Question about 2000 Cadillac Escalade

2 Answers

Escalade won't start after it has sat for 30 minutes +

I'm having a similar problem like the lady described. But I've already check the fuel pump, changed the fuel filter, and now I'm running a fuel injector cleaner through the truck. The truck will start with a burst of starting fluid, but who wants to do this everytime? Well, it appears it's draining my battery, trying to get it to start. Plus, it will eventually damage my truck. I'm a single mom with 2 kids, and can't afford to go to the shop over and over again. Please someone help me diagnose my problem, once and for all. I've already paid a cadillac expert for advice online. Some free help would be greatly appreciated!!! Please help my kids & I so we don't break down again!

You need to run a diagnostic check to see if any trouble codes have been set, I am surprised your local mechanics have not helped you with this.

2006 ford expedition will not start after driving, let it set 30 minutes and it will start right up and runs fine


Have pressure test run on your fuel pump. before fuel pumps fail they have intermittent issues like you described. Mine just did the same as yours and I replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter. she runs and starts like new.

There are MANY things that can cause this type problem...

BUT, If the cause of your problem is no fuel getting to the engine, and you've check the fuel pump (not just the relay, you need to make sure the pump is ACTUALLY pumping fuel), try checking the fuel filter?

4.3 vortec on my s10 won't start. squirted starting fluid and it started, ran but sluggish. shut it off for 30 minutes not starting again


More than likely you have a fuel pump gone bad. Fuel pressure on the Vortec needs to be at 60 psi. Check your fuel pressure, and if lower than 60, replace the fuel pump.

1990 Taurus sta wgn 3.8. Sprayed starter fluid in EFI port, car started and ran for 5 sec, won't start again


Your limited information suggests that you're not getting fuel pressure to your system. Your use of the starter fluid suggests that you have been having starting problems. Can you describe what problems led you to this action? Based on what you've described, I would suggest checking your fuel pump, appropriate fuse(s), wiring connections, fuel lines and so on to make sure you are getting fuel under pressure in your system.

Cranks but won't start sometimes. Also has cut out while idleing in traffic and again cranks but won't start. car has new battery.


From what i've seen over the years with the Chryslers i've encountered. Your describing to the "T" what appears to be a bad Crank Sensor. I will bet money that if you replace the crank sensor it will solve your problem. BUT...Also know that a bad fuel pump can do exactly what you describe in your statement. Once the pump get hot it gets to acting stupid, but yet again so can the Crank Sensor. Still, my money is on the Crank Sensor.

Sounds like the fuel pump going bad. You will need to check to make sure you have the correct fuel preasure for at least 10 mins. You can find a fuel preasure tester at any auto parts store. Same thing happened in my 2002 Escalade, replaced the fuel pump for around $650.00. Good luck
