  1. That is interesting. Ill go into the manual and see if there are any related codes associated with a P0741, thanks
  2. This should be unrelated to a P0741. If it were due to leakage it wouldn't have been affected for sure. But maybe its possible during your investigation of the P0101 code you accidently reset or disturbed (in a good way) the main transmission plug improving its connection. The P0741 sets when the computer detects a greater than 250 rpm slip in the lock up torque converter. Within that main plug are connections for the TCC solenoid. Did you clean any grounds maybe? Keep us updated as to whether or not it comes back
  3. I can't help to think that this is resistance in the power side and not the ground side. Gonna watch your progress.
  4. Its funny you say that, I have a chipmunk problem. Maybe its time for mothballs
  5. This is great to know. And I am glad you got it running again. In all my years this is the first Iv see a filter change solve a no drive in drive condition. Obviously, I know it's possible, but I had never seen it happen before. This is definately solid reasoning to maintain your tranny regularly as I know Cadillac Jim does.
  6. Consider that the motor you are using draws less and puts overall draw into an acceptable range even with a bad relay. Just playing devils advocate here. I dont think the motor you have wired is an ABS motor correct?
  7. @rockfangd If you don't mind what trickle charger do you use?, I just bought one. Ill post details, but I am not fully confident in it based on some reviews I read. I bought it for my generator battery and car battery.
  8. @rockfangd I was doing some reading. They speak of a relay that energizes the motor momentarily. Could the contacts on that relay be burned / charred thereby increasing the draw/resistance so much that the system faults? Have you looked at the relay?
  9. @SteveW Glad to hear you figured it out. I want to add this for future, I found it on AllData Symptoms of Code P0101 Engine stalling Difficulty starting Lack of power Rough idle Causes of Code P0101 Dirty, obstructed, or faulty mass air flow sensor Damaged or disconnected air intake boot (snorkel) Vacuum leak Clogged or improperly installed air filter Clogged catalytic converter / restricted exhaust
  10. @krow So to summarize, you had NO DRIVE, changed the fluid and now all is good? How was the fluid level when there was no drive?
  11. I have replaced the vacuum servo on a 96. To test the servo operation, set the parking brake, You will need a hand operated vacuum pump like a mighty vac with a gage Attach a 24 inch or so hose to the vacuum pump, and attach it to the vacuum servo after you remove its hose. Pump the hand pump, if the servo diaphram is bad, you won't see any pressure show on the gage and the brake won't release and you need to replace the servo. On the other hand, if the brake releases, you have a vacuum supply problem. Check all vacuum lines. I have a vacuum hose diagram some
  12. There is a manual release lever on the inboard side of it. Look under the dash with a flashlight. If you have an owners manual you will find it explained. If you dont have an owners manual PM me your email and Ill send you one.
  13. p0101 "Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit/Performance Malfunction" Code P0101 Definition Mass Air Flow (MAF) Circuit/Performance Check all plugs around the MAF for being damaged or disturbed by the PVC pipe job. Did this happen before you replaced the PVC pipe? What year/model vehicle is this? Try disconnecting and reconnecting the negative battery connection to reboot the PCM. Then see this thread
  14. I hope this helps a little, take a look at this thread and the ones below it https://www.cadillacforums.com/threads/code-c1243-bpmv-pum0p-motor-stalled-this-means-what.66580/
  15. I don't know this system's operation well. But could this be something outside the motor frying the motor? Is it a dc motor driven by PWM?
  16. Try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes then reconnecting.. that will reboot the system in order. Let us know if that helps. Always disconnect the negative cable first.
  17. Anytime I was especially impressed that they knew that if the NS alternator was not properly rebuilt an F code (I think its the F code) shows up, it has to do with the using the proper regulator.
  18. The guru (a GM Northstar Powertrain Engineer) used to say, "drive it like you stole it"!
  19. I have used BBB they do a good reman. I was in their facility on Long island and they are knowledgeable.
  20. Put a fuel presssure gage on it to see exactly what the fuel pressure is with the key on. Its nice that its running, but whats the pressure. Don't parts replace, leave the plugs alone, they won't cause a no start problem Tell us the history of the car was this a sudden problem? Did the car sit for a long time? Did you dump fuel in it from a container that might have water in it? Drain a little fuel using the fuel pressure gage, into a clear glass bottle and let it sit, if water is in there it will separate. Have you checked for codes? Buy a spark tester at the parts
  21. Beautiful car you are lucky to find that with low mileage. It has been said that the head gaskets blow because coolant goes acidic from not being changed, it eats the head gasket and coolant leeches into the headbolt threads and corrodes them via electrolysis weakening the threads and the bolts pull out of the block. We had a Northstar powertrain here for a while and that was GMs finding on the matter. And I am not doubting GMs prognosis, because I have seen aluminum block material turned to dust from electrolysis and acidic coolant would facilitate that. I have since blown
