Something isn't timed properly, either the timing chain or the igniton.
Incorrect installation of the chain. It is backfiring because the timing is off. Remove the chain and do it again correctly.
Time for a tune up.
its not your ignition its your crankshaft sensor that's the same problem i had.
the problem is that the starter is inside the engines of northstars, bad design, only good for cadillac service centers, real rip off cost between $2,000 and $3,000 to have replaced.
Try replacing the sparkplug. I had the same problem, I replaced the sparkplug and made sure the carburetor filter was clean. I also drained the gas tank and replaced it within new 93 octane gas. Hope this helps It should run perfect after that.
you still have a problem the light only comes on when it stores a current code
my car starts every now and again, but when it does start it turns off and then it backfires. i dont know if it is the fuel pump or the sparkplugs or both, please help me find the problem.
I had a problem with my 97 deville air ride and the fuse in the trunk labeled RSS was missing so I replaced it and the shocks started working.
Have your front tires high speed balanced
yes, study witchcraft, but i warn you, it backfires a lot.
Cadillacs are notorious for blowing head gaskets. You may want to look into that.
Sounds like the brushes need to be replaced. Find a shop that can check your regulator, and who can rebuild your generator.
i had the same problem, i fixed mine by changing all the spark plugs to the top of the line ones, i replaced the air filter and even used a shop vac to clean the box. other than that i got a tuneup at wally world or crappy tire works too.
Not sure about the relationship to the headlights, but I've had the same problem for years. After replacing relays, plugs, wires, distributor cap,.......... with no success I almost gave up. But then, a great mechanic came along and found it was the computer that was bad. $400 later my car runs really well. Good luck.
timing problem or crossed plug wire or even possibly a burnt valve.
If any car backfires it is usually due to retarded timing, running lean or a problem in the valve train.
Had the same problem on my 2003 CTS and it was the steering control sensor that needed to be replaced. No problem since
i am having same problem on mine same type truck.mine is electronic ignition box.
More than likely a timing belt Problem
The service stability system message on your 2003 Cadillac CTS usually refers to a problem in your braking system. The problem should be addressed immediately.
check your transmission
your neon sputters from old spark plugs and plug wires. i changed both and problem went away.
can you tell me if this problem is with a idle air valves control on this Cadillac Seville sls 1996
the ignition switch is bad. you have to replace the ignition switch and you will have to have a new key made with it. i just replaced it in my 1992 seville. that will solve your problem.
Assuming you have not noticed and leaks or puddles near the car the next thing would be to watch for steam coming out of your tailpipe. If there is you probly have a bad head gasket.
