SOURCE: timing belt

A dealer told my son in law to change the timing belt at least once before it reached 80000 miles. I would probably change it at 60, maybe 70.

I agree....I have done the same thing...Some vehicles have portholes with rubber plugs for that type bolt removal...but very few....It should be done to all ft wheel drives...
However first be sure that you have all mounts loose...there my be another lower mount...I have seen up to 4 different type mount brackets on some engines...Also it seems that you have to jack all of them up way too much and very unsafe looking but that is just the way it is..Some times it is a good idea to loosen the trans mounts to give you another couple inches but cutting the hole is a great idea because you will need it for future use.....Start out with a drill pilot hole and use a hole saw bit for your holes...very simple...Hope this

2002 pt cruizer won't shift out of first gear. could it be from the transmission relay?

Question is contradictory. First you say won't shift out of first gear, then you say won't shift pst second. If the latter is correct, yes could be the 3-4 shift solenoid has failed.

How to install freeze plug 2002 jeep liberty

If you are wanting to replace the factory freeze plug with a similar type, I'm afraid that the easiest / only way is to pull the engine.

What some people do is replace the factory style freeze plug with an expandable rubber plug. The plug has a bolt through it and as you tighten the bolt/nut the rubber expands sealing the hole. If you can get the plug out, you can replace it with this style without having to remove the engine. You only need enough clearance to get a wrench on it. Be sure to check the plug for the first few months as sometimes they get loose as the rubber "settles" in.

If you don't want to replace with a expanding rubber plug what you might can try is supporting the engine using a jack and removing the engine mount and the engine mount bracket. That "might" give you enough room to work but I doubt it. There probably isn't enough clearance to get a hammer or a metal rod to the plug.

When removing the freeze plug be careful not to accidentally knock it into the engine block. THAT is a real PITA.

Remove alternator from hyandai santa fe

once the car is jacked up, the wheel is removed, and the wiring is disconnected loosen the pivot bolt(14mm) on the bottom(it can't be removed with the alternator in place) and remove the top bolt(12mm). some prying will be needed to break it loose and swivel. now, if the car is supported with stands sufficiently and jacked up high enough you should be able to squat somewhat into the wheel well and grab the alternator with both hands. have a pry bar handy as well if you do not already have one and pry on the pivot ear a bit and get the alternator to swivel. once it breaks loose you should be able to swivel it, pry it, swivel it, pry it and so on. lifting it up and to the left and it should work it's way out. it will take a bit of effort at first and the car will rock some, hence the need for added support. I had a bottle jack and 2 jack stands for a more secure base.

DISCLAIMER: it's never completely safe to do anything with the car on a jack or stands so caution must be taken. if you aren't comfortable with this method I suggest a mechanic.

back to the repair.. once you get the alternator up out of the slot bracket then you should be able to turn the alternator for clearance and remove it with a fair amount of ease. I turned mine counter-clockwise for clearance.
all instructions are taken as given the battery negative cable has been disconnected, the belt has been removed from the pulley and you are at the point to work directly with the alternator.
