Have you tried re-starting it in "nuetral" ? I had a Monte Carlo that had a bad switch in the steering column that would shut down the engine when I would be trying to turn left (just slightly). I would just slip it into nuetral and be on my way again - quickly. It would have been really dangerous to try to stop in those situations, luckily it was an easy and inexpensive fix!

Could be the crankshaft sensor, or even water in the gas will do this try a can or two of dry gas first. Is the check engine light on? When was it serviced last? Such as tune up, air cleaner, fuel filter, plugs etc.

Sounds like the fuel pressure regulator. It is not allowing enough pressure to maintain the car. For idle, you do not need as much as taking off.

2002 Cadillac Seville sls starts, idles fine. Going to accelerate have to push it to gain any speed. Have replaced plugs and wires, both oxygen sensors. Now is also overheating


Would be worth checking for a restricted exhaust gas flow. Cats sometimes get partially blocked.

If that is ok. I suggest you ask your question again.

Something inside the transmission. TCC solenoid/valve could be a cause. Have the codes checked, even if the check engine light isn't on.

2001 Cadillac Seville SLS Car does not run other


Well, the first thing one should check is the transmission fluid level. Add Dexron ATF to the transmission until full when the vehicle is at normal operating temperature after 30 or 40 minutes of driving.

Secondly, if the car's transmission hasn't been flushed and filled in 30,000 mi. it's recommended that you do so as normal maintenance. This service typically costs about $100 or so.

If the car only runs forward but not reverse, a solenoid may be plugged up with clutch dust, or it's shorted out and needs to be replaced. However, tearing down a transmission on a 2001 Cadillac Seville is rather expensive, in the thousands of dollars.

One might consider getting a good used transmission that has a guarantee on it and have it installed, or have the one in it rebuilt.

Good luck on this repair.

2000 cadillac seville sls will not come out of park


Most likely the safety feature built into the brake switch. Check to see if the brake lights come on when you step onthe brake. If not, it's likely the bad brake switch preventing you from putting the car into gear. If this is not the case, then you have a security issue and should try a different key to start the car.

1995 Cadillac SlS Shift lever knob will not move, seems frozen.


Put your parking brake on. Remove console panel. Put foot on brake. Turn ignition key to on position (Do NOT start vehicle!). Locate park lock cable (Parallel to drivers right knee). Press down on that cable with left hand while attempting to move shifter with right hand. Replace that cable if shifter moves out of park.
