Gasoline extremely fire - also is explosive, therefore it is necessary to show care at work with any knots of fuel system.
Works are necessary for carrying out in well aired room, it is better with open windows and doors for draft creation.
It is impossible to use open fire, electric welding and the tool, at work with which sparks can be formed. Check, that in close proximity to a workplace there was a charged fire extinguisher.
For protection of eyes against fuel hit in them use points. At fuel hit on skin wash out this place a large amount of water.
At work with a power supply system observe purity as the dirt which has got to channels of system, can block them that will break normal operation of the engine.


Depending on year of manufacturing and a car complete set in a motor compartment electric wires, pipelines and hoses can settle down differently. Therefore before a detachment of electric sockets and a rassoyedineniye of pipelines or hoses it is recommended to mark them a sticky tape.
The engine acts in film down together with a transmission.

Removal make in the following order:
– lift the car on the lift;
– remove pressure in fuel system;
– switch off ignition and disconnect a "weight" wire from the storage battery;
– remove a cowl. Remove the casing of the ventilating chamber located in the basis of a windscreen;
– capes protect wings to prevent damage of a paint and varnish covering;
– remove the case of the air filter;
– disconnect a cable of an accelerator and take aside together with an arm;
– remove the storage battery. On cars since 2001 remove a support of the storage battery;
– on cars till 2001 remove the canister with absorbent carbon;
– turn out nuts of fastening of forward wheels and power shafts to naves;
– merge engine oil and cooling liquid;
– on cars since 2001 remove a broad tank;
– remove belts of a drive of hinged units;
– mark and disconnect from the engine vacuum hoses and hoses of system of cooling, electric sockets, wires of connection with "weight" and fuel tubes;
– release clips and disconnect from the engine plaits of wires. Also disconnect wires from the block of control of a power transmission (PCM) in salon of the car and extend wires from car salon in a motor compartment;
– remove the generator and a starter;
– remove the pump of the amplifier of a steering;
– remove the radiator fan, a casing of the fan and a radiator. The radiator fan, a casing of the fan and a radiator is not obligatory for removing. However it will exclude possibility of their damage at engine removal. If the radiator remains established in the car, disconnect from it tubes of an oil radiator of an automatic transmission;
– on models with central air turn out bolts of fastening of the compressor of the conditioner. Move the conditioner compressor together with the wires attached to it and tubes aside and a soft wire fix it on a body;

Contour of cooling of central air do not open.

– separate a reception exhaust pipe from a final collector;
– disconnect drafts of management of a transmission. Also disconnect all electric sockets from a transmission;
– if on the car the mechanical transmission is established , remove the working cylinder of coupling from a transmission case;
– remove forward power shafts. On all-wheel drive cars remove the driveshaft;
– on cars since 2001 disconnect drafts from the stabilizer of cross-section stability;
– turn out 2 bolts fixing steering transfer to a forward cross-section beam and bolts hinges to the bottom cross-section levers;
– hook on a chain of the elevating device for the engine and pull it so that the weight of the engine and a transmission was perceived by the elevating device;
– check that anything, except support, does not connect the engine and a transmission to the car;
– turn out the central bolt of fastening of the left support to a transmission;

Fig. 3.98. Arrangement of bolts of fastening of forward and cross-section beams

– turn out bolts (fig. 3.98) and remove forward and cross-section beams;
– slowly lower the engine with a transmission. Disconnect from the engine a chain of the elevating mechanism;
– turn out bolts and separate a transmission from the engine;
– Turn out bolts, remove a flywheel / plate of a drive and fix the engine at the stand.
Installation make in the following order:
– check a condition of support of the power unit and if necessary replace them;
– on cars with a mechanical transmission check a coupling condition. Apply a thin film high-temperature greasing on a shlitsa of primary shaft of a transmission;
– move a transmission to the engine so that primary shaft of a transmission entered in a shlitsa of a conducted disk of coupling. For combination of shliyets of an entrance shaft of a transmission with shlitsa of a conducted disk of coupling, probably, it is necessary to turn a cranked shaft of the engine slightly. At transmission installation primary shaft should not hang on a coupling disk;
– having moved a transmission forward, establish a coupling case on directing plugs of the block of cylinders;
– fix bolts a transmission on the engine;
– establish the engine with a transmission under a motor compartment of the car;
– hook on a chain of the elevating device for the engine and lift the engine with a transmission;
– establish and fix bolts forward and cross-section beams.
Further installation of the engine carry out to sequences, return to removal, taking into account the following.
Fill in engine oil and cooling liquid.
Check level and if necessary add oil in the amplifier of a steering and a transmission.
Start up the engine and check absence of leakages of liquid.
