67coupedeville Posted July 23, 2005 Report Share Posted July 23, 2005 So my plan was to pick up my Eldorado from the farm tommorow morning and work on a few things. Plans changed quickly, before I knew it I was packing ATF, Engine oil, air tank, VIN number from the Eldo on a piece of paper and I was going down to get a 24hr permit. My buddy works at the local Cadillac dealer and I need a transmission (yea that's a big ticket item), and a fuel rail recall at the least done. He asked if I can leave it there until the parts came in and tranny came in and it was fine. So tonight Scotty an I ran out to the farm, it was getting dark fast, we topped up the engine oil, topped up the tranny oil, filled the one tire with air, filled it up with gas and we were on our way in to town. There was a large amount of carbon build up in the engine, but driving for 20 kms, in second, going in between 60 km/h and 90 km/h, that engine made no noise when I got back to town. Thanks Guru. So I had to take it for a quick wash of course, then went to my other buddy's house to show off the big unit. And on the way there there is this Ford Contour riding my *smurf* crazy style. I was in no mood to play any games since I had no insurance on the car with the 24hr permit so I pulled into my buddy's driveway. All of a sudden a plain clothed police officer steps out of the Contour and asks for licence and registration, the tags are out of date (I had the old licence plate off of the LHS on it). Luckly I had my 24hr permit right handy and I sent her packing lol...She was none too nice. Took my buddy for a quick drive in it and he's more excited for me to get it running than I think I am...nahh can't be . So far everything seems to run perfect on the car (other than the tranny) and the car is going to my Scotty's service bay at the Cadillac dealership, what more could a guy ask for? All around I am completly impressed with the car, and it can only go up from here. Thanks Caddyinfo! Spence Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
