1984 cadillac eldorado flywheel repair

My daughter has been told that it is going to take 3000 dollars to replace the flywheel in her 84 eldorado because they need to lift the motor. Is this true. The part was cheap but we don't know who to trust to fix it.

Yes obviously they will need to lift the motor because the flywheel is smack-dab in between the torque converte and motor, could actually do it yourself with the right tools ( Engine hoist, air compressor , air tools, and sockets, and or course torque wrenches to properly mount the flywheel back to manufacturer specs) but I do believe 3 Grand is way higher then your average shop. Look for shops with Mexicans they have O.K. service for a good price. Reasonable price is in between $700 and $1200 GOOD LUCK!!

"Service Soon" light came on in my 1984 Cadillac Eldorado after it came out of an oil change. It is running great. How do I get it to go out?

Push both OFF and WARM buttons together (and hold for 5 sec.) on the A/C control panel. Read what codes appear . It can be cleared by pushing OFF and HI the same way. Hope this helps

Left rear blinker and break light stopped working 84 eldorado

See if you can locate a wiring diagram for your vehicle. I have a 92 Seville and the wiring for the brakes and blinkers runs through the turn signal switch. The switch generally goes bad just from everyday use. They lose connection and you get intermittent problems (much like yours). Consult a wiring diagram, if they do run through the switch then I would recommend replacing that. Start there. Cheers.
