REMOVAL: Drain the cooling system.
Drain the engine oil.
Relieve the fuel system pressure.
Recover the A/C refrigerant.
Remove or disconnect the following: Battery and tray
Air cleaner and hoses
Fuel line from the rail
Wiper module
Block off the heater hoses to the rear system by using pinch off pliers, if equipped. NOTE
When the transaxle lines are removed from the fittings at the transaxle damage to the inner wall of the hose will occur. To prevent leakage, cut the cooler hoses off flush at the transaxle fitting and use a service cooler hose splice kit upon installation.
Heater hoses
Radiator upper support crossmember
Engine cooling fan
Throttle body linkage
Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor connector
Idle Air Control (IAC) valve connector
Throttle Position (TPS) sensor connector
Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) transducer connector
Vacuum lines from the throttle body, brake booster and speed control
Wiring harness clip from the right side mount
Power steering reservoir and set aside without disconnecting the lines
Ground strap from the rear of the cylinder head
Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor connector
Ignition coil connectors
Fuel injector connectors and clip from the bracket
Camshaft (CMP) and Crankshaft (CKP) position sensor connectors
A/C compressor electrical connectors and hoses. Cap the lines to avoid system contamination.
Radiator upper hose
Electrical connector at the transaxle dipstick tube
Transaxle dipstick tube and seal the opening to avoid system contamination

Power steering pump and set aside
Raise the vehicle enough to position dolly 6135, cradle tool 6710 with posts 6848 and adapter tool 6909 under vehicle.
Loosen the cradle posts to allow movement for proper positioning. Lower the vehicle and position the cradle/post mounts until the engine is resting on the posts and then tighten the mounts to the cradle frame to prevent mounts from moving when removing/installing the powertrain assembly.
Attach safety straps around the engine-to-cradle assembly. Lower the vehicle so the weight of the powertrain assembly, not the vehicle are on the cradle.
Remove or disconnect the following: Engine right side mount-to-engine bolts
Left mount through bolt
Raise the vehicle away from the powertrain.

INSTALLATION: Lower the vehicle over the powertrain.
Align the engine and transmission mounts to their attaching points. Install and tighten the right mount and left transmission mounts as shown in the two accompanying illustrations.
Remove the safety straps and the dolly and adapters.
Install or connect the following: Power steering pump and pressure line
Alternator
Wiring harness clip to the dipstick tube
Oil pressure switch connector
