Customer Question

Hi, my name is Kenny.
I have 2002 Cadillac Seville SLS.
It can start engine.
But when I accelate it over 2,000 RPM from idling, It stops.
Starting again is possible. Idling is fair.
I can drive it very very slowly but that's all.
There is some air blow noise over 2,000 RPM in engine room, too.
Thank you in advance!!

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.
The first thing to check are the catalytic converters. It sounds like they are restricted/clogged. If you are wanting to do this yourself, remove the O2 sensors from the exhaust and see if there is a little bit more power(it will be very loud with the sensors out) If there is more power, then the converters are clogged and need to be replaced
