Engine - removal leaving automatic transmission in vehicle
Note: Refer to the warning at the beginning of Section 5 before proceeding. A suitable hoist and lifting tackle will be required for this operation.
1 Proceed as described in paragraphs 1 to 21 of Section 5.
2 Unscrew and remove the top engine-totransmission bolts which are accessible from the engine compartment. Note the location of the earth strap, vacuum pipe bracket, and transmission dipstick tube bracket, as applicable.
3 Proceed as described in paragraphs 23 to 29 of Section 5.
4 Where applicable, remove the bolt securing the transmission fluid dipstick tube to the lefthand side of the cylinder block.
5 Working through the starter motor aperture, unscrew the four torque converter-todriveplate nuts. It will be necessary to turn the crankshaft, using a suitable spanner on the crankshaft pulley bolt, in order to gain access to each bolt in turn through the aperture.
6 Support the transmission with a trolley jack, using a block of wood between the jack and the transmission to spread the load.
7 Unscrew and remove the remaining engineto- transmission bolts, and remove the bolt from the engine adapter plate. Recover any shims fitted between the sump and the transmission when removing the lower engineto- transmission bolts. Where applicable, pull the blanking plug from the adapter plate.
8 Proceed as described in paragraphs 34 to 38 of Section 5.
9 Gently raise the engine, then pull the engine forwards to disconnect it from the transmission. Ensure that the torque converter is held firmly in place in the transmission housing, otherwise it could fall out, resulting in fluid spillage and possible damage. It may be necessary to rock the engine a little to release it from the transmission.
10 Once clear of the transmission, lift the engine from the vehicle, taking care not to damage the components in the engine compartment.
