I have a 2002 Sonata auto with a 2.7 v6. The manual I have says to remove the engine and transmission form the bottom. Can the engine be removed from the top without the transmission?

Thanks.

I'm not sure you drop the engine and transmission from underneath the 02 Sonata....I believe the engine cradel will be to tight....But my suggestion would be A.Drop the engine cradel B.Pull the engine and transmission both...the simple and quickest way though is just drop the engine cradel......I have pictures and videos out linning how to on my facebook page(east end motors).....

I've done a few of the 2.4 from the top....

With the 2.7, just clean the front of the engine off of the crank pulley and belt tension arm-pulley assembly and that should buy you all the room you need to seperate engine from trans.. rempove radiator and fans so you dont mash bank 2 cylinder head into the radiator and bust it....

Oh yea, take the hood off first, gives you more room to work and better lighting to se where you going.
