How much it is to re-seal a Cadillac Seville northstar engine?

December 28th, 2010 · No Comments

its a 97 cadillac seville sts, engine runs excellent, very sporty, very fast, just leaks oil pretty bad, about a qt. every 4 days, its a beautiful car, I drove it from detroit, MI to anch, alaska, over time its developed a nasty leak, I had the oil coolant lines replaced, still leaks, even though they said that would stop it.
Im thinking its a main seal, its seem to be coming from the front passenger side which is where the belt line is, I was thinking of just taking it in and having em pull the engine and re-seal it, but Im also thinking worst case scenerio here, it may not be.

How hard would it be to change the brakes on a 1991 Cadillac Seville

December 27th, 2010 · No Comments

My boyfriend has a 1991 Cadillac Seville. How hard is it to change the brakes on this kind of car? My dad can do a regular car but wasn’t sure about this one. Would it be easier just to buy the parts and take it to a mechanic and pay more?

December 27th, 2010 · No Comments

Isn’t the so-called high technology can detect if there’s anything wrong with the car and send signal to my car and has a light on? Well my car just died without any warning lights, I’m so disappointed with Onstar and Cadillac.

How to replace 2002 Nissan Frontier clutch?

December 23rd, 2010 · No Comments

I just bought a brand new clutch it comes with everything i need i just don’t know how to do it.
A: Replacing the clutch is a tedious job which requires dropping the engine while keeping the car stable, keeping track of the parts and many more… It is even more difficult with a larger vehicle. I would take it to a mechanic who has the proper tools and equipment for this. It is simple but consumes a lot of time, but at least since you bought the clutch, you will only be paying for the labor.

Oxygen Sensor – Low Voltage?

December 22nd, 2010 · No Comments

I ran numerous Diagnostics tests with the OBD-II readers and replaced many oxygen sensors (Bosch and Delphi) with my 2000 Chevrolet Silverado. But my check engine light has been on for the past month with the new oxygen sensor. The last test, I replaced the Bosch oxygen sensor with a Delphi. I made a quick run to Tuffy and asked to run a test for my truck. They did. After that, it read O2 Sensor – Bank 2 Sensor 2 – Low Voltage. I know it’s downstream (passenger side, after the cats). The mechanic told me it has something to do with the wiring harness that connects to the computer, or a wire has been tugged/pinched during installation (made sure I didn’t touch anything other than the oxygen sensor).
