1984 Eldorado oil filter housing


Recommended Posts


The 1984 Eldorado had either an HT4100 or a 5.7 liter Olds diesel. Either should be easy to find at recycling yards. The oil filter adapter should be available from any engine that isn't for sale as a running replacement motor, which is to say, just about any of them.

I know a guy on another board that just took one of those engines out this week. Want me to ask him for that part or do you think you can locate one locally?

Sorry, I forgot to get back to you. I will not need that part after all as I have a second Biarritz which I was planning to swap motors after the summer. The motor in my convertible has bad compression along with o ring problems. So instead of paying someone the labor to change the housing I went ahead and scheduled swapping the 85' motor with the old 84" motor. These 4100's were not the best motors GM made as I'm sure you well know and I was told that 1 out of 5 will develop problems over time.

Thx again for looking into that for me.

Be sure to use the bars leaks cooling system supplement or the GM sealer pellets available at the dealer. It was mandatory with the 4.1/4.5/4.9 family of engines.
