  1. '97 etc flooded after hot soak

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    Lately, if/when I try to start my car after it's been running for awhile, but before it has had a chance to cool down completely, it will act like it's flooded - hard to start, backfires sometimes. If I open the throttle a little, that seems to help. I think one or more of the injectors must...
  2. What is this part? picture included!

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    So i discovered where I was leaking coolant, it was from the part pictured below. It would leak onto a hot metal pipe below and evaporate before it could hit the ground( which explains why i didnt have a puddle of coolant under my car). I want to replace this part but i dont know what the name...
  3. Bottomed Out - Advice Needed

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Took a trip today to an unfamilar area in the Cadillac. Google maps directed us to an unpaved road which I decided to take since we had already driven for an hour. Before long the unpaved road turned into more of a trail/path, with grass in between the light treads left by the few other cars...

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Hey guys, I searched the threads and couldn't find anything related to this concern I have. The other day I drove about 45 minutes in nearly 90 degree heat to attend a live blues show. I pulled into the parking ramp next door and went to put the top up. I pushed the button to "up" and nothing...

  6. Slow Cranking When Hot

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    A new issue has developed with my '95 DeVille 4.9. This morning I drove into work, 14 miles on the highway one way. No A/C on because it's broke. It's cloudy out and 77. Stopped at the store to mail a letter (walk up and drop it-that quick) and when I came back to start the car it would barely...

  8. 96 Deville Blows ONLY Hot Air

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    I'm not really handy with cars at all, but I have experienced a lot since I got my Cadillac. The problem I am dealing with now is my A/C. For some reason only hot air blows out of the vents. I live in Florida so this is driving me nuts. I refilled the refrigerant, and there doesn't seem to be a...
