I Take the 2 nuts off the bottom of the front motor mount and back motor mount, on the passenger side then I jack up the motor on the passenger side end of the oil pan with a board between the jack and the oil pan. You can jack it up a couple of inches, it gives you plenty of room. I leave it jacked up until I'm done, even putting the belt on is alot easier. Then lower the motor, and put the nuts back on the mounts. The labor guide calls for about 2 and a half hours, I can do one in an hour, this way..
