SOURCE: where is 98 eldorado cadillac 4.6 starter located?

It is located in the valley between the cylinders. You can loosen the throtle body, all the bolts holding the intake manifold and then lift the manifols just enough without disturbing the fuel rail to gain access from the lest side of the car to the right. This can be done with common tools and the gaskets on the manifold and TB can be reused if not damaged.

SOURCE: 2003 Cadillac CTS - the car won't shift from park

sounds like you have a bad brkae light switch, which is located on the brake pedal assembly. a bad switch will not let you shift out of park and you will not have any brake lights as the car does not recognize that the pedal is being pushed and brakes engaged. easy to replace switch if you are handy, if not this is a inexpensive repair at any mechanic. hope this was helpful is so please rate 4 thumbs.

Where can I get a diagram of the intake manifold runner control?

Do a Web search under the terms (Your make, model, year vehicle) intake manifold runner. Or intake runner control solenoids, rods, etc. You may find Youtube videos.

The runners are sandwiched under or inside the intake manifold. Some had plastic clips which crumbled and the operating rods became disconnected. Some runners stuck too bad for the rods to move them.

Ford F140 4.2 Do Engine codes P0305, P0306, and P1518 relate to each other

I am assuming you mean F150 truck.
The answer is maybe.
Code 305 and 306 are missfire codes for cylinders 5 and 6.
Code 1518 is for a problem with the intake manifold runner control which could cause the other two codes.

P1518 FORD Description The Intake Manifold Runner Control (IMRC) is monitored for failure during continuous or key ON engine OFF self-test.
Possible causes - Intake Manifold Runner Control (IMRC) harness is open or shorted
- Intake Manifold Runner Control (IMRC) circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Intake Manifold Runner Control (IMRC) actuator
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)

Check engine light on, Code P 2004 Nissan Altima 2.5

I can tell you what it is and about where it is, but I have not worked on that engine before.

The intake runner should be between the intake manifold and the cylinder head. It is like a sliding shutter. You can sometimes clean them, but they can be replaced. Look online for photos by autoparts stores. This will explain things better if you see it.

Why they put them on cars? The operating range for intake manifolds is limited. Manifolds are shaped for performance or economy. With movable shutters inside the manifold you get a manifold that will do both jobs.

How are they activated? Most use Vacuum controls to move rods that move the vanes or shutters in the runner. In your case, the manifold runner activated and is stuck open. Now you can look at whether the control rod popped off or the activating Vacuum diaphram is jammed. But most use Vacuum power to open and flow to close them.

Your Maker is not alone in using these devices. Other makers have similar problems with their operation. Sometimes soot can build up and they fail to move.

I hope my solution is useful.
