Question about 2001 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Cadillac Deville that won't start. It sat in the pound for 5 weeks. When I got it back I had to jump it with another car. It started and then stopped about half a block away and hasn't started again since. I had it towed to a shop and they told me it was bad gas. I had it towed to my house. I siphoned the gas out and replaced it with new gas and it still wouldn't start. I tried using starter fluid and I got a backfire that caused my engine block to crack. I sealed the block with JB weld and I have no known leaks. Now when I try to start it, it just gives me a clicking sound. I have had my battery and starter tested. I'm told the starter is good and also the battery but the battery decharges very quickly. What could it be?

TPS throttle position sensor needs cleaning or replacment. or if you run the tank low on fuel you might be needing to replace fuel pump and filter.

1999 Cadillac some times starts and other times it just cranks and won't start for several weeks


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.

My engine won"t turn over on my 97 cadillac


It could be the starter. It could be a bad battery cable connection. Have you tried jump starting the engine. If it starts, then most likely it's to do with the battery or charging system.

1999 Cadillac Deville- Won't start!


First, obviously, put gas back in the tank.

Check the fuel pump fuse, (20 amp yellow fuse in the lower left corner of the group). If that is not blown, turn the key on and pound hard on the bottom of the fuel tank. The fuel lubricates the fuel pump, once it runs dry, the pump can lock up. Once the pump is immersed in fuel again, a sharp jolt will unstick it and let it pump up to pressure again. If it locks up for too long, the pump will burn out and need replaced.

We found this out by accident, got mad and pounded on the bottom of the tank and the pump jumped to life.
