Question about Cadillac DeVille
3 things you can do here;
1 You can re-tap the hole one size larger and use a larger diameter bolt or stud. If you use this solution the component being bolted down will have to have a clearance hole drilled in it to take the larger diameter bolt or stud
2 If you're dealing with stripped stud hole you can re- tap the hole one size larger and use a" stepped " stud . One end is the larger thread the rest of the stud is the original diameter and thread.
3 The best solution, particularly if your dealing with a thread in an aluminium casting, is to fit a thread insert. These are sold under a range of names e.g Helicoil, Recoil, and come as a kit made up of a tap, a quantity of thread inserts and an insertion tool. Each kit only covers one thread size.
Hope this helps

all Zetec engines (2.0 DOHC) are NOT interference engines. There are deep reliefs cut into the top of the piston to clear the valves when they are fully extended. There will be no valve damage if the timing belt breaks on a Zetec engine.

The Head bolts are located below the cams, so you have to take the cams out to get to the bolts.
The torque specs for the head bolts in sequence is 20, 40, then end at 63ft lbs. Be sure to apply anti sieze or dip the head bolts in oil, before you torque them down or you might pull out the threads. (Not a good thing TRUST ME!)
Hope this helps.

There are no timing marks. Special tools are required to lock the cams and crankshaft in place while the belt is reinstalled.
