Customer Question
My car will turn...

My car will turn over but will not start; like it's out of gas

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Nothing has changed on gas mileage. It had been starting good.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Cadillac?

2009 DTS

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your DTS yourself? What have you tried so far?

We would like to fix it ourselves if possible. We haven't tried anything.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nothing I can think of.

Are you getting any warnings on dash such as theft warnings?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No
Cadillac Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago

Try to see if vehicle runs on starting fluid, let me know. Thanks.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No, it will not start on fluid
Cadillac Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago

Next step is to pull a ignition coil, use a spark plug tester, and see if coil is producing spark. Or connect a scan tool to check diagnostic codes.

It is getting fire. Will need to wait until tomorrow to have access to a scanner
Cadillac Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago

That is kinda hard to believe it is getting spark but won't start on starting fluid. If that were true then low compression due to timing chain problem would be next likely cause. Let me know tomorrow if it is showing any codes, thanks.
