In your dreams or the noob section?

Seriously, it would make no sense in a car that new. If you want a wrx or sti, sell yours and buy one.

ps. don't bump an old thread next time, start your own in the noob section.

Leave the noob alone he doesn't know any better plus he reminded me to post this pic.




This is my "custom" tool to keep the Flywheel from turning. it is essentially a wooden dowl that i jammed in between the f/w and block. its safe and effective.

Thanks for all the pics, I'm a good mechanic but new to suby's so this made it easy for me to pull my engine and save lots of cash. Especially since I had to do it again a month later because I bought a really ****ty clutch and had to pull it out and put in a stock replacement haha

I would suggest double-nutting the 2 bottom studs on motor(that go through trans),pull them out before pulling engine.
and especially leave them off to install the motor,makes it alot easier.
Alot less room you have to slide the motor and trans to get seperated.

^ combination of swivel head extensions and a little patience. you can do it, but it's not an easy straight shot. i find it's easier to get all the bell housing bolts/nuts out from the top of the motor.

Awesome write up! So need some help, I'm pulling my motor this weekend and i noticed that you hooked the strap to hoist your engine on the driver side onto the ac pump bracket, but where would the best place be to hook it onto the passenger side? thanks for this and all your help!

You can do it wherever works really, I usually thread a bolt into the bell housing and use that. If you have a leveler it works a lot easier than just a chain. If you do it that way it isn't really balanced so you have to pull up on the drivers side also, but it works.

First time engine pull for me.

I have a stock WRX, I haven't unplugged a sensor on the exhaust. I see one on the straight pipe is that it?
Second I cant seem to get the bolts from the down pipe to the straight pipe loose. Any ideas?

I have sprayed penetrating oil. I am struggling with space, or is it muscle power?

Assuming your car is stock or close to stock, the oxygen sensor is on the passenger side of the exhaust manifold kind of behind the passenger front tire. If you dont pull that sensor out you will either not be able to get the motor out or you will damage the sensor when you do it. There is another oxygen sensor on the exhaust right around the center of the bottom of the car (half way between the front bumper and the rear bumper) that typically doesn't need to be removed when you pull the motor, be sure not to mix the two up.

If you're talking about the bolts at the end of the down-pipe next to the cat pipe (or race pipe if you dont have a cat), those are pretty unusual bolts to have an issue with. They are pretty well exposed and should come off easily if you have the correct tools. Be sure to use a six point socket to avoid stripping them. If you need more force, add a breaker bar with a pipe (hack handle?) on the end. If you're still stuck, PM me with your contact info and I will explain it to you. Good luck!

I am getting there. Not breaking things or my hands ;-) Hopefully I will have the motor out on Saturday.

For the front O2 sensor, do I need to take it out (unscrew) of the exhaust pipe or just unclip it from the harness and make it stay with the motor? If I need to take it out so it doesnt get damaged, is it a "simple" unbolt? Some of my other simple things have been a mission. The AC was awful, and the wiring clips so fiddly, I thought I would break the plastic. Now its so obvious.

I am having a lot of trouble with the clutch pin removal, to the point that I am going on day 3 of trying the remove it.
Is there any special trick to getting it out, I tried the battery tie down, and an intake manifold screw which was the same thread pitch to no avail.
Pretty much everything on this car was stuck on, but this bugger seems to really be testing me. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Not that I think it matters, but the car is an 05 wrx

I really struggled with mine. I am assuming you are referring to the "cylinder" that has a 6mm screw thread and is under the hex bolt cap on the side of the transmission.

If so I threaded a bolt in and used leverage(long screw driver) to edge it out horizontally. I also assume you had yanked up on the clutch lever to release it. I don't know if that helped. If its all been stuck enjoy getting the transmission loose from the motor. Putty knife was key for me. That patience persistence and prayer.

I've wiggled the clutch lever back and forth, but I was under the impression that you needed to remove that cylinder before you could lift the lever up to release it. I will have to try to get that up I suppose.
And yes, that cylinder with the hex cover is the same one I am referring to.

Find a flange bolt that fits. Get two big flat screwdrivers or small prybars, one on each side and pry on the bolt. It shouldn't take more than that to get that pin out. Check that the clutch fork is loose.

And if the clutch fork is loose will it wiggle up and down, or back to front? Right now it wiggles back to front just fine, but that's it

I have only done this once before, but mine felt obviously loose. It was free to move in all directions. Good luck.

So just an update, I got it out. I was using a flange bolt before, but just applying pressure from the top. I took nimekijs advice and used a small screwdriver on the left side, and a chisel on the right of the bolt and after a little elbow grease it started inching out. From there the chisel on top and yanking on the bolt got it out, and man was it dirty. That whole car is just disgusting an in need of a major cleaning.
But, short story long, motor is coming out of the car now for a rebuild, and hopefully she'll be back on the road within a month
