Old 2003 2.7 engine swap 01-05-2011 , 02:18 PM

My daughter has a 2003 Tiburon GT with the 2.7 V6. Recently her timing belt went and broke 6 exhaust valves and messed up one of the heads.

I have a different motor to put replace her damaged one with. The question I have is this, is it possible to pull the motor out the top of the engine bay and get the new one back in through the top? Or do I absolutely have to drop the whole K-member and do the swap. She has a manual transmission with the stock clutch.

Thanks!

Jeff

yes you can pull it out thru the top...i have done this many times and prefer to do it this way. you can pull the engine with the trans then pull them apart once you have them out. to me this way is much easier

Is there any way to do it without pulling the trans too?

I really don't want to have to pull the axles and disconnect everything from the trans to swap motors but I guess if I have no choice I will have to.

im not so sure that you can pull the engine with out the trans. ive never tried it, but ive also never heard of anyone else doing it that way or even attempting...not saying it cant be done tho. there isnt too much extra with pulling the trans out as well. just the axles like you said and two extra connectors....o and i guess the battery and intake box. i always forget about those cause i havent had those in the way for years

Okay, I got the engine and tranny out. I have removed all of the bolts holding the transmission to the engine but it doesn't want to separate. Do I need to take the lever from the slave cylinder off to get it apart?? If not what is the trick?

HELP!!!!

Thanks!

Take the arm attached to the slave cylinder off of the shift fork post attached to the trans annd if should slide right off.

Thanks so much for the help with this project!!! I have the Tranny and new engine back together and in the car now!
One more question though, I lost some of the Tranny fluid while I was removing it from the car. What kind of fluid is used in the Manual Tranny? Looks like oil to me. Also, how do you know how much fluid to put in it? I found a really small plug on the top of the tranny that I guess you use to put the fluid in, is this correct? Thanks!!!

75-90 gear oil, some people use GM synchromesh as well, but if you're going to use that drain out the old stuff and refill it. If you have a 5 speed there is a plug on the metal plate in the front of the trans just under the battery tray, that the fill plug.

when putting in the fluid from the filler plug fill it up until it begins to pour out then let it keep pouring out until it starts to drip slowly this is very important, if you don't let it drain until it drips it will cause premature input shaft seal failure!!!
