The motor and transmission won't come out the top. The proper method is to drop the subframe and separate the engine from the transmission then. I've lifted the engine out the top before, but I wouldn't do it again.

ok droping it from the bottom i do not have any way to get it up high enough to slide the motor out but i really do not mind pulling from the top that is how i normally pull all my motors so you can pull just the motor from the top

I pulled a Vulcan out of the top on a '94. You might have to remove the P/S pump, alternator, and AC compressor to get clearance. Also you'll have to unbolt the torque converter from the flywheel prior to pulling the engine. That's how I did it anyway.

I've heard of people using an engine hoist to lift the car and as to what needs to be unhooked, basically anything that connects the subframe, engine, and trans to the rest of the car.

My opinion and experience: Much easier to pull out the bottom.

Here is what I did in my garage:
1. Rear wheels up on ramps
2. Jacked up front end with floor jack.
3. At the end of the jack stroke, I placed heavy duty jackstands under the subframe.
4. I then continued to jack up using 4x4 blocks between the jack and the subframe.
5. I then placed a double 4x4 across the body just aft of the subframe mounts. The 4x4's were supported by the heavy duty jackstands.
6. Disconnected all hoses, wiring, upper strut mounts, steering shaft, and cables.
7. Using the engine hoist with chains, supported the engine/trans
8. Removed subframe mounting bolts
9. Lower subframe with engine/trans onto a 4 caster dolly
10. Removed assembly from under car

This now allows you to remove the engine/trans from the subframe, replace subframe bushings, and clean and inspect everything. You may also want to paint the subframe to prevent rusting.

Removing the engine/trans this way is about a 4-5 hour job. Reinstallation is just opposite. The actual bolting up didn't take long, it wall all the reconnection of wiring, cables, etc that was time consuming.

I also used this same procedure to replace the engine in my 2002 Olds Silhouette van last summer.
