I have a 1995.5 Isuzu Rodeo 4wd automatic 3.2 v6.
I need to pull the engine to replace the rear main seal and oil pan gasket. I need to kno how to pull the engine. I took it to the shop and they said it would cost $1000 just to pull the engine. To much for me. So I am going to do it myself. I have a cherry picker and engine stand. Thanks for the help.

Do you
have the same problem?

I have read in some places that I might have to lower my differential in order to remove the engine. Do you know if that is true?
