Ok so here is my problem everyone. I have a 1991 Eldorado touring coupe. Recently after driving I stopped to get gas, attempted to start the car and nothing. After trying to start it the in car diagnostic system said the battery was at 11.9. I left, and came back after 40 minutes and it started right up, and the battery read normal again. Now when ever I drive it and turn it off i have to wait at least 45 minutes before starting it up, or it wont start. Everything else inside the car works, stereo, subs, windows etc. Needless to say this is extremely inconvenient, especially with kids in the car. The only code that pops up is E046, left to right fuel imbalance (paraphrased). It come on intermittently, and did not come on the first time this happened. I also notice a ticking noise from the cap and rotor area, so im thinking of replacing that. Can a bad cap and rotor cause that? Just for a background I recently got all motor mounts replaced, and a new fuel pump. When they put the new mounts on they split the hose that connect to the ac (r12). I had them remove it and repair it, and all this started while the hose was removed.They fixed it and put it back on but forgot to plug the compressor back up. I also had to tighten clamps on a fuel line in the back to stop it from leaking fuel. I am new to all this but absolutely love my Eldo, and plan to never get rid of it. I am also a working man who only knows a small amount about cars. Please help me guys so I dont blow my savings dealing with these crooked mechanics in my area.
I hope I am posting in the right spot. I have a 1997 Eldorado ETC, 108K miles. It had a crack in the radiator upper right side. I replaced the radiator and tstat, but, its still overheating after about 15 miles. I have flushed the block and new radiator, cooling fans work, pass over not plugged. I have run it with and with out tstat. I am at wits end. All I can come up with is the heater core (which shows on signs of leakage) It has also developed a good miss, I think I need to replace a couple coils, no biggie, unless it is related to this. Any help or advise is GREATLY appreciated.
