Does it crank for a long time when you start it? Check for clogged fuel filter or failing fuel pump.

Where is the idle control sensor for 2004 Cts Cadillac


There is none.Idle is controlled by your computer. If you have problems, check these. Vacuum lines behind throttle body. You may have to replace your air flow sensor. You can also try this:
Engine cold.
Turn your key to on position for a full minute. Don't start the car.
Turn key off for 10 seconds
Turn key on for 10 seconds. (Don't start)
Turn key off for 10 seconds. Then start the car. Might work but in all probability your main airflow sensor (MAP) is the problem.

MY CADILLAC 2004 CTS CRANKS AND DIES WITHIN SECONDS. IT DOES IT ONLY OCASSIONALLY


Replace the fuel filter. Hope the fuel pump isn't on the way out, cause it is expensive.

2004 Cadillac CTS won't start after oil change? car starts and runs for only 10 seconds?


Did you also check the air filter? The Cadillac CTS is very finicky about the differential pressure across the air filter. Checking the air filter often causes the hose between the air filter box and the intake to come loose or start to leak. This will cause the car to run rough or die immediately after starting.

2007 cadillac cts 3.6 motor...engine stalls. runs slightly rough during start up and then will die very occasionally taking off, hesitates and "jumps" between 40 to 50 mph. Does not write to code so...


CTS are very sensitive to problems with the hose between the air filter box and the intake. If it is not on good or leaks, it will cause the car to run rough, or die immediately after starting.

Cts won't start after oil change


Had the same problem. 2005 Cadillac CTS with the 3.6L V6 would not start after a oil change. I started looking for wires and stuff that might have been disconnected. That is when I realized that I had also checked the air filter. The hose from the air filter box to the intake had come slightly loose from the intake. The car would not run with an air leak at the air cleaner box box hose. Put the hose on tight and problem fixed.
