Default 2002 Engine swap

Hey guys,
I am jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire tomorrow morning and doing an engine swap on my 2002 Santa Fe. I am hoping to solicit any tips, tricks or short cuts you all might know to make this easier. I am also looking for any suggestions on parts that are known to wear that would be good to change while doing the swap. Thanks for any help.

Timing belt and maybe waterpump depending on milage on the donor engine; 2.7 ?

Easiest access you will ever have. Back spark plugs and new wires if you have the intake off , which I imagine you will. You can do the front plugs any time easily.

Yea, 2.7. The one that came out had 184,000 miles the new one has 47,500 miles.

I believe the first belt change is 60k miles ; doing it now would take a fraction of the time , waterpump can wait for next belt change.

Plugs are platinum and in theory I think rated for 100k miles , the back ones need intake removed to change them and new $8 intake gasket for reassembly. Plat plugs occasionally don't make it to 100k , same for the wires. Its your call if the intake manifold is already off for engine install access.

With the glycol out of the engine I would probably put an new engine thermostat in ; then you can leave the glycol for a few years and forget about it. Again kind of a judgement call.

Excellent, timing belt is definitely on the list. Any tips on the swap?

Document EVERY move on a digital camera. Get lots of plastic bags and as you remove a part bag the nuts and bolts and mark the bags with a magic marker. Tag the wiring harness plugs with first aid tape as to where they go as some may look the same and fit the same but be in the wrong location. Check the sensors and add-ons (alternator/intake and exhaust manifolds) to make sure they match the old ones. It's a lot easier to do this BEFORE the new engine is dropped in. The camera shots will really help when you install the new engine and don't remember exactly where everything goes. When you get the engine in you might want to turn it over for 30 seconds and wait a couple of minutes and do it again to get the NEW oil to the parts (lifters) before allowing the engine to actually start.
Good luck and "if" you take pictures put them on PhotoBucket to help others in the future.

Take a good look at the CPS while the engine is out. You didn't say how old the donor engine was, but if it has any age I'd look for bare wires coming out of the CPS.

I haven't changed a Santa Fe engine , only removed a Hyundai transmission for a clutch change recently. But have removed engines on other cars.

To go out through the bottom I think the whole subframe would have to come out; might be easier with engine hoist out through the top. Pictures and tagging stuff always an excellant idea.

A oil change after running engine to warm up might be a good idea; may have been sitting for a while. As suggested make sure of engine compatibility before starting, make sure CVVT , OCV oil control valve etc all match up. I don't that much about the 2.7 mine is the harder to work on 3.5.

My undedrstandfing is that it must come out the bottom.....That is why I was asking if anyone knew for sure. This whole dropping it out the bottom sucks.
