What engine size is it. I looked at the 1.8L and you will need special tools and an engine crane.

If it's the 1.8 t and if it's an oil sludge possibility save yourself some time and remove the #1 cam bearing. If there is peppery looking stuff in there get an engine. Rod and main bearings are toast. To continue investigating I can warn you it isn't a fun back yard job.
