Cadillac Repair/1992 cadillac seville repair


MR. Painter,  I recently talked to you my 1992 Seville and it's problem of starting and stalling after warm-up and then not being able to start after warm up. My mechanic say's he is not sure why it stalls and unable to start when warm. Any ideas on where he should look to determine cause?


I would love to give you an answer but even your mechanic Han advantage over me because he at least can see the symptoms  because he is looking at the vehicle. This like telling me there is a rattle in the rear and asking how much to repair.
I am totally in the blind here.  I can't even begin to guess.
This isn't the car that had the fuel filter replaced and the mechanic said he found no dirt is it?
If so I gave some recommendations as to get water out of the tank. If not, disregard,

Alarm system questions cannot be answered on this forum. These systems are not what I can answer. Without being physically at the vehicle and not knowing what kind of electrical service has been done on the vehicle, there is no possible way to give an accurate answer over the internet. My expertise is in Ignition/key based anti-theft systems. These issues include GM VATS (resistor chip in key blade) PASSLOCK (MRD)-ignition lock rotation based, no special ignition key and the PKIII Transponder (computer chip in key) systems. These systems are not alarm based and are integral with the starting of the engine. This is why I cannot diagnose alarm problems without physically looking at the vehicle: Alarm systems are a completely different annimal than ignition key/lock based anti-theft system. Many alarm questions come from vehicles 10 years old, and since older, many hands that had been involved over the years.I am an expert in all GM factory (ignition/key based)systems. Alarm system questions pose to many situations beyond my knowledge as to what has been done to the vehicle over the years. Some guy may have actually wired the stereo into the alarm system. Who knows? Over my past 30 years in vehicle wiring repair, I have seen unbelievable wiring disaters done by guys that consider themselves "mechanics." I have seen stereos and alarms intalled using surgical tape. I have seen modules burn up, un-fused circuits, wiring jambed between the doors and even lamp cord used for a starter kill. To answer alarm questions over the internet without examining the vehicle is like asking; What does it take to remove a dent?
