Customer Question
I have 1996 el Dorado...
I have 1996 el Dorado North Star, while driving 60 mph down the freeway i accidentally turned the ignition off and the car died. Since that happened my car will not start or even turn over? It has been a mystery and no one has been able to solve this problem. The car is completely unresponsive, will you please help me?

Hello there,

How long did you freewheel with the engine off?

Until the car rolled to a stop

We are waiting for our $5 answer and we havent gotten that yet, why would we pay you an additional $26 ?
Cadillac Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 months ago

How far was that?

Automatic transmissions don't like rolling very far without pressure lubrication.

The $5 is a deposit.

Without pressure lubrication.

Are you still on the highway?

You should have it towed, you won't fix an issue like this on the side of the road.

My car has been sitting in my driveway for the last 6 mo. The roll was about a mile.
Cadillac Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 months ago

Have you had a scan for codes?

Does the engine turn over by hand?
