1989 Cadillac Eldorado 4.5L runs perfect and dies

Well the car drives fine until one day it died on me. so the repair man fixed the problem by changing the alternator, then the car ran perfect again. next day or two it was running perfect and again car died. so i figured it was alternator. I saw that the belt totally broke the alternator, so i replaced it myself again. so the car ran great as it did before it died two times. but, it died again and i dont know if its the alternator again ? or maybe the battery?? i tried jumping it but is there something else i must check. i will change alternator again and see what happens, ill keep you posted on my results and hope it help you guys out!!

Your alternators should have a warranty on them...but if your car is breaking alternators, you may have the wrong size belt...maybe to small and putting to much strain on your alternator.

SOURCE: 1989 Cadillac Eldorado dies right after I start it

you could see if you have a friend that could help you bye starting the car for you and you need to un hook the top of air box as if you were going to change the breather take a small coke bottle and pour about 1 cup of gas in your bottle hold your breather hose up and pour about 1/2 shot glass gas down the hose and see if that alows it to continue to run if it does you may have a bad or weak fuel pump but I will warn you to be careful when dealing with gasoline do not go to overboard use your best judgement

Sounds like you have a faulty alternator, sir. Your car seems to be running off battery power. Once the battery power is exhausted, the engine dies. It will start and run again if you charge the battery, but only for a few minutes until the battery dies again.

My 1984 cadi eldorado keeps dying or losing power when I first start it up. It does not die when I am driving it. I have just replaced the fuel pump and thought that it would end the problem. Is there...


I have an eldorado 1984 barritz 4.1 engine. I am no mechanic but had a similar problem and it ended up being the main head gasket bolts were loose out of spec causing loss of compression and water and oil mix. I did the work myself but it was a fight. the car runs strong and with alot of power.

'89 Eldorado starts fine but dies


It take two people to find out if it has sparkplug fire. If it is not getting any fuel you may pour a small amount into throttle body and see if it will start if you have spark. If you turn it over trying to start it you should see the injectors squirting fuel down into it.
