  1. I use after market on my 99 and they work well. GM just wants the business Frank Thats what I thought whats a good after market brand im gonna buy new shoes drums wheel cylinders thanks
  2. Hey everyone I was reading in the manual yesterday and it says i gotta use gm genuine brake parts or the brakes wont work properly is this true if not i will get them somewhere else if so i will get them at cadillac please help thanks
  3. I wonder how much that would be? If not I was gonna take it off and have the whole car painted later on and just leave the top or find a top at a junkyard thats in really good shape I don't know what to do It would be a lot cheaper to have the top replaced than to take it off, fix all of the mounting points for the trim and then have it repainted. ok im gonna try and do that thanks texas jim I would just take it to a good shop and have a new top put on it. (after shopping around for prices...of course)

  5. Hey everyone how are you doing I have a 1993 cadillac Deville with a vinyl top that is in horrible shape since I bought it and is just getting worst I was just wondering how do I take it off i see no screw to take it off like my 88 deville had on the vinyl top is this one just glued on and gotta pry it off or what? thanks for your help and one more quick question my steering wheel is ripping where it has the caddy emblem i like the steering wheel from like a 97 seville is there any way i can put that steering wheel on? again thanks for your help!
  6. Ok thanks everyone how much less fuel economy will i get right now i am getting about 14.5MPG in the city and 23MPG highway Mike, ok thanks a lot All cars are different of course and all I can speak for is "MY" car. The few times I tried running regular in mine... the mileage took a round a 10 percent hit. Plus the performance was also down enough that it was noticeable... at least to me. My mileage on the highway dropped from around 22 to about 20. Since there is only about 10 percent difference in the price of Regular and Premium... I really wasn't saving any money by running the lower octane fuel. Of course.. your car and your driving style may be totally different from mine, so it may benefit you a little bit.

  8. No it's wierd they blink at the same speed just the turn signal bulb stays out when the headlight goes on but blinks when i put the turn signal on and the arrow on the dash stays on only when I put the headlights on. Thanks Texas Jim I would now check the bulb socket for corrosion and check the grounds going to the socket. I might also replace the bulb just for the heck of it. I think that is a dual filament bulb and the parking light filament could be burnt out and one end of it dropped down on the turn signal filament. That would cause the inside light to stay on, but still allow the turn signal portion of the bulb to work. I changed the turn signal bulb and the parking light bulb yesterday im gonna check the socket and the ground
  9. Hey everyone really quick question I know it says to use premium gas but today i mixed 93 premium and 89 I was wondering if I can just use 89 with the mix there is no knocking or pinging I just wanted some opinions because I seen a lot of people use 89 or 87 in there devilles with no problems. Thanks Mike
