Have 1989 CADILLAC DEVILLE ,WAS RUNNING FINE BUT REPLACED THEMOSTAT AND NOW SOUNDS LIKE TRYING TO START BUT NOT . DONT NOW IF FUEL PUMP NEEDS TO BE RESET OR WHERE ITS AT ON CAR? ANBODY HELP THANKS


the fuel pump is inside the tank. did the distributor cap get wet when you were installing the thermostat? check to see if the wires are pluged into the distributor cap well. if you use a fuel pressure gage you will be able to determine if the fuel pump is working.

1992 Cadillac Deville Sedan


i have two codes on my 92 cadillac sadan deville that read e 12 and e 96. i understand what they both mean. e12 is 'no distributor signal', and the other e 96 is 'torque convertor is overstrewsed'. i know that the toruque convertor is a big project itself, so im goin to send that into the professionals. but i might be able to fix the distributor, if it is the cap, or a false ground wire which hopefully it is. there is about 170,000 mi, and have gone threw alot of parts that i installed myself, but im not goin to let her go yet she still got alot of miles to go. i just need help on checking out the distributor cap for replacement.

1990 deville distributor


With a car that year, the only replaceable item is the rotor button. The cap itself is also replaceable. If the gear itself gets damaged, you have to replace the whole thing.
