1985 Delta 88 Royal Brougham Sedan won't start

The electric stuff works when I turn the key, but the engine won't turn over. Thinking maybe starter (but then don't think anything would start...?). Or, maybe fuel pump? If anyone can help, can you also tell me where the problematic parts are located too?

I have 1985 cadillac fleetwood brougham that will not start. I replaced fuel pump and it still wont start. But if you spray starter fluid in caberator/fuel injector. It will start but one that runs out ,...


Did you change the fuel filter it maybe plugged. The fuel regulator maybe weak or not working as well. It is definitely a fuel problem. Is the engine carb or throttle body as I am not sure. If it is a carb the pump in the carb maybe weak or if it is a TBI then check and make sure the injectors are opening in key on position before start up. Hope this helps.

How much is a used 89 delta 88 worth with new brakes and 100 000 km on engine?


There are many factors that go into a cars value. You best bet to get the best ball park figure is to google search NADA blue book or Kelly Blue Book. These companies specialize in determining the value of vehicles and are the industry standard when it comes to car value.

Once you are on there site you will enter several key important pieces of information like engine size, 2 door or 4 door, Royal or brougham, sunroof, what power option, Etc. and then give you the approximate values.

Off the top of my head you could expect any where from $1000 to $2500 depending on the condition. New brake, tires, or other repairs make no difference on the value of the car. Those are things that needed to be done although they are good selling points.

Your brake booster may be leaking or the check valve on the vacuum hose going to the booster may be bad. Do you hear a hissing sound coming from the booster when you push the petal? Check these first before tearing down your engine. Good luck. Please rate me so I know how I'm doing. Thanks.

If everything else checks out Ok in the ignition system (electrical) and if the engine and transmission turn freely,that sound like you might have starter drag.Check to see if you have good connections at the starter.I know its new but check your battery for 12 volts,good connections,ect.
