nope never a hg issue ever
we put 125k on the car before the idiots at pennzoil didnt put more than 5 qrts in it. We drove the car for about 1K miles after the change i had the car and it threw a rod no oil light nothing.
93-94 are the worst years for hg, the diff intakei think helps with the 95.
i learned to drive on my dads 93 etc but i mainly drove my moms car cuz she was always home dad had to work. moms 96 deville and it was ALWAYS floaty to me
theres alot of differences in the suspension on 93-95s too
no ciws (or whatever its called)
Automobile(s): 1992 Town Car Cartier & 2014 Accord LX MTX
Re: STS/SLS v. ETC/Eldorado v. Mark VIII
Oh I'm not saying it's not floaty to you, you're used to the tigher feeling in the Eldorados, but I've driven the old style of Brougham, and the '90s Town Cars, and my deVille feels like an M5 compared to those, and I'm sure the '96 feels about the same as my '92. But my '92 has the standard passive struts and no RSS or ICCS like the '96, which has the road sensing struts, (but not the continuously variable ones like the '96 Concours and your ETC have). So maybe your mom's RSS struts have gone bad, causing the floating feeling, but I'd assume that those would make the ride tigher than my '92 with the simple passive struts. But I'm sure the '96's floating feeling is nothing compared with your '74 Eldorado's ride.
So out of all the OBDI Northstars, the '95 is best?
