Misfire on 2-4-6-8 cylinders


Welcome to the Cadillac world. These are the second worst to work on when it comes to computers/wiring. Mercedes are the worst. Diagnostic time at my house is $300(tells you what is wrong). I refuse to do them at work, they don't charge enough and I get yelled at for taking to much time. Just take it to a dealer.

2000 cadilac deville. car runs fine, but when the Air is turned on is feels like it is misfiring and the engine light flashes, does this only when the air is on


Sir if the check engine ligh is flashing that indicates a PO300 code which is a missfire code. To determine which cylinder you will need a scanner to find out. The problem could be a failed sparkplug, a failed ignition module for that bank, a failed injector. At any rate it will require trouble shooting to diagnosis. Wish I could help more. Thank you

My engine light is flashing on my 1996 caddy sedan deville


Hi:
Usually the only problem that will make the check engine light flash is a cylinder misfire. You need to have someone scan your car to see what codes are stored to help you troubleshoot the problem. It could be something simple, like a bad spark plug, or wire, or another engine component, like an ignition module or similar, but you won't know for sure till you scan your codes. Most auto parts stores, such as auto zone, will do this for free. THen you can start your hunt , based on what they tell you.!
