    I'm pulling the blown motor on my 1999 Chevy Suburban 2500 tomorrow, and want to know what pitfalls to look out for- it's been years since I pulled a motor.

    Anyone have a step by step guide, is it in the Chiltons's books?

    I know to jack up the motor, support the tranny, loosen motor mounts, drain power steering fluid and radiator, remove radiator, remove wiring harness hookups, etc....but what about the AC? Can you take hoses off from places and not leak coolant?

    Also, the tranny/engine meeting looks a bit tricky, and lots of lines run for AC....

    Any help is appreciated.

    AC !!!!!!!!!!!, i would just unbolt compressor and move all that out off the way ...kind off hard but it works..unless u drain the system !!!!!

    Cool, that helped. I've got almost everything off and all fluids drained, just going to jack the tranny, then jack the engine, then get the motor mounts, then the last 4 tranny bolts, and it should go!

    What a job, nothing like my old '69 firebird (miss her!).
