    First time Cadillac owner - bad 4.1 engine

    I am the new owner of a near mint condition 1984 Seville with a bad 4.1 motor. I am wanting to find out what other motors will match up to the transmission. I do not want another 4100. Please help me get this beauty back on the road!

    Good morning. Welcome to the Funny Farm !!!!

    I'll move this thread from the non-specific chitchat Lounge down to Engines, 4.1 - - -

    If you get no info in your identical thread up in Seville, the two threads will eventually be merged.

    any engine from the Toronados, Riviera or any front wheel drive caddy from the seventies will work, but your 307 and olds 350 are your best options as to not tear your trans up, the seventies Cadillac engines put out too much torque for the 4 speed aod.
