Question about 2000 Cadillac Escalade
My service engine light is on. The vehicle runs great but has a hard start. Its -8 right now where im at, and when the escalade sits for more then 5 hours, it starts rough. It always starts on the first try regardless, but the engine sounds like its difficult and it turns over slow. 5.7 liter. When its running, it runs great, just a difficult turnover. Could anything be tied to the Service Engine soon light and the hard starts together? If not, what else could it be? Im going to try to have the code scanned tomorrow to see what it is.
Repost with codes and you will recieve the help you want... the systems monitered by the light are all directly related to a running engine. turning over slowly could be battery or starter (cold weather does affect battery charges).

Either take it to a dealership and have the mechanic do it for you,,or purchase a code reader for your vehicle of ebay and do it for yourself.

Disconnect the battery, wait 5 minutes, then re-connect it. If that does not work, take it to the dealer. You may not have a problem other than the computer says it is time to turn it on. You may have noticed the same problem about 50-60K miles ago.
