Car Model and Year

  1. Hello. Quick question for anyone who could let me know... I own a 1997 eldorado sedan cadi. And it was in perfect condition. Only 54,000 miles on it. Someone side swiped my car in the middle of the night. The drivers side has bad damage all the way down. I need to replace the door on the outside. The inside still works. So would a deville 1997 door work? Let me know if you know please.
  2. Hopped in to try and get to work this morning and suddenly the alarm I didn't know this car had started blaring the horn and shut the car off. Tried everything to stop it, ended up disconnecting the battery and when I tried reconnecting it the alarm was still going off. I don't have a factory key fob, only an aftermarket one, which has no alarm button so I'm very confused. Checked all 3 fuses boxes and can't find a fuse for the horn. Does anyone have any idea what could be going on?
  3. 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 ki
  4. The rear suspension setup is very important for a FWD Autocross car. The stiffer the better almost to the point where it starts to make the car over steer. However, I need to find the balance between good handling and streetability because I drive this car 50 miles per day. I want a sports car ride, not a log truck ride. Here's a look at the stock suspension. However, there are a few things about this donor car that make it a rare a desirable find. To be continued.......
  5. I'm trying to swap a ld8 from a 2000 Eldorado esc into my 2002 etc with a l37. I've been looking around forums and have been seeing mixed answers. If I swap the ld8 into my ETC will I experience any issues with the computer acting up? I've been seeing that the drive ratio is different and the computer would have to be calibrated for the ld8? How would I go about doing that?
  6. They said it couldn't be done. Pete at Discount Mufflers in North Little Rock, Arkansas took that as a challenge and used his 30 years of experience as a pipe bender to make it happen. We even up-sized to 3" pipes after the tight bends around the gas tank. The dual catalytic converters and H-pipe will be installed in about a week during a second visit. The fit is tight, but I have driven the car since the installation and there is no rattling of pipes and they do not bump against the underbody when turning or stopping. Note 1: The low spot in the installation as the pipes curve around the
  7. Could use some help/advice on diagnosing an E046 trouble code for a '92 Eldorado with the 4.9 liter engine. I also failed my last smog check because of excessive NOx, btw. I'm thinking the two things are related. E046 is the the 'Left to Right Bank Fueling Difference' that will produce a Service Engine Soon light. My E046 is the single current code but the SES only comes on intermittently. My due diligence of Googling other people's experience with the E046 on this and other forums has been a bit disappointing. Many of the E046 complainers don't seem to use a Factory Service Manual fo
  8. Hey y'all. Fresh meat here. I’m looking for some advice on a 1998 Cadillac Eldorado that is for sale near me for $3500. The vehicle has just over 71000 miles on it, has one of the Northstar V8 engines in it, and actually looks in fairly good shape (see linked image). But, as a poor college student that needs his ramen noodle funds, I’ve done my research to see if there’s a reason for the low price tag on such a neat looking vehicle. And I found it, maybe, and I’ve had some second thoughts. I’ve been reading around on a couple different sites and forums about the vehicle, and a concer
  9. I found a company that can reprogram the PCM in my 02 Eldorado, so now engine mods, swaps, tunes, cams, etc. are viable options. It's going to cost $2400-$2700 at a local shop specializing in the Northstar blown head gasket problem to have my engine repaired and oil leaks fixed depending upon how much I have them do to the car. They recommend upgrading to the head stud kit if I plan to add nitrous or a turbo: otherwise use the oversized bolts and inserts they keep in stock. The 4.4 superchargers are affordable in used condition. If they will bolt up in place of the stock 4.6 intake,

  11. Hello everyone, 96 Cadillac Northstar 4.6L Symptoms high idle and constant revv So I pulled the Intake manifold and coolant started to leak out of the bolt hole(Closest to plug 8) under the intake. Picture included, the leak will stop with the bolt hand tight with the intake off. No Codes. I am wondering is this a head gasket or something else? Would sealant be a bad idea? PS Picture I grabbed from the internet. My car is not this dirty
  12. I want to thank everyone on this forum for the many responses I have received in ONE day regarding my car search. Specifically, I am considering a 1985 Seville (serial numbers over 3000) as a daily driver (perhaps a commute once a week) and otherwise a weekend cruiser and garage beauty. My concern is the HT 4100 and the fact that the Carfax indicates less than 200-300 miles on the car per year. It's a low miler - 50K- and has the original engine. I've learned about using 15w oil, or maybe 20w, or some say only 10w - and most seem to think the coolant tabs aren't needed. I didn't see the

  14. Hi all. I am contemplating letting go of my eldorado. It is a great car. I needed something more suited for my daily driver so I bought something different. I have put alot of hard work into this car to make it up to my standards. It is a 2001 Pearl white ESC. Shale interior 140k miles. Clean title Here is a list of what I have done in the last year New Remy alternator, belt, battery, tensioner. Radiator (had cracks in the inlet tank) replaced coolant. All motor mounts including struts intake gaskets and everything related serviced complete tuneup consisting of remy coil packs delc
  15. No, not that kind of help, more like a psychiatrist....... Yesterday I picked up another Baby Cadillac! 1990 Eldo Biarritz. Triple white. In need of some TLC but basically solid an well taken care of. Originally exported to Saudi Arabia and later shipped to Sweden. Looks nice standing next to my -90 Seville. BTW Is it still possible to get interior part for a 1990 in the US? The left door needs a new inside. White whit black rug insert at the bottom.
  16. Hi all. Hope someone can give me some ideas. Let me start by reminding that the eldos do not have frames around the door windows. If the blower is running I cant close the door right. The window doesn't hit right where it is supposed to. It hits the block toward the front of the window and makes a nasty noise. I have to either shut the car off or shut off the blower. It must be the pressure causes the window to push out when I try to shut the door. It also does it sometimes without even having the car on. It is incredibly annoying and embarassing to have to keep opening and carefully tr
  17. Hi all. My new eldo is so quiet that the little things bug me. Anyway my windows rattle in the doors when they are down. I typically love to drive with the windows all the way down when it is nice, especially being not having frames around the windows. I was wondering if there is a guide track in the door at the front and back of the window like the traditional doors? I know they like to rot on the traditional doors so maybe these have the same issue. Thanks
  18. Not low on coolant. The norm for the last 6 months has been just above halfway on the temp gauge due to crank sensor issues and a check engine light. Also now low on Freon so computer shuts AC off and gives me a text message on the dash.... No problems when driving at any speed above 20 MPH. However, when sitting in a drive thru line, the temp gauge begins to rise. It has not overheated yet, but it had been 3/4 to the red mark (where I either shut it down or start driving ) I listened for the fan motor, but don't hear it running. However it does seem to turn at a slower speed. It it a sim
  19. Hi all. I am looking to part out my 1996 Cadillac Deville gold wreath package. The car has been wonderful to me but the rust has gotten the best of it and the torque convertor is gone. prices are very reasonable. Interior parts are in very good shape. switches are good. Anything you might need just throw me a message and I will let you know if I have it. I also have some parts from my 1996 eldorado, including black sun visors Dual type. roof console(astroroof one) Climate control unit. U1L stereo. and information system unit. Center shifter trim with heated seat switch. plastic. Prices ar
  20. 1969 Cadillac Eldorado - $16800 (Rowlett) condition: excellent 1969 Cadillac Eldorado odometer: 101000 automatic transmission title : clean Up for sale is my classic 1969 Cadillac Eldorado finished in sapphire blue metallic, white vinyl top and blue leather interior. This car is in great condition, inside and out. The car is sitting on 101,000 miles, the last 2,600 or so since 1996. Mechanically this car is excellent. Considering its 4,700 pound curb weight its handling is tight, its acceleration strong and its shifting smooth. It steers straight down the road without wandering a
  21. Hi um ive been having trouble with my beautiful black 96 cadillac eldorado.. one day after coming home from the gym. I was getting ready to leave again but my car immediately shut off after ignition.. this has happened before since ive had battery issues but I fixed that so it came as a surprise.. I cranked it once more and boom I heard a loud knock.. cranked it again and nothin.. the car wouldn't stay on.. I replaced the fuel filter checked the fuel pump psi even the ignition switch which a mechanic swore was the issue.. and wanted to charge me $500 with labor and parts for the ignition switc
  22. Mine is a 95 Cadillac Eldorado has 30,000 miles on it. Clean! one question, my brake lights work fine. But the other day I got stopped by a dumb *smurf* cop who said they were out, keep in mind it was bright as day outside at this time. So I was like ok. When I went into my garage, being it's dark in my garage, my automatic lights turned. I got out of my car and what do you know! My brake lights are on! And when pressed on the brake pedal they get brighter as well. When I backed out of the garage in the daylight of course the automatic lights turned off, but this time I pressed to button for m
  23. 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.
  24. Here's the deal, my 97 northstar has been getting hot and not sure what to do. Replaced the thermostat, did not get a flush kit but drained the system and ran a ton of water through it with a hose. It has been doing ok at highway speeds. I can drive like half an hour on the highway and then come to a stoplight and sit and the temp starts rising and my oil pressure light flashes off and on. Seems to overheat at a a stand still. on the other hand, i started it and let it idle for 30 minutes in the driveway and it was fine. Oil is not milky so I do not think this is related to head gasket proble
  25. It was a car that gave very literal meaning to "crushing the competition." Horsepower drove the 1960s while conspicuous consumption pushed the 1970s to new physical limits. Stand at the front corner of a Cadillac Eldorado and gaze - forever - down its long flanks and you'll get the picture. There's no end in sight and no boundaries that Cadillac wasn't prepared to push.
