At home yes, if you have access to a lift you can get at it from the side or under the car. I have done at least 200 of these.

I am trying to remove the rack and pinion from my 2004 mazda 3, ive tried some stuff but cant find a way to get it out, any help would be great!

Usually dropping the subframe or pulling off a spindle is the only way to get it out...that's why it cost so much at the garage to have it done...

How do u change rack and pinion 2004 trailblazer

Put the vehicle on jack stands first. Then you pull the tie rod ends loose from the spindles on each side. There is 2 bolts that hold the rack and pinion to the subframe that you remove and it'll drop far enough that you can undo the powersteering lines and pull it out.

Do you have to pull the engine to replace 1999 Sable 3.0 DOHC timing chain?

You can pretty much look at the front of the motor & ask yourself,
can all the necessary parts come off with no clearance to work

I would say dropping the motor out the bottom complete with transaxle
& subframe, as a complete unit would be necessary

The question is --why the timing chain,never changed oil very often since the car was new & ruined the engine?

The cam actuators & cams are clogged with sludge,that should never
been allowed to happen

Need more than just the chains replaced

2004 gmc envoy. has a 6cyl and a serp belt. the center pully off set to the left (i think its a water pump) has a bad wobble and making a horrible noise. Not over heating and no leaks. should i just change...

If the fan is attached to it than it is the water pump making the noise and it will need to be replaced. If the fan clutch is not attached to it than it is either the idler pulley or the tensioner pulley. The tensioner is on the passenger side (left) of the front of the motor.

Car shudders during acceleration in 1st gear.

You don't need to change your clutch!
All you need to do is replace a simple shaft which can be done by any mechanic!
Cost you much less!

Yes, the harmonic balancer is broken. It is what the crank pulley is bolted to.
