    Simple. Removing the engine to replace *how to

    Hi.
    I am new to your guys great forum.
    I am replacing a timing belt for a friend on his 1999 Mercury Cougar 2.0

    I exclusively work on v8 engines, rear wheel drive- it is simple design.
    I can do any repair on my Lexus'
    I am very mechanically capable but do need advice

    Clearly there needs to be a thread about how to remove cougar engines.
    I will post pictures and make a tutorial if I can get some advice.

    Moreover to start I am pulling the 2.0 cougar engine from the topside with a picker.

    Does the engine unbolt from the transmission for the removal?
    How is the engine mated with the transmission mechanically?
    Does the engine unbolt from the transmission via the flywheel to a torque converter?

    I cannot determine the best way to remove the engine from the transmission at this point mainly due to lack of information around.
    Lets start with the answers to those questions.
    I know we can make this work collaboratively

    Thanks alot men

    Moved to 2.0L section....

    In response to the question: I haven't pulled a 2.0L out but I'd bet you pull the engine and transmission out the top together as you do with a 2.5L. I don't recall there being enough room to separate the transmission and engine while in the car.
    Visit: 3LDuratec.com for a prepped 3L ready to drop in!

    i looked at the 99 ford cd and they suggest splitting them in the car, iirc

    now one problem with going out the top with them together is there is an ac line that runs over the engine/transmission right where they split.

    We split a 2.5 engine and trans once, and it wasn't a lot of fun. Not much help, I know

    The Zetec can be split from the trans in the car, i did it when i first pulled the engine in my 97 as i couldnt get the shifter rod apart from the trans.

    im assuming your asking about an ATX car in which case the trans case is bolted to the block and the torque converter is bolted to the flex plate (dont know of a single Auto trans that isnt)

    are you pulling the engine just to change the timing belt?
    Those who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.
