How does Corvette Magnetic Ride Control work?

Very well until something breaks. Then it is usually replaced by regular shock absorbers, because it is too expensive to repair for the slight advantage of the driver being able to adjust the ride quality.

The shock absorber oil has fine metalic particles in it, which when subjected to varying a magnetic field, changes the viscosity of the oil. There by stiffening, or softening the ride as determined by the position of a console mounted switch by which the driver can choose any one of three settings. Firmest to softest.

That's the short explination.

How do you change the fog lamp bulb on 2001 Cadillac STS?

Under the front fender, remove the bottom scrape mat by popping out the clips. You may have to pop the center of the clips out with a screwdriver to remove without breaking. You will only have to remove 3-4 on the side you are replacing. Then pull the scrape mat out of your way, reach up and the bulb will come out with a quarter turn. Then remove from the wiring harness. The bulb is a common GE bulb you can find at any auto store, hardware store, or truck stop. If you go to a dealer, they will tell you its a sealed unit and fender removal is necessary.

Why does the oil in your 1992 Cadillac STS smell like gasoline?

Most likely have leaky fuel injectors. It can be most anything that would causeover rich/ not burning fuel to be pushed past the rings. If the car seams to be running fine (not missfiring) the sparkplugs and wiring is probley ok. Butif under load there is a miss replace both. A good way to tell if you have one or more leakingfuel injectors, the plug for that cyl/injector will be much darker (even black)from the over supply of fuel. I would start off with pulling all plugs and ifany are fouled replace them. Noting witch hole they were in. Run around own for10 or 15 miles, pull the plugs that were fouled and compair it to another holethat was running clean, and if the new plug is starting to get sooty (gettingdark) you found which injector is leaking. If it is not fouling to fast try theinjector cleaner (works best on 1/2 tank or less). You can buy the cleaner fromany auto supply store, takes any ware from 5 to 30 miles before the cleaningstarts to take. If the cleaner does not help replace that injector.

Hope this helps you, Ben Parker, San Jose, Ca

How To

How to turn off the Check engine light on a Cadillac?

I have a 2001 Seville Cadillac that the service Engine soon light comes on after I happen to use certain fuels. It seems that ethanol type fuels are the worst. The light will go out after I put in a higher octane fuel. Not sure this is my complete problem but it always seems to go out in time. I keep wondering if there is some type of fuel additive I could add that would make the light go out faster.

Where do you check transmission fluid level on 97 caddilac sts with northstar engine?

Behind the air filter box (between the air filter box and the firewall) and under the big black elbow that directs air into the engine is a small twist off cap and dip stick. This is the top of your transmission. Be careful when removing the cap and dip stick. It only takes like a 1/4 turn and then the cap shoul be able to lift straight out. The contents are not under pressure and it should be checked while the engine is idling and warm.
