Engine Performance problem
1997 Cadillac Seville V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 72000 miles
Ever since fall of 2007 I have had starting issues with my car. When it is cold or hot, its fine. However, after being run then sitting for around an hour, it cranks for about 5 - 10 seconds before starting at a low bog. Then I noticed the coolant was dissapearing and I smelled anti - freeze in the front area and in the cab of the car. Had dye test preformed and came back good. And there are no puddles that I can find anywhere. My friend was fallowing me the other day and said there was white / blue smoke coming from my tail pipes if that is related at all. Even more recently, the car lost alot of power and shutters like it wants to stall. Especially going up hills or when I need that extra kick of power. Just replaced fuel filter hoping for a quick fix but no luck and it keeps getting worse. I love the car and so does my dad. I dont want to get rid of it, but is it really worth keeping with the repairs that need to be done with it. Thanks in advance for your time and helpfullness.
have the same problem?
