Engine Removal

Pulling an engine to make room for a new one:

It was time to pull my old, tired 4AGE 16v engine. Cylinders 2 and 3 had suffered knock and the piston rings were cracked, resulting in a loss of compression. I was only averaging about 17 mpg when I should have been in the 30+ range (indicating a loss of efficiency). To pull an engine you need a set of sturdy axle stands, an engine hoist, and a furniture dolly.
