Question about 2002 Cadillac Deville

2 Answers

Motor is reving up and then back down

At first I thought it was water in the gas line and was told by the dealership to get the water treatment. It is still doing this. When sitting at a stoplight my engines revs up and then back down. I put the setting on the rpms and it starts at about 700 then drops to 650 then drops to 550 and back to 625.

Can you tell me what might be causing this?

Thanks

    This is a 2002 Cadillac Sedan Deville with I think a 4.3 or 4.2 Northstar V8 engine

    Well, I went to the Cadillac dealer and had this checked out. They ran the DTC Check and came up with P0171/P0174 which was a torn intake boot. So they installed a new one, which cost me $500 (the part was $30 and the rest labor), but it runs so smooth I can't even hear the motor running.



    Thanks for your help.

    What is the make ,model, and engine size. These symptoms could be a misfire or an air/ vacuum leak.Possibly EGR related

Torn intake boot on 2000+ Northstar requires removal of intake manifold along with injectors-about 4 hour job not just 2 clamps as suggested. New seals required could also run past $100 so $500 is not unreasonable

More possible suggestions...coolant temputature sensor .. TPS or even mass airflow sensor ... you should get codes checked for soft codes and real time monitoring to see if sensors are in their proper range /window ... please advise once you have it tested

Why does the system fuel light keep coming on my Toyota landcruiser workmate 70 series 2009 year car


Check the lines good and change the fuel filters. Look for line leaks, holes, or poor fittings on all ends. You may be sucking in debris within the lines and this could be a problem. Also water in the lines or bad gas can damage filter and pumps. Use Gas additives.

It would be good to know the make, year and model of the van to do a diagnosis. I'll take a stab in the dark, High reving could be caused by a faulty idle air control motor, common on a Ford. Is the Service Engine Soon light on? A malfuntioning Throttle position sensor will cause a high idle. I wish I had more info so I could be of help, Good luck, Gary

Gas smell in oil


The white strip of fluid on the oil is a slight amount of coolant getting into the oil . The water could be from condensation on the dip stick. I would drain the oil and just put regular recommended oil in it with a new filter. I would pull the spark plugs and check for any coolant or oil residue on them.Then drive the vehicle a little and check the performance. If there is unusual noise from the engine then or blue smoke from the tailpipe the engine has internal damage.

Assuming the engine performance stays the same. There could be a fuel injector sticking intermitantly.

Idle goes nuts while warming up and now while driving....any help


check your throttle position sensor. this has nothing to do with your water pump. when the TPS goes out it does what your talking about. it revs up and down all the time. it is fairly easy to replace
