    That is really neat seeing a Cadillac in Russia. I never would've thought that anybody in Russia would be able to own or obtain one, since you can't hardly find them anywhere outside the US or Canada.

    You need to add a cold war era Cadillac to your collection. I know this is a 1991, but the design dates back to 1977.

    Re: From Russia with Love...

    Over 20 years ago that Cadillac use to be a black Volga stopping in front of your house say around 2:00 AM. Then you knew you stepped over some boundary and you are about to relocate to a “cottage” north in Siberia.
    Now these Volga are becoming a collectable item, some people are lowering the roof line, change the interior with modern gauges, update the power train, I have seen once a picture of a black Volga done this way, the cost was around $100K but what a looker.
    , the world is definitely changing!

    Re: From Russia with Love...

    Hey guys! Need your advice one more time

    At last i have changed engine oil but the computer keeps saying "26% oil life" and continues going down. Is there an easy way to reset it to 100% without visiting the service station?

    And another question is what is this thing for and what does the sound it makes mean?

    The oil life indicator has to be reset (is based on a software algorithm and some sensors in the car: ambient temperature, coolant temperature, and engine load). The PCM take in consideration all these and calculates the oil lifetime figure. Say if you drive lots of short trips on very hot or very cold temperatures, you overheat the engine or you floor it all the time and/or haul a trailer the calculated oil life figure will go down faster than when you drive long trips on highways on moderate external temperature and constant speed.
    That vent hole you indicated has a small fan that suck air for the cabin air temperature sensor. Is one of the most (if not THE MOST) common issue with the '98-'03 Seville. The grease dries out and the fan start making noise. Either grease up the fan or change it all together.

    Re: From Russia with Love...

    D_M, First, remove the little grille with a hook made from a paper clip. Be careful - there's a tiny thermistor just inside the duct. Use a low pressure compressed air hose or a can of computer cleaner "air" to blow out the duct to the cabin air temp sensor. If that does not cure the noise, stick your finger in the rubber duct at the end of the dash panel - that duct which couples the dash panel air at the door (window) - and pull the end off the dash. Remove the plastic duct tube. Straight in there's a small hex head screw - loosen it and remove it with a magnet or spring finger tool. Snake out the wiring connector, disconnect, and then wiggle out the sensor. On the board is a small 12V muffin (computer) fan. Remove the sticky tape over the fan blade hub and expose the axle and C-clip retainer. Place a drop of oil (synthetic, if possible) on the axle and spin the fan a few times. Replace the sticky tape or another substitute. Replace everything in reverse.

    Two years ago there was a thread, with pictures, by iametarq on this procedure.

    The Oil Life Monitor can be reset by calling up the OLM in the message line and hold the INFO RESET button down for 5 seconds.

    (The knob for instrument light intensity will push in and lock flush with the light switch.................)

    Re: From Russia with Love...

    Thanks N*caddy!!!

    I understand about the grease and the fan. And thank you for explaining the working logistics of the oil life indicator but how do u recommend to reset it exactly? Is there any easy way to reset it by myself alone, maybe with some simple technical supply, or the car needs to be taken to the gm service station for some special processing?
