78 Cadillac Seville starts not

Cadillac Seville gots Fuel (new Incectors, new fuel trail, new carburetor, all new sensors, new fuel pump, new tubes, enough fuel) and got spark, but orange instead of blue (new distributor cap and new rotor, new wires and new sparks). Also the air flow is ok new filter), has enough of power, freshly loades and new battery) and the starter runs (new starter, new wiring), but the car doesn't start. When I check the connection from the battery + to the pink wire on the distributor, I measure 13,5 Volts, but as soon as I turn the starter key to the running position (without starting) the voltage falls down to 0,150 to 0.250 Volts. when I try to start, as soon as the starter runs, the voltage goes up to 0,600 to 0,800 Volts, but the car doesn't start. Where shall I check next, what can be the problem? thank you for all help. regards Bruno

Have you tested the new battery? Would not be the first bad battery I have seen come off the shelf. If the battery tests good check your battery cables.

SOURCE: my 92 cadillac deville is burning gas wrong

I had similar problem. Coolant temp sensor was reading wrong and telling computer that engine was always cold and feeding too much gas. If it's really bad, you'll see black smoke out exhaust.

1995 Cadillac Seville SLS stalls out


It sounds like it may be time for a new fuel filter, try replacing the fuel filter first. The filter has a life of 30,000 miles or one year, if it has not been changed, good chance that it's the fuel filter. Take not that a dirty fuel filter will make your fuel pump run hotter and will shorten the life of the fuel pump which is the more costly repair of the two. Good luck and keep me posted, Be glad to help you get your car running 100% again.
