#9 of 63 1990 cadillac deville - wont start.
May 13, 2008 (11:35 pm)
I have a deville, it wont start, i have checked into many possibilities, like checking for spark, (there is) New fuel pump, filter, and strainer, put new alternator in, new battary, so now i am looking into the fuel being the issue at hand. There is fuel going into the fuel rails, when they are compressed fuel is shooting out, so where it goes after there may be the problem? That i dont know. When there is fuel put directly into the throttle body, it will start up, then die when there is no more fuel in there, but when turning it over i get nothing along with that, we took the throttle body off, and under there are two pipe like things that go strait up under there, one of them are clean and have no grime or anything, the other however has sludge like stuff inside it,and when i attempt to start it that stuff sprays out, I dont know much about cars so im hoping someone will come across this and have an answer, I have ran outta things that people tell me it could be that its not...so im at a stand still and really would appreciate some advice...besides getting rid of it, ive put too much into it to want to do that. Please someone help!!!

I have a 1998 Cadillac Deville and for the last two months it has been stalling at stop signs whenever it is raining. Garage says its wiring but to hard to track. Any Ideas?

Crank Position Sensors. There are two of them, replace them both. If it truly is water related, the connectors for the sensors might have a problem.

Once the car is started, there is no problem with that. As I'm driving the car, every once in a while it would just stall out. I'll pull off the road and restart it with no problem. It wont really happen again until the next time I drive it. There is no check engine light or anything. I tried to get a diagnostics but couldn't because the check engine light wasn't on. Other than that, everything works as it should. Can anyone help me with this?

I didn't, but thank you for the advice. I'll look into the price. I'm not a mechanic so do you think it will be better to have dealer do the work or buy the parts and take to my mechanic?

I'm a cheep SOB, but that is something I've never had the guts to do - buy parts and ask a shop to put them on. You are basically asking him to reduce the price on the job by about 10% or more, which is his discount on the part when he buys it and charges you retail.

well i have changed the Crank Position Sensors. Not to mention a bunch of other things and my car still keeps stalling out. One minute its fine the next it doesnt feel like staying on. It seems like the fuel is not getting to the car. I've taken it to Cadillac but they can't find anything b/c the check engine light is not on. What else could it be ?

I've had a 97 Deville now for 4 years. When I first got it (had 50,000 miles on it), it stalled when I was decelerating.....say from 40 MPH down to 20 or 10 MPH....I replaced the crank shaft position sensors, fuel pressure regulator, fuel filter, etc. Turned out to be the EGR valve....(it was just not functioning properly and choking off the engine). I have had no decelerating stall outs since then (going on 3 years and I'm up to 100,000 Miles).....but like most 10 year old Devilles new problems have emerged over the last couple of months (it's been a relatively quiet 3 years of driving though since so I can't totally complain).
