Question about 1995 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

No Spark I just replace a 4.9L in my 1995 DeVille. I have checked and double checked all connections and replaced all of the spark related components but still no spark. I have spoken with the local dealership and a shop specializing in electrical and they don't have an idea what it could be. If you could tell me if I may have missed anything I would appreciate it.

1995 geo metro humid weather starting problems 3 cylinder

Next time it doesn't start, spray your plug wires and distributor cap with WD40. If it fires right up replace your plug wires. I had the same problem with my 3 cyl 1.0L .

To get a tune up on m 95 cadillac deville what parts do I need.

I would start by getting spark plugs and spark plug wires. And find out (through part store)what the gap is for your plugs.Then i would replace the cap and rotor and check your air filter. If you have over 60,000 miles i would also change the trans.filter and fluid

Spark plugs
Spark plug wires
Distributer cap
Rotor (if applicable)
Air Filter ?

My 1995 Deville has a idling issue, replaced new water pump, map sensor and idle control valve...still not fixed. .any sugestions??

Many times this issue can be caused by a dirty air filter, I would start there if you already
haven't done so.

Also, if you haven't recently changed your spark plugs and wires you may consider pulling
out atleast one spark plug to look at its condition.

No spark or fuel in a 1991 explorer

Concerning the fuel issue, i would check these components listed below for faults and possible damage as well. any damage or apparent malfunctions in these specific devices will disrupt normal fuel flow in this vehicle. The list follows.

1. Inspect the Fuel Filter-- This filter may be clogged or dirty. replace if faulty.
2. Inspect the fuel pump relay-- This relay may be faulty and not functioning at this time. it will cut of the flow of fuel if so.
3. Inspect the Fuel Injector Pressure Regulator-- This may be a problem spot as well if it becomes unstable and unable to regulate the pressure.
4. Inspect the fuel pump-- This device actually pumps the fuel needed for operation. if its not working, it will disrupt the flow of fuel to the injection system as well.
5. Another problem spot will be the Engine Control Computer-- This device is vital to proper spark and fuel operation. if its malfunctioning, it will affect spark and fuel flow. check accordingly for faults. also know as the ECM/PCM.
6. Inspect the Fuel pump strainer--- This device could be clogged or dirty as well. replace if found to be dirty or clogged.

Concerning the Spark-- This issue can encompass many problem areas in the engine compartment. One common issue with a non spark issue would be the distributor cap or ignition coil. most newer vehicles will have the coil and older models will have the distributor cap design. I would check the distributor, if installed for a cracked cap or burned components as well. if your model has a coil ignition system, i would test its operational value as well. Also, check the Wireset as well.

Check the spark plug wires for worn or damage insulation. make sure they are connected to the plugs securely and tight.

Inspect the ignition switch for broken connections. this switch, if faulty, can affect proper ignition timing and spark as well. Your vehicle has a distributorless system and i will address the proper procedure that will allow proper testing results.

The distributorless ignition system used by 1991-94 2.3L and 4.0L, and all 1995-99 engines is referred to as the Electronic Ignition (EI) system. It eliminates the conventional distributor by utilizing multiple ignition coils instead. The EI system consists of the following components:

Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor Ignition Control Module (ICM) (EEC-IV systems only) Ignition coil(s) The spark angle portion of the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) Related wiring

I recommend testing all EI system components for faults. if there is a fault an any of the EI system devices, it will disrupt the ignition system and it will cause a non spark issue that will result in a non start.

Please rate and god bless:)

1989 Deville 4.5 TBI No start condition. I need a step by step Cadillac, or GM diagnostic procedure to double check what I have done. I have replaced: 4 of eight spark plugs that were fowled replaced...

A faulty map sensor will make it run rich and so will a bad or misadjusted TPS but it should try to crank. Check mat sensor. A stopped up converter will do this to.

1995 cadillac deville "won't start"

When you disconnect a spark plug wire, do you get spark when you crank the engine over?
If so,
When you turn the key to the "run" position (do not crank) do you here the fuel pump run for 2 - 3 seconds?
Let me know.
