Cadillac Fleetwood Problems

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Problems with anti-theft systems using the raised-chip key can prevent the car from starting. The wires in the steering column to the ignition lock cylinder tend to break. The key and ignition lock cylinder should be replaced to correct this condition.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

The auto level ride compressor may fail causing the rear of the vehicle to ride to high or too low.

Engine -- Verified

The engine control module (ECM) electrical grounds on the front of the engine block may have high resistance causing a rough running engine or stalling condition.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

Excessive carbon build up in the engine combustion chambers may be the cause of a smog check failure due to excess NOx emissions. A "top engine" decoarbonization cleaning procedure will commonly correct this concern.

Engine -- Verified

The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Running the engine with a coolant/oil mix may result in engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct this issue.

Cadillac Fleetwood Reviews

i've got 400,000 km on this and still can't imagine ever getting rid of this. some sensors are going now in a domino effect, but still it's the best car ever. the only rust is the back bumper, but since this is canada it's very good. i use crown rust control every year. it's hard to find ww tires for this but pep boys had good tires in wwall in the proper size. can't say enuf about this fabulous car. may keep it forever. while i have a fla. zip code i live in canada most of the time

An excellent highway car with plenty of low end torque. Rides like those old 70's luxo barges but gets 21 MPG highway instead of 8MPG! The self adjusting rear suspension will give out early, install $100.00 air bags in the rear, they work great. Leather upholstery is shot and looking to replace with vinyl. Expect to replace normal wear and tear items but also expect no rust anywhere, a workhourse TBI Chevy 350 engine and mechanically linked TH400 transmission. Parts are available and at a good price.

I'm riding a fleetwood 91 for 6 years now and still love it like the first day, with more than 400000 km the engine is still running smouth and strong, and never failed starting even at -40c (im living in Montreal,Canada).And those who cares about fuel economy, for it is a V8 4.9l engine it's swolowing 11 L/100km on free-way (at 100kmh) and around 14 L/100km in town, considering the high millage it's a good score.
