Question about 1992 Cadillac Seville

1 Answer

1992 Cadillac seville sts will not start

Mechanic put in a rebuilt starter worker good for 3days, 4th day hot day statered twice, then nothing, check the battery ok, checked the fuses ok, mechanic checked the started he took it out and tested ..said ok. Now the mechanic said there waiting for a electrician go throught the ignition wires, and it might cost me $600.00 dollars, does that sound right? and is there any other cheaper solutions or suggestion.

Thank you

    Sounds like a bad rebuild. bench testing often does not reflect much more than hwo well the starter freewheels. It also must produce enough torque to turn an engine. Cheaper and easier to replace starter again and see how that works out. Mechanic should know that as well. I can't speak to his motives and ability but a second (independent) opinion may be in order.

Sounds like two different problems. The no start could be fuel or ignition related. The loss of coolant could be an external or internal leak, including a head gasket.
You would need to figure out if you are lacking spark or fuel pressure when it fails to start to proceed with testing.

Sounds like a loose connection on the battery. Clean and tighten them, and check the battery ground. Is the starter cable on tight? If still nothing, a shop needs to check the ignition switch for a defect.

False overheated 92 Seville STS


Coolant temperture sensor is the first thing to inspect.
With the engine off and cold.
Pull the connector and clean it.
Check is this the OE sensor. It will have on of the following number on it.
10045847; 12146312; 15321686; 15326386; 25036092; 25036708; 25036979; 25037182

Write any number down, You will help you to get the EXACT match in the auto part store.
The sensor is around $15.
If the contact cleaning does not help then just replace the coolant temperture sensor.
Use the water pump thread sealer to ensure proper seal.
After install the sensor,inspect for ANY coolant leak before put the vehicle back to service,
Please post more information or question on the comment window.
I will follow this post.
