califdad4: the 82 engine was the better engine! My parents had a 81 RIviera diesel, they bought it new, and Mom drove it till 2001 and donated it, it was needing new glow plugs. She replaced it used SeVille STS
midnitesquirldog1: Great engine when well taken care of, I had one it went bad it had 230,000 miles on it i just dropped in a 1971 Oldsmobile 350 gas engine it was $1,800 for everything all rebuilt, i would of replaced it with a replacement diesel 350 but they wanted $3,500 for the rebuilt engine.
Shane Spencer: The Diesel-powered Cadillacs are extremely rare...most Cadillacs of the time had their own V8 engines, like a 500 CID, a 425 CID, an HT 4100 with digital fuel injection, a 4.5L and a 4.9L, both having fuel injection.
bigfoot060775: I had a 1983 Oldsmobile Delta 88 with that 5.7l Diesel which I had inherited from my grandparents. It had 208k miles before reaching catastrophic failure in 1997. I wanted to have it rebuilt, but no mechanic really wanted to do it.
gatewaysolo104: lifters sound noisy
Steve Holsten: I'd give my eye teeth to have one just like it; especially with the DX engine.
Alexander S: Thank you for sharing! I am looking buying a 1982 Cadillac Sedan Deville Diesel. It has 77k with the replacement Mr. Goodwrench engine. Any tips for what I should look for under the hood to make sure its in decent shape? If I get this car I will want to do all of the mods that you shared here. Thanks!
Brandon Long: very good!!!!! ,your exactly right. very good info. i just finished rebuilding mine!! ,love it!!!
Tim: Sounds immense!
Will C: Dude u rock for having that in that cond. Your right about the number of those that got trashed/wasted. I think they made FAR fewer of those than the 4100s. Wonder why gm used the weak 200 4R trans & not a TH 350/400? That tranny can get torn up from the 4.3 chevy truck engine. So who knows why they used it with the V8s. But looks like u eliminated most of the common issues. happy motoring. I think fuel economy was close to 30mpg for the folks wondering.
Spencer Martin: what kinda milage does this thing get?
d barboza: They also came with the Craftsman diesel that was pretty good.
thunderstorms06: I remember standing next to the owner of my local Cadillac dealership and him showing me one of these cars brand new,I wish id bought one wrapped it in plastic n stored it away till i found someone who knew how to do all these mods with a fresh new one....
Joe Moorman: That's like looking at a Triumph Stag and saying the Europeans don't know how to make good gasoline engines.
Elias Rella: Hey how much do these ones go for now a days?
Richard Gray: I currently have this 82 Cad Diesl. as you mentioned the head bolt problem which I current have. I'm having trouble finding the right head bolts? The replacements that I've found say they don't have the studs on top. So....question: is it nesessary to have the bolts with the studs on top? Do you know where to find them? Oh by the way I enjoyed listening to your vid...POS lol. very good. this particular cadillac is in mint condition with 50,000 orignal miles. Thanks
Corvus Casull: Yes they did, well at least here in the 'States.
I've always had an eye for the off-kilter; the weird part of the world has always been far more fun and interesting than the generic boardwalk.
Thanks for the kind words.
bisquik3006: Kudo's to you for thinking outside the box. GM really tarnished the reputation for diesel engines. Either way, I have to appreciate anything "odd ball".
san379: more vids in color..walk around
RetroGuy76: True! I had mine checked out by an "older" mechanic at the dealer & he said mine doesn't even need the GM pellets yet. These engines (esp. the power) get a bad rap by younger dudes because they are used to 0 to 60 in 10 seconds! LOL. People have to remember back then luxury cars were built for comfort, not speed, & the national speed limit was 55. I know a guy who's dad bought an 84 coupe with the HT4100 new & he had 175,000 miles on it & not one bit of trouble. Its all about maintenance.
18jotesch: It really sucks to literally be a member of the band in the town just south of Pulaski. We never get to do stuff like this and our own community loves this band more than our own. It really is a shame to live in Seymour WI, yet still the home of the hamburger. AbbieJolie: A disturbing trend in this year's Holiday Palettes for me is too many browns and neutrals and not enough fun colors. Good thing I bought the U D Electric Pallette! I have a cool skin tone and I like brown as a wood stain and not much else. FashionableBeauty: Nice items Dominic Ouellette: cobalt won! Gloria Nelly Foronda Sánchez: gas de mecos ni se mueven Carlos Sandess: Eu mano esse gabinete é top da para adaptar coolers em cima, vc pega marca as furação dos coolers depois vc pega 2 CDs marca na parte de cima aonde vc marco a furação dos coolers, dai vc pega a makita e corta dai vai fica certinho para vc colocar os coolers em cima meu qualquer gabinete fica certinho hehehehe. Satria Nugraha: it's weird that he has a map
