    Re: 99 STS Project

    Had a first tonight, I paid $1200 for my STS, Offered the owner $1100 he said no, Offered $1150 he said no, so I paid $1200. Tonight I was installing my Sirius receiver had the center counsel and radio out. Low and behold behind the storage area infront of the shifter laid $48!! So I paid $1152 for my STS!!! I love my Caddy even more now.

    Re: 99 STS Project

    I think I might have solved it. Switched #1 plug to #4 coil and #4 plug to #1 no more stalling for 4 days. Last night I switched back to factory firing order and moved wires into differant areas and put 30 miles of stop and go. It has not stalled since so I will see what happens but thanks for the input.

    Re: 99 STS Project

    The firing order remains the same for the two plug wires on any given coil in a waste spark system - what may change is secondary current polarity.

    See the pre-2000 diagram in the other waste spark thread.

    Re: 99 STS Project

    Great work. I feel like I learned quite a bit, but still nowhere near enough. Much, much respect to you for single handedly saving a dying beauty, making her more glorious than ever!

    Again, Great work! Thanks for the write up and all the pics!

    Re: 99 STS Project

    Awesome! I am coming closer to 1,000 miles with my Seville and that is the point that I will have the first oil change. After that I am planning to take a road trip.

    Re: 99 STS Project

    got the check oil message after 1500 miles since last oil and filter. So I dont think oil consumtion is going to be a issue car has 3500 miles since rebuild and I am still loving it!!!!!!!!!

    Re: 99 STS Project

    I got the "Check Oil Level" message at 870 miles. 900 miles is when I changed my oil and filter.

    2,000 miles of test drive and no issues to date.

    Looks like we have some success stories - long live Sevilles!

    Re: 99 STS Project

    Hey Joe,

    Do you remember having to provide any additional support to the transmission when you separated the engine? I am doing a 2000 STS gasket replace now and the mounts are not like the 97 STS I did before. The engine/trans assembly seems very floppy in the cradle since the two side mounts are gone. I am afraid the trans will "fall" onto the cradle without the engine. I have a block of wood on a jack under oil pan now.
