Cadillac Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.
I have been in this business since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. Please be patient!
I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a "positive rating" in return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why "in advance", so I can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you through it.
A jumped chain will cause this problem as you have described. The engine can't be seized up if it runs, so do a compression check to confirm a jumped chain. Also, check your fuel pressure and volume. Low pressure can also cause this as well as a plugged fuel filter.
