Customer Question

JA: What is the model/year of your Cadillac?
Customer: hen starting (often) engine spins long time. If accelerator is touched, engine backfires. On highway, when changing speed, engine sputters. Garage replaced fuel pump. Still does same thing. My Sedan DeVille is '96 model with 110,000 miles.
JA: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?
Customer: Only noise s the spinning of the engine when trying to start and backfiring.
JA: Are you fixing your DeVille yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I took to a local repair garage.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Local garage said bring back and would be fixed without charge. I took back and now they say nothing is wrong. I reckon they don''t want to do as prmised - fix without chargee
