Question about 1994 Cadillac Eldorado

SeaFoam in my 94 Cadillac Eldorado. Bad idea!

I used SeaFoam in my 94 Cadillac Eldorado. I poured 1/3 in the gas tank and a 1/3 through the PCV valve. After this, I had a rough idle, bad acceleration. My brakes don't even work no more! Please help!

I doubt the Sea Foam had anything to do with that. I'd check for a vacuum hose off, especially by the PCV valve. Maybe a broken hose or the PCV valve itself might be stuck. Maybe just put a new one in, they are not that spendy. No vacuum would explain the brakes not working.

94 cadillac eldorado fuel filter replacement


It could be a fuel problem, but in most cases the rough running would continue at road speed.
You could certainly change the fuel filter and see what happens.
A rough idle but no problems on the road would point to a vac problem or maybe a burnt valve. A fuel or ignition problem would be at most speeds including when you put the engine under a load.
Its possible to have a faulty injector on one cylinder that is bad enough to cause a miss at idle but smooth out on the road, but that is a rare occurance.

I have a 1991 GEO Tracker that's not getting gas in the carb...the gas is up to the carb but is not going in to the carb.


Disconnect the carburetor from the gas line, and rebuild it, blowing out the jets with compressed air, and adjusting the float so that it will allow gas to flow into the carburetor bowl.

2001 cadillac eldorado, gas guage goes to full


to test if its the float in the gas tank, use a rubber hamer and hits 2-3 times than check guage. If the level is still wrong its the guage.

How to use seafoam on Z32 (1990. nonturbo)? I dont know how to use on vacuum line ?


there are multiple ways to use seafoam on a z32:
gas tank- just add into gas tank to clean injectors, fuel lines, remove deposits from tank itself and clean the valves.
throttle bodies- while leaving the maf sensor on the intake plugged in remove the throttle body hoses one at a time and SLOWLY pour in a little bit of seafoam as a friend revs to about 2k rpms. hold onto the can because there will be suction that can pull the can into the intake. (essentially this is a vacuum approach.
oil- add whole can to oil through the oil cap. run for about 50 miles and change oil. the longer you leave it in the more it will clean things.

depending on your reasoning for wanting to seafoam it the method that would work best varies.
for ticking lifters- through the oil as the ticking sound is a blocked check valve in one of the lifters causing it to slap against the camshaft.
(wynns hydraulic valve lifter treatment from the uk works wonders too)

for cleaning injectors- through gas

just for an engine flush id put half in oil and half in gas run for 50 or so miles and then do an oil change. the gas will take care of itself.

hope this helps...

2002 eldorado ESC- gas gauges stays on full


Not a fuse.There is no fuse for the level sensor.These are known for fuel level sensors being bad.Sometimes they will leave a code and sometimes not.You can check codes and see if you have a fuel level sensor code.The other thing you can do is check the connections and make sure they are clean and on securely.If you find that the level sensor is bad.Then it is easier to replace if the fuel in the tank is as low as possible for easier removal of the fuel tank.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Bogs down on acceleration


buy 2 fuel filters. buy can of SEAFOAM at parts store. use 1 f filter to replace old one(you'll probably see old looking gas, with an odor).Pour SEAFOAM into tank. fill up with PREMIUM gas. after about 100 miles change out fuel filter 1 last time..add SEAFOAM every 3-5000 miles and you should be fine. the ethanol in the gas turns to goop and adds water to your fuel, and puts carbon on your valves and through out your emission and fuel system. The ethanol will be alright as long as you follow these instructions. and the SEAFOAM will keep you from having line freeze up in the cold months ahead, and will give you better gas mileage. good luck.

1989 Cadillac Eldorado dies right after I start it


you could see if you have a friend that could help you bye starting the car for you and you need to un hook the top of air box as if you were going to change the breather take a small coke bottle and pour about 1 cup of gas in your bottle hold your breather hose up and pour about 1/2 shot glass gas down the hose and see if that alows it to continue to run if it does you may have a bad or weak fuel pump but I will warn you to be careful when dealing with gasoline do not go to overboard use your best judgement
