Engine problem
1997 Cadillac El Dorado V8 Front Wheel Drive 113000 miles

car started to loose power press on pedal and engine seems to flood out. I got it home and then could not start it engine seemed to fire briefly but would not run. I changed plugs and fuel filter and got it to start but it will only idle seems to still flood out when given little throttle. It will start at fuel psi of 12 slowly builds but only got to about 40psi max. Wondering if it could just be a sensor or maybe fuel pump? Trouble codes are
PCM P0101 current, P0603 history
IPC B1552 history
TCS B1552 history
RSS C1786 current, C1787 current
PZM B1552 history, B1982 history, B1983 history

I belive that 101 is a misfire code #1 cyl, and 603 is an egr code, RSS is rear shocks short to ground, that is normal fuel psi at 40-45, you dont have a stall code which is a 1599, you might try replacing the crank sensors, a relearn will have to be done afterwards through a tech 2 scan tool if it starts, try squrting carb cleaner in throttle plates first, if it starts its fuel, if it doesnt do the crank sensors, all the other codes, I wouldnt worry about there misc ones
