Looking for experience "REMOVE ENGINE"

Hey guys,

I'm sure few other user are interested too in the best way to remove the 4B11T. Of course everybody can take a look at the workshop manual, but maybe there are few tricks and tips we need to know.

Is it better to pull out the enigine top, or remove the frame under the car etc. etc. etc...

What part of gearbox, transfercaser etc. needs to be removed.

All infos are welcome

Thanks

Peter

While I'm not anywhere ready to do this I'm interested in this as well.

I've pulled the tranny three times and have extensive experience doing that, but believe there is a more efficient method/process for complete DT removal.

I think the best method is to remove the entire subfram assembly mounting the engine/transmission while the car is on a lift.

Is that even possible without a lift? Can the car be raised enough on stands to do that? What hurdles are present....steering shaft, hoses, etc?

If youre going to pull your motor. Get yourself a lift. As stated below, easiest way would be to drop the while front subframe, disconnect everything that is connected to the motor, disconnect the A/C compressor and then just undo the mounts and drop it. Its pretty straight forward.

I did it in my garage with a 2 ton racing jack and 3 ton stands.

We removed the engine through the bottom with the T-case, both manifolds and turbo and SST still attached, had to drop the subframe and driveshaft(left it bolted to rear, let it come out of the t-case -- no pulling necessary!) though. Was very easy since we left the steering pump connected to the subframe too. We put the AC compressor off to the side.. once you get it free and loosen the line brackets, it's easily tucked under the passenger wheel well and out of the way. The AC condenser is just resting on the front chassis beam (not the crash beam! The beam which is welded to the chassis), didn't need to do anything with it except push it off to the side.

The best way we found was to drop the engine with a hoist onto a shop creeper, lift the drivers side (since it was on the right of a two car garage and empty to the left) with a few blocks of wood on the jack, and pull the engine from under the car on the creeper. EXTREMELY fast!

EFR (not my X... the shop X)

No question I'll find a solution to take out the engine, but looking for the best way maybe with our without remove the gearbox before.

Drain coolant, undo all the wiring, pull off the fuel rail/manifolds and you should be able to take the whole thing out from the top with a standard engine hoist. Oh and unbolt the t-case (it can just lay on the subfame) and and pop out the axles too. I pulled my head off first so I had the accessory belt and pulleys off and that may or may not have helped but it wasn't too bad. Got it done in one saturday with the help of a few friends.

Putting it back together is always harder/longer than removing.

Just out of curiosity, why did yo decide to remove the manifolds to bring it out the top? The big problem we saw with trying to go straight up was that (in your case it's not an issue) the t-case wouldn't have cleared, as well as the SST being just so slightly tucked under the drivers side fender.

Peter, what kind of pictures are you looking for? Unfortunately since we were dangling an engine, I didn't grab any pictures during, but I have some images of the empty engine bay, as well as the engine as it stands now (minus the head). The subframe is still sitting in one piece, so I can grab a picture of that too if you'd like to see.

Grab a pic of the subframe the way it sits on the floor, that would give us some idea.
