The powertrain comes out the bottom - you use jacks and lifts to raise the front end off the disconnected powertrain. Drop the entire cradle onto a pallet jack.

You need a 2000 - 2002 VIN Y (275 hp / 3.11 final drive) engine/transmission.

...........here's a 1998 dropped out the bottom.

...... and here's a Deville being lifted off the powertrain.

You will NEED the real GM/Cadillac service manual.

Define blown motor? How many miles on it? HG's are the weak link, otherwise the motors are relatively bullet proof.

Yup, that would qualify as a "blown motor". Pretty rare, dare I ask how it happened?
