Engine lift points?

Hey everyone!
I need to replace the front subframe on my car. I have an engine support beam, but I don't know where to support the engine from. There's nothing about it in the Haynes manual or the owner's manual.

If someone could help me out, I'd appreciate it a lot. I've worked on other vehicles before but this is my first time needing to hoist/support the engine and it's extremely frustrating being stuck at the first step!

Thank you!

I've just used a floor jack with a piece of wood under the transmission and let the passenger side and rear mounts support the rest.

Seeings as you have a beam though, there is a hook on the top of the transmission below the air intake tube and behind the transmission dipstick.

Yes, it is in the service manual under replacing the transmission. There are two spots were you can screw in bolts to attach an engine hanger.

Hello!
Thank you for your response. I have located both (via the first post and an Eric The Car Guy video), but I am curious as to which service manual are you referring to? I only have the Haynes Manual and the Owners Manual.
Thanks!

Oh great, yeah the factory service manual is what I was referring to. It's a must have!
