I suggest returning it to your mechanic, as the repair would likely be for free.

My car was idling ruff when stopped, but fine while driving. The check engine light never came on. MY mechanic ran a test said airflow sensor was bad and changed it. When driving away the check engine...

the fact that the car runs well indicates that it is not the ECM ( brain to mechanics who have little idea)
take the vehicle to an accredited service center who has experience on your make of vehicle and have the fault codes read and then fix the faults reported

My 1997 catera has a battery drain,any idea where i should start looking?

A mechanic would first test the battery for a dead cell, then check each circuit on the car. We usually start with the big circuits such as lights and the alternator, and then go down the list.

I have a 1997 Cadillac Catera. The car stalls in the middle of driving, sometimes it starts right back up and sometimes it takes 20-30 minutes. Spent 400 dollors for mechanics to "TRY" vaccume hose and...

if it has the 3.0 liter 6 cylinder i would bet the crank sensor is bad,it goes open when hot and the car shuts off due to no rpm signal and then after 15 minutes or so it cools off enuff to work again and starts up,,,usually a p0335 crankshaft position sensor dtc but not always,,,try that,,

2000 catera cadalac the car will not fire. the battery is okay.

The crankshaft position sensor will do that for you. Have someone check the code, if you don't want to take it to the dealer, rent the computer from autozone( a little expensive, but you'll get your money back when you take it back) If it cranks, but does not fire( try to start) that is what it is. Many people mistake the issue for the fuel pump. It is a common problem with the catera and it is a pain to reach.
