Question about 1985 Cadillac Eldorado

3 Answers

Had the engine in my 1985 cadillac eldorado rebuilt at my auto parts store. it is a 4100 gas engine. they took the engine out and put it back in. unfortunately for me they did not tag the vacuum lines and when they cleaned the engine compartment they destroyed the factory vacumm diagram decal. the car is smoged in california. they gave me a partial refund for the work but refused to correct the vacuum problem. i have looked at several emission manualsbut they do not show very good diagrams. the 4100 uses a dual injector tbi systems. i need a good vacuum hose routing diagram. HELP PLEASE

Here are the vacuum diagrams for a 1985 cadillac Eldorado to help assist you, there are two different vacuum diagrams for that year and engine depending on if the engine has a TVS (Thermal Vacuum Switch) or not. The "THERM AC" is to the
"Thermostatic Air Cleaner". Let me know if you require any further assistance.

Yes routing diagrams are hard to read, see if you can find someone who has the same car or a used car dealer and get pictures of the engine, digital is best you can blow them up on your computer, hope this helps

I have a 1985 cadillac bearitts. i wanna change the oil pan casket. how do i do it


This is going to be a big job! The frame parts are going to be in the way of removing the oil pan. If you really want to try and tackle this by yourself, get a service manual from an auto parts store and they will provide instructions. Sometimes you can raise the engine sufficiently to get the pan to clear the crankshaft without pulling the engine but it is always dangerous to do so.

Best of luck, Jim
