Question about 1995 Cadillac Eldorado

1 Answer

1995 Eldorado I have not started in 5 years.


I have a 1995 Eldorado I have not started in 5 years. I kind of let it go I have someone that wants to buy and I started working on it. I put a new battery in it and it didnt start. I changed the fuel pump and fuel filter and it started right up. The problem now is that it is sucking the battery dry. It gave me a Service Charging system and the battery would no longer start. What is the Charging system? My first thoght was the alternator.

1995 Cadillac Eldorado won't turn over. Battery

First check if the wires are still on the starter and tight. Then ..
While someone tries to turning the key tap on the starter body with a rod or bar, if this causes the starter to try and engage you have a bad starter.
Hope this helps.

Hello, Sheila. 
I had the same problem with my 1995 Eldorado. What I found was a fuel leak sourced at the fuel rail (some kind of plastic tubing) above the engine. I found out that there was a recall for this fuel rail. The dealer replaced it for free with stainless steal. It's lucky my car didn't burn to the ground.
Last week there was a house that caught fire here in Portland. The fire started in a carport. Guess what kind of car was sitting in the carport. Guess where the firefighters believe the fire started. The answers, a Cadillac Eldorado and in the engine compartment of the car.
