Question about 1991 Cadillac Eldorado

1 Answer

1991 Suburban will not accelerate

It starts fine but when I press down on the accelerator nothing happens.
I can accelerate by inching the accelerator down a little at a time.

I can get up to about 55mph this way but very slowly.

A shop supposedly put in a new ignition module a few weeks ago because it would not start. All I could find out myself was that the injectors were not firing.

    I had a new Catalytic Converter put in. No change.
    Further symptom observations:
    Cannot get high RPM's period.
    I can get up to 55, but that's 0 - 55 in 3 minutes, running in overdrive.
    I also noticed my mileage dropped to about 5 mpg.

    Somehow I put this in the wrong area.
    It should be under Suburban.
    I'll try posting this with an update there.

My car wont start


Looks to me like dirt in the fuel pipes. A bad fuel pump or even air in the fuel pipes. If you recently came with an empty fuel tank, this could have caused dirt came in the rules system. Check if fuel is coming to the Carburettor / fuel injection

When I press the pedal to the floor I get nothing.


I'm not to sure on this one but i had a very similar problem with one of my cars it turned out to the the throttle position sensor had gone bad. In my case though everything was fine till the car heated up. Then I never know what was going to happen. Most the time at lights my care would just stall when i hit the gas. I though it was a vacuum hose issue but there was no leek. If the throttle position sensor is not working or is not working like it should then the engine will not respond to the gas pedal being hit. Or will rev real high when not being hit. I hope this helps you and solves you issue!
