  1. Roc.....The guy sez the hose is brittle. .I suggested working from the canister back to a good not brittle place on the plastic line. Warming the end with a heat gun and inserting a braSS union and going rubber hose to the canister. He says it carries no fuel. He hasnt came here as I suggested and no more posts on the FB Cadillac Style group from him. Looks like a easy cobb fix too!
  2. A fella with a 91? deville has a broken plastic line to vapor canister. Whats the best way to repair as it sez flammable, not repairable etc. Books shows it to be a vapor line and he sez no fuel running out of ti. I suggested using brass unions and spring clamps to repair. Thoughts or comments? Book canister diagram is too large to attach. Note the broken vent line way down under the PS pulley.
  3. BTW............Have you checked the timing? If hi-miles the timing chain is stretched a bit and could effect timing thus the lag at accel. tip- in. Timing retarded could cause the tip-in stumble/lag. Cheap and FREE look see!
  4. After living in So. Fla. for 10 years and now back in NY I can recommend the windsheild shade/sun blockers and use them in all my cars! I remember 80s GM cars plastic panels crumbling to dust at the slightest touch! My 93 Deville came up from life in Fla. but was garage kept so the interior was perfect. The filler panels not so much but I repainted them and she looks fine!
  5. What did you find out about those parts? Did you get the new alternator installed yet?
  6. The gaskets are gonna be a tough find. Try or send the owner Lon a PM. He might know. Glove box lock hmmmm....gonna have to do a e-bay search or your local parts yard. But prob. not too many Caddys in the parts yards where your at.
  7. Heres the recommended NEW 120 amp alternator. GM part #s 10463121, 10463122, 10463545, 10463546, 1101490, 1101519, 7942 $102.xx US
  8. Its got 106k miles now. I bought it in Dec. 4k Can. $ huh? 4.5 engine? Not too bad as long as its clean and not a rustbucket
  9. BTW: How much does he want for the car? I paid $3000 for my 93 Deville 91k miles not a scratch or wear anywhere! The guy had it for sale for a YEAR and wanted $5000 !
  10. No! But it dont do it that often and the tranny shifts fine so I figure its just gettin old. But its been back and forth to Fla. twice, did a NY to Maine, jersey and back to NY. I put almost 15k miles on it in 10 months! Just do your homework before u whip out the ca$h money as old Caddy buyer with CA$H money are sorta few and far between and its a buyers market with them IMO! Now If was a Chevy Malibu or similar they sell quick for big money with a lot of excuses! They aRE a different story!
  11. Maybe if you feel "lurching" when stopped and in gear maybe the converter is locking and unlocking at idle in gear? To rule out the ABS pull the main ABS fuse under the hood or fuse center. If lurching is gone then a $6 dollar brake switch is what I would try next. Did U get the codes? My old girl lurches sometimes in gear too. I figure old age but she runs like a watch!
