2003 Cadillac Seville STS 65,000 mi,
engine would stall and catch back or would restart while driving down highway. Sometimes hard to start. Replaced both upper and lower crankshaft sensors. Worked fine after that.
1997 Cadillac Seville STS 122,800 mi,
Low oil pressure comes on even tho it is full of oil. Engine stalls but restarts easily. Take to my mechanic tomorrow.
Replaced cam and both crankshaft position sensors and still have the issue. GM has been made aware of losing ALL power while driving at highway speeds and they don't have a solution themselves.
Car shuts off at low speed or stop, no warning. Then starts right up.
2003 Cadillac Seville STS 161,405 mi,
