Question about 1998 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

1991 Cadillac Deville won't engage in gear

FWD model with 4.9 V8, has 140k gentle miles. Car ran great as always until tow and impound. After i paid to get the car out of the impound i found all gears except park seemed to act as neutral. The linkage cable is hooked up still and seems to be operating as it should. When car is started and put into reverse the reverse lights do not light, they did before. Any ideas/help would greatly be appreciated.

The idiots must have towed the the car by the wrong end , this will burn out the transmission in short order. Any car needs to be towed with the drive wheels off the ground, if that is not poss then the drive-shaft has to be removed.

My car just hit 100,000 miles and the trans is stuck in 2nd gear, any solutions


if its manual and you literally cannot pull the gear shifter out of gear, then when the engine is off, take off the parking brake, have someone rock the vehical back and forth gently while you keep the clutch depressed and try to take it out. then it should be towed (still in neutral might i add) to a shop. if this does not work with the clutch depressed, give it a shot with the clutch engaged (pedal all the way up)

Drivers window fell into to door. trying to remove door panel and try to figure out what happened. don't want to damage door panel by forcing panel off. 91 cad deville 35,000 miles sitting for long time....


Had exact same problem in '91 Cad. Fleetwood FWD, which is same as '91 Deville except for trim fender skirts. My mechanic said it was a broken window regulator. That part is not available new anymore, unless you can find some NOS. I bought a used regulator from Cadillacs Only for $75, and paid my mechanic for 1.5 hours of his time to r&r. Window now works fine. Not happy that I had this problem; regulator not a great design.
