There were no codes and it isn't doing it now. The car had not been driven for a few days and when I did drive it it took up quickly. I didn't have to put my foot on the gas at all. Very dangerous situation! The car got up to 60 mph and the brakes were smelling from burning,
Cadillac Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 11 months ago

ok, you need to have the transmission control module scanned for fault codes. a generic code reader will only read engine faults. transmission faults will not turn on the check engine light, so it needs to be taken to a shop with a scan tool that can inerrogate the transmission control module.
