on the top, each has two more studs that engage brackets on the engine. each is covered by a thin metal heat shield (which makes them hard to see by a casual observer).

the trans mount is at the back of the transmission and secures it to the crossmember.

How do you remove the engine from a 2000 grand prix from the bottom


there is generally a sub-frame cradle which the engine/transmission sits in. This cradle is lifted up into the body on the assembly line. So the only way to pull the engine from the bottom is to remove the entire cradle.

How do I replace pipes in back of engine for heater


Hello: One way is to remove the cover on the front bottom of the engine/cradle assembly. Then put a jack under the center of the cradle at the front of the engine. Remove the two front cradle bolts (18mm) and lower the cradle/engine assembly down, this will give more room to access the clamps that hold the pipes on. It is not an easy task.

Looking to pull the engine out of 95 camaro 3.4 with manual tranny does it come out the bottom or the top?


You can pull that engine out of the top. It is easier to drop the engine cradle, remove the drive shaft firs, and wiring harness. There should be four bolts located on the cradle at four locations. Lower the cradle with 2 jacks one on each side, lift the car and slide cradle from under the car. i have done this with an Intrige and was easier than trying to pull from the top.

The engine and cradle do indeed come out the bottom easier. when the cradle is supported and dropped free from the body the body front will be light enough to be picked up by the engine hoist far enough to pull the cradle assembly out from underneath
