HELP........I TOO HAVE AN 07 Escalade. Was driving last week from NC to AZ towing my sons vw gti on an auto transporter . The first day which was the hardest because of up and down hills it did great. The second day about half way through I pulled into gas station and it stalled as I was pulling into pump. Tried to start and. It cranked but would not start. Got gas and went to restroom and tried again . This time it started but when it did it had no power and was barely running for like 2 -3 seconds then resumed normal idle. 3-4 hours later after running fine on the highway at the. Next gas station it did it again . This time called AAA had the vehicle towed and dropped the VW off the transporter off and had my wife drive it. Caddy dealer in NM had it for a day and could not duplicate or find nothing wrong. Continued our trip without transporter driving 2 vehicles. stopped for gas once and it did not stall. next stop was our destination in Phoenix . I came off highway to exit and hit a red light and it stalled. Restarted after 5 mins again low power at first and drove it right to Caddy dealer . After 3 days no luck at duplicating and no codes tripped. Also fuel pump was tested and checked out ok. It is out of warranty and I don't want to start throwing money at it guessing what's wrong ..........I do not want to trade it in . We love the vehicle bunt my wife is scared to drive it . It has 84 k if that helps .....Thanks. !

I have the same problem with an 07, runs fine on the highway and around town. After running about a half hour and it gets hot, it will stall at a light. It won't fire up with starting fluid but will start after cranking with the throttle full open (which doesn't make any sense) Replaced crankshaft sensors and throttle body sensor. No codes. Please post on what or if you finally found the problem.

Do a search on this forum for "camshaft actuator". I replaced mine after similar issues. I also changed the oil a couple of times within 1000 miles and switched it to synthetic. (I bought mine second hand and have no idea what type of oil the previous owner used). My theory is that the VVT system sticks on and won't let the cam advance to the correct valve timing when the rpms drop so it runs rough and stalls when it returns to idle.

I have an 07 Escalade EXT with 100K on it. When this started happening, I changed out the crankshaft sensors, no change. I cleaned the throttle body, no change. I changed out the throttle valve sensor and controller, no change. I thought that it might be the ECM getting hot, poured two gallons of cold water over it the next time it acted up, no change. I had a fuel pressure meter hooked up when it stalled, the pressure did not drop down from 60-50 until after it died. The car has been serviced regularly. The dealership that this car was purchased from is of no help. I'm getting disappointed with Cadillac, especially when there have been so many posts on this site with the same problem, and they don't have a solution to fix the problem. I never have any problem with the vehicle stalling around town. It performs perfectly on the open road. It only stalls after getting hot. It was a little bit of a problem when it stalled iin rush hour traffic on the 210 freeway. The only way to keep it from stalling is to keep the rpm's up. Does anyone have any other recommendations?

My truck experienced the same problem, and it was solved by new plugs/wires, cleaning of the throttle body, and replacing the camshaft actuator.

Try a few cans of dry gas, you may have some water in the fuel filter that acts up from time to time, sounds strange but we just had this happen to a customer

I had this problem most of last summer!!!! I have an 07. As everyone states, it is hard to duplicate at the right time for the dealer. My truck also died and would not start. Had it towed to dealer a couple times and couldn't duplicate issue. I have a thread on here somewhere. I had an open invite after a few times to drive it to dealer if/when it acted up again because they wanted to help me fix it. So after driving out of town for an hour to go riding off road vehicles I was trailering, it stalled. I immediately turned around and called my service advisor and said I'm on my way. He told me to come in and he'd have the techs hook fuel gauges and the computer to monitor codes when I got there. They drove around town with me and the trailer hooked up on and alas! It stalled! But there were no codes and no drops in fuel pressure. They were puzzled.... We couldn't figure out why it was doing it. He told me he'd like to research it and try to find out what was going on. I involved Cadillac customer service because my warranty was about to be up.. so while the advisor was researching over the next few days I replaced the camshaft position sensor, throttle body, plugs, wires, air filter, cleaned the maf sensor and none of it did a thing still stalled. I went back to dealer and he handed me a bottle of fuel injector cleaner..or some other type of industrial cleaner to pour in my gas tank (I can't remember the name of it). It was a black can with yellow writing on it. He told me it wasn't something I could buy off the shelf but give it a try run a full tank of gas and then try to tow again. It never happened after that. Oh.. and one other thing. I changed the oil. Sounds weird but one of the posts on here said something about maybe an oil filter being "loose" or something. I have always used mobil 5w30 synthetic as well. Those last two things (oil change / fluid from caddy dealer in tank) have stopped my issue (fingers crossed). It didn't happen the rest of the summer.

Techron gas treatment is a great product, GM dealership turned me on to it 20 years ago, dump a can every 5k miles
