REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figure 1
- Perform the Cylinder Head Removal procedure as detailed earlier in this section.
- Remove the radiator (see Engine Cooling).
- Remove the alternator (see Alternator).
- On engines equipped with air pumps, unfasten the adjusting link bolts and the drive belt. Remove the hoses from the pump; remove the pump and bracket from the engine.
If the car is equipped with power steering, see Suspension & Steering for the pump removal procedure.
- Remove the fan and water pump as a complete assembly.
- Unfasten the crankshaft pulley securing bolt and remove the pulley with a gear puller.
If installed, do not remove the 10mm bolt from its hole, as it is used for balancing.
- Loosen the bolts securing the front of the oil pan, after draining the engine oil. Lower the front of the oil pan.
- Remove the bolts securing the timing chain cover. Withdraw the cover.
- Installation is performed in the reverse order of removal. Apply sealer to the gaskets for both the timing chain cover and the oil pan.
The 4M-E and 5M-E engines use two gaskets on the timing chain cover.
- Tighten the crankshaft pulley bolt to specification listed under the Torque Specifications chart, and tighten all chain cover bolts until snug.
