Engine removal

How do I remove my engine from my car? I looked for videos and can't find any. Bc I plan to rebuild my engine later on. Head cam and intake swap. Intakes are already coming in. And I wanna build it right and be able to have full access and not have to bend over a fender

Unbolt the trans and engine mounts. Take the electrical connections off and coolant hoses.

Don't forget to rent or buy a cherry picker or something to hoist your engine up and keep it up

Hate squirrels I have nothing but acorns and shells under the hood like as if a squirrel was storing its own food there. I'm afraid if that falls through if I remove the intake manifolds to swap them with my new ones. Nothing's going right

Clean out your engine bay before taking anything apart then. Blow compressed air through those tight spaces and you'll be good

Damn I do have dust buster. My car isn't drivable other than that id drive it to my shop. Which is like 30 minutes away. I broke a bolt in the upper manifold that goes to the iac. I had to drive it back home by using the vacuum to suck the iac on the manifold that's what held it the whole way home. It broke bc I sand blasted the upper intake and didn't tap the bolt holes. Sucks.

I don't know how long it'll be till I move but I plan on somehow getting my car back on the road. When I reinstalled my lower and upper intake I started leaking coolant.
