  1. Looked around for a month for a used tire changer. No real luck......used ones are overpriced, discontinued or ready for the scrap heap. Also the newer units can do the larger tires. Great bang for the $. A new Derek Weaver tire changer. Video is not me. But same unit.

  2. Thanks. Fuel is a sore subject... a few unique problems to these Caddys is the lack of manufacturers of parts. For my Seville parts are nearly impossible to find, and have been for a long time now. They are not like Chevys, Fords, and Chryslers that you could get most parts for.

  3. Not sure what they did to check your alternator out, but assuming they checked to ensure it is charging properly, then the problem may be that the connection to the circuit to drive the light is faulty? Here is my thinking: If we think the alternator output is dropping as the engine revs (opposite of what one might expect), then we need to check to see if that is true or not. If it is true, then look for faulty connections, check the alternator output, and check the drive belt is not slipping. If it is not true, and the output is fine, then we need to think about why the warning light is blinking, and check that circuit.

  4. If you have a vacuum actuated release you can disregard my last post. In that post i was thinking the 97 Deville had the electric release setup like the 98. The most common problem in the vacuum system release is the shift selector vacuum switch which was usually located on the steering column. Follow the hose that is attached to the vacuum servo at the p-brake assembly, it should go to a vacuum switch mounted on the column or wherever. The ports in the switches don't always align properly preventing the vacuum servo from getting vacuum. I haven't had a 97 column down but the components should be the same. They may have even used the ignition switch on the column to supply power to a vacuum switch when the vehicle is shifted out of park, but there has to be some kind of a vacuum switch at the other end of that hose.
