Hi my 01 Deville wont idle when cold unless im keeping my foot on the gas pedal. Once it's warm, it idles fine. Any ideas?

If it were mine, the first things I'd do would be to clean the carb or jets, whichever, put a new air filter in, dump a can of Sea Foam in a full gas tank, give it a new gas filter. Could be your thermostat is sticking a bit.

All the service lights on and gas hand fluxurates in my 2001 cadillac deville what is wrong with it

The rest of the car is fine? Maybe you have a dash going bad. I have a 2004 silverado that had the same problem, lost all guages,etc. They had to put in a new panel, there was a recall for it at the time and was covered way past warranty period. They had a problem with solder joints. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

The digital guage on my 2001 Cadillac Deville Sedan is not reflecting the correct amount of gas in the car. I looked at the Driver Information Center and the fuel left over said 99.9 empty, when it would...

The problem needs to be properly diagnosed, but the most likely cause of your problem would be a malfunctioning fuel level sensor in the fuel tank. It could also possibly be a problem with the wiring to the sensor.

2001 cadillac eldorado, gas guage goes to full

to test if its the float in the gas tank, use a rubber hamer and hits 2-3 times than check guage. If the level is still wrong its the guage.

Gas gauge is not reading correctly. Shows a full

the problem is caused by a defective gas gauge sending unit, this part is located inside the gas tank, you must remove the gas tank to replace it.

2001 DeVille will start fine but won't continue to idle without keeping your foot on the gas pedal

Have it scanned and look for codes first, but then fuel trim, O2, and MAS air flow readings. I'm going to guess it's running lean and you have an air leak in the throttlebody.

Fuel gage problem

The fuel guage sensor must have gone bad. It is located near the fuel pump in the fuel tank.

97 cadillac deville fuel gauge.

Not a current owner, but knowing Cadillac, that may be the way they meant for you to think of the fuel. How many miles till refill. Maybe that made it easier to swallow the high priced, too frequent fill-ups! I'll ask my friend, he's got a '99.
