motor swap-must pull motor out the bottom???


Recommended Posts



I believe this is the information you seek. May I suggest that before you embark on an endeavor of this magnitude, that you procure the service manual for your vehicle. I agree with you that it may be less difficult [and risky] to remove and replace the motor than to replace the head gaskets in situ and more than likely, less costly to do so.


As a matter of diligence, I would also investigate and correct the origin of your head gasket failure, if it lies outside the engine. Undoubtedly, the engine overheated, but a blown head gasket is never the root cause of overheating.


Many of these engines are equipped with the oil cooler option you mention in a different post. To retrofit a cooler onto your car should be relatively straight forward.


Good luck.
