Elvira Links

RESEARCH:

ELVIRA LINKS including vendor sites for parts and tools as well as sites for GM organizations

HISTORY:

ENHANCEMENT LOG includes log entries of repairs and enhancements between the time of arrival in Florida and the present.

MAINTENANCE:

ELVIRA MAINTENANCE Ever changing detailing, oil change, lube, etc. maintenance routines developed for Elvira based on what Cadillac will allow, including required tools, materials and procedures.

When I decided on a performance Caddy, I went to the local dealer in hope of finding an available car. It was not to be. At the time, Only two  ATS-V Coupes were located in the State of Florida and only one of those was close enough to what I wanted to be acceptable but it was not available. I had to initiate a build order. The estimated time to build and deliver Elvira was six to eight weeks. With that time on my hands, I began to comb the Intarweb for info on the car I had ordered. There are fewer links for The performance Caddys than for old trucks and Jeeps but they are out there. There is some duplication of BillyBob's TRUCK LINKS and Renegade's JEEP LINKS here for convenience (where those links could also apply to Elvira).

TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline
http://www.toptiergas.com/
The intention of the TOP TIER™ Detergent Gasoline standards is to create a winning situation for gasoline retailers, auto manufacturers and drivers. Currently, many gasoline retailers provide fuels with lower-quality additive packages that can build up deposits on fuel injectors and on intake valves. Others can build up deposits in combustion chambers and may lead to intake valve sticking. These lower levels of additives can have negative impacts on engine performance and vehicle responsiveness.
