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 di I replace a catalytic convertor


Replacing a catalytic converter ranges from easy to moderate for most DIY mechanics. It is best to take off the entire exhaust system (not the exhaust manifold or headers) for a through inspection when doing this job as a bad catalytic converter is a sign that other parts of the exhaust system may be requiring replacement as well including the muffler(s) and tail pipe(s). Tenneco's Walker Muffler site has detailed schematics for both domestic and foreign cars. TRW Aftermarket may carry them too. (If you own a very expensive car; you plan on keeping for a long time , see about a stainless steel exhaust system... Borla, Remus, Supersprint, Bosal, and ANSA make many for foreign cars.) The other thing(s) to check and remove before taking the exhaust pipes off are the 1 or 2 Oxygen sensors... they will affect your gas mileage significantly. Unplug the wires to them and unscrew the front one and look at it. If it's filthy fouled replace it and the lower (if there are 2) one too... the information from both of them influences the car's ECM/ECU computer to adjust the air/fuel mixture.. (NGK, Beru, and Bosch make oxygen sensors for most cars.) Ensure you buy new exhaust pipe hangers and mounting bolts, if your hangers don't include them. Use Penetrating oil on a COLD exhaust system to help free up the bolts that join the lower part of the exhaust manifold to the first part of the exhaust system. Letting it sit overnight seems to work best. You may need a new gasket there so prepare and buy a new one to replace it. (When replacing, tight is good, too tight is bad as you may break off the stud or bolt.) IMPORTANT!!! Old catalytic converters need to be disposed of as hazardous waste as they contain several gridded wafers of electroplated platinum base metal. (Contact the new catalytic converter seller to see if they will take your old one or contact your city or county disposal office to see how to properly dispose of a used one.) Exhaust pipes typically fail where there are bends as the metal is stretched and thinner there... look for holes and rust. Typically, a ratchet set, rubber mallet and hacksaw may be required to cut a catalytic converter out and then crush the round inner sleeve remaining inside the exhaust pipes ends with a thin flat chisel, pulling it out of the "good" exhaust pipes using locking pliers (a.k.a. Vise Grips tm). (Alternatively, a rubber mallet may be used to strike the catalytic converter to break it loose from the exhaust pipe ends... DO NOT DO THIS if the catalytic converter is in the disintegration stage. Do Not use the mallet on the exhaust pipes as they will bend!) Use crocus cloth or sand paper to smooth the inside of the exhaust pipe connections and ensure by trial off the car that the new catalytic converter goes in the pipe ends easily before mounting the separate pieces on the car... terrible to learn it won't go in, due to carbon soot or rust when you're on your back underneath!

How do I replace the oil pan gasket on a 2001 GMC Yukon XL?


Changing the oil pan gasket on a GMC Yukon XL is realtively simple, but does require removal of the exhaust pipe. You will need a new oil pan gasket and a new exhaust pipe flange gasket.
Put the car on ramps or jacks to access the undercarriage.
Remove the exhaust pipe by removing the 3 nuts holding the exhaust pipe flange to the exhaust manifold. These nuts often rust and prior application of penetrating oil may be required to remove them without damage. Once the pipe is unbolted, work the exhaust system loose from the hanging brackets. In most cases the entire system does not have to be removed since there is enough room to remove the pan with only the front hangers removed.
Drain the oil from the engine
Remove the 10 mm bolts holding the pan to the block.
Remove the old gasket material and scrape any remaining gasket from the block and pan.
Install the new gasket. Forma-Gasket or a similar product may be used in small quantities to "glue" the new gasket in place and prevent shifting while the pan is reattached to the block.
Reinsall the 10 mm bolts in a cross pattern to ensure the gasket is compressed evenly. Do not overtighten the bolts.
Replace the pipe to flange gasket between the exhaust pipe and the exhaust manifold with a new part.
Reattach the exhuast pipe to the hangers.
Install the 3 bolts connecting the pipe flange to the exhaust manifold.
Fill the engine with oil.
