    Re: Anyone Here from New England?

    Hey you new englanders! do any of you know a reliable non-dealership caddie mechanic who won't charge me an arm and a leg to fix stuff?

    I've been chasing a rough idle now for several months with no luck. I'm about at the end of my rope and am very nearly ready to call it quits and give it to someone to fix it... but the thought ot handing it over to a dealership scares me.

    let me know your thoughts! I'm in the Boston area, but will go pretty far to get this resolved.

    thanks!

    I'm immediatly gonna call an IAC valve problem :-D
    had a horrible idle problem with my Catera, dealer said it was the IAC valve, so i did as much research as i could (theres not much info on them!), and rebuild it myself...it idles fine now :-D
    I'm not sure about with your engine, but if you can tell me if the engine in your car has the IAC valve i could help ya out (you could EASILY rebuild it yourself....that is, assuming you own a flathead screw driver and one or two hex-wrenches :-D

    Go see my "me=moron" post in North* tech info..

    Put simply, I changed my plugs and it fixed it.. duh

    Thanks for the offer though! Now - all that's left is to change out my struts.. fix my BCM and track down the frickin creaky springs I have in the rear end, and the car will be just as good as new

    Re: Anyone Here from New England?

    Work on the caddy starts monday. My goal is to take the hood and fender off, bend out the apron, but fender and hood back on. Tuesdays goal is to put the axle back together. Thursday's goal is to put the new control arm, if i have it, on and replace the axle. All i need from here is a rewired headlight, a new hood and fender and i should be dandy.
