Method of engine removal
Warning: Vehicles equipped
with air conditioning:
Components of the air
conditioning system may
obstruct work being undertaken on the engine, and it is not always possible to unbolt and move them aside sufficiently, within the limits of their flexible connecting pipes. In such a case, the system should be discharged by a Ford dealer or air conditioning specialist. The refrigerant is harmless under normal conditions, but in the presence of a naked flame (or a lighted cigarette) it forms a highly toxic gas. Liquid refrigerant spilled on the skin will cause frostbite. If refrigerant enters the eyes, rinse them with a diluted solution of boric acid and seek medical advice immediately.
The engine may be lifted out either on its own, or together with the manual gearbox/automatic transmission. Unless work is to be carried out on the manual gearbox/automatic transmission, it is recommended that the engine is removed on its own. Where automatic transmission is fitted, the engine should where possible be removed on its own due to the additional weight of the transmission.
