SOURCE: Removal of oil pan?

The car has three mounts in a triangle configuration. The front trans mount, the passenger side motor mount and the rear motor mount. I do not know if anyone has ever successfully raised the engine to slide the pan out, but remember, if you do this, the pan goes back on with anaerobic gasket maker on it, so make sure you can slide it out with grating on the underside of the block. If you can't, then it will likely be impossible to get back in place without smearing the gasket maker all over and making a heck of a mess. The commonly accepted way to remove the pan is to remove the two front subframe bolts and allow the subframe to drop enough to get the clearance you require. The bolts are 18 mm heads and are really torqued on there so you will need a serious breaker bar and cheater bar to go with it. USE SOLID JACKSTANDS or BETTER YET, RAMPS to do this. The force you will need to apply can take the car right off a single jack.

SOURCE: Need torque specs for oil pan bolts

torque specs for these bolts can be found in a Haynes or Chilton manual availiable from your local parts store, or maybe at your local library, however these bolts are usually no more than 14 ft pounds, unlike cylinder head bolts, the bolts do not need to have any stretch factor to hold the oil pan gasket in place or sealed.

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.

What is the torque on the bolt to replace camshaft sensor on 2003 cadillac cts?


there\'s \'nippidy-nip\' tight(platic cover bolts) , there\'s tight( coil bolt), there\'s tight tight( brake caliper bolt), there\'s Eff Tee tight(tight - suspension bolts), and there\'s might be beyond. Yours is just \'tight\'.

If you use a 1/4 socket set just give it 2-3 pound of torque at the end of the handle.

Don't know where camshafts r place


why dont you look in the service manual . hopefully for the sake of your engine heads you have a service manual because if you didnt torque the head bolts it the proper sequence and to the correct torque specs then you have trashed the brand new head gaskets and more than likely have warped the heads .

How do you take torque coverter flywheel


Not really sure of your question but am going to guess you already know that the torque converter is in the bell housing of the transmission and you know the transmission needs to be removed. Again guess you are trying to locate the bolts that hold the converter onto the flywheel so am going to go with that. there is an access plug on the transmission (see picture below) If I'm not mistaken after you pull that plug out there may be an air deflector type thing that also comes out. The just rotate the engine until the bolt lines up with that hole. Remember only to rotate the engine clockwise using the center bolt on the harmonic balancer. Hope this is what you were looking for......

    1. Loosen the bar assembly through-bolts.
    2. Remove the inboard strut nuts.
    3. Remove the brace assembly.
    4. Reinstall the inboard strut nuts.
  3. Remove the air intake duct.

    You must support or remove the engine. If the engine is not support you may damage the engine, transaxle, halfshafts or many other components.
  9. Remove the three top transaxle-to-engine block bolts and install a suitable engine support fixture. Load the support fixture by tightening the wingnuts several turns in order to relieve the tension on the frame and the mounts.
  10. Turn the steering wheel to the full left position.
  11. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove both front tire and wheel assemblies.
  12. Drain the automatic transaxle fluid into a suitable container.
  13. Remove the right and left front ball joint nuts, then separate both control arms from the steering knuckle.
  14. Remove the right halfshaft from the transaxle only. Do not remove the halfshaft from the hub/bearing assembly. NOTE: Carefully guide the output shaft past the lip seal. Do not allow the halfshaft splines to contact any portion of the lip seal.
  15. Remove the left halfshaft from the transaxle and hub/knuckle assembly. Be careful not to damage the pan.
  16. Support the transaxle with a suitable stand.
  17. Remove the bolts at the transaxle and the nuts at the cradle member. Remove the left front transaxle mount.
  18. Remove the right front mount-to-cradle nuts. Remove the left rear transaxle mount-to-transaxle bolts.
  19. Remove the torque strut bracket from the transaxle.
  20. Remove the right transaxle mount-to-transaxle bolts.
  21. Remove the left rear transaxle mount. Remove the transaxle brace from the engine bracket.
  22. Remove the stabilizer shaft link-to-control arm bolt. NOTE: Be sure to matchmark the flywheel-to-converter relationship for proper alignment upon reassembly.
  23. Unfasten the flywheel cover bolts, then remove the cover. Matchmark the flywheel-to-torque converter installed position, then remove the flywheel-to-converter bolts.
  24. Remove the bolts attaching the rear frame member to the front frame.
  25. Remove the front left cradle-to-body bolt and the front cradle dog leg-to-right cradle member bolts.
  26. Remove the frame/cradle assembly by swinging it aside and supporting it with a jackstand.
  27. Disconnect the oil cooler lines from the transaxle, then plug the lines to avoid contamination.
  28. NOTE: One bolt located between the transaxle and the engine block is installed in the opposite direction.
  29. Remove the remaining lower transaxle-to-engine bolts and lower the transaxle from the vehicle. Be careful when removing the transaxle to avoid damaging the right-hand output shaft, shaft seal, hoses, lines and wiring.

2003 cadillac cts drive shaft is making knocking noise


My 2003 CTS had the same noise problem while on vacation one day. When I returned from the vacation and dropped it off at the Caddy dealership it was revealed that several of the "U" joint nuts had worked themselves loose. A quick fix was to tighten up the "U" Joint bolts and the problem was solved!
