Please don't take offense at this Lisa, but if you have to ask that don't even try. You need a full complete tool set, and writing out how to remove the engine is virtually impossible. Take it to a shop.


If you plan on doing a job that big, you should spend the money on the actual factory repair manual. Try Amazon or Ebay. There are 3 auctions on Ebay now. Very expensive. Over $350. But if you plan on keeping the vehicle they are well worth it. I have them for my toyotas. They have a very good resale value. There are downloads on the internet, but I don't know if they are worth it.


I should have asked: Does the engine have to be removed from the bottom of the car?

This is what I was told and I just want to know if that's true.


Every engine I've ever seen removed is from the top. Ever see an engine hoist? They would have to remove too many parts from below to get it out. Nothing in the way from under the hood. Here's a video..................

That is exactly what I know and have seen. Just needed reassurance! Thank you, Reelin68 !
