Can be so many things, special after you changed (rebuilt it) things. Can be a plug, wrongly connected, build in a defective part. A bad dynamo or voltage regulator. Try to find what is working and where the voltage is not coming or to low.
Would be almost impossible for anyone else to diagnose, if a skilled rebuilder can't find what is wrong, when he is working on the car.

SOURCE: at idle the oil pressure like comes on and engine

If you have a HT4100 engine, the block is aluminum and the design is poor. It is quite possible that the main bearing saddles are out of alignment and that's causing your problem. That condition can only be corrected with an align bore which requires total engine dis-assembly. On an old vehicle, it is just way too expensive.
If you really want to keep the car, consider an engine upgrade but that too costs a lot.
I know that this isn't what you wanted to hear, but it is what it is...
good luck!

SOURCE: is there are light or gauge for temp. in a 1988 Cadillac Brougham

If you do not have a guage in the instrument cluster then it is going to be a light. The light will be red or orange and shaped like a little thermostat. When you turn the key to the on position it should iluminate briefly before starting the car. If it does not then you may have bulb out in the cluster.

check your vacuum lines running from the motor to
the firewall , many vehicles use engine vacuum to
operate these vents , a broken or cracked line
will prevent proper operation.

My 1989 Cadillac Brougham 307 starts up and pulls off but doesn't go more than 15 miles or so...replaced ignition coil and alternator, wire, spark plugs.Could it be my fuel pump is bad..?

There is another ignition module in your distributor that should have been changed when you were doing tune up. Try that first, then you can check fuel pressure to see if pump OK.
Another problem with these cars, was the catalytic converter plugging up.

Washer fluid will not pump on a 1989 Cadillac Brougham

The Brougham is the rear wheel drive version - so the washer pump is mounted on the wiper motor.
Depending on what is wrong with the pump, you could replace it or rebuild it.
A mechanic would make sure the wiper motor is getting power to the pump when you engage the switch.

1989 cadillac brougham wont start

Maybe the engine overheated and is now frozen. If so, that is definitely bad news.

I have a 1989 Cadillac brougham and the check engin light comes on when I start it and let it idel but if I start it and put just a very little pressure on the gas peadle it's stays off what does that...

It would be worth checking or changing the air, fuel and oil filters and if that doesn't help try getting the engine codes checked with an obd reader.
Hope this helps.

Where can i get my computer read for an '89 brougham; besides the dealership?

Most large shops have a diagnostic and charge anywhere from 50-90 bucks to run it on your car. That of course does not include any repair. Autozone and Advance both advertise that they will hook up their little 30 dollar unit to your car and tell you the error codes. That however is limited to the reader, which may well only be for cars after 96, and the skill of the employee who was making pizza last week and delivering newspapers the week before.

Alternator belt not alinged with crank or cam.

I changed the length of the bolts,but made sure they were strong and used spacers and washers to extend the alternator out about one inch towards the raditor. why does every one want to charge for the time and not give you an answer. I do not plan on visiting these sites, to many dishonest people.

thanks for wanting to charge me. I gave you my fix for nothing
