How to remove motor mounts on a 1992 lincoln


Remove the starter motor with a ratchet and socket and then unplug any electrical connectors from sensors or components attached to the transmission. Remove the sensors and components with a ratchet and socket.
Remove the header-exhaust pipe with a breaker bar and socket, if you believe you will need more room to secure and maneuver the transmission out of the vehicle.
Unfasten the transmission to mount, mount to crossmember and crossmember to frame bolts with a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket. Detach any brackets from the bell housing or rear of the transmission housing with a ratchet and socket. Secure the transmission with a transmission jack and raise the transmission just enough to remove the mount and crossmember supporting the transmission.

    Need to change the alternator on a 2001 sunfire,2.4 engine,how do i do that?


    Things You'll Need:
    • Battery terminal wrench
    • Serpentine belt removal tool
    • 3/8-inch ratchet
    • 3/8-inch metric socket set
    1. Turn off the engine and place the transmission in park (automatic) or first gear (manual). Engage the parking brake and open the hood. Disconnect the negative cable from the battery terminal using the battery terminal wrench.

    2. Remove the serpentine belt by inserting the end of the serpentine belt tool into the square hole on the belt tensioner and rotating the removal tool clockwise. Unplug the alternator's electrical connector. Remove the bolt holding the positive voltage cable to the alternator using a 3/8-inch ratchet and a metric socket. Remove the positive voltage cable from the alternator.

    3. Remove the alternator bracket bolts using a metric socket connected to a 3/8-inch ratchet. Remove the alternator from the car. Place the new alternator in the mounting brackets and reinstall the mounting bolts using a 3/8-inch ratchet connected to a metric socket.

    4. Reinstall the positive voltage cable on the alternator and tighten the retaining nut using a 3/8-inch ratchet and a metric socket. Plug in the alternator's electrical connector. Compress the serpentine belt tensioner using the serpentine belt tool. Reinstall the serpentine belt according to the belt-routing diagram located under the hood.

    5. Reconnect the negative cable to the battery using the battery terminal wrench. Start the engine and verify that the alternator works.

    Replacing a timing belt on a 1994 Ford Ranger


    Instructions Things You'll Need:
    • Drain pan
    • Ratchet
    • Ratchet extension
    • Socket set
    • Small standard screwdriver
    • Phillips screwdriver
    • Timing belt tensioner wrench No. T74P-6254-A
    • Large standard screwdriver
    • Torque wrench
    • Timing belt
    • Timing belt cover gasket
      Preparation
    1. Place a drain pan under the radiator and drain the coolant from the radiator.

    2. Squeeze the spring clamp holding the upper radiator hose to the radiator fitting with a pair of rib joint pliers and slide the clamp towards the engine.

    3. Twist and pull the upper radiator hose off the radiator.

    4. Remove the fan blade using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket.

    5. Rotate the belt tensioner pulley using a breaker bar and remove the drive belt.

    6. Detach the water pump pulley using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket.

    7. Pry off the access plug from the upper part of the timing belt cover using a small standard screwdriver.

    8. Set the transmission to Neutral and apply the Parking brakes.

    9. Rotate the crankshaft pulley with a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket to align the "O" mark on the crankshaft pulley and the "O" mark on the belt cover.

    10. Look through the cover access hole. If you see another timing mark on the camshaft sprocket aligned with the mark on the inner belt cover, cylinder number 1 is at Top Dead Center (TDC). If not, rotate the crankshaft one complete turn again and check for the alignment marks.

    11. Removing the Timing Belt
    12. Unscrew the four mounting bolts and the Phillips screw next to the access plug from the timing belt cover using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket and Phillips screwdriver.

    13. Detach the crankshaft pulley using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket and remove the belt guide (large washer) from behind the crankshaft pulley. You may need a pulley remover to take the crankshaft pulley off. If so, you can rent one from most auto parts stores.

    14. Loosen the adjusting bolt on the tensioner pulley assembly using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket.

    15. Rotate the tension spring rollpin (this is the screw next to the adjuster bolt on the tensioner pulley assembly) away from the timing belt using timing belt tensioner wrench number T74P-6254-A. As you hold the timing belt loose, tighten the assembly adjuster bolt to lock the tensioner using the ratchet, ratchet extension and socket. Now remove the tensioner wrench.

    16. Remove the timing belt.

    17. Installing the New Timing Belt
    18. Install the new timing belt starting at the crankshaft sprocket. Route the belt in a counterclockwise direction over the auxiliary and camshaft sprockets. Properly engage the belt lugs on the sprockets' teeth and keep any slack on the belt to the right side, between the crankshaft and camshaft sprockets. Make sure not to rotate any of the sprockets as you install the timing belt.

    19. Loosen the adjuster bolt on the tensioner pulley assembly so the tensioner rolls against the belt. If necessary, push the tensioner pulley against the belt with a large standard screwdriver to remove any remaining slack on the belt.

    20. Make sure the transmission is in the Neutral position and the Parking brakes are engaged.

    21. Rotate the crankshaft two complete revolutions so that cylinder No.1 is back in TDC. This will help to tighten the timing belt on the sprockets.

    22. Tighten the adjuster bolt on the tensioner pulley assembly between 14- and 21-foot lbs. (19.0 to 29.0 Nm) using a torque wrench.

    23. Tighten the tension-spring bolt between 28- and 40-foot lbs. (38.0-54.0 Nm) using the torque wrench.

    24. Install the belt guide (large washer) and the crankshaft pulley. Tighten the pulley bolt with the ratchet, ratchet extension and socket.

    25. Install the timing belt cover with a new gasket using the ratchet, ratchet extension and socket and Phillips screwdriver.

    26. Reinstall the water pump pulley, drive belt, fan blade and upper radiator hose.

    27. Refill the cooling system with coolant.

    My 2001 Passat has sat in a yard for a year. In June the battery statrted to die. The person watching my car let my battery die all ogther and it will not hold a charge. How do I replace the battery and...


    Tools; Mainly a 10mm socket, ratchet and extension. Remove the top battery cover by pulling straight up. Use the 10mm socket to loosen the nuts on the + and - battery terminal connectors. Wiggle the connectors back and forth and pull them off the battery. Look around the bottom of the battery box, there may be a plastic wedge with a bolt thru it clamping the battery down. If so, remove it with the ratchet and extension. Drop your new battery in and reverse the procedure. Now the worse problem, your car will probably need to have a throttle adaptation performed if it is a gas burner or it will run rough until it "relearns" the proper settings.
