first piece of advice is to smash the caps lock key, there is no need to yell

as far as the part, try perusing some j/y's and see if you cant find one

Yes..what engine, fuel injected or carb and what model Cadillac? You shouldnt have any problem finding parts for a Caddy. Also exactly where does this part mount on...the carb? Could you be talking about a heated choke thermostat?
Get back to us. :)

ok no caps. ;D. this is my friends car. its a 78 caddy seville with a 350. its multi port fuel injected. it has what appears to be a throttle body. it does have a tps sensor. looks more like an electric carb. the part in question mounts vertically onto the back of the carb right behind the butterfly ports. it more or less just twist-locks in place and has two cups on both ends of a large spring that sit underneath inside the carb body. i tried all the wrecking yards in town and all the carb and fuel injection shops. zip, zero, nadda !!!. i even tries jc whitney and year one on the internet. tried caddillac and chevrolet to no avail. ::). well if anything he can't say i didn't try. thanks in advance

i realize that these listings are for the whole throttle body/ throttle valve assembly, but if you cant find that little part anywhere else, this may be the way to go.

sorry, best i can do

Do you have the GM part number by any chance?
I believe this is the part you are talking about? Try here at this link and let me know what you find out. :)

FAST IDLE VALVE

The EFI system fast idle valve, installed on the top of the throttle body, consists of a plastic body that houses an electric heater, a spring and plunger, and a temperature sensitive unit.

The fast idle valve is connected electrically to the fuel pump circuit through the ECU. When the engine is started cold, the open valve allows extra air to bypass the throttle valves.

The heater warms the thermal element which expands and forces the spring and plunger toward the air orifice, restricting the flow of extra air and gradually reducing the engine speed to the normal idle rpm. The fast idle valve has no effect after the thermal element reaches about 140°F. The rate at which the valve closes is a function of time and temperature. The warmer the air, the faster the valve closes. At 68°F (20°C) the valve will close in about 90 seconds and at -20°F (-29°C) the valve will require about 5 minutes to close.
