Cadillac Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.
I will do my best to assist you
what is the year make and model?
does the engine light also stay on?if so,can you give me the computer codes?
how and when did this problem first begin?
what engine do you have?
now does the engine light also stay on with the ignition on?
ok..do you have a scanner to get the codes?
you really need to scan it to get the trouble codes,these codes will give a clue to the problem,if you dont have a scanner,auto zone and most parts stores will scan it and give you the codes for free.
here is what to try..
remove the intake air duct from the throttle body and clean the inside of the throttle body with carb cleaner,sometimes the throttle body will get dirty with black soot and cause this problem,so try cleaning the throttle body first
if cleaning the throttle body doesnt help..you may need to replace the throttle body or the throttle pedal sensor
again,if cleaning the throttle body doesnt work,scan it and get the codes
