You would have to take a picture and send to mcalkins3@yahoo.com to verify fix. Sadly if its that bad I imagine the rest of the car is pretty rough underneath. Technically speaking if the car is worth fixing the welder would have to be an up to date D.O.T cerfitied welder.

Rod attached to frame in front of rear wheels rusted thru can it be replaced or repaired auto great shape but rusted there


If this is an alignment rod Bar that you are talking off that goes back to the lower arm and the rust is in that attachment point where it is mounted to the frame Then it can be repaired with a new section being welded it but you will need an accredited welder / panel beater to do the job . If it is rusted through the frame then have the whole frame checked because rust is not always visible until the paint is disturbed. This part is vital to the steering stability and if not done properly will result in serious injury to the driver and others.

Approx. cost to replace front brakes 2001 Cadillac Seville


Replacing what?


You have brake pads,only if worn down to nothing
You have rotors that can be machined once or twice
You have rotors that are worn & badly rusted & need to be replaced
You could have rusted & frozen calipers from not changing the fluid
every 2 years
You could have failing rubber flex hoses about due to be replaced
You have both the front & back brakes & don't always do on same schedule

I would expect you have a repair shop or several different places
you have gone to over the years,so I would say ask them.
Figure the prices your asking are about ,are what you have always paid

One thing you never ask a pro in the auto repair business is to
ball park or guess at price,they hate that,not me, the shops you go to.

There is a squeaking sound on the front right wheel of my L300 van and its getting hot even on a short drive!


On older vehicles rust can be a major factor in how your brakes work. You probably have a problem with the calipers not floating properly because the brake pads are jammed in place by rust. You will probably need to purchase new brake pads, discs and possibly new brake sliders . Take the calipers off , knock out the brake pads, and carefully take of the shiny brake sliders. The rust is under the sliders. Two bolts hold the caliper mount on , it will be easier to work on if you remove it from the vehicle. Take a file and clean the rust off the iron caliper mount till there is only metal. Coat the filed surfaces on the caliper mount with anti seize and put the sliders and the pads back on. Make sure the new pads float properly (not jammed like before) and reassemble. I have had several old Mitsubishi's with rust on the caliper mount that did the same thing. Wear a mask, it is a dirty job but filing off the rust should fix the problem.

How do I R&R front motor mounts on 2000 cadillac sts


Very easy, just remove front tires and unbolt, BUT I doubt you are asking right question. Not mounts, but mount in dead front center is problem. There are 4 mounts, transmission center back, left center and right center and front center. That takes full torque of motor and heat from exhaust. GM has a shield for exhaust.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1992 cadillac seville? my car wants to start, but no gas is getting to the air breather? make sense.


Unless this problem has been slowly creeping up on you, I'm going to say you need to look at the fuel pump too.

Under vehicle, driver side, below seating area, near fuel tank, mounted on frame rail in fuel line
