Hallo, I'm new.
I have a '99 DeVille D'Elegance, a gift from an Aunt who cherished it, whose children didn't (at least not sufficiently so to invest the necessary time and money), who hoped her nephew just might. Or maybe she just thought I was gullible.
My cousins say it runs great and everything works, it just guzzles antifreeze.
It certainly looks good, and everything I could test without starting the car does indeed work.
First Question: What's involved in removing the heads? My Haynes manual says special tools and procedures are involved and to let the dealer handle this job. I suspect this effort would be a waste of time, which I'm willing to gamble but not if I have to pay for it.
Second Question: Can the engine be removed through the hood opening? Is it advisable? Is there a readily available manual that details the procedure?
My Haynes says to drop the subframe complete with the entire driveline, then lift the car off of it. I'm not equipped for that sort of operation.
