I am considering buying a 2008 STS V8 that has an issue where the engine
starts, but then shuts itself off. I am sure this could be many things, but is there a frequent issue with this problem that I should investigate when I go see the car?
JA: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?
Customer: I will certainly check that. I can bring my equipment to check on charging and battery. Any major things that tend to make the engine shut off and not just die from lack of fuel or stuff like that?
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I hope to, or if more major, pay to get fixed. I haven't even seen the car yet.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Don't have any other information. Car looks very clean from pics and has only 70,000 miles.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Cadillac Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
