Question about 1997 Cadillac Seville

2 Answers

This could be tough. There is a 2000 SLS Seville sitting on a Used Car Lot in Connecticut. Car has 38K miles on it and they want 4K for it cause it has internal engine issues. They claim it runs but not sure for how long. Vehicle ID # is 1G6KS54YOYU300757 is there any way you can determine the extent of the internal engine damage and how much it would cost to fix?

Not without looking at it, you need to spend some money and have a mechaic look at it...buyer beware everything is more expensive that carries the caddy name, worst case senerio price a new motor there is a reason the dealer hasn't invested the money for the repair

How can I tell if I have a faulty wheel speed sensor on 2002 Cadillac Seville SLS


One possible cause is that these systems remember values from the last time the vehicle was started. Sounds like sitting for a long time is caused unacceptable differences between current and last readings. This is possibly because of a vehicle attitude change, often due to a low tire pressure. Modern low profile tires are very sensitive to pressure changes - pressures tend to drastically change with changing ambient temperature and will deflate over time.
Also try starting the vehicle more frequently - that is needed to keep the drive train and electronic systems in good working order.

2000 cadillac seville sls will not come out of park


Most likely the safety feature built into the brake switch. Check to see if the brake lights come on when you step onthe brake. If not, it's likely the bad brake switch preventing you from putting the car into gear. If this is not the case, then you have a security issue and should try a different key to start the car.

Good price-
Pay $20 and have a mechanic go take a look at the car- if you have a good mechanic, they will gladly go (for compensation of course) and give you an estimate based on a looksee and the comments of the dealer.

Than you can access the total price and value to determine if it suits you.

Besides cash, you can also tell the mechanic that you'll use him exclusively for service in the future.
