– Piece of wood on which to place the car

The following instructions will show you how to remove an engine from a car without using a hoist.

1) Place the car on a sturdy piece of wood so that the weight of the engine doesn’t cause it to collapse. If possible, have someone hold the wood in place while you begin work.

2) Torque the lug wrench to 50 ft/lbs. and use it to loosen the engine mount bolts. Use a ratchet and torque wrench to tighten the bolts to 18 ft/lbs.

3) Jack up the car using the hoist, and then lower it so that the engine is resting on its front bumper. Disconnect the negative battery cable first if necessary.

4) Remove the four engine mount bolts, using a ratchet and torque wrench. Be sure not to lose any of these bolts! Replace them with new ones as needed.
