Every once in a while, there comes the need to remove the engine from your vehicle. This could be for several reasons; to replace the engine, to rebuild it, to clean it, or just to change one part on it. I have created a short set of instructions here that aren't too specific. This will focus around the LT1 platform engine in a 1996 Camaro, but the process is relatively the same for most other situations. I don't recommend a novice mechanic trying to take on a task like this. If you're unfamiliar with a lot of technical car parts and processes, this isn't for you. If everything were to be documented on removing an engine, you'd end up with a novel to read. With that being said, good luck and remember to just have fun with it.
Step 1: Remove Air Intake
First things first, remove the air intake all the way up to the throttle body. There may be a mass air flow sensor that will need to be disconnected as well. Usually, all this can be removed with just a spade bit screwdriver. After all this is removed, there will more room to get at the radiator and all the water hoses.
