2002 Cadillac Catera 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 100, 00 miles
My Catera began to die after running for anywhere from several minutes to an hour. After this happened a few times over a period of about a week, the failure happened several times within an hour or two, causing me to take it to a repair shop where it was diagnosed as a fuel pump failure.
I paid $1,000 for a new pump, strainer, relay, and wiring adaptors to be installed. After the repair, I picked the car up and only managed to drive less than 5 miles before the car stopped again and began to exhibit the same symptoms - run for a few minutes then stop again.
The service shop towed the car back and now tells me the problem is the crank position sensor has failed and is completely independent of the fuel pump failure - just a coincidence of the timing and symptom. What's up?
have the same problem?
