1991 Cadillac DeVille (has 110,000 miles on it) suddenly dies while driving. Starts and idles fine, but shuts off after driving only 1-2 blocks. What's wrong and how do we fix it?


There are many things that can contribute to this problem. It sounds like it may be ignition related. Possibly an ignition control module or ignition coil. The check engine light coming on while driving is the key to finding the problem. The light comes on when the computer finds a problem and will then store it in its memory. Have the codes checked for what the computer has found to be at fault and with a little diagnostics, should lead you to the problem

CAr idles fast - sucks up gas and will shut off periodically.


If it has a high idle I would say that the iac (idle air control) valve is bad and needs replaced. It should be located on the throttle body.

SERVICE ENGINE SOON


Sounds to me like you have a fuel issue. Try replacing the fuel filter and run a good injector cleaner through the motor with a couple of tanks of high octane gas. The service engine light can easily be tripped by weak detonation in the combustion chamber, causing very poor performance as well. Good place to begin before you start dumping $$ trying to figure out whats wrong.

2001 Cadillac Deville; noise after the engine starts


The whine sounds like the power steering or the alternator, as far as the idle issue goes try this clean the intake throttle body and idle speed control valve with carb spray, disconnect battery for 5 min. then reconnect and drive a few miles to reset idle strategy. The car will try to die when you spray the intake, hold the idle up to prevent that, use at least 1/2 the can of carb spray.
