    engine pinging???

    hey all i just bought my second cadillac, this one is a 95 sedn deville with 101k miles on it. the motor and body are in excellent condition I mean excellent!! bought from a retired vet. I did my regular changes for my records oil, trans, anti freeze, gas filter, etc.. I just put in a full tank yesterday morning premium mind you at almost $4.00 a gallon ok $3.99. this morning i headed to the xway when i heard off a red line the motor being toping off the line? did I do something wrong? has anyone ever experience this mystery noise. how can i get rid off it. this car is way to classy to be having this noise off the motor!!

    any and all comments apprciated!! i need to take care of this ASAP...

    Joel

    "i headed to the xway when i heard off a red line the motor being toping off the line?"

    Let's see:
    I was traveling to the freeway. As I accelerated, from a red light, I heard the motor beginning to tap.

    This would be a rarely heard dialect of Ebonics. We should all feel grateful to have heard it here.

    The problem is we read it too often. Some days I just don't volunteer!

    SRTATEU,

    Some people are not good with their words or with typing...we realize that. But asking for help in the most intelligible and NICE way is always justified. Why do you think the members of this board who did help a lot of people like you to save some bucks would be willing to help you when you call other fellow members clowns? Please understand you do not do us a favor when you ask for advice, but we rather do a favor trying to help you.

    Dude, I understood everything else in the post except that one sentence and that was the most important one. I read typos all the time and usually can figure them out. When I see red line I think wide open throttle. Red line and Cadillac usually don't go in the same sentence. Carnut made a valiant attempt at translation but I wan't sure that it was correct.

    For pinging off the line I would say check the EGR tubes in the throttle body or the EGR itself, is the car getting too hot? do the fans work? Is it taking off in 2nd gear? does it run good otherwise? It could be carboned up if an old duffer was driving it. In that case take her for some hard rides and check out the red line.
