Matt Posted February 19, 2005 Report Share Posted February 19, 2005 I had my eye on this Seville for a long time. It was a friends of the family, stored in a garage and not used much. With 100.000 miles it is in fantastic shape. There are service records for general maintenance that show its care. I wanted this car for a long time and now it's mine. I'v had it for 7 days now and am obsessed with careing for it. It's clean in and out. I love the dark metalic green and the white leather interior. The 4.9 V8 PFI engine is fast and powerfull. I'v been a mechanic for 23 years with a large general equipment rental company and have the place and tools to care for this car. The car has 2 problems . The first is no big deal, I have a place local that will work on the Bose Stereo. I get a CD error when I put in a compact disk and it will not play. I may take it out and look it over my self, I'm not sure. "The second problem is more complicated". The engine idles rough when in drive. If it's in park it idles good 99% of the time. I'v put in a full tank of Mobil Hi Test and a can of Fuel system and injector cleaner.The injectors on this engine are around the sides of the intake manifold. I also sprayed out the goop from the air intake system with sensor safe cleaner. I found a lot of build up in the center of the air intake in the two tubes that stick up under the butterflys. I cleaned it all out to. I have only used up a quarter of the tank of fuel so far with this treatment in it and it is starting to run a bit smother at idle in drive. NOW I NEED TO KNOW WHAT MODEL THIS CAR IS ?? I want to find info from this site but is it a Seville or a STS or a SLS ?? My owners manual package makes no mention of any thing but Seville.. I read something about needing to re set the idle system if the battery is disconnected, mine was for a little bit. Please help me find what model this is so I can use some of the computer diags to look for a idle problem. THANKS MUCH. Matt Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
