  1. Cadillac CT6 @ 119 mph in a 65 mph zone

    Lol. So it was A Cadillac she was styling in. At least she wasnt hiding anything
  2. Oil Leak Fixed - Motor Purr

    Well I for one say that if there are 2 options 1 being to remove the engine and reseal it 2 try a bottle of snake oil It may be worthwhile to try option 2 even if it works for a period of time. especially if option 1 is not a option. although I do not believe in most snake oils (miracles in a bottle) sometimes it may help to get a little while more. I stress that it may be temporary.
  3. My DeVille Got Hit

    weird. I do it by 3 stage wet sanding, then 3 coats of good clearcoat. then wax. Mixed luck. I swear my 96 Deville had glass headlamps. They used 9006 and 9005 bulbs but the assemblies were glass. Were mint. I dont remember what my Seville has
  4. Just because the towers on the coil packs dont have rust, or have minimal rust doesnt mean they are fine. If this were my car I would get it properly diagnosed for the miss and very likely replace the other coil pack. Any cracking in the coil pack and I replace them. My eldo had issues like you describe and once I replaced both coils it ran like new. Most times I thought it was running fine when the light came on but once they were replaced it purred. Both were bad. 1 is grey, 1 is black. But both are interchangeable. spend a little and get the proper codes, that will greatly help you. As for injector issue... Rarely do I have any issues, not saying it is not possible, but maybe less likely
  5. My DeVille Got Hit

    I know multiple people that owned 2000-2003 Cadillacs. None own them now. all had the same consumption issue.
  6. My DeVille Got Hit

    Or closer to me. I would love to have another 96 Deville
  7. My DeVille Got Hit

    Good for you. Hard work pays off. I would absolutely fix the Deville before buying a Eldo. I have had 2 eldos and although very nice cars truly no comparison to the Deville. Especially the 96. I would love to get my 96 Deville back. Things started changing in 1997 and seemed to get cheaper. 96 was a wonderful year. Last year of the skirts, glass headlights, and other things The eldos had issues. Door panels were not great .The 00-03 engines love to use more than marginal oil. When I bought my last eldo I drove it hard and I still had to put oil in it once a week. I travel too much to have to do that. I replaced it with my 97 D'elegance and have not added any oil since. Same thing with my Seville, Never had to add any oil yet. My honest opinion is that the Deville is the top model of the E/K series. It has the best comfort, ride, and performance all in one. I can go all day. I dont want to be judged, just giving my opinions having owned many
  8. my 01 eldo had issues with misfires and I pulled the cylinder code. The tool I used was Innova 3100. Like that one anyway but a little older model. It works nicely for ecm and abs. and it shows monitor status
  9. My decent code reader states what cylinder is missing. I would not be surprised if the other coil assembly was bad. They were very common to getting heat cracks and intermittently failing. I dont recommend putting a used coil unit but rather a new oe unit also there may be oil filled in one or more of the plug wells causing issues as well. If there is I would replace the boot
  10. I will PM you so as to not hijack the thread
  11. I would run the other way from a 2003 6.0. The oldest I would buy would be a 2008 as they made alot of improvements based on the prone failures of the earlier years. I have worked on a good hundred of the 6.0s and They are all in Buses. Not much fun. If I were to replace the egr cooler I would pull the oil cooler and rebuild it. If the tube to the turbo is not a solid pipe, replace it. sorry I could go all day. As for the exhaust issue with the EGR, where do you think the crack is located? Must have been interesting to figure that out. How far has it been driven since it is no longer overheating? Thanks for posting
  12. HeadGasket Job Done 1998/1997 Eldo

    A good Northstar will be incredible. and around 96 with the introduction of OBD2 they seem to be better tuned. It is so glad to see others wanting to keep these Cadillacs going. Excellent post
  13. 04 CTS Sunroof 1st gen or 2nd?

    Nice reply
  14. They dont have the access plate anymore on the newer body style? I know the eldo did til 02 The Deville did til 99 But the seville body changed drastically in 98. Same engine though
  15. My DeVille Got Hit

    it is so easy for the insurance to just total things, regardless of the situation. that is where we take the loss. Few people fight for what they hold value to. If this was one of mine I would not go without a big fight. It helps to provide records of service, investments (repairs and restoration) tires, dealer, etc... I really wish you the best of luck. Just hold onto some sanity and you will get through it.
