Question about 1991 Cadillac DeVille

1991 Cadillac Sedan Deville idling rough

Starts and runs fine as long as you don't stop. Once you stop and let idle for a couple of minutes the engine light comes on and the engine begins to run very rough. Will run great with lots of power as long as you are driving. Can restart and drive and it starts the same cylcle again.

SOURCE: rough idle after warm up

I'd take a look at the temp sender...the engines computer may be "thinking" the engine is still cold when it's not. That would cause it run rich (and rough) after it's warmed up. Generally the sender can be tested with an ordinary volt/ohmeter but you will need the specifications available in most inexpensive manuals. As with any complicated electronics system, I can only give you my best guess, without the luxury of doing any hands-on testing myself.
Good Luck!!

SOURCE: 95 cadillac eldorado engine stalls rough idle check engine light is on

I have a 95 eldorado that is starting hard and idling rough. Also noticed gas pedal fluctuating. I have been told it is the Fuel Pressure Regulator. Does that sound reasonable?

SOURCE: Please help: 1992 Cadillac Deville:

E13: right bank O2 sensor, no data
F48: low refrigerant level in A/C system

Neither of these is likely to cause rough idle, but I would change the sensor.
If that cure it, great.

If not, make sure the vacuum hose on the fuel pressure regulator (at end of fuel rail) is tight at both ends and not cracked or leaking. Then pull the vacuum hose off the regulator and see if there is any fuel in the vacuum hose. If yes, replace regulator.
I also recommend cleaning up the intake side of engine with carb cleaner or equivalent: throttle body, Mass airflow sensor, EGR system, and PCV valve. Make sure EGR valve is operating.

If you have questions, please let me know.

I got an diagnostic and it said the idle air valve is bad.i got it changed but its still runnin rough


A idle speed motor will not cause your engine to run rough.It might idle high or stall. If your engine is running rough check your spark plugs and wires along with your cap and rotor first.
