  1. Looking for a abs module harness and block for a 1996 cadillac seville SLS or STS... Even an entire engine harness.... I need to save a really nice 96 and can't seem to find the harness... any info would be great... my email is fivepointohman@hotmail.com
  2. I did replace it with a remanufactured pump... I cleaned the pulleys clean of oil and installed a new belt. I will R&R with a new pump then this weekend.
  3. I replaced my pump today due to a bad bearing in the pump on my 96 seville sls.. After I replaced it with a new unit, the steering was completly gone.. I would rev up the motor and it would get better, at idle nothing... After turning the wheel back and forth for hours, and driving it with some WOT, it compeletly lost power steering.. Could I have damaged the rack or could it just be a bad pump? I am completly out of ideas.. before the pump replacement steering was completly normal and free...
  4. I need an ABS pump / module wiring harness for a 1996 seville sls or sts and i believe a 1996 deville works too... Any help would be great! Thanks.
  5. Agreed it's everyones opinion..... I have bypassed the heater hoses on both my cadillac and my mercedes and have had no issues ever with better results in performance than before... So It's a matter of opinion.... No big deal...
  6. The coolant bypass is there to act as a choke, like in our older carburated cars. It heats the incoming air when it it cold out... Since I drive my car only in the summer i dont need to heat the in coming air, plus hot air means less power and detination... So it is a plus... some also say it is used to looses deposits in the throttle body, I clean mine constantly so it's not an issue. Yea I have to take a photo of it completely on there... All the components were cleaned at the shop with a acid dip, but I painted them all up afterwards... the intake gaskets were beyond worthless, the gasket material was lower then the surrounding framework of the gasket itself so meaning there was no gasket... they car ran strong anyways, but outside dirt oil and debris sealed up the runners.
  7. Also, I love the fact that with the coolant bypass modification done to the throttle body you can actually touch the throttle body when the engine is hot and the incoming charge of air is nice and cool and not super heated...
  8. Agreed.... that hydro lock is exactly why i didnt clean it on the car etc... I had it dipped and heat treated at the shop and left it off for a week, so it was perfectly dry.... I am happy with the job.... Here are some pics! http://c2.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images0...3041a95e651.jpg
  9. Cool welcome aboard, introduce yourself, what do you do for a living? I am sorry for the delay on reporting back on the head gasket leak issue on the 2000 northstar engine at 71000 miles. I replaced the water pump cover gasket, changed the Dex Cool and added 3 GM cooling system seal tabs to cooling system. The engine now has another 1000 miles on it with no visible coolant leaks or weeping from the head gasket. I also replaced the temp sensor to the left of the steering column behind the small grill that has the small fan that was making the noise when cold. I used Cadillac parts. Thanks again for all of your input. I am a retired mechanical eng. and have had a life long auto hobby. Is that temp sensor on the back of the head near the firewall under the EGR valve?

  11. So I went ahead and took my manifold off to clean out the ever so discusting carbon and oil biuld up... it was amazing, my map sensor port was almost totally sealed, along with the FPR port.... The gaskets were leaking incredibly as I saw a trail of carbon and fuel leaking around the seals and into the valley. So needless to say 80 dollars later I had the the entire intake throttle body and EGR spacer completly acid dipped and blasted... Looks amazing now and oh so clean! put it together with all new gaskets and car fired up strong and throttle response is amazing! Now here is the info I was told at my local engine dino and biulder... He asked what fuel octane i was using.. I was using 93... He told me that was alot of the cause as to why it got this nasty... the 93 doesnt burn quick enough and thus we have loads of deposits. he recommends 89 max and even 87 for cleanest operation and performance. he states 93 looses HP. I played devils avocate with the whole knocking issues and valve damage from low octane , he said not a issue the ecm will adjust timing as needed... he also says my CAT is probably completly clogged with deposits as my intake was. makes sense as my exhaust smells as though there is no converter.. NO codes however... Either way a high flow cat was ordered weeks ago so it's not really an issue.. my intake valves looks spotless with literally no deposits... I wonder about the exhaust side... So what does everyone think of this?
  12. Will do.... I take it your just living with it for now and or did the fluid change resolve it?
  13. Quick question? is there a shiftt solenoid for reverse... The car before i stored it for the winter started to have a delay in reverse engaugement.... the drive solenoids have been replaced. no codes. trans has 129K original.
  14. So I seem to have developed a new problem with my 96 sls as my car has been sitting for the winter months. my headlights wont come on... when I put the car in drive the day time lights wont come on, and when I turn them on manually everything but the headlights come on, the highbeams switch on and off fine... checked the relay and fuse all ok... Along with that suddenly the battery has been dieing. what could be the cause of this?
  15. I have been thinking about doing this also I just did my first headgasket and timesert with the engine in the car back in January. I would have no problem doing it again. I also would love to find a deal on another one with a blown h/g. I would love to hear more about doing the HG in the car as I would like to repair mine the same way over the remaining winter months as the car is just sitting... what were the major obsticles?
  16. Well your going to have to get into the transmission but its probably just the 3-4 shift solenoid, which probably means you need both of them... 25 dollar item, but you have to drop the valve body in the car....
  17. Yes I would say that is the best thing to do in this case...
  18. Well the stang actually grouded the distributor and module via the engine inself. When I looked at my 96 caddy I seen there was a black wire within the hareness which by standards should be a ground... for this car to be spiking 16+ volts something is either damaging the regulator and or the PCM is asking the regulator to open up thinking there is a crazy load...
  19. yes Agreed, I understand that he has ttwo new alternators, but what i was saying is, if the ground is bad to the alternator / regulator side then the regulator will try and pull a ground from the nearest point it can thus overheating the regulator and blowing it up.. I had this issue with my Mustang GT and the ignition module not grounding and blowing up modules 10 at a time... But next time it says that leave the car on and test the battery voltage with the car on to verify it is a high voltage condition...
  20. I understand your grief. A newer vehicle, however, is only a temporary solution (if that). Sooner or later the newer ride will need service. If by that time you haven't located a competent servicer you will only begin to revisit the current frustrations. I'd respectfully suggest you do some serious networking and find that servicer before you make a move. My guy is an independent who spent ten years at a Cadillac dealership before he opened his own shop. All his technicians have certificates on the wall indicating which general classes they've completed (computerized engine management, air conditioning, etc.). It's an impressive array. Oh, and the bathroom is clean; that can be a valuable hint. No, I don't know why... but it works (although I suspect it means if he respects his own excrement, he'll respect yours). Regards, Warren Honestly your problem may be a bad ground to the voltage regulator causing it to short out and and allowing high voltage to pass through it. This bad ground would kill the interal voltage regualtor pretty much quickly and thus teh problem returns constantly... Verify that You have a good ground to the regulator on the alternator.. The only way to get high voltage is for it to come out of the alternator... Also verify that you actually are getting high voltage but putting a volt meter on the battery.. goodluck!
  21. Thanks but that didnt work out at all.. SO my next question is A. for now is it ok to drive the car starting in second or will I be hurting the tranny? Also do they sell the wiring harness that goes to the box itself? I may want to replace it just for giggles...
  22. Nothing was done to the car lately at all other than a flush and refill of the coolant. yes the ABS motor was hosed down, but the connector is dry with no signs of corrosion.. Fuses all look good, I tested each circuit with a volt meter.. all checked out ok as far as i can tell. I found out the TC0061 is the TC/ABS pump fail... which makes sense as both of them are coming up with issues. So looks like a new ABS block is in order.. found one on Ebay for 400 bucks new.. just looks like another random part failure. Any other suggestions would be great! Thanks for all your help so far guys! Well I have decieded to change this freekin ABS Module.. i can get one for 150 bucks locally used... Has anyone run into any issues with the uninstall and install?
  23. Not for nothing, but I got that code today in my 96 seville.. all it was, was the connectoring going to the tranny needed to be reseated.. gone since then... check all your connectors.. Cadillac dropped the ball in the connector reliabilty dept. good luck!
