PS If looking to buy a new one I bought Mine at autozone for only $23.00 (yes twenty three dollars). I have read people spending as much as 229.00 for theirs.
I couldn't believe the price considering I just bought one Last witer for my ford festiva and it costed $93.00 (also Autozone).
People whine about the quality of autozone but I have never had problems with them and I use them all the time, although when available I always buy their lifetime warranteed parts!!!!
The Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham was first produced in 1977 and was produced until 1986. The Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham was a model of luxury cars manufactured by the General Motors (GM) corporation.
You need to clean or change your heater core Also check your rad cap to be sure that it holds the pressure change it every 2 years minimum
Stuart Fleetwood was born on 1986-04-23.
Loosen the dash and pull out the complete heater box after you have disconnected the heater hose from the firewall...........
Why my Cadillac 1986 wont start

Call Fleetwood directly. They will send you copies of wiring diagrams free of charge. Just need the Fleetwood serial number from the tag by the side door. Fleetwood was very helpfull and quick to respond to my request.
It's in the heater core housing.
4.5 8 cylinder grown up version of the aluminum HT 4100. Problem plagued cylnder heads and gaskets. Low power, especially move a loaded stretch limo. The only positive feature was a flat floor in the passenger compartment. NOTE- In 1986, Cadillac did notproduce a FWD limo- any around were custom stretched.
Cadillac never made a 400 engine
Nope, no transmission drain plug. You have to drop the pan to drain the fluid and change the filter.
On my 1985 FWD 4.1L Fleetwood, it is behind the engine on top of the exhaust. I would recommend a 7/8" O2 Sensor socket, a one foot 3/8" Drive extension, and a 3/8" ratchet with a long handle, as this will be quite difficult to remove (if mine was like others). When installing the new one, do not tighten it too much.
The starter solenoid on a 1986 Cadillac Coupe Deville is located under the front of the vehicle. It is to the left of the oil pan.
can I buypass the rear heater valve and run two heater 1986 gmc van
check the fuse or the ground on the heater
I'd be surprised if you could find such a thing anywhere. Repair manuals are usually well under $20 at any automotive store, so just bite the bullet and buy one.
To change out the heater-core in a 1986 F-150, you must access the old heater-core through the glove box. You must remove the glove box by removing the screws that hold it in. Once this is accomplished, you must loosen the clamps on the hoses that are connected to the old heater-core unit. Then remove the hoses from the old heater-core and slide the old heater-core out through the opening where the glove box use to be. Install the new one using these instructions in reverse! Presto...installed! Mechanic Man
yes, I do
