If it was mine i would change oil, **** out old fuel, or drop tank. disconnect fuel lines from tank all the way to engine, and spray carb cleaner through them then blow with air hose. connect back up when you get a clean spray flowing through. add good fuel to tank and see what she says.

05 Cadillac SRX battery draining down after a couple days of sitting.


Dealer should have been able to figure this one out!

Best bet to trouble shoot is next time it is going to sit for a couple of days disconnect the battery. After the couple of days pass hook up the battery and if it's dead then the battery isn't holding a charge, if not then something in the vehicle is draining the battery.

If you live in a colder climate weak batteries tend to be more of a problem as temps get colder.

If the battery is more then 3 years old it is a prime suspect.

Hope this helps!

Hi Cherles, I'm glad to help!

I'm not there to diagnose it properly but here's a couple thing you can try! (1) When a vehicle sits for a long period of time the gas can go bad. I would make sure the gas is not full of moisture from sitting so long. (2) OH the old years when they had points. I would take the point out and see if they are burnt if they are replace them. Start here and see if this helps. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Cherles.

My Car sat for a couple years and after I got a tune up the car keeps dying out and have to keep my foot on the gas to keep it started


check and make sure that nothing has built a nest in the air intake both before or after the air filter. also i know here in tn. if a vehicle sits for an extended amount of time dirt dobbers build nest everywhere it could be possible one could have built a nest in the throttle body not allowing air to pass through the iac valve. i would also check fuel pressure if there appears to be no blockage in the air intake
