    top 2 bellhousing bolts

    Hello. Its been awhile since I posted. I just bought a 2000 s10. Its a four cylinder with auto trans. Well to make a long story short, it got hot and melted the head. I'm in the process of replacing the engine but I'm having issues getting to the top belllhousing bolts. I tried the search feature but found nothing. Any suggestions? Thanks. Jason.

    remove the trans crossmember and drop the trans down on a jack, slowly. The whole motor will tilt back and with the a long enough extension and swivel socket you should be able to get it.
    this is a test of the sig

    That's how I've done it and just recently on a 2.2 4l60 too.

    Did you have to pull the driveshaft too. If you did, it wouldn't be that more difficult to just pul the engine and trans together, would it?

    i always find it easier to pull engine and trans together, if your main goal is to get a engine out.

    It isn't necessary to pull the drive shaft, but it's going to be hard to work around and the transmission is pretty much out of the truck at that point.

    With the tools I have, now, in the shop, dropping the trans out the bottom with the trans jack and lift isn't hard at all. For pulling out engines I drop the trans and pull the hood. With those out of the way the engine comes straight up and out of the engine bay like butter. Now if only I could install an overhead crane...
