Pulley not coming off

Depending on the Vehicle, You may have to put a Jack under the Oil Pan with something to distribute the weight and to protect the Oil Pan and then what you need to do is this...

Jack up the motor, remove the Upper Motor Mount and now you can lower the engine far enough to get the Pulley out of Most cars... I know this works on Honda, Hyundai and Toyota's without any issue. Just be smart to not just drop the front of the Motor and tax the Transaxle/CV Joints...

Good Luck

Cant get the oil pan off a 302

You have to jack the engine up after removing the motor mount bolts on each side. Then once you have the engine jacked up a few inches, slide a piece of wood (2x4) in between the upper and lower parts of the motor mounts on each side. This will keep the engine elevated enough for you to drop the oil pan and replace the gasket. Then, just put all the bolts back in in the proper torque sequence, torque them all to spec,remove the wooden blocks from the motor mounts, slowly lower the engine back down and put the motor mount bolts back in.

Is there any way to replace the serpentine belt on a 97 oldsmobile achieva without removing the engine mount

If its the 3.1 liter with the upper engine mount on the passenger side of the motor than no. You will need to remove the mount.

The good news is is its not that hard to do. Place a jack under the oil pan with a block of would between the jack and the oil pan and the trans pan as far to the passenger side as you can and still be able to touch both pans with the block of wood.

Jack up the motor just enough so that it just start to push up on the motor mount. Remove the bolts that hold it to the bracket on the engine. Remove the retainer for the cruise, if equipped, unplug the cruise and set aside. Remove the nut from the mount on top and the two bolts from inner fender.

Jack up the motor just enough to remove the mount.

You'll then be able to replace the belt.

How do i lift the engine soas to change motor mounts

Usually the best way is to use a jack with a piece of wood under the oil pan. You should be able to jack up the motor far enough to remove the mounts. Or a engine hoist (cherry picker) can be used.

How do you remove the oil pan on 2001 grand prix

Remove the motor mount bolts on both sides. Using a jack & wood block, jack the engine high enough to allow the pan clearance enough for removal. Use wood blocks(4 by 4) at motor mounts & lower engine mounts onto the blocks. Lower & remove jack & block at jack. Remove pan bolts & carefully using a large pry bar or common screwdriver pry the pan away from engine . Good luck!

Trying to drop the oil pan out of my 1994 Ford F-150 (4.9L) to replace the gasket. Ive taken out the motor mounts and jacked the engine almost high enough to get the oil pan out and I am wondering if i...

done this on several i-6 f-150s. slide back or remove transmission, remove motor mount bolts from frame(not motor), jack motor up as far as possible without damaging egr valve or wiper motor when they hit, shim under motor mounts so that when you drop the jack the motor does not come back down any(the motor is well balanced on the mounts, it will not fall out of the truck like a v8 will), then remove the oil pan. you May have to remove the pickup tube(usually not), and you May have to rotate the crankshaft so that the lobes clear the oil pan. this is a common problem with these trucks due to the size of the oil pan(Huge), and the minimum pan to crossmember clearance
