You have no idea of what you have or what you are doing, but ask question. When answer received, you insult. Strange logic. I really like the "drive with no brakes" because too cheap for the $5 wheel cylinder.I guess you weren't listening very well I have this issue with my children too, "issues with diesels during that ERA( Google it if you don't know what that means) were caused by water"
I guess I could just run to an auto parts store and ask for a rare seal for the rear drum cylinder for a 30 year old car and they will just whip one out of there ass, if only I had thought of that...
It has an OBD port which means it has a on board diagnostic system, why the hell wouldn't I use it?
If you have nothing to say that helps me with my problems you need not reply! Ignorance is fixable stupidity is eternal!
Got links for that part? What is your source? thought so!!! People just can't whip a 30 year old car part out of there ass, try pulling your head out of yours and you would realize this.You have no idea of what you have or what you are doing, but ask question. When answer received, you insult. Strange logic. I really like the "drive with no brakes" because too cheap for the $5 wheel cylinder.
Hey thanks for the info on the drum brake cylinder, there are a lot of different models for bendix and wagner any idea of the specific SKU # of the one that would fit the Ciera? I was able to scrounge up enough parts to cap the one bad rear cylinder so I am able to get on the road with it as of now. The auto parts stores within my county(and adjacent ones) don't have them or can't get them because they stopped supporting these cars years ago. They can't even get me a fuel filter but I found a different online source for that anyway. As previously stated I have no service engine soon light so the paper clip check is out of the question, and you have to have that specific cars year port in order to use a port scanner, now that I am on the road I will be able to hit up some of the auto part stores to see if any of them do, however unlikely.EVIL..................A quality made in USA Wagner or Bendix rear drum brake wheel cylinder is about $25 bucks. Vato zone and other places sell the china specials for around $20.
They are not rare and avail. at almost any parts house because GM used them for years on many different models. I just replaced one in my 84 Z-28.
To check for codes and you should have a OBD connector since its a 83.................

I was expecting (and hoping) GM would take the V6 diesel from PSA since PSA stopped the engine partnership with Ford after the deal with GM. Mind you that V6 diesel has already been used in the Jaguar, so it is powerful and refined enough to propel a Cadillac I would say. I do expect further refinements to make it at least as smooth as a BMW diesel.I wonder if it would make sense for Cadillac to try to procure BMW diesels for Cadillac's next expansion into Europe or to perhaps utilize the Maserati Ghibli VM Motori 3.0 Diesel.
TRANSMISSION APPLICATIONS (PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG)The majority of those are reserved for 5.7 ltr 350 engines, mine is a 4.3 6 banger not sure if they used the same trans? and I also just discovered you have to pay to search there......You can try it free for 3 months they say!!!....What a joke.
