Customer Question
I have a 1995...

I have a 1995 Cadillac Seville 4.6L. northstar eng. It starts hard hot or cold,it might even have a back fire when starting.. When it does start and warmed up good it will not idle at 1,000 to 2,000 rpm without it lobing.. what to do..

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Yes I have

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

I have always fixed my own cars since I was 16 years old. I have new plugs, wires, that's about it..What about the crank shaft sencer.???

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

This is the first northstar eng. I have had..
