I sort of doubt that is it but i would have that either replaced or taped to cover any air leakage,first have the system scanned for a possible code, to me it sounds like the IAC motor(Idle Air Control) this has a lot to do with engine idle etc. but before you go off on a witch hunt and make yourself absolutely crazy.... take it to Auto Zone or Discount Auto, where they will scan it for free and give you a printy out of the results indicating the defunct part or parts/its location and its price...what more could you want and it is all done as a free service hoping you will buy the parts from them.
Hope thjis works.
Happy Motoring!!!

I ran my 2004 cadillac escalade out of gas after putting 4 gallons of gas in it it will start and when it does it is very very shaky and it will not idle what do I do

There is air in the fuel system. Look for the fuel filter, if its in a container, unscrew it then fill the container the filter sits in about 2/3 full. reinstall the filter and screw it back on. You basically need to prime the full system, and it should be fine. or just hold the revs midway, and let the fuel pump purge itself of air.

You need to have an OBII scan for faults. Any good shop or parts store can scan it for you give you list of faults/fixes. Once repaired then they can/will reset lights

If you're wondering about the Traction light on the dash...
Make sure you have all the same tires with uniform tire wear. Large differences in tread wear could cause this.. Another cause is a wheel speed sensor that's reading incorrectly and registering one wheel at a different speed than the other speed sensors. This would require the use of a scan tool that can read ABS data, to find the problem.

Stalling, spuddering, check light on, not good on gas, idols high,

I would go to Autozone or Advance Auto Parts or your local engine technician to have the code(s) scanned off of the OBD-II connector (1996 and up cars have this connector).

Many parts stores like Autozone and Advance Auto Parts will not charge for the service and it can lead to a diagnosis of which system to address regarding the poor gas mileage and the high idle, spuddering, stalling, etc.

Good luck on this repair.

The car ( 2003 Escalade)runs fine but check engine light came on.

Hooking a code reader onto the OBD II port will give you a code so that you can figure out what is wrong with it. It is most likely an emission code which won't hurt the performance but possibly the gas mileage

2000 passat v6; check engine light+spuddering when accelerating

good chance with that problem you were close most likely a misfire will cause that. it would be either your spark plugs or coil pack. also make sure your vacuum lines are good and air filter is good. also bad gas can cause that problem. the worst outcome would be your throttle body going out on you.

2004 Cadillac Escalade Engine Stalling when idling in hot weather

Given your high guage temps of 210 degrees and high ambient temperature of 100 degrees, your engine's stalling can very likely be linked to either one of these three causes: 1) vapor lock; 2) percolation; or 3) PCV malfunction. Here's a really good diagnostic article that precisely addresses this issue of yours:

2004 cavalier spudders

Sounds like a plugged exhaust system to me... check the tailpipe... try to smother it with your hand while wearing a oven mitten. You should feel pressure building up... check the feel of the pressure with another vehicle. Mufflers do come apart inside and pieces get stuck in the tail pipe forcing the engine to idle or even just stall out... In this case you are fortunate to get 10mph. Good luck....
