2000 Cadillac Seville Problems

Excessive Engine Oil Consumption

Vehicles equipped with the 4.6L engine may develop excessive oil consumption. Please be advised that under optimum driving conditions, using one quart of oil every 2000 miles is acceptable. This Cadillac standard applies to vehicles with less that 50,000 miles. Our technicians tell us that if you experience excessive oil consumption it may be caused by built up on the piston rings which restricts movement, preventing them from wiping all the oil from the cylinder walls. Oil left behind is then burned during the combustion process. There is a special ring cleaning procedure which can help this situation. The GM service bulletin number is #02-06-01-009C.

Misfire Due to Failed Ignition Coil

An ignition coil may fail causing one of the cylinders to misfire. Each of the two banks of cylinders has its own coil assembly. If one ignition coil fails the coil assembly for the corresponding cylinder bank must be replaced.

Fuel Level Sensor Failure

It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.

2000 Cadillac Seville Reviews

I bought a 2000 sls in 2007...it had 82,000 miles then and 125,000 now. I have replaced a coil pack and a heater core but for 125,000 miles the car is in really good shape! I plan on keeping it and doing some custom work to it...really like the look and the ride is awesome...good power too and at 29 m.p.g highway putting it on the road for a trip doesn't cost a fortune.
good car smooth quiet ride
