I have a 1980 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham and I'm not sure what kind of engine I have. My dad doesn't think it is an Oldsmobile engine so I'm completely clueless. Any answers would be appreciated.

Either a 368cid 6.0 V8 which is the Cadillac motor, that was standard, or the optional Oldsmobile 5.7 gas V8. Or if you're really unlucky, you have the 5.7 Olds Diesel.

Hello,

A 1980 Fleetwood Brougham would have a 6.0 368 Cadillac built V8 otherwise a 5.7 350 Oldsmobile built diesel V8. It was mentioned that the 4.1 252 Buick built V6 was available mid year.

To Chad: no Oldsmobile built 5.7 350 gas V8 was ever available in the 1980 Fleetwood Brougham.

Thats what I thought but our website (www.cadillacforums.com/cadillac (http://www.cadillacforums.com/cadillac)) listed a gas 350 V8 as an option.

Hi,

The Eldorado and Seville made for California had the 5.7 gas V8 but not the deville, Fleetwood, or Limousine.
