Question about 2000 Cadillac Catera
I have a 2000 cadillac catera 110000 miles.
the check engine light came on like 2 months ago.the codes were for the oxygen sensors. i changed all four of them but the light came back on after about 2 weeks. then the mechanic checked the codes again and determined i needed a new catalytic converter. i changed both converters,left and right side but a few days before the converter was changed,the car eould just shut off after about 15 minutes of driving.now it wasn't just while idling,it was actually while the car was in motion. it would start back after letting the car sit for about an hour.during the 15 minutes of drive time though,it would run just fine.no stalling or jerking.
i changed the converters,same thing. changed the fuel filter, relay fuel pump and it still goes off after 15 minutes. i am beginning to lose faith in the mechanic i use because these parts cost a lot and so far it seems like they keep making me spend money i may not need to be spending.
altogether, repairs done so far are all 4 oxygen sensors,both catalytic converters, an entirel new fuel system save for the fuel tank but the car still shuts off.
check engine light is off now though but if the car only runs for 15 mniutes max,maybe it just hasn't had enough time to trigger of the codes. i am frustrated.
so far i have spent close to $4000 in repairs but the car is still not fixed.
anybody,somebody please help!!!!!!
