Question about 1991 Cadillac DeVille
The car has just had the alternator replaced, a new battery, and a water pump. Now the car will start fine and then while you are driving it may cut off and will not restart. This morning I went to put gas in the car and it would not start back up. Also, it will cut off randomly and then if it does start back up, it seems to not be getting any power. I have had it looked at and after towing it to the shop, it starts up fine and will run for 30 minutes or longer fine at the shop. The car has 120,000 miles and is just eating my money and no one can figure out what the problem is. I don't want to pay $500.00 for a new fuel pump when no one can diagnose the problem accurately.
Where do you live?
That sounds like a fuel pump.
Why can't anyone diagnose that?
I assume they checked fuel pressure,filter and road tested it.
How many people or hours were put into the diagnostic process.
Why don't you pull the fuel tank yourself,and change the pump. You would save money and it would be done correctly?
There should be a fuel pump relay in the system.
Are you sure this isn't more about the money than the fix?
Very seldom does an Alternator and Battery go at once.
You need to pay attention to what your being pitched. Find a good shop
