    Yes I clicked on the link... This is what he used to get to the CKP or the CPS whatever it may be, from I was informed on is that he want's to know what he is looking at and what he will be taking apart so he can get to the sensor take it off and replace it.

    Pictures of what has to be removed are in the thread.

    If he's wondering what the sensor looks like, just look at the new one. I assume he'll have it when he starts the job. Or find the part online, there are usually pictures.

    If he's wondering exactly where it is, follow the wire pictured in the thread. It's visible from under the car, near the oil filter. Held on with one bolt.

    There's a diagram here, but not very good:

    Well from what I seen that's pose to be the connector, and to take the CKS off it's on the left rear of the engine block. Now please check me if I am wrong!!!!!

    Ok, because I know most Cadillac owners use Acldelco parts, and Acdelco on my 01 STS.

    What size group is the Catera for a car battery???

    probably he misplaced something or maybe some wire is not connected.

    Another possibility might be bad coils or have to relearn throttle body in case he removed it or maybe a vacuum leak somewhere.

    ----------

    also, try unplugging the Mass airflow sensor and see what it does. It could be a MAS sensor too.

    I hope that you figure it out. This way you will have time for the next problem. They always come in "sixes."

    LOL!!! I hope we do, because parts are free because of the company her dad works for but its going to be the labor that kills us when & if something goes wrong.
