  3. RWD DeVille/Fleetwood, Brougham 19xx-1996
    I'm looking to switch out my stock 90 q-jet with another thats off a mid 80s caprice. Just wondering if it will work. I dont think the new one is computer controlled. The old one is giving me too many problems and the one from the caprice looks to have a recent rebuild.

    I am new here and I am looking at purchasing 2 cars. The first is a '96 Deville The second is a '96 Eldorado with a bad motor What I was wondering is if I could just drop the subframes from both cars and switch them so the eldorado is driveable and the deville would be the parts car. I...
  5. FWD DeVille 1985-2005, Fleetwood, and 60 Special
    I just bought a 99 Deville Concours with 98K about 4 weeks ago. So far I've put about 400 miles on it and when I started it up Saturday morning the "Service Engine Soon" light was on. Later on during the day I started it up again and the light was off. I drove it Sunday and the light back on...

    Hey all, I am looking at a 2001 Cadillac DTS and it's got the CD-ROM based navigation. I am not interested in this based on everything I have read here. However, I have not seen anything with regards to removing that and replacing it with a factory Bose stereo. Are there any gotchas that...

    2000 DHS, 280,000 miles tranny and engine never opened up, daily driver, approx 800-1000 miles per week. I am going to swap out my engine for one of Jake's and think it might be worthwhile to overhaul or have overhauled my transmission. I have pulled engines on MGB's and pretty much everything...

    I swapped out the BCM in my '90 DeVille and the the "dash gremlins" are gone. No more lights blinking off and on and clicking relay. HVAC and Fuel Data Center seem to be working again! Thanks to all on this fine site for their input. Regards, Matt
  11. FWD DeVille 1985-2005, Fleetwood, and 60 Special
    Hi, hope this is the right thread. I was wondering if there is a possibility that I could swap the engine from my Deville DHS 2000 (275 hp) with an engine from Seville STS 2001 (302 hp) without some major modifications? Also would I have to swap the transmission or anything else to?
  12. FWD DeVille 1985-2005, Fleetwood, and 60 Special
    Hi all, My friend has a 92 deville with security. Someone tried to steal it and messed up the column so we switched it out. Now we get nothing. The interior lights, dash and headlights all work but nothing when you try to start it. The security light stays on when the key is in the start...

  14. STS Forum - 2005-2012
    OK, so I figured somebody's got to pick up the slack now that our ego maniacal member is on "temporary vacation" from his grandiose posts :D But, seriously, you think I could pull the leather from the drivers seat and swap it with the passengers? I "skinned" my wifes PT Cruiser seats to put...
  15. 500, 472, 425, 368
    I have a 66 Deville convertible and I've reached the limits of my patience with the engine. I bought the car back in '96 and had the stock 429 rebuilt two years later by a substandard engine contractor for Kragen. Later I found out this was exactly the wrong thing to do. I've been able to...

  17. Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    The title says it all; how difficult is it to swap over to a new engine?? The procedure itself. Northstar 4.6 in a 2001 DTS. We have a bad rod. Had a hard knock at acceleration, thought it was EGR valve, no such luck. Husband will be doing it, mechanically inclined , yet, not a professional...
  18. 2008-2013 CTS General Discussion
    I just picked up my 2008 Thundergray CTS with the premium luxury package including the 17" hand polished wheels. Question- since I did not order the Sport Package/Suspension that includes the 18" wheels, is it a problem to mount the OEM 18" wheel on this vehicle or will it throw the car off...

  20. Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    I lowered my truck over the weekend by using the McGaughty spindles in the front but the damn instructions did not tell me the following torque values. I searched the net and found some but I need one more: Does anyone know what are the torque values for the following: Are these correct...
