Question about 2004 Cadillac SRX
2004 SRX - Car was at the dealership for 5 days due to stalling and not starting. Has been sputtering, stalling and having start issues for a few months. Before it would restart after stalling but this past week, that changed.... The car stalled and would not restart. I could get it to turn over after several attempts and by pumping the gas but as soon as I would take my foot off the gas, it would die. Car started back up next morning when AAA came to tow but sputtered and stalled again. Dealership said they cleared the "history codes" and could not get them to reset for the 5 days they had the car. The replaced the air filter and sent me on my way as they couldn't find any issues. Car drove fine for 2 days then after putting gas in the car yesterday, it would not restart for a couple of minutes. Finally restarted but later it had issues turning over again when I tried to start it in the garage. 130,000K miles
Have them check the camshaft/crankshaft sensor.. please indicate if my solutions are helpful thankyou

You would be better off going to a Cadillac Dealership and paying the diagnostic fee. Spend $65 to find out what the real problem is rather than replacing parts until the car runs properly. This way you get it from a Cadillac Technician. Once you know what the problem is you can decide on where you want to have it service. Because you are paying for the diagnostics you shouldn't feel obligated to have it done at a Dealership. Please leave me good feedback if you feel this has helped.

SOURCE: I have a 1992 Fleetwood
2 possible causes:
1. you have dirt in the tank that's clogging the sump when the fuel gets agitated - leaving the engine stopped allows the dirt to go back on the bottom, unclogging the sump of the pump. The tank will have to be taken off the car, emptied and washed thoroughly.
2 - the wires powering the fuel pump go loose when heated and cut off the power - this is easy to test : when this happens just unhook the fuel line from one of the injectors and put the contact(no engine starting), it the pump is still working the fuel should gush out. Clean the contact with wire wool and crimp them a little more.

Now you can do the Fuel Pump
They seize up mechanically and fail
Did you drive with a fuel pressure gauge,
taped to the windshield
Got a good fuel filter
Looking won't help you
Always do some type of testing,
before replacing anything
