My car quit running and I can't get it running again until I find this part, or some other workable solution!
Here's the info I posted on Facebook:
I am in DIRE need of the following part for my '93 Cadillac STS. It has been discontinued, and I can't get my car running until I find it!
Pressure Side Seal Kit--GM# 17112862
This is what the mechanic e-mailed me:
"Where fuel supply line connects to fuel injector rail. We need o-ring and retainer clip or 3 o-rings. NOT REPEAT NOT fuel injector o-rings."
Please let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions!
I was never able to find this part, and the mechanic ended matching up an O-ring and, since he didn't have the clip, put in 2 additional o-rings to hold the 1st on in place. It failed after 2 weeks. He said used parts won't work because it is an o-ring. I don't know what to do. One friend said that there was a recall on this part for '93 Cadillacs, and that may be why it is discontinued.
i had my guy look into it and he says that isn't a good part number and that there was a recall (Recall 93V088000: Fuel Lines Defect) for 1993 eldorado and 1993 seville with the 4.6/4.9L engines. Maybe thats why they aren't available.
have the same problem?
