    I replaced the starter and battery and still having this problems. When I turn the key it doesn't say anything. Just a low clicking sound that can only be heard with the hood up.

Hey Keith,

(1) Clean the battery cables with a stiff wire brush
Remove both Neg and Pos cables; brush the bolt, washers,
and the battery terminals VERY WELL until shiny.
(2) If this does not clear the problem; check battery voltage
with engine running.. should be 16 volts from alternator.
(3) Check battery with load test (most shops do this free).

If all these fail; replace starter and soleniod...2 hour job.

MY CADILLAC 05 DEVILE SOMETIMES CRANKS IMMEDIATLY AND OTHER TIMES STARTER SPINS AND CAR WON'T CRANK AS IF THERE WAS NO GAS THEN IT WILL FINALLY FIRE UP. THIS IS VERY RANDOM. WHAT COULD BE THE PRO


Hi Thomas, Take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan. I suspect the fuel rail pressure regulator. There may be a grain of sand or other matter which sometimes allows it to discharge the pressure and thereby the fuel returns to the tank instead of remaining under pressure in the fuel rail.

The part where you say that sometimes the car acts like it dont want to crank has me thinking your problem might be with the battery terminals. Check and make sure they are clean and tight. This would be where i would start diagnosing this problem from what you described.

When i crank my 96 taurus sometimes it floods out and wont crank.


Too much gas won't make it hard to crank. To thick oil or not enough antifreeze will. If it's flooding, slowly pump the gas pedal to the floor 3 times and then with the pedal held tight against the floor, crank the engine. This will open the butterfly wide open and will blow the extra gas out.
