Thanks for the welcome, I do all my own serviceing, and repairs, and so far compared to the other cars that I have worked on, Regal, Lumina, Sunfire, and other GM cars, G series Vans, The Northstar and the Deville has been a refreshing change. In fact the car that is pictured is a dead ringer for mine, except for the whitewalls. My Dads car is 99 STS, and its also great to work on, I had to replace both Cranksenors, it only took about 30 mins, and the waterpump, is the simplest one I have ever done, only one that comes close is the one on my 3100 M engine on my old 1996 Regal. To the person wanting to know about the 1997 D'Elegance, go for it. You will get great gas Mileage and Great Power, and you can still get it on Regular gas, Premium is nice also. Just one Caveat though, it is still a 8 year old car, therefore expect more maintenance.
