You can if the coil will last the week. If the coil gives up the ghost, you stop, until you replace the coil.

What turns the speed sensor in tranny 2004 3.5 Can it be repaired without replacing the transmision?

it is driven by a drive gear on the output shaft of the transmission. you could have a bad driven gear that is the gear that is driven to create the electrical pulses to show a speed. the drive gear on some transmissions are part of the output shaft and some gears are replaceable without replacing the output shaft. in either case a part can be replaced without replacing the complete transmission.

Cadillac CTS shutdown while driving

I would say most likely the ignition coils are bad

The dealer made their money when they sold it to you

They can fix it, but don't have very high standards for the
techs or no supervision,something !

Almost half the people that come to this site can't get a vehicle
even diagnosed at a dealer

The technology is passing everyone by

You have ignition coils on each cylinder

They only last about 6 to 7 years & will go
into failsafe if they misfire bad enough,that
is called a Class A misfire,you won't pick those
up in the shop with test equipment,maybe on a scope,
but I doubt many mechanics use one or know how

Have to just walk a new coil,road test or replace the coils,
when you have those issues

The main problem is vehicles are only driven
Never tested during the year & no one knows
that you have to do anything other than change
the oil & wait for them to break down & that is what
is happening

I would change all the ignition coils 6 or 8, replace the
front oxygen sensors & clean the maf sensor & replace
the spark plugs every 3 years,those I would have done
the week I bought it

I hope you changed ALL the fluids, power steering,trans,
brake & rear axle.

Need to road test with a professional scan tool to look at all data
& look at cylinder misfire count,fuel trim & see that the 8 monitors
run clear,you need them okey, in order to go to inspection & pass

MY Buick Century that I purchased sat for like 3 years without been driven. I did a tune up which consisted of oil change, and plug change. I did not change out my wires and change the coil pack(3).. My...

With the vehicle having set for three years without having been driven, running rough or rough idle could be anything. Did you inspect the spark plug wires thoroughly to make sure there were not damaged? Did you drain the old gas and replace it with new? Are are you getting a check engine light? There are some simple steps to test the coil pack and here's an easy one

Engine problem

when the heads crack, there is a very strong possibility of water and coolant entering your engine block. what that will do is interfere with the motor oil and prevent it from properly lubricating high stress parts. the speed that the water leaks in and the amount of time it takes to do damage depend on how bad the head is cracked and how hard the car is being driven. alot of the time if this happens the driver will hear the engine knocking, or notice the engine overheating. if it was driven for 10k without any very noticable problems, then I wouldnt be too concerned about other damages. just dont run the car anymore untill you have the problem fixed. and be sure the tech fixing it also does an oil change to get rid of water in the engine.

Engine problems

Maybe the C02 sensor or the coil pack were defective. Try telling the mechanic about your problem.Money does not grow on trees. you can't be spending your hard earned money on defective products.Some dirty mechanics will sometimes use used parts or cheap brand parts that will give out. If they have dignity they won't but there are some that will.
