SOURCE: my 92 cadillac sedan deville is idling very high

sounds like the ISC ( idle speed control ) motor is being told by the computer to extend or else its possibly binding. Located on the drivers side of the throttle body . Also check for binding aceelerator linkage. One other thing that might sound strange is check the floor mat by the gas pedal. Sometimes gets jammed.

your water pump may need to be changed. have a trusted mechanic check it. the water pump is connected to the drivebelt of your 4.9 l engine, and if thats where the sound is coming from you can be pretty certain

SOURCE: 1999 cadillac sedan deville won't fire to start

you need to figure out if your missing spark at the plgs,or check fuel pressure at fuel rail,you'll need at least 55psi of fuel pressure,but if you have had no luck spraying the throttle body,your probably missing spark

SOURCE: My 1993 cadillac deville feels

The error is indicating that the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) is out of the normal range with respect to the Idle Speed Control (ISC). Try something really simple and inexpensive first by removing the air ducting between the air filter box and the throttle body. Clean the throttle body interior and throttle plate with a cloth sprayed with WD40. Turn the throttle plate by pushing it at the top with your fingers and clean the throttle throat behind the plate as best you can. Reassemble the ducting and ensure that there are no air leaks at the junctions and no splits. Turn the key to position 2 (engine not running) and depress the accelerator pedal to the floor and then back up again. Start the car and nine times out of ten that should fix it. The TPS measures the opening angle of the throttle plate. The TPS is device consisting of a circular carbon track with a slider, corresponding to the throttle plate, sweeping along it. It as three wires to it, two to provide the 0 to 5 volt range along the length of the carbon track and the third to measure the voltage at the contact point of the slider. To check the TPS measure the voltage of the middle pin of the connector when the ignition is at position 2 (engine off) as you push the throttle plate open and closed by pressing on the accelerator pedal. The voltage should alter in a smooth continuous way. Any drop outs of signal indicate a worn carbon track and the TPS should be replaced.

Try cleaning the throttle plate first . I wouldn't just change the IAC valve without testing , hooking up a scan tool that show engine data.
A few different thing's could cause high idle .The idea is to test all thing's that could cause a high idle till you find the problem. Vacuum leaks , throttle plate sticking because it's gummed up with carbon , varnish build up . Or is the PCM/ECM making it idle that hight etc... Is the throttle cable bound up.

2001 Cadillac Deville; noise after the engine starts

The whine sounds like the power steering or the alternator, as far as the idle issue goes try this clean the intake throttle body and idle speed control valve with carb spray, disconnect battery for 5 min. then reconnect and drive a few miles to reset idle strategy. The car will try to die when you spray the intake, hold the idle up to prevent that, use at least 1/2 the can of carb spray.
