SOURCE: replacing spark plugs
Changing spark plugs in your Cad is not an easy thing. I tried it using the chiltons manual and it took five hours. Just in case you want to try it yourself you will need to start by removing the engine cover (two screws easy to locate). Next step is the tricky and tedious part. A black cylider with small vacuum tubes located at the rear center next to firewall needs to be removed. It is attached to the engine by an somewhat difficult to reach bolt and a almost impossible lower bolt that can be acessed underneath if you can find it and have hand of a ten year old. I removed it from bottom of vehicle than tightened it after from the top this is by far the most difficult of the process watch your knuckles. This vacuum valve is connected to a silver hose which needs to be unscrewed to remove valve two screws attach it from the bottom. This is another difficult one. Make sure the your socket is firmly onto the wrench, one socket remains hidden after it fell off, making a extra trip to the store neccasary after losing it. Move valve out of the way as best you can and what remaing are 8 bolts holding on the "ignition coil assembly". These shoul be taken out in a "W" pattern: top bottom top bottom. Remove these and remove panel another very tight fit. Remove spark plug boots and take out spark plugs and keep in order so that spark plug damage can be assessed according to corrisponding cyclider. Repeat for front plugs and reverse steps to reassemble. Spark plugs come pregaped. Start with the rear plugs, they are the most difficult, and you have a better idea how much time it will take.

The adjustment screws/nuts should be located either on the top of the headlamp assembly,
behind the headlamp assembly, or near the frame rail by the radiator
You will have vertical adjustment screws for each independent beam (separate highs and separate lows, but will be same screw if highs and lows are the same bulb). You may also have additional horizontal adjustment screws as well
Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)
For Low Beams: If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.
For High Beams (if separate from low beams): Aim the headlight directly at the line you marked on the wall.

your best bet is to go to your choice of auto repair store and purchase a Haynes Repair Manual for GM it covers the Cadi, Olds Toranado and the Buick Rivi 86-92, its located in the back section of the book youll have no problem locating it.

Get car on a lift as the filter is under car close to where your gas pedal foot may rest. Two open end wrenches will take it apart.

Had a computer on my 1990 Cadillac Deville bad, after changing plugs, wires, cap, fuel injectors, egr valve, etc.
The computer was not firing an injector and i had a miss and rough running mostly at 35 mph on the roads. It bucked like a bull.in a rodeo.
