  1. Take that beauty cover of and follow the hose in pic 1 and you will see where it goes. You are on the wrong hose in pic 2 . The outlet is right above that radiator hose and close to that dog bone motor mount!!
  2. Beautiful car and close to home, how lucky can a fella get !! Looks great in the pictures with only a few minor flaws. I believe you will be very happy with it . Best of luck!!
  3. 54.5 mpg fleet average !! Is there anything in GM's fleet that gets that, other than a Volt ? That is the biggest joke I have ever heard!
  4. Everyone knows what an Escalade is but with a number it is just that , a number. Everyone knew what an Eldorado or an Deville or Seville was. All these numbers they are going to use on the new cars might work for the new generation ,at least I hope so. The numbers Mercedes and BMW use mean nothing to me. Maybe to the next generation they do,that is what they are aiming at I guess. I guess I am stuck in the past ,but I like it!
  5. The Eldorado did not have a cabin air filter in that last generation.
  6. I will have an older Cadillac eventually, wouldn't mind a newer XTS but that won't be in the budget for years if ever!!!
  7. I thought I might stir up a hornets nest with that post ! I can see where the start stop technology will save a lot of fuel in traffic ,but I don't drive in traffic much and it has to be hard on starters. If I had it I would disable it, someone will invent a chip to disable it they always do. As for active fuel management ,it has been on some Chevy pickups as early as late 07 ,my 09 GMC has it. On some forums there have been some bad reports of camshaft and lifter replacements. They all can't be lies ! There is a chip to prevent the active fuel management from working ,just keeping it in eight cylinder mode. I have the chip and it works good . Fuel mileage loss is about three percent ,very little. I'm not an old man Airmike but I still do like the simplicity of 70's era Caddys. They were pretty loaded ,with power goody's of all sorts. I'm looking at a 78 Eldorado Biarritz with a 425 v-8 . Fuel mileage doesn't matter a lot to me. Still sorry if I offended you technology lovers out there but I do love the 70's and I do love big V-8's. I love all V-8's,I have four and I love them all even with technology. LOL!!
  8. Start and Stop technology and more Active Fuel Management ,more cost to the price of the car and more to go wrong for such a small savings on fuel mileage! I don't mean to be a nattering nabob of negativity but I do have my doubt's. More computer crap on a car . Yeah that's what we need!!
  9. One thing I am sure the CT-6 will bring is a very hefty price tag!
  10. I could see myself in that ride, why I don't know? It is way cool for an old farm boy though!
  11. With all those 2014 model Caddys there are a lot of good deals to be had the longer you wait. Good for consumers, not so good for the GM bottom line!
  12. Those sales numbers on the ELR are not impressing me at all. More importantly they are not impressing GM. General Motors says there won't be a 2015 ELR . They plan on improvements for a new 2016 ELR . If they are smart there won't be a 2016 IMO !!
  13. KHE is right the CT-6 needs to come in at 40 to 45k to be affordable for Americans but will probably be double that at 80 to 90k. I am out at that price and so is a lot of America! Most Cadillacs are already priced to high now accept for the ATS and I do not want a compact Caddy and most Americans don't either at least according to sales numbers.
  14. I have a 2001 esc the same color and I love it. They are beautiful cars. Yours is also very beautiful.
  15. Job well done and good luck in the future. Hope you get to enjoy your Northstar for a long time to come!!
