SOURCE: I need to replace timing chain on 89 cadillac seville

Need to look at the distributor first and make sure its tightened down and cannot be easily rotated. May have gotten out of time enough to mess up the gear on the bottom of the distributor too...

You didn't include the mileage so I'm assuming its fairly high..

Could be the cap too they short internally and mess up good

2008 cadillac escalade wont start nothing turns on except dashboard and it only says service suspension system and parking assist off


so what you mean is it wont turn over? do the lights dim in the start mode of ignition switch? sounds like a few hard taps on the starter and maybe it will turn over,, might be you have a bad starter.

Set timing mode 1995 cadillac deville


Depending on the trouble codes, it may be the ECM. (computer)
You can have the car scanned for codes or attempt it yourself.
The "set timing mode" is the section of the computer program that you access to change the base timing. It should not show up on the display unless you access it.

Need to know what the degree the timing should be for a4.9 Cadillac Engine ?


The 1991 Cadillac DeVille 4.9 engine incorporates a magnetic timing probe hole for use with special electronictiming equipment. Malfunction codes may be set during ignition timing adjustment procedure.Enter diagnostics and clear trouble codes if this occurs.#1 Place transmission in park .#2 With the ignition in the Off position attach a timing light to #1 spark plug cable .#3 With engine at normal operating temperature and air conditioning OFF,take off the air cleaner upper housing. The engine should be OFF at this point.#4 Jump pins A and B at the ( ALDL) connector.while not in diagnostic display.SET TIMING MODE message will apear on the climate control Driver Information center.#5 Start the engine and aim the timing light the timing mark loosen the distributor hold-down nut. While observing the timing mark, rotate distributor untill the line indicates the correct timing .This sets the base timing at 10 degrees BTDC at any speed under 800 RPM in the (PCM) The PCM controles the timing throughout the intire engine RPM range.This is the best imformation I can offer you good luck.
