This needs to be done by a muffler shop, you will need a Oxyacetylene torch to heat the pipe and get the catalytic converter off.

I need to remove the exhaust manifold on the right side of a 94 4.9l engine in a cadillac deville. It has a broken bolt in the exhaust. What is involved in removing the manifold?


I suggest you use all new exhaust manifold hardware and torque new bolts to 20 Ft Lbs.
4.5L and 4.9L Engines
RIGHT
Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the air cleaner. Remove the exhaust crossover pipe. Disconnect the oxygen and coolant temperature sensors. Remove the catalytic converter-to-AIR pipe clip bolt. Remove the upper manifold-to-cylinder head bolts. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Disconnect the converter air pipe bracket from the stud and remove the converter-to-manifold exhaust pipe. Support the engine cradle with screw jacks and remove the rear cradle bolts. Loosen the front cradle bolts and slightly lower the Engine cradle. Remove the remaining exhaust manifold-to-cylinder head bolts, the AIR pipe, and the manifold. Clean the gasket mounting surfaces.
To install:
Install the exhaust manifold and replace the AIR pipe. Tighten the manifold mounting bolts to 16-18 ft. lbs. (21-24 Nm). Install the manifold-to-converter exhaust pipe and replace the converter air pipe bracket to the stud. Raise the Engine cradle and install the rear cradle bolts. Tighten to 75 ft. lbs. (102 Nm). Lower the vehicle. Replace the upper manifold-to-cylinder head bolts. Replace the converter air pipe to AIR pipe clip bolt. Connect the coolant temperature and oxygen sensor connectors. Replace the exhaust crossover pipe. Replace the air cleaner and connect the negative battery cable. Start the Engine and check for leaks.

How can i remove my Cadillac converter off my 1995 ford Windstar?


You can not remove it without replacing it as that is a federal offense. Catalytic converters are an emission control device and have to be on the vehicle and only removed to have a new one in its place.

2003 vw jetta starts hard runs rough could it be plugged Cadillac converter or cracked coil


Not the converters. But check them to see if there is nothing in them. I've seen the converters blow apart and clog the muffler. Have the codes read.

I bought a Cadillac SRX 2010 in USA and shipped it to Europe. How do I convert the radio FM system to work with European frequencies instead of the USA frequencies?


.

Hi, had the same problem in NZ. You can buy a little frequency converter device, Connect the areal wire and power it up, does everything for you. If you cannot find one of those in Europe, the best way is to install a local radio. Good luck.

How to get hc ppm down on 1991deville 4.9


It could be from unburnt fuel. Try a new catalytic converter. Have the muffler shop install a Universal type converter not an OEM. Universal type is much cheaper. Be sure to keep your old converter. You can recycle it for enough money to pay for the new converter installation. Don't let the muffler shop have it. They recycle those things for big bucks. If they want it ,sellit to them. I had a universal converter put on my Buick Park Avenue for $150.00, including labor. Recycled the old converter for $197.00 the same day. The old original equipment converters are worth a lot more than the newer ones because of the platinum pellets inside.

I had my old catalytic converter turn red and was told by a work mechanic that I needed a new one. So I had a new one professionally installed. I have changed the spark plugs, spark plug wires. PCV valve,...


engine is running rich. Some reasons might be MAF sensor or computer. Is the engine light still on, or what are the codes you got from the previous scans?
