It sounds like the transmission oil could be low as it doesn’t have to be down much for your type of problem to occur.
To check, the oil should be warm with the engine running and the transmission in Neutral. The level on the dipstick should be between the Low and Full Marks. There is about 1 Pint difference between the marks.

    Was the car beginning to overheat, by chance? I had just bought one too n it did the exact same things urs did...I needed to change the water pump along with some other hoses that were ripped. I also ended up having t change the tranny and a bunch of other stuff. I hope u don't have as much trouble with urs as I've had with mine :/

Will my 96 cadillac sls pass emmissions with service engine soon light on?


depends on your code but chances are it will not. Your car has the older OBD scanning system but you can still get a scan done at a shop to check and see what your code is.

Yes i have a 96 cadillac deville i just bought i cant feel it shifting.It goes right into gear and goes down the road but dont feel it shifting.


Try manually shifting it and see if you can feel it shifting.You should be able to.Then just drive it in drive light normal and see if you can feel it.Usually you will get a check engine light or have the transmission codes checked if you do feel it.Sometimes these transmissions are very smooth.Hope this helps.

Transmission sevice light on lil slip off the line


The engine control codes need to be known to go further The codes can be retrieved at most auto parts stores as they can sell you the parts recommended to fix the cat they usually don't charge to retrieve the codes and then the parts lookup computer can make some recomendations on the repairs needed. The transmission codes might not be retrieved this way and this is only giong to give you an idea of whats wrong and not a for sure. Following though on engine control codes is best left to a pro and the parts guy can probly tell you a shop the fixes cadillacs regully and buys the kind of parts that yours might end up needing

Whath does "service engine soonmeans"


SERVICE ENGINE SOON and SERVICE ENGINE NOW are 2 amber warning lights pertaining to the vehicles computers.SERVICE SOON advises you of a problem, although not an emergency should be attended to promptly. Your technician can trace the problem by accessing fault codes through the climate control panel. SERVICE NOW indicates a more severe problem which will most likely precipitate a failure / breakdown. The CHANGE OIL LIGHT indicates by time and mileage is a separate light.

"service ride control" problem with '96 cadillac deville! loud clicking nose and smoke from exhaust!


The PCO 133 I believe is ABS issue. One of the sensors may have been ruined or disconnected after water trip. PCO135 i suspect is HVAC, or heating/cooling data. Some chip or part may have gotten wet. Does the air and/or heat still work?
The AC code is air conditioning related. Is there the word "history" or "current" next to any of the codes? You may have old codes. There are a couple of ways to reset the codes. But i'm not sure if that is necessary for your car. I suspect you may have to take the car to a dealer/mechanic; which might not be a bad idea considering you just went through a gaping 3 ft puddle.
hope this helps
