Question about 2003 Cadillac CTS

2 Answers

First the car has NEEDED an oil change for awhile, and it starts and runs but it will randomly die, and will crank but wont start back up. If you wait awhile it will eventually start back up after quite a bit of time.

Check the crankshaft sensor or read codes off of the OBD-II system to see if that describes a problem that would cause the car to crank but not start and run on its own.

    The check engine light isn't on tho, will it still throw out some codes?

    Sometimes if there was an intermittent service engine soon light on there will one or more code stored, especially if there is poor engine performance that is noticeable to the driver.

What causes my 2006 dodge stratus run for awhile and shut off. could it be the tempature sencor


if it were my car i would check the fuel pressure, sounds like maybe the fuel pump. first, when it dies and wont start you need to check and see if you have spark. pull off a plug wire and put a scewdriver or such and hold it about a quarter inch from the valve cover while someone cranks the engine. you should see a spark to the valve cover. if no spark then the ignition has problems, like maybe a cam or crank sensor. if there is spark but it dosnt start, its the fuel

Not wanting to start when its hot


Sounds like the crank sensor or ignition module. I would try the crank sensor first. It is cheaper and usually the problem.

2000 Blazer Cranks, Won't Start


First of all, a diagnostic wont tell them that there is arcing involved. I am thinking it is your crank sensor. It expands and retracts in different weather situations.It should make contact in all weather situations.

Will start up run for awhile then stall and wont restart


Hello, I would start with a general tune up. Spark plugs and wires, Fuel Filter, Oil Change and Filter Change, Air Filter Change, Some injector cleaner would not hurt eirther. Be sure to lubricate your high mileage car and also use a farily good oil for your motor as well. The run for awhile problem sounds like bad spark plugs. I would change your spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, and rotarty button.

My car is leaking coolant. Also after it runs for awhile the idle gets low and then shuts off. Sometimes it cranks back on but shuts off again until it cools. Whats the problem?


my 2001 catera just had the same problem i had the crank sensor replaced car wont die so far no problems starting but it has a antifreeze leak in the bottom seal of the engine. I have heard this is due to the dexcool that the manufacture decided was better than reg antifreeze and the repair bill for the labor is crazy still havent changed the bottom seal yet
