467Re: Diesel Cadillacs?
- Apr 10, 2003I had a Cutlass with one of those 5.7 diesels in it, and had
nothing but problems. It was a beautiful car that I sold for $200 in
lieu of putting a gas engine in it.
I wouldn't want any diesel engine that didn't have a
turbocharger. Without it, you just can't get enough air into them to
make power. I remember all too well getting tailgated going up hills
at 30 mph, engine chattering like a rollercoaster going up a track.
The only good thing about the diesel was that you could blast
tailgaters with a smokescreen. I used to collect "smoking vehicle
warnings" that I got in the mail from the MVD.
