Bit awkward on your own if you have paddock stand or centre stand does make it easier when i changed engine on my cbr 600 i left the rear bolt till las although did loosen it with a low level jack underneath with kneeldown mat protecting engine peice of soft wood would do as long as large enough to go underneath remove bolt from rear engine should still be tight in position prize slightly forward till moving gradually lowering on jac keeping it balanced when free from frame will still need manhandling away from bike

Oil Pan Gasket Replacement/ Oil Pan removal

yes the starter does have to be removed but also the engine mounts must be also as the engine must be raised about 10 " to get the pan out. if you do try this make sure you have very very sturdy jack stands for the engine to just a jack as the jack will lift it but wont maintain it long enough to safely remove the pan and reinstall it......good luck and be very carefull

Engine blown need to replace

Go to auto parts store and buy a repair manual. Basically you will have to drain the antifreeze and remove the radiator. Remove everything that gets in the way of lifting the motor from the truck which probably includes the alternator, starter, etc. take the transmission out. Get a motor pulling lift and attach a chain to the motor. Remove motor mounts. Make sure that everything is removed from the motor that has wires running to the body. Lift motor from truck.

How do you get the engine out ? Will it come out the engine bay ? Or do I have to drop the subframe ?

I had a Dodge Grand Caravan for several years. I loved almost everything about it. Except the lack of engine compartment space to work in. You can bring the engine out the nose but everything must come out and off to do so. If you can get it on a lift and drop the engine, that will save you some time and effort, unless you run into trouble removing the exhaust systems and the cross supports under the engine. Snapping bolts and having to cut the exhaust out and so having to replace the exhaust is a common ordeal. I did manage to change the plugs on the far side of the engine with out pulling the engine out....but it was a ridiculous amount of finagling and my arms were bleeding quite a bit once it was done. What are you needing to remove the engine for?

I need to replace the starter on a 1992 Chevrolet Camaro RS with a V8 engine. Can you give me directions?

Remove neg battery cable. Then lift car up. Mark with tape or marker the wires connecting to starter/ solenoid. Then remove the two cables.
Then remove two bolts from starter and drop down or pull up by exhaust manifold if you cannot drop down through bottom.

Pulling an oil pan on 1998 grand am

The worst part will be either lifting the engine to the point that it clears obstructions, or to remove the obstructions, or both. Lifting the engine requires that you disconnect the motor mounts and who knows what else. Once everything is out of the way you can drop the pan. I hope this helps.
