Alright caddy lovers I own a 1997 Deville and I just got hit with a issue idk if it’s big or small or what but no check engine light is on. Okay so when I go start my car up I have to give it some gas and keep my foot there for a little minute or my car will turn off. It sounds as if it turns off like either not getting enough juice from battery or not getting enough gas to engine. But everytime I start it up I have to press the gas or it will cut off on me and nothing is wrong with my car I mean besides this everything is good no problems I am going to need a new belt soon for engine but I know that can’t be the problem. So please somebody help me out idk what’s wrong with her like I said there isn’t any check engine light on and I just did tune up like 4 months ago. Thank you for your time. Smooth riddin. Also once not too long after this issue popped up I was driving and it felt like when I press the gas to speed up it wasn’t catching or something and then the car shook real ugly for like 1 minute so I stopped and pulled over but no check light came on or anything and it hasn’t happened since?!?!?
Hi all. I know this has been brought up before but could use a few opinions. I have had 3 Caddys in a row with the gas gauge problem, All 3 go nuts under half a tank, First was 1 99 Deville, second was 01 eldo, third and current is my 97 Deville. I am tempted to cut the wire for now at the pump so it reads full all the time til I can fix it. I have tried chevron techron multiple times, even multiple tanks in a row. I have tried other (cleaners) and nothing works. Anything under about 11 gallons and the gauge jumps to full, then seconds later empty, Of course it dings and the message comes up. The part to fix the sender is 100.00 A whole pump unit is about 200.00 I am torn as to whether to replace the whole unit or to take my chances on just replacing the sender part. For now I have been just filling it twice a week and have been reading the fuel used. My 96 Never did this, my 97 SLS luckily has never done this, but from what I hear it is a very common problem. I am changing the pump unit on the 97 SLS because the pump got loud and is bad. I was thinking about putting the sender from the SLS on the Deville but would hate to waste my time. Would be very nice if they had the access over the tank. Would save me from having to pull 2 tanks down.
