We remove the engine for major repairs or for engine replacement

We install the car on a lift or an observation ditch

Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery, then remove the positive terminal and remove the battery.

Drain the oil from the engine (article - Checking and replacing the oil in the Nissan Almera engine)

Drain the coolant (article - Checking and replacing the coolant of the Nissan Almera engine)

Disconnect the air filter housing from the throttle assembly (see the article - Removing the throttle assembly of the Nissan Almera K4M engine)

Disconnect the intake pipe of the exhaust system from the exhaust manifold (see the article How to replace the parts of the Nissan Almera muffler system).

How to remove and install the engine of a Nissan Almera carHow to remove the fuel ramp and injectors of the Nissan Almera car

We remove the protection of the fuel ramp (article - How to remove the fuel ramp and injectors of the Nissan Almera car).

Disconnect the tip of the fuel tube from the fuel ramp fitting.

On an engine with a mechanical throttle actuator, disconnect the throttle actuator cable from the throttle assembly lever and receiver (see "How to replace the gas cable of a Nissan Almera car").

Disconnect the tube of the check valve of the vacuum brake booster from the receiver fitting (see "Replacing the main cylinder of brakes and vacuum Nissan Almera").

How to remove and install the Nissan Almera car engine

On an engine with a mechanical throttle valve drive, we compress two latches and disconnect the adsorber purge tube from the hose fitting of the engine idling system

On an engine with an electronic throttle valve drive, we disconnect the fuel vapor supply tube from the throttle assembly (see "Removing the throttle assembly of the Nissan Almera K4M engine").

We remove the power steering tank from the upper crossbar of the radiator frame.

How to remove and install the Nissan Almera car engine

With the head "on 1Z, we turn off the bolt of fastening the bracket of the power steering tube to the cylinder block.

You can dismantle the engine assembly with or without a power steering pump, without disconnecting the hydraulic drive of the amplifier.

In the first case, we disconnect the tube and hose from the pump (see "Removing the Nissan Almera GUR pump"), draining the working fluid from them into the container.

In the second option, we unscrew the bolts securing the power steering pump to the engine bracket and, without disconnecting the tube and hose from the pump, we tie the pump to the upper crossbar of the radiator frame with a cord or wire so that it does not interfere with the dismantling of the engine.

We remove the generator (see "Removing the generator of the Nissan Almera K4M engine").

Removing the starter (see "Removing and checking the starter K4M Nissan Almera").

Unscrew the bolts securing the air conditioner compressor to the bracket (see "How to remove the air conditioner compressor of a Nissan Almera car") and, without disconnecting the air conditioning system tubes, pull the compressor aside and tie it up so that it does not interfere with the removal of the engine.

We remove the radiator of the cooling system (see "How to remove the radiator of a Nissan Almera car").

Disconnect the cooling system hoses from the thermostat cover and housing, as well as from the coolant pump supply pipe.

Disconnect the engine control system wiring harness pads from the connectors of the ignition coils, idling regulator (engine with mechanical throttle valve drive) or throttle control unit (engine with electronic throttle valve drive), fuel injectors, adsorber purge solenoid valve and sensors: oxygen concentration, detonation, absolute pressure and intake air temperature, insufficient oil pressure, coolant temperature, crankshaft position, throttle positions (mechanically driven throttle motor).

We remove the wiring harnesses from the engine to the side.

We remove the gearbox (see "Removing the Nissan Almera gearbox").

We lift the hood and hold it in an upright position.

We fasten the chains of the lifting device by two rings located on the engine.

Pulling the chains, we remove the stop from under the engine, which supported it when removing the gearbox.

We remove the right support of the power unit (see "Replacing the supports of the K4M Nissan Almera power plant").

Before removing the engine, it is necessary to check again whether all hoses, tubes, wires are disconnected from the engine and taken aside.

How to remove and install the Nissan Almera car engine

Using a lifting device, we lift and remove the engine from the engine compartment.

We install the engine on the car in reverse order.
