1999 Cadillac Seville SLS Question: Engine Stall



philcav, Rochester, NH, September 05, 2010, 07:43

My wife experienced an engine stall while at a light. I brought it to our local mechanic and he recommended new wiring, fluid flushing and cleaned up the fuel system. After that, my wife was coming down an off ramp and it stalled again. We returned to our mechanic and he did a diagnostic troubleshoot and found code P0741. Would this have anything to do with the stalling? If not, what could it possibly be? Thanks for your help.

    The Code p0741 on your 1999 Cadillac Seville SLS is a transmission code related to the lock up torque converter. It generally indicates an internal transmission fault which can be corrected by performing the repairs outlined in GM service bulletin #04-07-30-034A. As far as the stalling goes, a common fault would be with one or both of the crankshaft position sensors.

    Thanks for your response. Could there possibly be other sensors which may be causing the problem?
