Question Answered: How to fix P0335 and P0727 error codes for Cadillac Catera 2000?

Owner: P0335 MAY mean the crank position sensor is failing, however, throwing the part at it may only frustrate you. Lab scope the crank sensor signal to make a positive diagnosis. P0727
is transmission related, but may go away if the crank sensor code is resolved, so address the P0335 code first. Good Luck !

Owner, I researched this through Alldata, and the Manufacturer does not provide

We agree with Fusion Automotive, and I would like to add, we recommend replacement of both the clutch Master and Slave cylinders simultaneously, to avoid contamination of the new part.
Question Answered: Problem with motor running too hot to my liking. I want to hotwire the fans for full-time operation. FL, where I love, is not like 99 degrees every day!

Owner, Unfortunately, running a lower temp thermostat can cause excess fuel consumption & long-term damage to the catalytic converter. That cooling fan is set to come on at about 230 degrees, and also runs more with the AC operating, if the engine is overheating, the radiator may be restricted, or I have seen aftermarket replacement fans which run the wrong direction, some things to check.
