Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Cadillac Catera stalls for no apparent reason, I cannot get my trunk open. Of course, the most important is to get my car to not stall anymore. I'm a single mom and cannot depend on my car! I have been reading the helpful solutions on this web site. I am going to first try the least costly one of spraying CRC Intake Cleaner (4.69 at local auto parts store) into my intake. Solution tells me to remove the intake hose to the engine. 1.) Where is the hose? 2.) Where solution advises me: hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake... use 1/2 can... disconnect battery for 5 min... then restart the car. Shouldn't I put the hose back on first? So if that does not cure it i will try the crankshaft motion sensor. ($44.99 at my local auto parts store.) 3.) Where is the crankshaft motion sensor? 4.) Is there any helpful hints on doing this? Please help

Yes, most likely a fault in the auto transmission, and the car has shut itself off to prevent further damage.

Car stalls and needs fuel pump

The fuel pump is in the gas tank. You will need to remove the gas tank to replace the pump.
