Engine Removal from 2000 Cherokee Sport
 
:(PLEASE HELP!
Pulling/Removing 2000 Cherokee XJ Engine for Swap/Replace/Trade

My XJ Sport has a donor engine from another 2000 Cherokee XJ but we are having a terrible time removing the dead/original engine.:confused:

Please we are running into issues involving the loosening of nuts/bolts that are holding the engine to the vehicle inside wall. :banghead:

Please is there a special tool to and/or method to remove just the engine so that a donor engine can be dropped in and attached to the transmission?

I am trying to add a photo but only see a video add-on. Please let me know how I can add a photo.

Thank you so much for your helpful insight.

do a google for a service manual.
it will have details on reemoving the motor.

shouldnt be that difficult.
if stuff is rusted use some PB Blaster on it.

Thank you.
Rust abounds and in some cases welding has occurred.:eek:

Are the bolts so rusted that they break when youre trying to remove them?
If so, get them melted off..

Try to use an impact if possible and penetrating lube of some sort. Heat also works well, but most likely the fasteners will break if you can get a good impact on them which is the best. Then you can just replace the fasteners. I don't like to reuse crappy or questionable fasteners.
