How do I remove an engine from a 2002 Toyota Tacoma

Asked by Nov 29, 2014 at 09:12 AM about the 2002 Toyota Tacoma 2 Dr Prerunner Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, my engine recently blew up in my tacoma, and I'm thinking of removing the engine
myself before having a new one put in by a mechanic, to cut down on the repair cost.
Does anyone know any good resources I could look at to learn how to do this? Books?
Videos? Etc. Please let me know,

Thanks,
Joel

Couldn't find a Video or any step-by-step for engine pull or even swap. On the Tacoma forums there are lots of threads about changing from one engine to another..but all it is what to put in what. Best bet buy a Chiltons or MOTOR Book. Haynes is a good book, but does not cover as much. Best wishes on this big job. They do say pulling engine and transmission together is easier than pulling just engine (click pic) If you do this, put old engine in bed of truck. The mechanic may need parts from it.
