2002 cad deville cold start problems

Wont start unless you press the gas pedal several times then it acts like its flooded finally it will start, but if you press the gas it will stall unless you let it warm up. once its warm, no problem starting. the idle seems to be ok, so i dont think i have a vacuum leak. i pulled several fuses to check for a blown fuse, then replaced them, when i started the car again the check engine lite came on, the code reader now shows p0102 i thought it might be the cold start module, not 0102 i dont even know where the cold start module is located;; help lost in the cold;

These cars are notorious for intake manifold leaks. This could also be a throttle position sensor. If you have a MIL (check engine light) I would scan it with an OBD II scanner and pull the relevent code off the scanner it will give us a much more accurate direction to proceed

SOURCE: I ran out gas in my 1997 cad deville, put gas in, now wont start

if you were completely out of gas you can prime the car by turning the key forward until just before the starter engages and back off again. do this several times. doing this will allow the fuel pump to prime.

Sounds like it was flooded. Next time it happens. keep gas pedal all the way to the floor and hold until it fires. water in the gas, or just bad gas can do this. But if you pumped it at all while trying to start it if fuel injected can flood it. Let it sit and try again, or keep gas pedal to ground and hold until starts.

2002 Deville keeps stalling out unless gas pedal is pressed.


I would check first for leaky intake gaskets. It is somewhat common on the northstar.

Experienced recent cold weather. Car will not


It's flooded like you say.
If it's really flooded, you'll have to remove plugs and dry them off.
Install them.
Now when you crank engine, hold gas pedal to floor.
That will stop gas from spraying into engine.
You need to get the gas out of the engine for it to start.
Crank for 20-30 seconds with pedal to floor. Do this 3 times waiting 2-3 minutes inbetween cranks.
The starter needs to cool down.
Then after that start normally and see if it will start.
Remember if it will not start after 2 attempts, then the possiblity of it flooding is there and you'll have to clear out the gas by holding the pedal to the floor again.

2002 odyssey injectors flooding


The owner's manual offers these tips on starting in cold weather. First, do not touch the gas pedal and crank the engine for no longer than 15 seconds. If no start, hold the gas pedal halfway down and crank for no longer than 15 seconds. If no start, hold gas pedal all the way down and crank for 15 seconds. If no start, hold gas pedal halfway down and crank for 15 seconds. During any one of the start attempts with the gas pedal part/all the way down, if the engine should start, slowly release the pedal so the engine will not race. Remember that fuel does not atomize as easily in cold weather and can be a problem.

1998 Chrysler Concorde Starting Problem


First of all, you should never touch the gas when starting it, on a fuel injected engine. Whether engine is cold, or warmed up, you shouldn't touch gas pedal. That was o.k. years back when carburetors were used, but not with fuel injection. Yes you will cause flooding especially when warmed up. Now there is a good chance you have a sensor or something acting up, but I'm guessing they checked for that when checking battery problem. You may be able to check for codes by cycling key, have yoou tried that, or had codes read yet?

Real car problem


how many miles on it? if over 20k replace plugs. look into replacing wires too. oem or performance wires. and youre coil packs might be going bad too. take them off and check the back side to see if you have discoloration. all together youre looking to spend about $500. but you could probably get away with just the plugs for now. and if its still under warranty you can get it all done for free by a dealership.
