Ah. I guess I read the wrong information all these time. I got P041 code indicating a cam sensor problem. I do have a northstar not a 4.9L engine. Thanks Logan for the diagram. Is it easy to reach the sensor?
I just ran across this site, joined, and wanted to introduce myself.
I am fortunate enough to have a landlord who lets me drive his '96 LE Cadillac Sedan Deville. Sweet ride that he loves, but hasn't driven himself in over five years and won't sell.
I've grown to love the car myself over the last several years and am, more or less, promised to inherit the car, eventually. Seeing is believing...
Charlie will turn 80 this year...I am already 65 and don't own a vehicle.
The car is only approaching 65k miles, but the body has seen its share of 'wear' that could easily be fixed. I hope to own the Caddy one day! It's a light metallic green with a dark green cloth top, and the green leather driver's seat fits my frame!
The 32v Northstar engine sort of concerns me as I've heard that it is hard to work on, but other than that this is a dream of a car as far as I am concerned!
On the Northstar the camshaft position sensor is on the passenger side end of the rear cylinder head. No where near the oil filter housing. See attached pic.
Do you really mean crankshaft sensors? There are 2 on front of engine....kinda near the oil filter housing.
You do have the Northstar and not the 4.9L engine right?
New Guy here.I owned a 96 Eldorado years ago and loved it.It was stolen.I bought an 03 Mercury Marauder brand new.I drove it for 13 years.I did a lot of modifications to that car,very fast..In 2016 I bought a new Challenger,V6 305HP.I never really adapted to the car and wanted that Caddy ride....I just bought an 02 Eldorado.Love it..It needs some love..I'll be asking questions for sure.Thanks for having me.
