Question about 1990 Cadillac Brougham

2 Answers

90Cadillac Brougham has been sitting

It has only 10k original miles and was driven last about 2 years ago. The oil was changed about 3-4 years ago but other than that it has all of the original fluids which do not look bad.

What recommendation do you have before starting and driving the car.

Also noticed last time I drove it that the ride was not great. It has the original factory gold seal uniroyal tires and the real wire wheels. I think it is the tires or possibly the wheels.

Thanks in advance for your advise.

Dennis

You will have to dratn the old gas out and put new gas in. And change the engine oil and filter. As for the way it rides, the tires most likely have flat spots from sitting in one spot so long. Hope this is helpful.

Replace all your fluids including the gas. Even if the gas looks good it can still be bad and will make the car run horrible. Oil needs to be changed just sitting everything has broken down same with tranny fluid. Change the tires and check the suspension and the shocks. Very nice car though. Just do the normal maintance on it. Filter, oil, tranny fluid, spark plugs, tires normal

Do u think its better to change oil eventhough we often use the suv, the last time we change was 8 months ago.


Yes. it is recommended to change your oil every 3 months or 3000 miles, whichever comes first. I had a customer brag that they never needed to change thier oil. the oil was so full of sludge (burnt oil and carbon buildup) we had to use a screw driver to poke thru it to get to what little oil was left. most vehicles will not last that long and will blow the motor. so 19.95 every 3 months or so or 2500.00 plus and weeks of your vehicle in a shop oh id say every 2 to 3 years to replace your entire engine???

I have a 2003 Jetta TDI with 90k. Until recently I have consistently gotten 46-48 mpg. Over the past 3 months the mpg has been decreasing. The current mpg is about 30. I change the oil every 3k...


don't know about the MPG it could be a lot of things. I have a 2001 Jetta TDI. You should NEVER change the oil at 3K miles. VW recommends 10K miles for a reason. The Synthetic oil has additives to remove varnish and it does that but it needs some time to replace the varnish and properly protect sensitive engine parts. 3K is oil changes are not a good thing for a TDI......Just use the right oil and change at 10K

How often should i change my oil? My mom said that the dealership who she purchased the car from told her that once a year was all that was necessary. She puts approx 8 to 10k on her car annually. She has...


definitely not once a year at 8-10k. 3-5k miles on average and if a lot of highway miles 4-6k and if you don't put that many miles on it then at least 1 once a year no matter how few miles

Fuel gage does not work at all. What steps would


Man, I love this car when they first came out. Friend of mine had one with turbo with Lotus suspension/handling. Being 1988 would not surprised me if the AUTOMETER FUEL LEVEL SENDING UNIT is bad, it does not matter if its has only 10k miles because of the year. The car is 21 year old and very seldom any electrical system that sit in the chemicals or petroleum that long will last without developing any corrosion or rust. Keep in mind, being 21 years old car with only 60k miles, is telling me its has been sitting for a long time without being driven. Your Isuzu should have 252k miles if it had been driven 12k per year although it average 2800 miles per year. I have seen a 5 year old gas tank that has been left sitting half empty, it has so much rust and corrosion in the tank you would not believed because of moister. This is a true fact, If better to leave the gas tank completely full or completely empty sitting and will have less chance developing corrosion. First, Check all fuses to make sure you getting power to the gages. The only way to test the unit is to test the unit itself. There is plastic connector on top of the tank you can test by unplugging the connector and using the 12v light tester to see if you getting power from main source. My sense tells me the AUTOMETER FUEL LEVEL SENDING UNIT is bad and need replacing. It will cost you 38 bucks auto parts warehouse.com, very easy to replace. If you have plans to keep that car, I would get your self Hayne's auto repair books for 20buck to keep for the next repair. Great book will teaches you alot about the car and the heart of it. Good luck, hope this help some

Oil light goes on...had a dry stick 4 1/2 qts put in. no oil on ground. after oil change light went on at 70 miles.. on 15 secs then off for 5 miles then on again 15 secs--- off 4 miles--off 3 miles- off 2...


if it's not going onto the ground, and it's not being burned, check the positive crankcase ventilation and the exhaust gas recirculation valves for oil seepage...also check your air filter, if its got oil on it replace the pcv valve.

Changing oil


In all probability, oil is fine. However once used and stored it does tend to build up some acidity. For the price of an oil change, I'd hate to see you loose the engine! I have never seen an engine fail from too many oil changes!!!
