(1995 Cadillac Eldorado) - Service Engine Soon light is on.
Car is a little sluggish when changing gears and is idling at 3500 rpms at only 55-60 mph. Service engine soon light is not on at engine startup, but comes on shortly thereafter as I'm driving. Should I continue to drive it in this condition?

Re: (1995 Cadillac Eldorado) - Service Engine Soon light...
If this problem just started I would try to get a jump on it. It will be easier to track down if the light just started coming on. Otherwise other problems may come into play and the mechanic will need longer to sort them out. At around 70.00hr.Cheapest fix is to try and drop in a set of plugs. Good luck.

3500 rpms is about 80 mph. Is this noise in 1st, 2nd & 3rd gear? Is check engine light on?
Chirping could be accessory belt noise. Spray them one at a time with belt dresing to see if it goes away and which belt is doing it.
Sounds like a defective IDLE AIR CONTROL valve, but before you can confirm you need to proof it out and also look the engine over for vacuum leaks and/or wiring problems. Also find out if you have an engine light and any stored code/s.
CSP, It sounds like you have a vacuum leak that is causing the IAC ( idle air control ) motor to move in and out trying to control the idle. Check all vacuum hoses on the engine for disconnect, cracked or damaged. If the hoses crack when you bend them, they need to be replaced.
Let me know what you find and we can go from there.
I have a 1994 Cadillac Eldorado and every time i start it the car has rough Idle and the Idle fluctuate's. I also can feel it in the gas pedal when the car is doing this I tried replacing the throttle body sensor but it still does it I also was told it was the Idle error sensor. So instead of spending the unecessary money again I thought I would go online and see if anyone could help me with this problem.
