SOURCE: 1999 Cadillac Catera - 103,000 miles - cranks but no fire

Hello carol...from the symptons you describe more than likely it's the CPS (crankshaft position sensor.)
The CPS is a common problem on Cateras with these symptoms.
The sensor is a magnetic impulse type that sends a signal to the computer, the computer then triggers the fire signal. When the CPS gets weak, dirty or has low voltage the intermitten no starts occur. It will finally result in a no start at all...Please be aware that a lot of caddy dealers will and have overcharged customers for this common problem by ill advise and replaceing uneeded componets.
Good luck...i hope this helps and will fixya up.

My 1996 Cadillac Deville takes too long to start if it hasn't ran for a while, and when it does start, it runs rough for at least 15 seconds.


Check fuel pump & pressure,may be failing

Have you worked on the car at all, in the last couple
years, or just driven it,that could be a factor also

94 Cadillac deville just stopped running suddenly. could smell fuel the past week,


As with any no start situation, you will need to figure out if you are lacking spark or fuel to proceed.
If you have spark to the plugs, you would check the fuel pressure with a gauge. You can try spraying starting fluid into the throttle body to substitute the fuel supply for testing.

1995 cadillac deville vacuum hose diagram


I have a 1995 Cadillac Deville. The car runs great. When Its cold. As soon as it gets hot, if you turn it off it won't start. And when it does start is has no power and spits and sputters to the point where you have to lay on the gas to keep it running. My husband and I have done everything imaginable to this car and it will run great for a day or two then we are right back to square one. Do you have any idea what the problem could be? Please help/

93 Deville, 4.9L, 113k miles. I'm a decent mechanic (have replaced engines, heads, etc.). The latest problem is an intermittent stall. The first time it happened the car was driven for 10 mins then...


Now you can do the Fuel Pump

They seize up mechanically and fail
Electrically

Did you drive with a fuel pressure gauge,
taped to the windshield

Got a good fuel filter

Looking won't help you

Always do some type of testing,
before replacing anything

1991 Cadillac Deville won't engage in gear


the idiots must have towed the the car by the wrong end , this will burn out the transmission in short order. Any car needs to be towed with the drive wheels off the ground, if that is not poss then the drive-shaft has to be removed.
