That's for to protect Cadillac from lawsuits. If you're not a idiot i pull my 5,000 lb travel trailer from ms to. Phoenix every year. I go the southern route thru el Paso so not many hills. I drive 60 mph or so and i keep tranny in 3rd gear. My car has 114,000 miles. The transmission holds a massive 17.5 quarts of oil that's almost 3 times more than most vehicles
I installed a hitch on my 02 Eldorado etc and the mounting holes were already there. I know cars unibody but if your not a idiot you can pull a 5,000 pound travel trailer if you towed alot. Ive never had a problem
30+ year old engine. I don't think anyone here has tackled the job.
These guys seem to know the 4.9 pretty well. About 2/3 down the page they talk about the liners. Maybe a email to them will help figure out some gaskets.
Some '4.9L full block gasket sets' seem to have them. But not certain.
Good morning Mike. I've been searching in the forum about rich cold start. I have a 1993 Cadillac deville 4.9 v8. I've done maintenance. full tune up. Plugs, wires, cap and rotor. New EGR, and new PCV valve. Throttle body cleaned and air intakes (those were bad) checked the timing yesterday (at 24 degrees) don't know why but I'll bring it down. Cold start rough... too much fuel. Runs perfect after warm. Any suggestions about the rich cold start? Any info it would be much appreciated. thank you.
I live in Terre Haute, IN. Do you know much about 4.5 Liter engine? I have a 1988 Fleetwood (FWD)... I am needing to find someone to do some work on it.
