2003, 3.4L V6 transverse mount, 120,000 miles
It’s time for another engine rotation. The Haynes manual says that I have to disconnect the accelerator cable and cruise control cable. Do I really have to? They seem to have a generous arc over the engine. And if I do it, I’d rather just remove the 2 bolts on the bracket. Am I missing something? I’m not in a huge hurry. The engine sounds fine, and the 1 plug I removed looks pretty good for 120,000 miles. I haven’t found a suitable place to hook the ratchet cable onto underneath the car. Any suggestions?
