1986. How do I remove oil pan gasket?


See if you can get a socket to tighten up the bolts. If not , a temporary fix may be to use a bottle of oil leak fix from an auto parts store. There is something in the liquid which causes the gasket to swell and slow down or stop oil leaks. Ive heard though that long term, this stuff can cause the gasket to eventually fail completely and will have to be changed anyway.

I need to know where the plug wires go.from spark plug to distibuter cap on a 1986 4.1 coupe deville(cad.)


FIRING ORDERS NOTE: To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement. If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes in your book to reflect how your engine is wired. Fig. 1: GM (Cadillac) 250 (4.1L) V8 GM (Cadillac) 273 (4.5L) V8 Engine firing order: 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Distributor rotation: counterclockwise 85872009.gif Fig. 2: GM (Oldsmobile) 307 (5.0L) V8 GM (Oldsmobile) 350 (5.7L) V8 w/EFI Engine firing order: 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Distributor rotation: counterclockwise 85872009.gif Fig. 3: GM (Buick) 252 (4.1L) V6 Engine firing order: 1-6-5-4-3-2 Distributor rotation: clockwise 85872010.gif Fig. 4: GM (Cadillac) 368, 425, 472, 500 V8 Engine firing order: 1-5-6-3-4-2-7-8 Distributor rotation: clockwise 85872011.gif Fig. 5: GM (Cadillac) 429 V8 Engine firing order: 1-8-7-2-6-5-4-3 Distributor rotation: clockwise 85872012.gif prev.gif next.gif
