Re: Switching auto to manual

If you have to ask that, then more than likely the job is not for you.

I'm sure you could actually unbolt the motor and trans and drop the trans out from the bottom, but for us normal everday people we have to pull the motor/trans out with an engine hoist (cherry picker) and go from there.

Here is a basic summary of parts, though it all may not pertain to you because you own a 4g. Its not an easy job at all, and if you have no mechanical experience, I'd say say that the job is not for you. I know this isn't really the best thread, I'll keep looking around for others, but this is the closest I could get at the moment (I'm a little messed up)

As far as a swap goes it was pretty easy. I did mine all by myself but I have also swapped out engines in a few different kinds of cars. What is your experience with swaps is the important question. If you are asking then it will probably be hard for you atm so keep researching and I will send you a good link to study.
