My 1995 eldorado chugging


Hello
When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD1 or 2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD1 or 2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

What does it mean when the dashboard reads gear indicator fault, service ride control and change oil soon even after i just got it changed along with service vehicle thats what keeps popping up on my dash...


Off the top of my head the following may be the case for your 1995 Cadillac Deville based on my 1997 Cadillac Deville knowledge:

gear indicator fault- has to do with the shift lever sensor down on the column by the feet,

service ride control- has to do with the air ride shocks in the back or the compressor in the front or the ride control height,

change oil soon- has to do with not resetting the % oil life (just press reset button for a few seconds when the oil % life is displayed)

Hope this helps you out.

(1995 Cadillac Eldorado) - Service Engine Soon light is on.


If this problem just started I would try to get a jump on it. It will be easier to track down if the light just started coming on. Otherwise other problems may come into play and the mechanic will need longer to sort them out. At around 70.00hr.Cheapest fix is to try and drop in a set of plugs. Good luck.
