    Mailbag: fewest words category

    my go to guess on misfire is always fuel pressure regulator. the longer answer is check the codes snd go down the diagnostic tree - fuel, air, spark and see what is “amiss”

    If you were on a Cadillac FB group, all of the members would immediately parrot: Head Gasket Because it's cool to press the panic button and to ignore actual diagnostics.
  5. Keep in mind that we just left the summer temperatures. High temps cause higher system pressures. Some leaks only happen when the system pressure reaches a specific pressure, say for example 14 psi, if the system doesnt reach 14 psi, there will be no coolant leak. Leak points to be examined are: Radiator end tanks, look for white residue where the tanks attach and for cracking The radiator itself, where the horrizonal tubes attach to the side tanks Crossover seals Waterpump seal and body o-ring Tank may be cracked Radiator cap releasing lower than rated pressure Hose clamps Coolant pipes at back of engine Thermostat seal and cover leaks Remember if you smell coolant that is a pressure leak. Coolant under pressure vaporizes when it hits atmospheric pressure, you won't see a leak you will smell a leak
  6. The leak seems to have stopped. Just so we are all on the same page- All I have done thus far is re-filled the coolant that I had lost. I have not put in any seal tabs yet. This has me stumped as to why I was missing coolant and now show no indication of a leak. I'm smart enough to leave well enough alone and won't mess with it till it gives me signs again but I just find it really strange. Anyway, thank you for the advice.

  11. I would of thought someone would have chimed in on this. Anyway, here is a link that has the codes..
  12. First of all, I know the number 1 in front of a code means it's the history codes. So, is that something I should clear or look into? I'm trying to understand my codes...maybe someone can 5-102 4-161 8-185 13-39 26-111 36-101
  13. Its done . Learning by doing.... :-)

    Battery voltage swings

    I believe if it stays above 15v or below ~8.6v it sets the "SERVICE CHARGING SYSTEM" message. my car rides at 13.0v and i would not be concerned if its at 14.5 or even 15 for a few moments, but if it stays high or low for more than a few minutes i'd be concerned.

  17. the 05 srx is back on the road, and flagship one delivered on their warranty. i still don't feel comfortable with the ECM failing within 1 1/2 years. does gm continue mounting ecms on the engine? the heat may be culpable.

    Paint Code - Aztec Red?

    Richard, I'm told the paint code is on the bottom side of the spare tire cover. Hmmm. Yes, I've also heard of the color being known as Torch Red. THANKS

    68 cadillac Eldorado

    video on a 68 Eldorado by a fan. It apparently is for sale but I enjoyed the enthusiast description.
  22. I have a 2002 Collector's Edition Eldorado that's red. I need the paint code. Does anyone know what it is? I don't have the car with me and can't check it, but I need the code. THANKS.
  23. Bet it is. Just remember not to use too much. Will cause bigger problems

  25. so i returned the ECM back to flaghsip one. they say it's dead. still waiting two weeks for a new one. their service seems a bit flaky. they say out of courtesy they'll re[lace the unit, but the lifetime warranty is over. their unit only lasted 1 1/2 years.
  26. The cooling supplement tablets do a terrific job of stopping nuisance leaks, I have found the tablet material caked around the crossover seals. Here is a photo of tablet material coagulation. You may have slowed the leak with it. Here is also a photo of damaged seals, these seals about 45K miles on them
