1984 Cadillac Sedan Deville Brougham distributor wire connections

I have a 1984 Cadillac Sedan Deville Brougham with the HT 4100 eight cylinder engine. I replaced the distributor cap and now can not put the numbered spark plug wires back in the correct place on the distributor. Can you help? Is there a website to which I can go to get this type of information? God bless us both. Pat

When I push on the accelerator when its in drive after its warm, my 1984 Cadillac Sedan DeVille with the 4100 engine, pings and knocks. The warmer it is the more it does it. What would cause it and what...

use a highr grade petrol ,this vehicle was not designed for unleaded and as such has no cat so maybe a lead additive (europe) if it does have a cat then the timing needs retarding a bit to 6? as this age will have a distributor .

How can ifix the pinging and knocking in my 1984 cadillac sedan deville with the 4100 when I push on the accelelerator?

Pinging or spark knock, if that's what you're hearing, is caused by ignition timing that is too far advanced. Being too far advanced causes the fuel mixture to explode rather than burn smoothly, and it can destroy the pistons. If the vehicle has a distributor, which I believe was still in use in 84, you can ****** the timing just until the pinging goes away.

1992 Cadillac Deville Sedan

i have two codes on my 92 cadillac sadan deville that read e 12 and e 96. i understand what they both mean. e12 is 'no distributor signal', and the other e 96 is 'torque convertor is overstrewsed'. i know that the toruque convertor is a big project itself, so im goin to send that into the professionals. but i might be able to fix the distributor, if it is the cap, or a false ground wire which hopefully it is. there is about 170,000 mi, and have gone threw alot of parts that i installed myself, but im not goin to let her go yet she still got alot of miles to go. i just need help on checking out the distributor cap for replacement.
