When the car gets warm, the revs drop.

You might need to increase the idle speed, or you might have a faulty ignition coil.

Oil pump at idle is good when car is warming up, but after it get real warm after 20 miles of driving the idle oil presure is low about 15 lbs



  • This is normal. On your car, on a cold start the pressure will be around 75 PSI. After the engine warms an oil pressure of 15-20 PSI at idle is just what it should be. The oil pressure gauge should escalate when accelerating up a bit to. If your old school like me 15 PSI mean danger but tat Caddy is just fine.

2000 Cadillac Catera-Engine cuts out while driving or coming to a complete stop while on a bit of a downward decline. WILL NOT RESTART for anywhere between 1-3 hours. Battery replaced, issue still...


it's the cps (crankshaft position sensor)
it cuts off the power to the fuel pump as a preventive mesure, it's a very common problems with the catera

2000 catera cold start idles rough and dies. After a few times it gets warm enough and runs smooth as silk.


Did you have battery disconnected or dead recently?

Try to place ignition in run without starting engine for 3 minutes (shut off all accessories and lights etc..). Then shut it off and then start it. Should relearn the idle.

If this doesn't fix the problem, unplug the MAF sensor, if it runs fine with it unplugged, its the MAF sensor.

Exactly what happened on my wife's 01'.
