Does 1999 Park Ave engine come out top?

1999 Buick Park Ave with 3.8
I may need to change the engine and I am wondering if the engine can be easily removed from the top after I remove the hood
Thanks

It will come out the top, but some of the mounts will have to be disconnected from the bottom

Of course "easily" is a relative term.....

Thanks people
I used to work on cars and truck when younger and likely have about 50 pulls to my name.
Never did a front wheel though.
Did a van thru the bottom in a driveway and never again.
If the engine comes out the top then I can do it in my dads shop. We have no hoist but can use a jack and stands to do the bottom stuff.
I bought a loaded 99 Park Ave for dirt cheap and it has an engine knock to I figure to yank the engine and see whats wrong (I have about 20 or 30 engine rebuilds from when I was young)

Thanks again
