SOURCE: windows wont go up and down
I had the same problem with my 2001 LeSabre rear window. Use a small paint scraper to gently pry the door panel in the area of the plastic buttons. Remove the plastic cover surrounding the door handle and there will be a screw to remove. The door panel should now be able to lift up at the window ledge and then you can remove the wiring harnesses from the panel to get it out of the way.
With the window jammed (with a wooden wedge) in the up position, you will see a hex head screw holding the window mechanism to the glass at each end of the glass. Just loosen these two screws about one and half turns. Look at the motor bracket and you should see approx. 3 or 4 hex head screws holding the motor to the metal door panel. Remove those screws and you should be able now to wiggle the window motor and mechanism out of the door panel. You will probably find that the braided cable connecting the motor pulley to the window arms has broken or is jammed inside the motor. I have taken this apart, reset the cable but it only worked once again before it jammed up again inside the motor. Go to your local Auto Wreckers and order a replacement motor and mechanism complete assembly for about $150. GM wants double that price! Good luck!

It has been My Experience that Most Repairs on this Vehicle ARE PRICEY and it is Not Worth the Maintnance Cost For Instance To Replace the STARTER One Must Remove the Engine Mount This tacks On an Axtra 80 Dollars to Lobor To Replace The Engine Labor ALONE is Around 1,500.00 Cmopared to 6-8 Hundred on Most other Makes & Modles I Personaly Would NOT own One.

SOURCE: blown head gasket
I would change both, as well as use new head bolts. Make sure your heads are not warped or cracked, especially the one that is leaking. There may not be any need to change the head if it is not cracked. These are prone to blowing a gasket especially after 150K miles or so. It will not cost a huge additional amount to change both head gaskets since the engine will have to be disassembled down to the heads anyway. Hope this helps you, Rick

it's in the fuel tank! need to get it u in the air about 4 or more feet of the ground. you may get away with it being less and there is two straps holding the tank it they are attached to the body with 15mm bolts. you will need to disconnect the filler neck where you put gas by taking the hose clamps off and then disconnect fuel lines and electrical after you have it half way down straps removed! ask any more question you have
