Removing engine assembly in a 2000 STS


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am planning to do engine work on a 2000 STS but my garage is kind of limited

in space so would like to disconnect the engine from the automatic and simply lift it up as I

have a good engine hoist. I have done it with my 93-94 Northstar engines but the space seems to

be smaller in the 2000 but if I take the harmonic balancer away it seems possible.

I would like to know if anybody has managed to take the engine out by lifting before I start

with something just to later figure out that it is impossible...

I have asked my swedish friends too but no response yet.

KHE (Kevin) did it that way, I don't know if it was his 96 or 97, but I do recall him saying that the next time, he won't do it that way. I am sure he will stop by.

not sure if a 98+ is the same as a 97? i pulled my 96 motor out the top. left the balancer on. took out radiator first. and i took off the alt/a/c compressor also. separating the motor from the trans was awful. taking off the rear y-pipe bolts was also hell. i would seriously consider dropping the subframe/motor the next time. lift the body with an engine hoist. folks have said it is not really that bad. you need an engine picker to yank the motor so might as well try to lift the body.
