engine swap

We are trying to swap a 3.4l motor in a 93 chevy lumina z34. Neither haynes or chilton are clear about the motor mount locations. We would perfer to leave the transaxle & drive axles in the car. Can anyone point me to the mounts?

Thanks!!!

Throw out the Chilton and Haynes manual, they are both useless for this type of repair. Alldata or OEM manual for a repair of this depth.

What are you trying to accomplish? Are you replacing a bad engine?

Mike from nj,

This is a chevy lumina with a 3.4 liter engine. We need to change it out due to problems in the old engine. We think we have everything disconnected but we still can not get it to come out. There must be an engine mount that we can not fine. Haynes says there are four mounts but we can only find three. It's probably at the belt end of the engine.

Thanks

Again, Chilton and Haynes manuals are useless for major repairs.

This type of repair separates the men from the boys with regard to service information.

If you won't pony up for a GM manual, get a 25 dollar Alldata.com subscription.

Will pay you back in the first hour of use.

Regarding the mounts, see any GM dealer's parts counter for an exploded view of the engine mounting from the parts books.

get a flashlight and look everywhere, especially look behind the engine for anything like wires, hoses, and another mount between the engine and trans area. sometimes the alignment dowels between the engine and trans rust it together, meaning you need a good pry bar to pop them apart, you better also have the torgue converter bolts out, the engine will not fit out with them still in. if the engine is seized, you need to figure something out to get those bolts out
