4.9 engine


Recommended Posts

Hello all, I'm about to swap for a 94 Deville with a 4.9 in it. I once had a 92 and loved it, traded it for a 95 Eldo with a Northstar in it....trouble from day one...traded that for a Camry. Anyone have any horror stories about the 4.9? I have some about the northstar

The 4.9 is a reliable engine. At higher mileage, they may exhibit the main bearing thump noise but that is totally harmless and easily fixed by replacing the #1 main bearing with the service replacement bearing.
