its a 1981 6.0 its the only year it had this set up where it can run on 4 / 6 / 8 that has been turned off and just runs on all 8 now as they had so many probs when they where new

but unlike the 1980 year with same 6.0 its got a load of emissions control stuff egr valve and so on and a fuel injection set up that aint to great ether

i think this could be where the faults are

only cadillac fourm is in usa and tbh there no help on there

i asked is it possable to change to a carb set up and all i got is why would you want to ?

ive got a good basic knowledge of cars but i aint a mechanic ive rebuilt a 2.8i capri and ill get stuck in but this car is so differnt to anything thing else ive had i dont really know what im doing with it

but thanks for any help you could give but really id just like to do lazy op and book it in some where pick it up a week later fixed before it drives me crazy
