    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    So, I have noticed an ever increasing squealing noise coming from my 95 ETC under acceleration from 1500+RPM. It is more severe when the car is cold and sounds as if I suddenly have a supercharger under the hood. Now, the noise goes away when I shift the car into neutral and rev the engine...
  9. Transmission Oil Cooler Line Question

    My 1989 Eldorado is slowly leaking automatic transmission from the steel cooling line that runs in front of the driver-side front wheel, and under the radiator. It actually rusted through where the line clamps to the frame just in front of the wheel. I've put a bandaid on it with JB weld for...

    Two (totally unrelated) recent issues with my car I was wondering if I could get some input on. 1) Sometimes (not too often) when I go from reverse to D the transmission will make some weird sounds and the car will shudder a bit. Seems like it's most common if I'm on an uphill type arrangement...

  14. There's something wrong with my transmission

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    None of these problems were present before I had my transmission "serviced" about 500 miles ago. My SLS has 111000 miles, and it's recommended to change the fluid at 100K, so I figured it would be OK. So I took it to the dealer, and specifically told them not to flush the trans, only drop the...
