I've really enjoyed this app. reading on problems, and trouble shooting. Now I have one of my own. In my 2000 esc I'm pretty sure mass airflow it's acting up. Seems like when I got something important to do it just won't start. Since this is my work horse I need it. That being said, it's happened before, but lately it revs high, then fine. Drive bout thirty miles this morning. No prob. Ran in corner store, two minutes tops. Now it starts but cuts off immediately. My question.....any way I can look under hood for air flow prob? Our call my nemesis the tow truck?

Re: love this place

I love those old coupes.

I'm bumping your thread over into a technical discussion area, out of the lounge.

Good luck.

---------------------
the very first step is ALWAYS - check for Diagnostic Trouble Codes -

if you don't know how - go here and read the ENTIRE post -

http://www.cadillacforums.com/forum...ncluding-1985/138257-how-pull-codes-dtcs.html

if you have any codes - post them here -
ALONG WITH THEIR DEFINITIONS -

and this should have been posted in the ELDORADO forum -
