Engine Mechanical problem
1993 Cadillac STS V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 95000 miles
Please see info below and let me know if you have any suggestions.
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?
