No but the cylinder sleeves are a real blast to change out once they crack. or am I thinking of the 4100? they both suck.

when'* it going to be for sale and the new beater post up?

Doesn't look bad and should suit the beater usage just fine.

That car will have the 4T60E HD.... make sure to change the fluid and filter...

The 4.9 is good motor... Its enough to move the caddy around..

The motor will run forever.... Just make sure to never run it hot at all... DO NOT OVERHEAT this motor...

The 4100 was a total POS from the word go... The 4500 was a good improvement... Used to be we would swap in a 4500 in the place of a 4100 to avoid problems..

Looks like an ok winter beater...

Now are you done buying cars ? lol

Have a *Mint* Condition 86 Fleetwood D'elegance, C body. You gotta use the special GM cooling pellets with every coolant change. The car i have is in neer showroom condition. The first owner barely drove it. Every single part on the vehicle at 138,000kms was factory. Then i dumped 5000 into it fixing every single thing that started going wrong. Love that little beast. Though the 4.1 in mine has 120hp :( But then again these cars are made for cruising.
