  1. the battery is new just put it in about a week ago i couldnt see it just sit in the drive way anymore so i took it to a shop got it started in like 5 min's just trying the start it over and over again and then she came alive when i flet like it was going to start i let of the keey and she came to an idle under 1000 rpm the man at the shop said he was not the best guy for a cadillac and said it could be the fule pump does that sound like it could be right the sls is back in my drive way just siting there i would really like to know how to check the codes for the car but i cant find anything online for my year and make.
  2. cool going to give it a try is there anything els that i should try if thats not the problom? One thing at a time. Lets condemn or rule out the FPR first. its a slow crank almost sounds like a misfire or something fowling out it also somkes when cold but clears up with in min's iv been thinking it might be best to just drop it of at the shop but i would hate to i was able to jump the car to a start yesterday and drove it down the road drove really well like nothing was wrong? so what do you guess think i should try
