    Prime Day Cadillac Grill Iron?

    The grill iron is $100, but oddly, Amazon has a prime day discount of $80 which makes it $20. Then Cadillac bundles a $20 gift card with it, which I suppose makes it free? I ordered one; they say it will ship Aug 6.
  5. The Cadillac Grill Iron is crafted with the same artful consideration and precision as our vehicles. The stainless-steel finish is designed to be heated over open flames. The sleek, black-lacquered wooden handle offers excellent comfort for any grillmaster. All in a stylish, go-anywhere tote. It’s the Cadillac of branding irons that provides the finishing touch on the Cadillac of steaks, the Cadillac of buns, the Cadillac of cutting boards, the Cadillac of your dreams.

  6. The radio is just a display unit technically. The brains, (amp ) is located behind the back seat. I always like to keep things original so I never tried to do it. I am sure others have done it. Hopefully someone who has will chime in
  7. I recall my 4.9 having a very big crack on exhaust manifold right behind radiator. Now, I think it could be the reason for rough idle. But I never had a poor fuel economy. I think I might have an exhaust leak (invisible crack, bad gasket, etc.) which affects fuel economy so dramatically. I can go ahead and replace the passenger side exhaust manifold, gaskets, etc. But, even replacing oxygen sensors was not a fun work at all on this old girl, that's what makes me a bit reluctant...

  9. Question...So if I wanted to install an "aftermarket" CD stereo head unit,whats the difficulties,if the old unit just unplug with one plug...and the antenna??? I know there's a "module" that has to be purchased to retain the steering wheel radio controls. Thanks...
  10. I'm considering an engine replacement for my 84 Eldorado Biarritz. I am specifically interested in knowing if anyone can recommend a company to purchase a remanufactured 4100, meaning all the "issues" with the 4100 have been addressed. If you've done a 4100 swap, can you share your experience including what you were swapping and whether your ran into any complications?
  11. That link that showed a cracked manifold sounded promising. Adallak I would look them over close. Dumb question but do you hear exhaust noise under the hood? I wonder if it's possible that the exhaust isn't heard from the crack but it allows the infiltration of air changing the O2 reading?

  13. It will not lock as the vin is encrypted into it rather than a code. So as long as the vins match it will work fine I have had no issues. I installed and programmed the same radio in both of my Caddys. I personally would do anything to fix the original. Installing a aftermarket radio is not very easy. And if it has Bose even worse
  14. Thanks for the reply back. All disc's are store bought. No personal "burned" discs. The Caddy is a "Sedan D'ville D'elegance",and yes...its "column" shifted. I haven't taken it out,but yes,the dash colored trim piece...just pops right off. And I saw the "clips",on each side of the radio...that holds it in place. Question...Now i have "disconnected" the battery cable,to try and "reset" the radio. The "theft deterrent" did not activate. Now if I take the radio out of the dash,and unplug it...will the radio theft deterrent,"kick in"...thinking the radio is being "stolen"??? I am mechanicly inclined,and I can open the radio up to see if their's dust,or old grease that has "infiltrated"or soiled parts that the two dosent belong...and clean it with electrical contact cleaner...that instantly dries on contact. Im trying to do everything possible,myself...because if what I do doesn't help,hell...I might as well buy an aftermarket head unit...and call it a day. The cassette works "beautifully"...like its never been used. I got the S.D'ville at an estate sale. It had 50,000m on the clock,no rust...and from an older couple. Other than regular maintaince...she's ok(Northstar.) She has 83,000 on her now,and new struts&springs are in order. I tried to post pics of her,and the radio...but it says they are too large. Navy blue,with navy blue leather interior. No sunroof...
  15. Ok I dont consider the cd cleaner to count as many cd players do not work with them. Is the cd a burned cd or a bought cd? Sometimes they can be picky with burned discs. If it cannot read it it will spit it out. The upside is that if you have to send it out for service is that it is not difficult to remove. Console shift is a pain to do. But column shift is cake. You carefully pop the trim off from around the radio, then there is a clip on each side of the radio that you squeeze to release. Pull the radio out and there is a blue plug and a antenna plug. You may get lucky and find that there is just dried grease where the laser slides. Or even easier to have dust buildup
  16. Have you contacted a caddy dealer? Are you in the US?
  17. Yes...Its a factory in dash,single disc unit. And yes,its a RDS radio. Yes...The little disc icon is "solid". It spits the disc out,and says...DISC ERROR. It spits out the disc cleaner,too.
  18. My 76 Caddy Eldorado convertible needs the gas tank and sender replaced. One site shows GM2114a as the gas tank and another site says it won't work. Can someone give me the correct part number for the gas tank and the fuel sender? Does someone have manuals they would share?

    Sounds like it served you well Jan. We are similar, you wanted to sell it to the right person!

    Vacation with the V

    We are going to use the V a lot this summer. I use it as a daily driver, even in wintertime but this will be the first vacation use. First I'm going on a trip with my seven year old daughter (wife has to work) to celebrate my father’s 75th birthday. The celebration will be in a northern part of Sweden so I suppose that trip will be about a thousand miles. The second trip will be with my family down to Germany through Denmark (I'm allergic to ferries or rather against dents and scratches from other cars). We are going to the southern part of Germany (Berchtesgaden) and enjoy the scenery, probably visit the "eagles nest" and of course enjoy the V at speed on the autobahn! Hopefully I can convince my wife to ride on a museum small gage railway in a part called Harz. Very steep grades and tight curves on that railroad and they use ten-coupled steam locomotives, the most powerful in Germany with their 700 bhp. Not a Big-Boy with almost 7000 bhp, but a large power for a narrow gauge railway. After that it is probably time for new tires... I hope that you guys are enjoying your vacations!

    The STS has left the family

    I've also had the pleasure of the STS (two actually; '06 and '11). After my '11 was wrecked (rear ended at a stoplight, not my fault) I felt loss and missed (and still do) my STS's. Subsequently, looking for a replacement vehicle, I ended up with an XT5 (which I also like a lot though not as I loved my STS). While getting a repair on my XT5 I was given a CT6 as a loaner; this was a joy and brought back the feelings I had for the STS. So, what I'm getting at, if you are looking for similar (and actually, better), maybe keep the CT6 on a consideration (as a replacement). JMO Nice to hear of your story of your STS; sounded as you were in love (as well).
  23. We recently sold the STS after almost 180k miles in the family (199 k miles on the odometer). It was still running very good, no rust, interior almost as good as new but the age and miles was starting to show. It has the half-case oil leak and small stuff needed attention. The catalytic converter gave up and needed replacement so I replaced it with an aftermarket. But that unit was to small for a 4.6 liter engine so I replaced it once again but this time with an used OEM unit that recently gave up. The new owner has owned a lot of American cars and has also worked as a mechanic on several Cadillacs and therefore had "the right buyer profile". I am convinced it has come to a good new home although he didn't seem to be as picky about cleaning and keeping the exterior/interior in good trim as I am...
  24. Yes I have replaced (perfectly good) plugs. And I check them often. They look good. Spark wires are new as well.
  25. Yes, cracked exhaust manifold is a possibility, but you will not know until you actually take it off... Another PITA job, just like removing oxygen sensors was. And chances are it will do nothing ,just like replacing oxygen sensors did.

    2002 ETC A/C Compressor Noise

    Thanks! The compressor is maybe 10,000 miles old, so I'm going to get the clutch replaced. The AC clutch doesn't look like it has the bearing, so I'll get one of those too.
  27. I posted a reply at your other thread on this, mine looked good after I was done also
