The problem could be either one. To find out jump start the engine, with engine still running disconnect the positive battery cable. If the engine dies the alternator is bad. If the engine continues to run the alternator is working.

1 have a 1986 caddilac deville i have to jump start it everyday it runs fine after the jump start but soon as i cut the car off it wont start anymore until i jump it again what do you think is the problem


Have you checked your battery???
A bad battery will not hold a charge. When you jump it to start it it will then keep running on the power produced by your alternator.The alternator will be trying to charge your battery but will not be able to if your battery is bad.

95 sedan deville wont start and says fuel low with gas in tank


I'd start by tracing the fuel supply and return lines from the gas tank to the engine compartment. Make sure that they are free of kinks or other damage.

Next, check the fuse box and make sure there is power to the fuel pump. Trace the electrical connections leaving the fuel tank and make sure they weren't torn or otherwise damaged by the tire tread.

Hope this helps and good luck!

Engine not getting gas


Without crawling inderneath our car to look, I'd say the tire hit your fuel tank and dented it or tore a hole in it. The fuel pump and fuel guagesending unit are in the fuel tank, and the pump itself sits pretty much at the bottom of the tank. If the chunk of tire put a big enough dent in the tank, it could dislodge the pump or put it in a spot where it would not pick up any fuel. I once hit a racoon that I couldn't avoid and it ripped the muffler clear off my car. Highway speeds and decent sized objects can cause some pretty serious damage to cars.
