Removal


Prevention

The engine can be removed from the car only with the transmission. Removal of the engine is carried out from under the car.


PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Remove a cowl.
2. Depressurize fuel system. Remove the accumulator and a support of the accumulator.
3. Block back wheels, lift a forward part of the car and record on supports.
4. If the engine understands, merge engine oil and remove an oil filter. Merge cooling liquid from the cooling system.
5. Remove a casing of the air filter, remove a forward exhaust pipe, disconnect the giving and returnable fuel hoses from the fuel highway, disconnect an accelerator cable, disconnect a vacuum hose from the vacuum amplifier of brakes and hoses from inlet and final collectors, disconnect electric sockets from electric knots of an inlet collector, weaken collars and disconnect hoses of supply of cooling liquid from a head and the block of cylinders of the engine, on models with air conditioning unscrew a bolt of fastening of the compressor and move the compressor aside, without disconnecting from it hoses, release hoses of the air conditioning system from brackets of fastening and move them from the engine aside, disconnect wires from a starter, the generator, the sensor of pressure and level of oil, unscrew the grounding tire from the transmission.
6. Unscrew a bolt of fastening of the pump of the amplifier of steering and move it from the engine aside, without disconnecting from it hoses.
7. On models with the mechanical transmission execute the following to a deystviya:sleyta oil from the transmission, disconnect the electric socket from the backing lamp switch, disconnect drafts of gear shifting from the transmission, disconnect a coupling cable from a transmission case.
8. On models with the automatic transmission perform the following operations: merge transmission liquid from the transmission, disconnect a cable of the choice of transfers, disconnect electric sockets from the transmission, disconnect heat exchanger hoses from the transmission.
9. Hook capture of the load-lifting mechanism for the power unit and lift until the weight of the power unit is not perceived by the load-lifting mechanism.
10. Remove the lower forward frame.
11. Take internal hinges of power shafts from the transmission. Using a soft wire, suspend the internal ends of power shafts to a body.
12. Check that any elements interfering removal of the engine are removed or disconnected.
13. Unscrew bolts of fastening of draft of the compensator of torque by the right end of a head of the block of cylinders.
14. Install under the power unit the cart to facilitate extraction of the power unit from under the car. Lower the power unit of the car down.
15. Remove captures of the load-lifting mechanism from the power unit and take the power unit from under the car.

Separation of the transmission from the engine

PERFORMANCE ORDER
Mechanical transmission
1. Install the power unit on the corresponding bars.
2. On models with the steel stamped pallet unscrew bolts and remove the lower protective plate of a flywheel.
3. Unscrew bolts and remove a starter.
4. Check that the engine and the transmission are reliably fixed. Then unscrew the remained bolts of fastening of a case of the transmission to the engine.
5. Being careful, separate the transmission from the engine so that the weight of the transmission did not press an entrance shaft.
6. Remove the directing pins.
Automatic transmission
7. Install the power unit on the corresponding bars.
8. Unscrew bolts and remove a starter.
9. Remove a rubber cover from a ledge of the oil pallet for access to bolts of fastening of the hydrotransformer. Unscrew a bolt of fastening of the hydrotransformer and, turning a bent shaft, unscrew the remained bolts of fastening of the hydrotransformer. On engines of 1,6 l there are three bolts of fastening of the transformer, and on l engines 1,8 and 2,0 – 6 bolts.
10. To exclude falling of the hydrotransformer at removal of the transmission, move the hydrotransformer on a shaft to the transmission.
11. Install the power unit on the corresponding bars.
12. On models with the steel stamped pallet unscrew bolts and remove the lower protective plate of a flywheel.
13. Unscrew bolts and remove a starter.
14. Check that the engine and the transmission are reliably fixed. Then unscrew the remained bolts of fastening of a case of the transmission to the engine.
15. Being careful, separate the transmission from the engine so that the weight of the transmission did not press an entrance shaft.
16. Remove the directing pins.

Installation

PERFORMANCE ORDER
Mechanical transmission
1. Check that the directing pins were installed in the engine or the transmission.
2. Install the transmission to the engine on the directing pins. Tighten bolts of fastening of the transmission the required moment.
3. Establish a starter.
4. On models with the steel stamped pallet establish the lower protective plate of a flywheel to a case of the transmission and fix by bolts.
5. Arrange the power unit under a motor compartment of the car, hook on the power unit the load-lifting device and establish it in a motor compartment.
6. At installation of the power unit if necessary incline and turn it so that it was established into place, without having done harm.
7. Combine the engine with a suspension bracket on the right side of a motor compartment and establish draft of the compensator of torque and tighten fastening bolts by hand.
8. Replace oil sealing rings of a power shaft and install power shafts in transmissions.
9. Establish the lower frame of a forward suspension bracket.
10. After installation of the lower frame tighten bolts of fastening of draft of the compensator of torque.
11. Further installation is made in the sequence, the return to removal. Fill in oil in the transmission. Fill in oil in the engine. Fill in cooling liquid in the cooling system.
Automatic transmission
12. Clear a carving of bolts of fastening of the hydrotransformer.
13. Check that the directing pins were installed in the engine or the transmission. Grease with lubricant on the basis of a molybdenum disulfide an adjusting pin of the hydrotransformer and the plug in an end face of a bent shaft.
14. Install the transmission to the engine on the directing pins. Establish and tighten the required moment bolts of fastening of the transmission to the engine.
15. Screw in the first bolt of fastening of the hydrotransformer. Turn a bent shaft and screw in the remained bolts of fastening of the hydrotransformer.
16. Establish a starter and screw bolts.
17. Arrange the power unit under a motor compartment of the car, hook on the power unit the load-lifting device and establish it in a motor compartment.
18. At installation of the power unit if necessary incline and turn it so that it was established into place, without having done harm.
