Question about 1998 Cadillac Seville

1 Answer

Car is running very rough

My car first stated with a shake, then it felt like there might be a fuel pump problem, now it feels like it is missing all together and has a ticking sound. The car has 75K and the service engine soon light is on and sometimes blinks. It seems to run a little better with the AC off. I thought the engine did not need a tune up for 100k. Please help I do not have much money to fix a major problem. Any suggestions. Thanks Kimberly

Sounds like mine. I changed plugs and wires and it went away. Could be the ignition coils also.

Why does my car misfire randomly at idle and sometimes at operating speed/rpm?


A faulty air intake sensor can fool the management system into rich or lean fuel mix, causing rough running. Check exhaust emissions for rich fuel smell. That should at least rule another line out if nothing else...

Hesitation on acceleration


Can be egr valve, enginge usually shakes back and forth like a huge miss most times. I would definatly check in this order: fuel filter, fuel pump. Sometimes the pump may run, but be too weak to run an engine at speed or under load. If you replace the filter and pump, and it still don't help, then at least you know for sure its not the pump or filter, and move on to the egr, vacuum leaks, etc. Sometimes its a "search till you find it" type thing.

2003 SATURN VUE SERIVE ENGINE SOON LIGHT IS BLINKING ON AND OFF RAN THE OBDII READER AND CODE P0304 CYLINDER MISFIRE CAME UP I CHANGE SPARK PLUGS AND BOOTS BUT CAR STILL DRIVES ROUGH SHAKES AND WHEN PARKED...


The P0304 indicates the #4 cylinder is misfiring. The flashing light means the cylinder is not firing at all...It could be several things causeing it, coil, wires, plug, injector or vacuum leak. Do not drive your vehicle until you have this repaired, as it will lead to further more costly problems. Good luck, i hope this helps.

I have a 1990 Chevy Astro van that stopped running on me while I was driving it. I towed it home. I replaced the fuel pump and it ran for a little while and started running very rough. So I bought another...


You say you replaced the fuel pump, what about the filter? If the filter is clogged it can cause this as can ignition. Since the car started for you after the fuel pump was changed the original problem was the fuel pump. But you should never change the pump without installing a new filter.
