fluid leaks

  1. Persistant Leaking

    HT4100 4.1, 4.5, 4.9
    The Seville repairs are finished! Rusted wheels, front brakes along with rear air struts. Gave it a good cleaning inside and out while I was at it. Now to get back to the 83 Eldorado... When I went to retrieve it from the warehouse I noticed quite a puddle of transmission fluid on the floor. I...
  2. How many classic limos are left?

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I just rescued a clean, 94K mile, 1979 Fleetwood standard limousine from the crusher. It only had a cracked starter: runs and drives perfectly! I am wondering, out of all factory limos Cadillac produced prior to 1979, how many might still be on the road? I know that mine is one of 2,025...
  3. Two Limos

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I have noticed a '95, '96 or '97 Lincoln stretch limousine parked on a nearby street in a residential area. I am beginning to think that someone bought (not rented) it and plans to keep it at his house. It has been there about two weeks already. Today, I drove my '76 Cadillac limo so I pulled...
  4. DTS Has Different Brake Rotors?

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    I am looking into getting a set of Drilled/Slotted Rotors for my 02 DTS, either Brembo or EBC's. Brembo lists a different part number for HD (Heavy Duty Brakes). I didn't think I had HD brakes, but then when I look at the EBC's they list the DTS with different Rotors... 12.8 inch diameter...

  6. Posi rear end price?

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I'm looking to install a posi rear end from a late model Impala SS or Caprice into my '79 Deville. What's a good price for one with 3.08 gears and disc brakes? I'm just looking for a ballpark figure to start with! Also if anyone has any good sources for one, I'd appreciate that as well...
  7. Saw a DTS limousine

    Cadillac DTS Forum 2006 through 2011
    I was driving in downtown Phoenix and saw a new DTS limo conversion driving along. I guess it was privately owned also, no dealer licence plate. It looked pretty good though, jet black with black tinted windows and chrome door handles. It didn't have a normal rear door either, it had a big door...
  8. 93 Fleetwood White/W/Black interior. Rare?

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    No one I have talked to has ever seen a Fleetwood with this color set. I have never seen ANY car that color set. White exterior with a Black interior. Is this rare? Im just curious is why I ask. Also is there any way to look up how many Fleetwoods were made and what colors they were etc. from...
  9. The Oldsmobile 307 VIN "9"

    5.0 and 5.7
    Has anyone tried putting a 307-9 in a Brougham which originally had a 307-Y engine? How did it run? Did everything switch-over? From what I understand, mostly hearses and limos got the 307-9. I've never seen a regular Brougham with the 307-9. I'm asking just in case I ever get tired of my...
  10. 1981 Cadillac strating problems, error codes

    Hello, I am sitting here in Germany with our 1981 Cadillac fleetwood with this long wheelbase and 8 Seats and we have problems to start the engine. Engine starts but goes off after running 1 or two seconds. On board computer shows when I ask it a "88". What does this mean ? Can I find a...
  11. Paint paint paint

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    As soon as I find a bumper and shimmy my new fender on for my 1990 Brougham, I will be getting my beauty painted. I have two idea's for paint on my caddy; keep the boring factory brown color or get my cadillac painted a light black with 'metallic flake' and the bottom trim a dark black (or maybe...

    500, 472, 425, 368
    I have a 368cu. in. 6L V8, but when it's running, it sounds like not all 8 cylinders are running, but after about 30 minutes of driving, they work... Is this normal for a 25 year old engine? **edit... i'm new, and I don't know how to delete my posts.. and this is in the wrong thread, so...
  14. Redoing Vinyl Top

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    So I've got $500 burning a hole in my pocket and I'm ready to make an appointment to have my vinyl top redone I however have a few questions. How long will it take to have the top redone? Two? Three days? Also if I asked him to get the opera lights working, do you think he'd successfully be able...

There is also a '76 DeVille.... what is the gear in that? and...
  16. Pondering buying a 94-96 Fleetwood

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I am pondering replacing my 91 SDV with a 94-96 Fleetwood. 1. I like the RWD platform better. 2. Same front suspension as my 80 Turbo Trans AM. 3. Similar engine, trans and rear end to my 96 Suburban 4. RWD 5. RWD 6. LT1 What are your thoughts? Worthy cars? I am concerned on...
  17. Why 6 Lugs?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Why does the V come with 6 lug hubs? I am assuming that there is some sort of engineering principle behind it but I can figure it out. I guess it is not a torque issue because the new Z06 is putting out 100 pounds more but uses a 5 lug pattern. Did the engineers just raid the corporate parts...
