I might be getting a 1995 Sedan de Ville. I don't know a whole lot about these cars so I wanted see what people who own them have to say. It's got 134,000 miles, 4.9 V8. Any common problems to look for? The guy says the air compressor is making noise. Anyone had to change one. He said of you take the serpintine belt off, it doesn't make any noise and he's already changed the alternator and P/S pump trying to fix the problem. 3 different shops have told him it is the compressor, but it should only turn if the A/C is on. Could it just be the A/C clutch? Any help and comments about these cars would be greatly appreciated!! Also, are these air ride suspension?

Thanks

If it makes noise with the A/C off, then it is the clutch as the compressor is not turning. Much easier and cheaper to repair.

Make sure the coolant has been changed every 2 yrs.

Hi, I love my De Ville, but I have had to replace my blower motor and wiper motor, and now I have to change the water pump, but I do enjoy the ride in my Caddy.
