If the other windows are working, my gut feeling is that either the the switch for that window, but on the driver's set of switches is dead, or the motor pooped out. The easiest way to find out is...

The short answer is no, you don't need that tool. Just be careful when removing the engine. Like wtdash said, remove the 4 t.c. bolts first, and then make sure the t.c. doesn't come with the engine...

You are not the first to fight this one. On the last one I had to remove, it was just too tight to get it off with the axle in place. I ended up just popping the axle out of the tranny. I didn't...

That could just be the difference in your torque wrench. Get it hella-tight and call it a day. I didn't even measure my angle, but just tightened to 125ft/lbs and called it good. I've done at...

Any non-AVCS SOHC EJ25 will technically work. The biggest issue is that if you have an EGR and the new motor does not, you'll need to drill/tap the head. Beyond that, the above post is correct. ...

Use your intake, crank pulley, and left cam pulley. Check to see if your car has an EGR valve, and if it does, make sure the new motor has one too. It's mounted to the back of the left head. (You...

Um, bad battery cable. I would bet the positive cable(s) are corroded inside the sheath of the cable. Inspect the cables closely.
