My car was stolen with the keys so i removed my entire column once my car was located. I now need to replace the original. they are not the easiest to find so how many years off can i go?

The following codes have been read from the computer...P0122, P0741, P0174 and P0300 while driving, the engine acts like it is misfiring, with a little hesitation when accelerating. A tune-up was done last year with plugs and wires. After getting the code P0122...throttle positioning sensor, it was replaced, but the above continues to happens. P0300...fuel to rich and not being burned correctly, may have to do with the ignition coils...yes? If so, do I need to change out all the coil packs or could it just be one that's gone bad?

was working fine until a few months ago. is this the a/c control switch??

small engine oil leak. 127K miles. Told it was the lower block seal needs to be replaced. Engine has to come out. Around $1600 job. I have low oil consumption have to put in 1 to 1 1/2 quarts between oil changes 3000-4500 miles. It is in shop now having a new re-build transmission put in costing me $3000. My husband about chocked when I told him this... My husband made it quit clear I had to drive this car for another 3-5 years. The transmission problem dealer advised me 6 years ago at 78k miles; but no symptoms and I didn't want to spend the $3500 they wanted to charge me; so I just had the system flushed they didn't find any metal shaving. I started having issues 3 months ago (the torque converter seal gone intermittingly slipping out of overdrive. Running at 2000rpms at 70mph jumping to 2800 rpms; I would let off the gas to bring down the rpms and slowing accelerate back to 70mph)
The car needs a paint job too. I didn't want to buy another car; I would have to down size and really don't have the money for a monthly car payment for at least another year!
I bought this car 9 years ago from my mother in law estate after her passing it had only 56k little old lady miles on it. I can't afford to replace the same style of car. Is it worth to keep spending money???

What is the point of a air check system valve? Will it make u fail inspection?

replaced front wheel bearings and sensors. problem still there. Problem did not start until i replaced my front drivers side tire and the next day my back rear tire blew and had to be replaced. Not sure what to do? Or if i disable it will that damage the car. Please guide me.

My check engine light isn't on but on the message board it says service engine soon. What does that mean? It's a 1994 seville

Sometimes l will turn the ignition key and l get nothing at all. I move the gear shifter into park hard and it starts. Service steering system light comes on. I can be driving at 30 mph and the car will dies out then put in park snd it starts right away. WHAT CAN THIS BE PLEASE HELP

Hi Guys , I have come to this site toget an idea what the cost would be on a rebuilt transmission I guess, AnywayMy 96 Seville sls has had service engine light, trac light (on and off)and service transmission message for six years now . When it first started I had the transmision drained, no metal shaving; but was told by the Cadillac dealership shop that I needed to have my transmission rebuilt at the time car only had 76k that the Torque convertor seal was leaking. Well I didn't do anything else other than have it flushed and new fluid. Now six year later and 51k mile (127k miles now on her) and the service Transmission light message stays on and SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT stay on and I think she has started slipping out of overdrive. When I get onto the interstate and run 70mph for about 2 miles in overdrive
at 2100 rpms the rpms race up to 3000, I let off the gas, rpms come down I accelerate again and I'm fine. It
doesn't do it all the time and then it's intermittently. Some days it doesn't do it at all. Today I took my car to the mom and pop shop across from work and had them run a scan they are getting the codes P0741 & P1574. Same codes Advance Auto got but were free and Pop charged me $50 go figure! Pop said I could let it go until she gives out completely or go have it rebuilt. I just don'tunderstand, I guess being a girl why does the transmission need to be replace; why aren't going to fix mine, replace the seals, the solenoids and stuff and put it back in? They will replace it so why do they call it a rebuilt job? I just get a bad taste in my mouth; look six years ago they wanted me to spend $3500; glad I held off! Can you help? She also has a small oil leak back of the engine area which could be taken care of at the same time the trans work is being done right? The engine does burn oil about a quart between oil hanges (told that was normal for the Northstar engine). Update: Over the weekend I decided not to let off the as and see what would happen if I pushed her, not good, it was like it wasn't the transmission at all like she was misfiring rpms were up at 3000 at 75mph but she was
surging jerking...I had all plugs & plugwires replaced about 20k miles ago? Could this be a misfire? If so shouldn't the mechanic got a code on this too? Or is this the reason for the second code P1574? God what is a girl to do to find a good mechanic these days she
can trust? I'm not stupid but why do all shops what to keep you in the dark? I know they only see people when something is broke and we need em to fix it but come on don't take us to the cleaners! I really want her to be in good health I would like to keep her on the road for another 100k, instead of buying another car I would like to spend the money on her running like new, new paint is this a good idea I just need to find a good mechanic in south georgia!

I would like to replace my thermostat.

sometimes the message comes on, some days not. Replaced oil pressure switch at dealer and the message and sound was constant so they reinstalled my old part and I am back to the sporadic message and sound. It must be a false read. Dealer said oil pressure was at 12 psi at idle and increases with rpm it should be at 5 psi at idle. Now they say it might be a faulty ipc (instrument panel control). How can this be fixed or can the warning sound be disconnected, the message I can live with but the warning sound is irritating. Before the dealer experience, another shop said oil pressure was good and replaced the current oil switch. So the switch that I have is actually a replacement from the OEM part.

If I need to remove the climate control system, how is this done?

Heard a loud pop, car died and will not restart.

How do I repair this problem

I have been having problem after problem with this car lately it only has 86,000 miles on it & pretty much has been babied for lack of another word. Well my biggest problem lately is it started giving problems starting it would crank just not turn over noticed security light would come on have had to play a game of switch the keys around daily, well now car would not start without starting fluid that was up until today now car will not start even with starting fluid getting the message service fuel system and security light still blinks at different times no pattern in when light decides to blink or not blink. Only code I get that is Current is RFA 2560(think it's B2560 can't be for certain sorry)something to do with Remote Keyless Entry which could someone elaborate more on this as well please and thank you.

I have had problem after problem with this car, 2 major issues will not start unless starting fluid is sprayed & 2(new battery 1mo ago tested & is good battery) when idling(sitting at light, etc..) if I turn heat on the car battery will drain but when I start to drive battery goes up. Help ready to junk this car and its a shame its such a beauty. Thank You

Replaced fuel regulator, my mechanic said it was leaking, got car back. ran fine for a couple days, drove it a couple
more days and now car is randomly dying again.. Any advice would be appreciated. Car seems to run fine and just dies out of the blue..

it will not go into gear at that shifter. or how much to replace with remanufactured trans.

My Seville SLS is a beauty. However, the simulated ragtop (which is beige) has "print-thru" of the glue spreading all over the top. It is darker than the original factory beige color--making blemishes that embarrass the vehicle and me. At first I thought is was mold, but even if it is, it is coming from UNDERNEATH the fabric.

Is ther a re-color kit I can use to cover this...the rag itself is completely intact and not torn, so I'd hate to have to replace it altogether if there is another remedy. Searched the entire web with various keywords and can't find a solution. If you can, PLEASE HELP!!!

I'm getting a code "P-0303 Misfire Detected in Cylinder 3" from the emissions tester, so won't pass as the Service Engine Soon light keeps blinking. Spark plug in Cyl 3 had some oil on it. I blew out the socket, changed the rubber tube and the plug but the error will not remain cleared--keeps coming back. I wanted to switch the coil packs around to see if the problem is with the rear coil pack or something else instead. I can't drive with no tags/registration, so before taking to a shop I want to be certain what the problem is. ThanX!

Car won't accelerate but idles down the road just fine it will not go over 15mph any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I suspect catletic converter.

need tu fix to pass inspection

I was checking my fuses and when I got finished cleaning out the car. I then noticed the "security" code flashing.
