I am new to this forum and very new to cadillacs. I was lucky enough to receive a 1986 Fleetwood with a perfect interior and exterior. The trouble is the engine sounds like it will die any day. The Fleetwood is not ready to go to car heaven. I have a 305 engine out of a 88 GM PU and was wonder if the engine mounts are compatible with the Fleetwood. I was also wondering if my tranny should be replaced?
I agree. If this is a RWD Fleetwood, you likely have an Olds 307 in the vehicle--and this would be the engine pulled from an 88. See if the oil fill tube is left of the thermostat. If so, you have an Olds engine, not a Chevy 305. This forum is for HT4100, 4.5, and 4.9 Cadillac V8s so you might want to try the other "5.0 and 5.7L" forum.
