Probably the CPS sensor , crank position sensor , first I would have someone turn the key when its not starting and tap on the fuel tank with a rubber mallet , if it starts the fuel pump is going bad

It started dying only sometimes, if you let it set 5 min or so it will start again. Drive it all day runs great then pull into parking lot or stop sign and it dies. Turns over fine but does not fire....


The Catera has a history of stalling/cutoff issues. Many are solved with the replacement of the crankshaft position sensor. It does give the symptoms you describe. I would try that first as it is fairly cheap and easy to replace. If the problem persists after that, you've at least removed one potential possibility.




25597730-01vm304gptfsbcx1qe0tia2u-3-1.jpgThis is the description of the crank sensor from AUTOZONE (cost $44.99 USD)

  • The crankshaft position sensor identifies position of the crankshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM)
  • When not replaced, vehicle may experience no start, hard start, intermittent engine shut down, misfire, engine cut out, excessive fuel consumption, CEL illumination and/or failed emission test
  • Proper alignment, positioning and spacing for faster, easier installation
  • Designed to meet or exceed OE specifications in form, fit and function

Engine shuts down on deceleration


Well 145K is alot of miles, catera's are not that reliable especially after 100K. It sounds like you could have multiple issues but take it to a mechanic asap before it becomes unfixable.

1999 cadillac catera there is oil in the spark plug hole why is that. it was running when it was parked, I was changing the ignition switch.everything seems to be fine, it turns over but will not start.


oil in the spark plug hole means that you need new valve cover gaskets. replace valve cover gaskets and change spaekplugs and the car may start.
