Question about 2000 Cadillac Catera

2 Answers

My 2001 cadillac catera is giving me problems. the other day i was driving and without any warnings the car stopped. after letting it sit for about 30 minutes it restarted only to die around 20 minutes later. this seems to be what it keeps doing. i intially thought it was the fuel pump and fuel filter, after checking i saw that it was clogged so i purchased a new one and put it on the car, when i went to start the car up it repeated the same things, running for 20 minutes then stopping. i took it to a mechanic and they told me it was most likely electrical but they weren't sure exactly, can you please help?

It started dying only sometimes, if you let it set 5 min or so it will start again. Drive it all day runs great then pull into parking lot or stop sign and it dies. Turns over fine but does not fire....


The Catera has a history of stalling/cutoff issues. Many are solved with the replacement of the crankshaft position sensor. It does give the symptoms you describe. I would try that first as it is fairly cheap and easy to replace. If the problem persists after that, you've at least removed one potential possibility.




25597730-01vm304gptfsbcx1qe0tia2u-3-1.jpgThis is the description of the crank sensor from AUTOZONE (cost $44.99 USD)

  • The crankshaft position sensor identifies position of the crankshaft to the ignition control module (ICM), engine control module (ECM) or powertrain control module (PCM)
  • When not replaced, vehicle may experience no start, hard start, intermittent engine shut down, misfire, engine cut out, excessive fuel consumption, CEL illumination and/or failed emission test
  • Proper alignment, positioning and spacing for faster, easier installation
  • Designed to meet or exceed OE specifications in form, fit and function

Cadillac catera 01' odometer and trip meter stopped working at exactly 73,200 miles - everything else in the gauge cluster still works.


this sounds like a bad speedometer cluster, you stated everything else works so i assume the speedometer is working and just the odometer and trip stopped working and so the speedometer will need replacing. good day.

I have put a new timing belt on and i do not know where to set the gears to get the timing right it is a 2001 cadillac catera twin cam 3.0L


There is a special tool kit which aligns the belt on the Cateras. It's pricey but I believe there are people who rent them out. It can be done without it, but if you already removed the original belt, it's too late. The kit locks the cams in place so you re and re the belt without disturbing the timing.
