Question about 1994 Cadillac Eldorado

2 Answers

CAR JUMPS WHEN GAS IS EASED OFF AND SURGES WHEN IT FIRST STARTS

WHEN CAR IS FIRST STARTED IT SURGES AND TACS UP TO AROUND 3 OR 4. WHEN YOU LET OFF THE GAS IT JUMPS AND JERKS AND ALSO WHILE DRIVING IT DOES THE SAME. I HAVE BEEN THROUGH 6 MECHANICS AND 8 PARTS THAT I ASSUME WASN'T NEEDED AS IT IS STILL DOING THE SAME THING. I CAN GIVE YOU A LIST OF ALL THE PARTS THAT HAVE BEEN REPLACED IF NECCESSARY SO YOU WILL KNOW WHAT NOT TO LOOK FOR. I HAVE SPENT $2000.00 AND STILL HAVE NO SOLUTION. CAR IS DOING THE SAME THING IT WAS WHEN I STARTED LOOKING FOR THE PROBLEM. IF YOU CAN COME UP WITH ONE YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE ON THE PLANET SO FAR THAT CAN. ALL THE FLUIDS HAVE BEEN RECENTLY CHANGED INCLUDING TRANSMISSION AND FLUID AND THE EGR VALVE REPLACED AND PORTS CLEANED. THANKS, SHIRLEY

First off what size engine is in your Eldorado? This information is necessary before your problem can even start to be accessed. It could be several things. Once I have more information I will be happy to try and assist you further. Please don't request further assistance until I get a chance to do so. Thank you,
Lee

    Have you attempted to see what codes are being thrown by the PCM? They should be able to be accessed through your climate control panel. That will give you a start. Also have the ignition coils been checked/replaced at all? Once I have more information I will respond promptly.
    Thank you,

What can make the car surge for over 2 years and the OBD2 machine does not pick it up?


It is not always a case of plugging in the code reader and the codes come up. There are different cables to use for different data plugs and certain procedures to get the codes to read . There will be a fault code recorded and you may have to take it to a dealer service centre to have their machine read the code.

The battery might be low but I doubt it is causing the "no idle" problem.
You should have an idle air control valve that the computer uses to adjust idle speed. That valve could be faulty or dirty.

Before the car would **** hard at any speed and it might do it again in 30 min. or aweek later. we replaced the cam shaft censor & crank shaft sensor. now it continuely surges mildly and the tacometer...


My car has and is doing the same thing. I replaced the cam and crank sensor less than 3 months ago, then car started dying, not starting, hard to start..etc...just like before I replaced sensors. NOW, it won't start and I am stranded~!!!
I know this is not a solved issue for you, just wanted you to know you weren't alone with issue and I hope we both can find resolve soon!!

My idle is high and can't get it to get back to around 700rpms. i was driving home one night turned on my road then it started this problem of idleing high, never stops, when the car starts it idles around...


What kind of vehicle is it? Try the throttle position sensor if it has one. If it has a carburator the choke is probably not working properly and needs cleaned or rebuilt.

WHEN YOU LET OFF THE GAS CAR JUMPS AND JERKS ALSO WHEN CAR IS FIRST STARTED IT SURGES AND TACS UP


Make sure there is no water in the gas line. Cheap gas will have water in the gas line.

Also make sure you try adjusting your idle so that way when your car is still it has a better chance of not jerking.
