Just about got the engine out of the sable today. Couple of bolts left on the bell housing. One of them is so friggin' unreachable at any angle :S. There is barely any room in this sable to work lol. Should have taken my camera so I could take pics.
Could not find a cherry picker anywhere. So I loaded the electric pallet jack into the dodge and took it up the garage. Basically a mini forklift that you push around. Lifted the front end and got the jacks under :D. Oh, I started up the engine before we started taking it out, and it runs beautifully. The car is really nice it's just too bad they can't get a title for it. My guy is busy tommorow so nothing until monday.
Next post will be on a project page with pics...
oh forgot to ask.. went to napa today.. tried to get all the gaskets I need. They told me 180 something for a full gasket kit.. for everything. I didn't think I'd be spending $200 on just gaskets, but my buddy says while the engine is out might as well replace all of the gaskets.
(after looking at the gasket prices at advanced auto that full gasket kit to do the entire engine seems reasonable. he said it included head gaskets, oil pan, intake, exhaust, main seal, er.... and some ones i forgot maybe?)
oh... does anyone know if there is a difference with normal 3.0 v6 and the one in this sable? buddy said its the sable SHO(or did he say sable sho transmission?) i think.
