2001 Cadillac Seville jumps when you stop

My car feels like it is going to take off sometimes when I am stopped at a redlight. Almost as tho the engine is gonna jump right out. It also, when you put it in park will reb up very high. The RPM goes up to almost 3. Is there anyone who might have a idea as to what my problem/s might be.

You may need to replace the Throttle Position Sensor. I could not find any Technical Service Bulliten's (TBS) or Recalls that are related to your problem. I will keep looking, but try to change the Throttle Position Sensor.

I have a 2001 cadillac seville sls and sometimes it shuts off when i start to accelerate then i have to put the car in park to start it again and pull off until it does it again.

Could be the crankshaft sensor, or even water in the gas will do this try a can or two of dry gas first. Is the check engine light on? When was it serviced last? Such as tune up, air cleaner, fuel filter, plugs etc.

My 2001 Cadillac Seville STS gets water in rear floor board on driver side from somewhere. How do I stop this from happening and fix problem?

Check the weatherstripping around the driver's side door(s) and window(s). Also, if you have a power sun/moon roof, check the weatherstripping there as well. If these areas check out fine, you may have to go to a shop and put the car on a lift so that the tech can get under it and check for holes or damage on the underside. Water intrusion always ends up in the lowest point, and finding the source is like herding cats: not impossible, but not a lot of fun.

My 2001 cadillac seville quits running at low speeds, like comming to a stop or idling.

Cleaning the EGR valve as well as the Air Intake valve may well fix this problem.... both of these actions are regular maitenance items.

01 cadillac seville sts fuel guage jumps from full to empty. sometimes registers full for days. is it a fuel sending unit ? If so, is it accessible without dropping the tank? do you have a diagram, or...

It defanetly sounds like a sending unit and the fuel tank needs to be removed in order to replace it and it will most likely come with a new fuel pump too.They come as a unit and there not cheap. Sorry.

I just bought the same car, theres no skipping in the tranny, but your right the car will go for a while once you take your foot off the petal, I looked at that as saving gas in a way, because your crusing and not stepping on the gas.
quick question has your battery ever died? if so how long did it take to reste the sensors?
