Hello all, I am using my wife’s license plate as she is from BMW country. Within the last couple of months we purchased two 93 eldorados. One 4.9 and the other a 4.6 northstar. Both were someones headaches. But as luck would have it the fixes for both were somewhat simple. At least so far. The northstar would only run ten minutes and shut down.. That was because the seller only had a few drops of gas in the tank. After filling it up it continues to run and run (three months now) and I love it. My wife was getting jealous and wanted one of her own, so kept an eye on craigs list. We found on that was overheating but ran good. Turns out that the thermostat was stuck and the problems seem to have gone away.. After replacing a couple of front door speakers the car is much to her liking. I did the homework and reaped the rewards. Much of the homework included reviewing the postings here. Thanks for the many great tips and ideas.
