Hi all new to this site:D I have a 1999 sportage manual. I today removed the motor and gearbox as things needed fixing what a headack :eek: lol had heaps of problems getting to the 4 top bolts hours later and unbolting the gearbox and sliding it forward I got there:D . So my question is can the engine and gearbox be put back in as a hole unit or is there not enough room to do so. Also is the 1997 engine the same as the 1999 in the sportage found a engine for a good price its out of a 1997 thoe will this matter.
Thanks Tilly

Hi I was asking if I could put the motor and gear box bolted together as 1 unit? is this do able or is there not enough room to do so.
When I removed the engine I also moved the gearbox forward and unbolted it and removed engine by it self and the then I removed the gearbox under the car.
