cmoresps Posted March 5, 2009 Report Share Posted March 5, 2009 I have a 96 Deville, car has run flawlessly for several years (150k miles). Within the past few months I started noticing an electrical smell, when running but could never find it. Car kept running perfectly, then one day the smell got real strong when I got home. I went back out to start an hour later only to find out it wouldnt start (kept backfiring through the carb or intake and motor wouldnt cath). So, I traced the issue to the positive that runs to the starter, apparenetly the daggon plastic shething around the wire wasnt quite enough, grounded out on the block, causing the sheathing to melt off but more importantly ith melted part of the daggon intake manifold! So here's my question, has anyone ever run into this, if the intake is fowled can it cause the car to not start? AFter the intake is off, how much of a pain in the arse is it to get the starter out?
