Question about 1996 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

When I was driving the deville yesterday I was having a problem getting the car to stay at speed. It almost seemed like when I let the gas petal up it would get a small boost of power. Do you know what causes that?

Check under the hood for the throttle body, and look where the cable connects to the throttle plate control. If there is corrosion there the gas pedal could be sticking.

I had this happen to a 1990 Cadillac Deville. It was cruising and then it would not slow down on the highway.

Had to pull of the road after hitting the brakes several times and finally turning the ignition off.

A piece of theblack powder coat or coating got caught in the cable.

I'm not sure, by what you're saying, if this is the problem in yours, but it's worth a look.

My 2005 Cadillac Deville speedometer goes to zero and transmission seems get stuck and car will not go over 15-20 mph with high engine rpms. Unless I mash on the petal to make it skip gears. #help


problems with speed sensor for transmission. Computer uses a speed signal to shift transmission through the gears. Without speed input, the computer doesn't know when to shift the transmission. Either the speed sensor is bad or wiring from the ECM to the speed sensor is bad. Usually 2 wires lead to the sensor. The sensor generates a AC voltage signal with higher speeds generating more voltage and frequency. The ECM (computer), looks at the signal to see how fast the vehicle is traveling.
