1998 Cadillac Catera missing

I'm not a mechanic but from experience I suggest that before you start with repairs, start with the fuel. You may have either picked up some dirty gas when last filled up or just stirred something up in the tank. Try a fuel cleaner from any auto parts store. Also, and this is probably not realated, the check engine light may come on if your gas cap is not tight. Good Luck

1998 Cadillac Catera - Battery Light stays on, but auto starts and runs ok

First have your alternator checked to see if the diode or regulator are getting weak. When they do that also have the battery tested for a dead cell. If after preforming these two test and nothing is found to be wrong, then it is most likely a computer error. when was the last time you had all the computer codings read and reset? If it's been awhile a good decoding cleanup my be the answer.

I have a 99 cadillac catera an just recently my speedometer ,odometer stoped working and my abs and tc lights on my dash came on is this my vss sensor or somthing else ?

You need to have an OBII scan done. (fault scan) They'll pull the fault codes from your computer and that will identify what actually is causing your lights/issues. It sounds like you have multiple issues

1998 caddy catera rides really hard levellig light fashing on dash can hear a hissing sound from under the car is there a compressor [air] for the shocks any help great

Yes there is a compressor for the level ride.If the light is on or flashing it means there is a diagnostic code or codes in the system.But if you are hearing a hissing noise then look under the vehicle and locate the air leak.You probably have a line that rubbed through somewhere.You might be able to get a repair kit to repair the leak at a auto part store.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I have a 98 Cadillac Catera. The problem is when I turn the key the car doesn't turn over.I think it is the switch because lights & gauges are staying on with key turned off. I can jump the starter...

Hello, from the description that you have given I think you may be right, I think that the switch has passed its use by date. However have it checked by an auto electrician to confirm this before spending to much money. Best of luck with it, hope this helps.

Yes, most of the vacuum hoses are emission related,having a leak will cause what ever the hose goes to get more air than it needs, replace the hose. If the light doesn't go out, have a code scanner hooked up to the car to put it out. If there is an autozone auto parts store near you, go there, they will do it.
