Actually, i did not get the pics from the helms manual. I got it from AllDataCollision.com. It actually cost money for the site and I have every manual for every vehicle dated back to 1982. Just because you dont like it doesnt mean shit. I didnt ask you to look at it. Run your mouth on your own treads.

no, its really not. take pics of you doing the work and it might be considered an ok thread. till then, this is a fail.
this thread makes taking an engine out seem too difficult. Especially after I've all ready done a dozen of them.

Why would you remove the battery tray?
that it does.

on the 96-00 chassis, the engine harness goes from the ecu to the driver shock tower. all in one piece. to get to the nuts that hold the harness to the firewall requires you pull that.

1) same pics
2) you wasted money, since there is a site that offers them for free. click
3) listen newblet, calm the fuck down. he can say what he wants, just as much as you can. he can talk shit or what ever else he wants to do. why? cause its the interwebz.

the other people are right, this thread is a fail. there are steps in that "diy" that are not needed. to simply pull the engine doesnt require you to take the intake box off a y7 or for you to remove the shift linkage at the spring pin (aka the bitch pin or roll pin).

edit: added the link to the site with the manuals for the OP

For your info...

1. I dont pay for the program. My school does. Im actually in school to become a real ASE Certified Technician.

2. Your site is for Hondas. My site is for all cars.

3. Theres your way, and then there is the correct way.

4. I did this so a million people didn't have to ask how to. Then we wont have people like you complaining about people not looking. This way its easy to find.

5. Shut up and quit being jealous cause you didnt think about it first.
