. Windows use a circuit braker, not a fuse. I wiuld first remove l
L/F door window switch and test for power at switch plug with a 12V test light. Depending on results would determine my next move.

SOURCE: how to change the oil

The oil filter should be under the mid section of the engine. It is located in a cylindrical canister approximately four (4) inches in diameter and seven (7) inches long. Remove the bolt holding it onto the engine and the filter is inside. Purchase the filter first from your local auto parts store, about $7 and it will help you identify the shape of the casing it is located in. Not to bad a change but I found that with the cost of oil, disposal fee, and filter that it was actually less expensive to let Goodyear do it. Before taking it in for the change, call ahead and ask if they're running the special on oil changes. Even if they're not, they'll more likely then not quote the sale price to get your business. Works every time for me. $19.50.

SOURCE: how do i change the water pump in a 93 cadillac el

I am going to assume you have the northstar engine.

First of all,you need the removal tool which looks like this.

http://www.etoolcart.com/gmnorthstarwaterpumpsocketast7880.aspx


You need to remove the air filter housing and ducting to gain easy access to the pump.

Remove the shield covering the pulley and belt. The belt is easily removed by levering the tensioner pulley.

The water pump is located at the lower radiator hose manifold where you will also find the thermostat.Remove the manifold cover and you will see the water pump.

Insert the removal tool over the pump making sure it is locked in position.You will need to use a breaker bar on the removal tool and turn the tool CLOCKWISE to release the pump (1/4 turn), or if you imagine the breaker bar being vertical, push towards the windscreen of your car,it takes quite a bit of force to unseat the pump hence the use of a breaker bar.

Installing the new pump does not require as much torque as removing the old one.Tighten the new pump to 73 ft.lbs. making sure it is seated properly before tightening.

Don't forget to clean out the water pump housing prior to installing the new pump and don't forget to include a new water pump gasket and housing cover gasket.

It is also a good idea to install a new thermostat while you're at it.

Not sure if it will work for this car, but turn the key to the ON position, and leave it like that for 10 - 15 minutes. I know thats how some GM cars are reset. If you have a weak battery be sure to hook a charger up to it while doing this.

I'm assuming you have the Northstar engine.

My experience on replacing the water pump is with a 1998 STS but this should apply to your car too.

First of all,you will need the Northstar waterpump removal tool, You can get this from most reputable auto part stores.

Have 1992 El Dorado, a/c or heater motor will not run, dash display shows working, replaced resistor, still does not work.Any suggestions?


had same thing happen on my 92 el dorado. problem is at the blower control power relay the 2 plug connectors or the connector for the blower fan. theree is a flow chart to test the voltages going to these connector in the factory shop manual, for a 92 el dorado on page 1C-17 if I remember correctly. if voltages check ok then make sure plugs are securely plugged in. if still does not work, then it's the blower control power relay. good luck!

I have a 1992 El Dorado. It runs like a TOP! It has just over 182,000 miles. I took it for an oil change and now, at low idle, the "LOW OIL PRESSURE / STOP ENGINE" comes on. I took it back and...


I would check the wiring between the oil pressure sensor and the computer. The computer is reading low or no pressure, hence the warning light. If your mechanic is telling the truth about the pressure and the pressure sensor is good, that is the only thing it could be.

Bogging


Sometimes Rev-Bogging can be caused by the timing chain being off of it's manufactured or normal rating or specs. Have a car-head take a look it could be that your valve-springs are shot after all the car is an 85' Eldo and chances you rebuilt the motor are very low
