Grr, my mother is pissing me the hell off.
Since i sorta gave her the SLS as a christmas present (its mine, its hers, whosever it is), the car isnt behaving at all. I went to go check the oil in the cars, i see the SLS is low 2 quarts. The motor NEVER burned oil before the fact, a half quart in a couple of tousand miles (2).

I start the car, figuring ill take it to the store and back, i get in, car is running like shit, i mean, literially, rough running. I take it up to 6500, let it do a WOT shift, car is running A-OK. I told her to drive the car one day, i ask her when the last time she went more than half throttle, she said never.


How do you convince a almost 50 year old woman that used to own a 454 chevelle (want to guess what she did) that the cadillac is not to be babied.

Amen, my mom drives 55MPH everywhere she goes. And to think that she used to be a street racer in a 64 Ford Galaxy 500 with a 390 and a 4 speed :lildevil:.

Try talking to the car, they tend to have more sense than women.I DO talk to my car.
The vic i always tell her go faster and stop bitching and making noises she never made before.

The cadillac i have to ask nicely to stop making noise, to stop running rough, to not blow a headgasket (although im timeserted), to not get mad at me and keep the beeper going off, and provide me with fun.

I have the strut brace sitting in my garage, but i am punishing the cadillac for busting another PCM right now and a CKP and not giving it a treat.

Yeah, i DO talk to my cars.

The scary thing is, my mom has the chevy 305/350/396/427/454 mentality, she understands about nothing with newer engines.

Scary enough, she knows how to rebuild a 5.7 ford, i guess her old 2 door grand marq can do that.

The only thing you could do for a 390 Ford was two aspirins and lots of rest. Pure lead sled.

WTF is wrong with you?
Yes take it that way!

Lets think about this and disassemble your thought process and your posts.

Cadillac sold more than 10K cars a year. Are we good with that?

I would say the from 1996 to 1999 the average age of a Caddy driver was much older than than it is today. Can we agree on that?

The average Northstar customer does not WOT the car that often. They pay us to do that.

10K+ 96 to 99 Cadillac's on the road that don't have your symptoms. Can we agree on that?

So what is the malfunction?

The crank sensors in a 93 to 99 are two wire AC generators that have a very low failure rate. Can we agree on that or do you need proof?

The PCM's are know to have many fail save surge protectors that keep it protected. Again this is a very low failure rate on the PCM's Can we agree on that?

Have you ever hammered on the car before it reached operating temp?

Have you looked for a loose wire or ground cables?

Maybe when you WOT the car it tugs on a wire or cable.

Maybe the car has so much more power than a F.O.R.D. that you bust every time you nail it. This causes your brain to malfunction and you don't realize that the car is still a not right.

The reason I asked about the operating temp is to get a feel for your intelligence.

AJ, it was mainly the oil cumsumption, but now that i did a little searching, i read about the dipstick BS and it not necessarly being accurate, and i messed up.


Honestly, the car runs, it runs right, AJ i give up on the thing. If it breaks, let my dad deal with it. He created the peice of shit, he can keep it running.



The car runs fine now, who gives a flying ****.


I am just pissed off that she cant beat on it.

Ill end up seafoaming it tomorrow probobly, this should get interesting.

And AJ, i DONT deny the car is ****ed up. I knew this before i even got the damn car to be honest. The whole reason i got the car is a return of a favor from my dad.

It was referred to as a F.O.R.D.
Initials not a word.

find me a 4.6L DOHC engine that can out run me. Find me a Snake car and I will wipe it up. Oh wait I did with my old PCM. find me a 4.6L DOHC car or truck with a Blower and after I install mine I will smoke it then.
Oh wait We will see that also.


BTW I just fixed a Muskrat yesterday. It was hit hard in the Right front. It is a drop top, so it has bracing. The car so twisted. I could pull it straight by hand. The body shop guy said when it was on the frame rack it pulled super easy. THIS IS NOT CHOICE.
