Engine Q&A 1983 Cadillac DeVille

  • Why does the check engine light come on when I start my DeVille? It’s usually normal for your check engine light to turn on upon ignition. It’s just your DeVille firing up its circuits. The light should go off shortly. Bring your vehicle in if it doesn't.
  • Are Cadillac DeVille engine noises bad? Unusual noises can signal a problem with your Cadillac DeVille engine. Knocking or tapping could be a symptom of low oil. Whistling sounds could mean you have an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing can indicate a loose fan belt, and grinding might be a sign of brake problems rather than engine issues.
  • What could damage a Cadillac engine? [ordered-list-1-item-3-1]Are you unknowingly damaging your Cadillac DeVille engine? Certain driving habits can damage your engine and should be avoided. These habits include 'running on fumes,' flooring the gas pedal while the car is in Park, or slamming the gas pedal while the engine is still cold. Steer clear of these habits to help protect engine performance and efficiency.
  • Can I use water in my Cadillac DeVille radiator? It’s not recommended you put water in your DeVille radiator unless it’s an emergency. Under normal circumstances, use a 50/50 mix of water and coolant or a pre-mixed coolant. But, if you need to keep driving while out of coolant, using water is better than driving with an empty coolant reservoir.
  • What can cause the engine in my DeVille to suddenly stop? Your DeVille car engine could stop suddenly due to low fuel, electrical issues, overheating, a faulty ignition system, mechanical troubles, or sensor problems.
