You do not have to remove the heads or engine. You need a support fixture to hold the engine, then you need to remove the cradle (small frame that supports the engine on the bottom) The transmission can now be removed. Unless you have the equipment it could be very dangerous to do this without a lift, transmission jack and support fixture. bluebirdmate (transmission weighs approximately 500 pounds)

Timing set up for cam gears on a 1999 cadillac deville 4.6L

First make sure timing marks on crank and timing gear are pointing towards each other and in alignment. Next make sure that the camshaft gear pins are pointing down and at 90 degrees to heads. Put chains back on. Thats it. Make sure all the marks are exactly like I wrote or you will be tearing the motor back apart and doing it again.

1999 cadillac deville air wont work

There's a blower motor (fan) under the hood and up against the firewall near the center of the car that takes some work to remove. It has gone out in the last 2 of my 4 Cadillacs. Turns out if you're not real careful with the positioning of the spark plug wires they will brush up against it, and if one of them gets cracked or brittle it will "arc" and short out the blower motor. The a/c compressor should still come on (you'll hear a click when it engages) but you won't get any air blowing into the cabin, hot or cold.

The part was like $200 stock (year 2000 prices) and it took about an hour to remove it. My Caddy at that time had this damn strut bar going across the engine bay which we eventually removed to get to the blower motor.
