What size socket should be used to remove the oil drain plug?

Can you tell me if it is really difficult or not that hard for a mechanically inclinded (but, not a professional car mechanic) to change the front struts on a 2003 Deville? I've done quite a lot of maintenance on my own cars over the years, but I'm just a bit unsure trying to tackle this one without some kind of input. Thanks, Glenn.

Air works great but now that cold weather is here I have no heat. Could it be the thermostat or the temp sensor switch?

I have an 82 Coupe Deville and the 6 way adjustable seat motors activate when the tilt and forward switches are engaged but the seats don't move. This just suddenly started at the same time on both sides. Does anyone know what may cause this?

Codes E-13 & E-39 were found after Service Soon Light came on. Mechanic is telling me that the transmission code requires more diagnostic code which will cost me about 200.00. Also told that trans oil cooler hose has leak, engine oil cooler hose has leak, engine oil pan wet/leaking, trans oil pan wet/leaking, power steering pressure hose leaking/power steering pump going out. Most of these parts have to be gotten from the dealership?

my anti lock light, located just below the emergency brake light, which is on also, neither will go off. why? it just came on last week.

bought a 1997 cadillac deville two weeks ago from private owner in arizona, 56,000 miles, took for emissions testing and failed. Replaced four O2 sensors, drove through drive cycle and 'check engine' back on, then took to cadi dealership and they say needs head gasket replaced, Question is can i use anytype of sealent or another option besides thousands of dollars of repair?

ABS console light comes on occasionally

sometimes it will run for a few minutes and other times it will just cut off

It seems that the noise is comming from the air conditionar compressor. The noise is present when the clutch is disengaged, and compressor isn't running. Does it make sense to replace the complete compresson not just the pully and clutch.
