I was send here from the GMforum,I was able to fix my wifes 1994 sts with help from guys at the GMforum,I hope that I will get more information here.Our Cadillac has been very good to us, she have 78k miles and only had a few problems.At 50k the A/C compressor gave up,then a hose started leaking after a few months.Ignition coils two of them were replaced at 60k miles.Now thats she's getting old,I want to start doing most of the work,I just fixed the hard to start problem by replacing the fuel pressure regulator.
I'm realy happy to know that this forum exsist.Thanks for having us.

The STS is my wifes car,Its white diamond with beige leather and most of the option sunroof,cd etc.Its a very fine car to drive I think it could use a better brakes but thats only my opinion.Handles well for a big heavy car.Only have 78k on the oddometer its easy to maintain just change the oil when the computer tells you to.Any ways had a hard to start problem that I fixed last week end by changing the fuel pressure regulator.I also replaced the positive battery cables and cleaned the carbon deposit on the phlenium plates.She is running fine now like a big cat that purrs when I step on the gas pedals.
About the Porsches well they are the classic lite weight 911 the 68 is the last of the short wheelbase cars it was my first,but the previous owner transplanted a 1973 2.4 911s engine on her so she is not pure.I found a 1973 911s body with no engine later so I took the one from the 68 to my new one,now Ihave a 68 soft top targa with no engine.

This Is My Second Attempt To Reply Regarding Water Pump So You May Get Both.if Its The Same As My Etc The Pump Is Located Behind The Thermostat Cover.drivers Side Where Lower Radiator Hose Connects. Drain Cooling System, Remove Two Bolts On The Flange Where The Lower Radiator Hose Connects ,there You Will Find The Thermostat. The Housing That Holds The Stat Covers The Water Pump.to Access The Pump Remove The 4 10mm Bolts On The Housing Two Will Practially Jump Out In Your Hands. The Lower Front Is A Pain (no Room To Swing A Wrench) The Lower Rear Is A Nightmare,because There Is A Major Wiring Harness In Your Way And You Will Have Lots Of Fun Trying To Get A Wrench On It No Less Get It Out! When You Recover From That You Will Need A Special Wrench To Get The Pump Out As It Goes Through The Other Side Of The Housing.i'm Told That Some Parts Houses Will Lend You The Wrench If You Buy It There.(auto Zone). My Cad Dealer Said The Pump Goes For Around $70 $110 Sounds A Bit Steep.if You Have Time To Wait For It Check Out Vans Chevrolet On The Web They Have It Listed For $49. While You Have It Apart You May As Well Replace The Stat And The Belt (you Dont Want To Do This Twice). If You Have Access To A Die Grinder Cut A Small "v" In The Flange On The New Stat At Its Highest Mounting Point Just Enough To Create A Tiny Bypass.this Came To Me From A Good Mechanic And It May Save A Lot Of Time Constantly Bleeding The Cooling System.it Worked For Me. Good Luck With Your Repair Hope I Shed Some Light On It.
