Question about 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier
Ineed anew 2.2 enbine for my 96 cav, because my daughter ventalated the block, can the engine be removed from the top, or does it come out the bottom?
It can be done either way.It is likely less work to remove it from the top,and leave the transmission in the car.Remove the a/c compressor while leaving the lines hooked up so you don't lose the charge on the system.Disconnect the trans bellhousing bolts and torque convertor bolts,support the trans from below with a floor jack while hoisting the engine up out of the bay.Unless the hood opens wide enough,the hood will have to be removed to accomodate the height of the lifting crane.Mark and index all wires and connectors as to what they go to with masking tape and a pen or marker.Before removing the hood,scribe around the hood hinges to give a good outline so that the hood is bolted back exactly as it was in relation to the hinges,otherwise the panels won't line up properly,hood to fender gap,hood to door gap,etc.
