SOURCE: 93 seville sts: engine revs, speed drops,

Probably not the ECM. Have it scanned. IF is is a 93 it means you have a 4.9 motor. They have a solenoid idle cotroll that could be malfuntioning, there could be a problem with the throttle position sensor, or maf, egr,mass air flow, You get the picture. The light is on to tell you what is happening. Most Autozones and Advances will scan it for free. Good luck.

SOURCE: between 3000 and 4000 RPM engine stutters

Hello
The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

Can i remove the motor from a 1997 cadillac seville from the top


It would probably be easier to remove the engine and transaxle from the bottom but I don't see why you couldn't take just the engine out from the top after removing the hood and the braces.

Message center indicates 'Change Engine Oil'. 1997 Cad Seville


You have to reset it, I honestly am not sure about how for your particular model but I had a Grand Prix and several Pickups about that year that required turning the key off then back on and hitting accelerator pedal three times as I remember. Your owners manual are Goggle search for "rest Change Engine Oil 1997 Cadillac will find you the specific info you need for free. I hope I have helped you and Merry Christmas!
