Well, the first thing one should check is the transmission fluid level. Add Dexron ATF to the transmission until full when the vehicle is at normal operating temperature after 30 or 40 minutes of driving.

Secondly, if the car's transmission hasn't been flushed and filled in 30,000 mi. it's recommended that you do so as normal maintenance. This service typically costs about $100 or so.

If the car only runs forward but not reverse, a solenoid may be plugged up with clutch dust, or it's shorted out and needs to be replaced. However, tearing down a transmission on a 2001 Cadillac Seville is rather expensive, in the thousands of dollars.

One might consider getting a good used transmission that has a guarantee on it and have it installed, or have the one in it rebuilt.

Good luck on this repair.

Something inside the transmission. TCC solenoid/valve could be a cause. Have the codes checked, even if the check engine light isn't on.

How to fix idle problem on cadillac 2001 sts Seville


When I purchased my brand new 2002 Cadillac SLS Seville, I had a problem with the ideling and also the car would lurch forward every time I put it in drive. I had the dealer replace the idiling chip and it fixed my idleing and lurching problem. You could try this and see if it fixes your problem, or check for recalls with this problem.

If your car stalls while ideling - then check the crank sensor.

It is also good if you purchase a scanner and check which codes are registered by the on-board computer and this could save you some money trying to determine the problem.

Hope this helps.
