Actually it should be very simple... There are 4 Nuts on the carburater which you can loosen. There are some linkages from Carb to the gas pedal, Choke...They need to be remove.. but do it as to remember how to put it back when installing a new one.
Now make sure they give you a new fiber/asbestos gasket. This is important.. If it leaks... you will not get good gas milage
once the carb is on.. tighten all 4 nuts, do not overtight them, but tighten them

How to install a freeze plug in a 1995 eldorado cadllica northstar engine


I have 15 yrs experience as a professional automotive tech and all I have to say is good luck!! If a freeze plug is your only problem with the car then God has truly blessed you!! Really really make sure its a freeze plug before you continue!! I have more than 20 northstar cadillacs on my lot and ALL of them have junk motors!! The Northstar is the biggest mistake GM ever made...signified by 4 separate design changes in the first 5 yrs of production. They are plagued with cooling system and head gasket problems and have more than one major flaws in design! You really want to be sure its not a head gasket problem before proceeding because there is no quick fix for it and it will cost as much as a new engine to fix it...

Idles high, running temperature is 225 degrees and have to push on accelerator to start


hi,

are you familiar with the northstar engine?
first generation northstars are notorious for this kind of thing..
the engine is prone for metal fatigue/ warping of the heads, and stripped out head bolts, do you have documentation and service history for it?
these engines need a good mechanic to inspect and replace head bolts which strip out and need fixing. I will post a link at the bottom
once the engine is repaired correctly it should last a good long time
have it fixed correctly. I think someone has turned up the idle knob in an attempt to get the coolant flowing quicker to keep it cool.
its worth repairing if you have the money..

Heater blower install for 1997 cadillac eldorado


The solution is more than likely a new blower motor. Replacing this blower motor is no small task. I am in the process of doing it, but there is so little wiggle room that I suspect that if a cadillac mechanic does this job, they will jack up the engine/transaxle to make room. The motor itself is not cheap either, a replacement Delco is well over $200. I will let you know if my new motor install works.
