Cadillac Eldorado TCC Inop Due to Internal Transmission Fault
Cadillac Eldorado Problem
Average Mileage: 85,000 mi (74,000 mi - 96,000 mi)

After purchasing this vehicle I was driving back home and I realized that the Service engine soon light was on. I had it checked and it turns out that the Transmission clutch is not working properly because the Transmission Solenoid is not functioning. This is a common problem with All Cadillacs with the NorthStar Engine. It cost about $2500 to repair the problem but, at that price you can buy a remanufactured Transmission from GM or Cadillac with a 3 year warranty, and don't forget to add an additional $1200 for parts and labor. I estimate you will end up Spending $3500 - $4000 on repairing this problem.
