Not unless you got a better idea. Four bottle jacks, a lift where you could drop the carriage on a table, take the hood off and wrap a chain fall over a beam, floor jacks...but the bolt method isnt dangerous, it's easy, allows control, doesnt risk you pulling the car off the jack stands.
You may need to free up the electrical conduit that runs along the crossover.
This is potentially a highly complicated job. A few years ago I dropped the entire engine/tranny carriage on a dolly with wheels that I built (see dolly in photo below) and pulled it out from under the car, replaced the engine, and rolled it back under and lifted it back into position with the threaded rod method described above, it works.
Good morning Mike. I've been searching in the forum about rich cold start. I have a 1993 Cadillac deville 4.9 v8. I've done maintenance. full tune up. Plugs, wires, cap and rotor. New EGR, and new PCV valve. Throttle body cleaned and air intakes (those were bad) checked the timing yesterday (at 24 degrees) don't know why but I'll bring it down. Cold start rough... too much fuel. Runs perfect after warm. Any suggestions about the rich cold start? Any info it would be much appreciated. thank you.
I live in Terre Haute, IN. Do you know much about 4.5 Liter engine? I have a 1988 Fleetwood (FWD)... I am needing to find someone to do some work on it.
