Ground straps on engines are either from the battery earth post to the engine or to a body point . If it is to a body earth point the engine earth strap will be around an engine mount. From the engine bolt around the rubber to the body mount bolt. probably on the mount closest to the battery

    I called caddy dealership and was told I needed an 11" strap and it's suppose to start at the frame but thats all I was told. they won't give me ay more info.

    I woild suggest that you use a bolt on the engine closest to the negative pole of the battery and fix it there. It could be an accessory bolt ( alternator -ac compressor--power steering). This will earth out the engine and then get aother strap and bolt it from one side of an engine mount to the other side of the mount and that will earth the body back to the battery via the engine. This is how it was done on older cars.

If you like go ahead and let someone sell and replace your transmission but here is my suggestion! Check around and see if you can find a minor vacuum leak! This can simply be the big round hose that goes from the fuel injection to the power brake hub! This is normally a push in connector which has about a 1/2 inch hose clamped on it! If there is any kink or the connector is not in correctly a leak will occur and the transmission will shift rough as though you will be thrown out of the vehicle! Try unplugging this connector and plug it back in hard and straight and maybe you will be lucky and fix your problem. If the vacuum is correct your transmission will shift better than you have ever experienced!

2000 Cadillac Deville DTS 4.6L HO Northstar


Well, I don't think so. The pressure sensor will throw its own code (0450, 0451, 0452, 0453, or 0454). And likewise, the fuel level sender or sensor could also throw its own codes (P0460-P0464).

I'm not sure the level sensor and the pressure sensor are linked together. They are separate on a 2005 buick century, the pressure sensor being at the top of the tank located on the fuel pump module, but Cadillac: anything is possible.

Since you replaced the purge solenoid, there may be a problem in the circuit. The purge should have battery voltage to it with the key on. The ECM will ground the circuit internally when the purge is wanted. One symptom of a purge valve that isn't working or stuck closed can be a whooshing sound when the fuel tank cap is opened, indicating excessive pressure in the tank.
A shop's scan tool could be used to command the purge valve on to check it.

I have a 1988 Cadillac sedan deville. it died while I was driving it. it had gas. now it won't start. There is no fire going to the plugs we changed the coil and power pickup but it still doesn't start


I am going to assume that you still have no spark. There is a lot that can cause this issue. Check the Ignition Coil ground strap. The link shows the picture of it. http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/1988-Cadillac-Deville/Ignition-Coil-Ground-Strap/_/N-ihqwdZ9n8gz
It could be Ignition Control Module. Also, if you have HEI ignition then there is a pick-up under the cap and the wire burns off. if it's burned off you will have to pull the distributor, separate it and put another pick-up in it. There is a laundry list that will cause a no spark in that vehicle.
Please check your engine codes. The link shows how to do this for 1985 through 1993 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7_llsru9vA
After you get your codes go to the link for diagnostic codes list. http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/ht4100-4-1-4-5-4/21558-obd-i-codes-4-x-engines.html
It would help by posting your codes. As commonly found, some codes maybe false codes caused by another problem however, most advanced technicians will know if a particular code maybe false by the problem the vehicle is having and know what common problem normally causes the false code. I hope that we can get your Cadi back on the road quickly.

Replaced battery for 2001 cadillac deville but not wont turn over ....i have power but just wont crank whats going on?


Electrical problems require tracing from where you have current to where you do not. For example, it could be dirty battery terminals, back chassis ground connection, missing engine ground strap, bad neutral safety switch, bad ignition switch, bad starter solenoid, bad starter field or armature brushes.
See if there is current at the starter solenoid, when you try to crank it, with a test light. They move further upstream if there is not.

We have a 2000 deville that started leaking coolant. we replaced the thermastat and it continues to leak coolant. it wont overheat as long as we keep the coolant in it. it leaks alot more when the car is...


check condition of radiator,radiator & heater hoses,look for spots wet w/ coolant.look more or less straight up above where coolant puddles on ground.engine block is equipped w/'freeze plugs' that sometimes corrode & leak.washing suspected area of leak with an engine degreaser product may aid in locating source of leak.

Whath does "service engine soonmeans"


SERVICE ENGINE SOON and SERVICE ENGINE NOW are 2 amber warning lights pertaining to the vehicles computers.SERVICE SOON advises you of a problem, although not an emergency should be attended to promptly. Your technician can trace the problem by accessing fault codes through the climate control panel. SERVICE NOW indicates a more severe problem which will most likely precipitate a failure / breakdown. The CHANGE OIL LIGHT indicates by time and mileage is a separate light.

Its on the same side of the engine as the transmission, driven by the belt up top. It requires a special socket to remove the pump from the housing.(also, the pump turns clockwise to remove!)
