  1. Thank you for your input. I suppose a intermittent loss of crank signal could be a possibility
  2. Been there done that. If you see it you have to grab it. Either crusher or someone else will demolish them. Good luck
  3. Hi All. I have been driving my Seville daily this year and occasionally notice a hiccup on startup. When you try to start the car it will chug like it is going to start. I let off the key but engine did not start. It then takes more than normal cranks to fire it. Sometimes it will almost pop through the intake when it happens. Once engine is running it runs flawless. Fuel is always non ethanol premium fuel. Fuel mileage is excellent at 22mpg. About 250 miles per week travel. Fuel pump and filter are fairly new. OE Delco units. I change the filter annually. Problem seems to occur after sitting for a few hours, but not when started in the morning (first start). I was leaning toward maybe fuel leaking down... Would I be in the right direction with the fuel pressure regulator? Or something else. I am sure this has been discussed. Thanks for reading
  4. Thats totally worth it rather than having repeat failures.
  5. I am sure this will be debated, but here is what I can help with. What is the average outside temp when it is showing around 210? This plays a factor. If age of coolant is unknown it needs to be changed asap. My 2 run 196 all day long. Unless I am sitting hot in traffic, (rarely) A few important things to check. Water pump tensioner. This is a big one. Driver side of the engine just below the black bracket next to the cam cover. Inspect the small belt. Move the tensioner with a 1/4 ratchet. If it does not move easily I would replace it and the belt. Poor belt tension makes the pump slip under load. If you want to replace the thermostat it is cake. It is located on the water pump housing. 2 bolts hold the steel housing onto the water pump housing. Just follow the hose on the driver side. It bears mentioning to have a smell of the coolant surge tank. If it smells anything like exhaust you may have bigger issues, but from what you are saying I am not even going to entertain that yet. As for the coolant, there again if unknown age, condition, mix, etc... Just drain it out and put a proper mix of premixed antifreeze, (easy), or antifreeze mixed 50:50 with distilled water. The coolant is supposed to be Dexcool. They are sold straight or diluted. I run Global in my Deville. I change mine every 2 years regardless of what coolant I run. I have done it for years and have been trouble free
  6. Does it exhaust only, or inflate as well? It is normal for it to exhaust like a minute after shutdown
  7. My Seville had the same whistle issue. Part is cake to replace other than the fact it is between the pump and back of the intake. I got lucky I found a used one. Any Northstar from 92-99 should work fine. I could not find a listing for the valve itself. Maybe pop it out and clean the rubber sealing area. That used to drive me insane. I will try and find my pics of it. It has been some years since I pulled one. It just pops out but has to be done just right. About same miles as mine. Just hit 131000. PM'd you my Email
  8. Nice. Pics please. Honestly I do not see much for our Seville's. My Seville is a 97 as well. My only complaint is that it is not as roomy as my Deville. But that's why I have both lol. Seville is sporty. Deville is comfy
  9. Hello. Were common on the 2000+ engines but not on the 90s. On the 90s there is 2 gaskets. 1 between the MAF and TB, One between TB and Intake I just bought a set for my 1997 Deville just because I want to check the TB and EGR. Fel Pro 61113 is between spacer and intake. Like an o ring Fel Pro 61111 is between Throttle Body and spacer. Gasket
  10. Sounds like you have your hands full. Makes me recommend checking the plugs to the rear hub assemblies. The plug sits between the Air shock and the back of the hub. Last resort if all checks good is to remove and re seat the plug at the EBTCM. I would not trust the key issue if the code is still current. I would have it bypassed if not interested in repairing the wiring or ignition cylinder. All that needs to be done is to cut the wires under the column and install a resistor that matches your pellet resistance between the 2 wires. The system will be happy and always see the proper resistance. There is tons of info on the web regarding it.
  11. I am assuming power lock actuator is not working... What does the inside door handle feel like? I wish I could see it in person, have dealt with so many
  12. Ok a few things here. Did you check the reading with that RAP relay pulled? Being it is shared with that BODY 2 FUSE. If you can go to the CCM and feel it. (Warm) when system is asleep. I would be removing, cleaning, and reinstalling the Ground(s) to the CCM. A poor ground will surely cause weird issues. Unplug each plug to the CCM and inspect them. Make sure the pins are completely intact, clean, and not burnt
  13. It almost sounds like too high of pressure at one time. Maybe someone put the wrong fluid in it at one time and it affected the seals. I will be honest in that out of all of these Caddys of this generation I have never had a rack problem. I better go knock on some wood lol
