    spent close to $1000 chasing various codes and finally replaced the actuator that is built onto the throttle body. the actuator replaced the old throttle cables that were on older 60 and 70's cars. tap the round actuator on the end of the throttle body and see if the idle varies to possible identify this problem.. this might help or might not. good luck

Disconnect hose from fuel pump, place hose into container and turn on the ignition - that will turn the fuel pump on and get the gas out.

I woud have suggested that you siphon it but most newer cars do not allow you to stick a hose down the tan refill pipe to do so.

What your problem is indicating is that for some reason, insufficient coolant is being circulated through the engine. There could be many causes for this, the most common listed below:
  1. Low coolant level
  2. Bad thermostat preventing additional coolant from reservoir from entering the system
  3. Leaking radiator hose
  4. Leaking radiator
  5. Bad water pump - a symptom of a bad water pump is the inability to adequately circulate coolant throughout the engine. This is especially true at low speeds or at a stop when the water pump turns at it's slowest.
I hope you find that I've adequately answered your question.

What causes the fuel pump fuse to keep blowing? 2006 Cadillac dts


A fuel pump is a kind of motor and any motor is subject to having shorted windings. If the shorts weren't catastrophic, the pump could still be functional but drawing much higher currents than when built. I have an ugly feeling your fuel pump in located inside your gas tank which would require removing the tank to replace it.
I'm pretty sure that the real factory service manual would have a test (resistance measurement) that would quickly find whether the pump is healthy, whereas the aftermarket books from Haynes or Chilton may not.

2001 dts stalls 10 minutes after every startup


Its possible you have a bad connection somewhere that heats up and causes a current drop. Also if you know what system is shutting down alot of times a relay can do this. Try switching relays. What would shut a car down is ECM/ Ignition or fuel pump relay. If you have others that are the same switch them.
