My son has this same car with the same problem. So far after tune up and other process of illimination, the problem points to the catalytic converter. If it is clogged you will get this problem with the rough idle and stalling. Look under the car at night after running it and see if the catalytic glows red. If so you need a new one. Hope this helps.

I have a 1994 Cadillac Eldorado and every time i start it the car has rough Idle and the Idle fluctuate's. I also can feel it in the gas pedal when the car is doing this I tried replacing the throttle body sensor but it still does it I also was told it was the Idle error sensor. So instead of spending the unecessary money again I thought I would go online and see if anyone could help me with this problem.

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?

94 cadillac eldorado fuel filter replacement


It could be a fuel problem, but in most cases the rough running would continue at road speed.
You could certainly change the fuel filter and see what happens.
A rough idle but no problems on the road would point to a vac problem or maybe a burnt valve. A fuel or ignition problem would be at most speeds including when you put the engine under a load.
Its possible to have a faulty injector on one cylinder that is bad enough to cause a miss at idle but smooth out on the road, but that is a rare occurance.

Check oil level Light on 95 Cadillac eldorado


Did you check your oil level? If the oil level is OK and the light will not shut off, check the connector at the oil level sensor. It is located in the side of the engine oil pan. If the connector and wires are OK, then you may need to replace the sensor. It simply screws out of the oil pan, but you will most likely lose a little oil in the process, so be sure to use a drain pan.

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.

I have a 1990 cadillac eldorado when i am at a light it idles rough what is it


Hello, This problem needs step by step diagnosis: The rough idle can be caused by several things: Spark plugs, Spark plug wires. Distributor rotor and cap. Bad fuel injectors (check Resistance of injectors (12 - 16 ohms, all injectors should be about the same). Vacuum leak, check this first. If nothing shows up, then do a compression check, all readings on the compression check should be about the same. Hope this helps you out

'95 cadillac eldorado driving and went to pass a car. The engine would rev up to 4000 rpm and car would slowly go. check engine light came on. I parked the car and turned it off. when i restarted the car...


well sounds like the trany is slipping, make sure trany fluid is full and clean, also check engine light will reset when ignition is turned off but if you scan computer a code can be pulled to help in diagnosing this problem. start with checking the fluid and making sure its clean and full. good luck hope this is helpful.

1995 cadillac eldorado revs up by it self


CSP, It sounds like you have a vacuum leak that is causing the IAC ( idle air control ) motor to move in and out trying to control the idle. Check all vacuum hoses on the engine for disconnect, cracked or damaged. If the hoses crack when you bend them, they need to be replaced.
Let me know what you find and we can go from there.
Regards,
