    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Start the car up and it feels like my '02 Z28. You can barely feel or hear it but I take notice of these things. These things idle like sewing machines so hence my concern. I think there is a drop in midrange performance. Gas mileage is slightly suffering. Was going to check the plugs till...

    My suede wheel and shift knob have gotten pretty darn dirty and matted over the last 17k miles. I tried a couple ways to clean it and found out the best way to do it was to use regular "Dawn" brand dish soap and microfiber towels. Just lather up the microfiber up with water and soap and than...
