Sounds like no fuel pressure, I had the same problem . theres a molded fuel line between the pump and sending unit inside the tank that was split. , Basically I had a fuel leak inside the gas tank, 2 test pressure the connection is on the fuel rail behind the motor , it should be 40-50 psi

Fuel injection system will not open up on a 2000 Cadillac Catera, it takes about 15 minutes before it will smooth out.


If it starts and runs and the check engine light isn't on then the fuek injection may not be the problem these cars are bad about the valve cover gaskets leaking and the spark plug wells where the wires connect to the plugs get submered in oil the engine will miss and stumble and not rev up until warmed up and may still stumble on hard aceleration even after warmed up. Low fuel pressure will cause almost the same thing as it will be have to checked also.n out sparkpuugs will also do the same thing

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.
