I have a 1999 Cadillac STS V-8. Car was idling (roughly). Pulled one of coil wires and car died. Now wont start. Sounds like it wants to but does not start. Thank you for your time in advance! Joe.

I have a 93 cadillac seville sts,the car will start but let off the gas and it dies, it wont idle, the pedal will even move on its own sometimes, oreilys said the idle air controll, is this right?


The person who gave you this advice are they a trained auto repair tech?? no. Have the dealer test the idle speed control system and see what shows up. DO IT RIGHT AND DON'T LISTEN TO THE MINIMUM WAGE SCREEN READERS AT OREILEY.

So i have a cadillac STS when i start it up its like it is accelerating on its own without stepping on the the gas but what i am concern is when i place the car in drive D it knocks really bad a loud sound...


Sounds like a vacuum leak. this will affect the idle causing it to idle high but with no power (at idle) so almost dies at idle in drive, (under resistance) The knocking is likely your exhaust pipe shaking and hitting under car, cos of the engine shake.
Look for a vacuum tube hanging loose from around the intake area. Maybe trim off stretched end and reattach. May be able to hear it with engine running.

1998 sts wont start unless u hit the gas then it runs rough ..u put it in drive it wont run over 2000 rpms then it dies


Is the gas tank above 1/2 tank now?

A worn / aged fuel pump will fail when it's hot and the fuel level is low (example: below 1/4)

Park your car in a cool area.

Start the car when it's cold outside,

Replace the fuel pump relay,fuel filter,fuel pump and fuel pump stainer at the same time.

Hello Experts, 1999 Chrysler Sebring LXi v6 2.5L. Car had a hard time starting. It would turn over but not start. When it did start, it would run and idle fine for about 4 minutes and then die. I've...


to reset the computer simply unplug the battery for about 30 minutes.

However, you have a different problem I believe. you need to check your plugs and wires/coil packs. A fouled spark plug will cause rough running at any speed.
