I have a 2002 Cadillac DeVille that is pumping exhaust gases…

Hello, I have a 2002 Cadillac...
Hello,
I have a 2002 Cadillac DeVille that is pumping exhaust gases into the cooling system. I assume that most likely It has head gasket failure. In order to get those heads removed, would you lower the engine/tranny on the sub-frame? Or the easiest way would be with out removing the engine?
Thanks

We do neither.

Assuming it is a 4.6, we just remove the associated items and remove the heads without dropping the engine or the subframe.
