ok so i just bought this cadillac and i already love it even though it has a ton of problems. to start off, the dash says check engine, check air bag, check coolant level, and service the A/C system. the check engine light is throwing codes: P1032, P0741, P0174, P0155, P0030, P1031. also the gas gauge doesnt work, the majority of the time it stays at completely full no matter what. The coolant seems to be going fast, but my oil isnt milky. the running temperature of the engine is usually exactly half way. for the electrical problems: sometimes the speakers sound blown but they arent, passenger power mirror doesnt move, entire drivers seat doesnt work (doesnt move and no heated seat but the seatbelt indicator works) the steering wheel adjustment does not work, when i press the unlock button on drivers door, only the drivers door will unlock and lock. only drivers window goes up and down. the lights on the buttons on the other doors are not lit up. all fuses seem to be fine. exhaust tip is wet and when i touched the inside with my finger my finger was all black. apparently it would burn through oil pretty quick, previous owner rarely got oil changes. my horn works and steering wheel controls work. defrosters work. i noticed that the heat has virtually no air flow, its as if i had it on the lowest setting when i have it on the highest. I think all these problems are linked to one thing but i do not know what it is, please help. i want to restore this cadillac, not sell it to a junk yard.
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.
