Water may be drawn into the secondary air injection (AIR) pump causing the pump to fail and the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us there is a kit available from General Motors to relocate the air intake for the pump which should prevent future damage from water intrusion.
A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.

Cadillac Eldorado RecallsGM Recalls 1995-1997 Models Due to Fuel Rail and Return Line Leaks
GM has recalled 1995-1997 Cadillac Deville, Eldorado, Seville, and Oldsmobile Aurora vehicles because the fuel rail and fuel system return line may crack and leak fuel. In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel rail and return line.
The inner tie rod nuts may be loose. This may cause detachment of the steering linkage and a loss of steering control. Dealers will inspect and secure the tie rod nuts. Dealers will also check and adjust the toe setting of the wheel alignment.
Cadillac has recalled 1995 DeVille, Eldorado, and Seville vehicles because the air bags may deploy inadvertently. The air bag sensing and diagnostic module may experience water intrusion, which may cause the system to malfunction. Dealers will clean the exterior case of the sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) and apply a potting compound to the SDM case and electrical connector body.
