1996 Cadillac DeVille Northstar from North America
Problems starting the car when cold. Have had the fuel system checked out, and everything is OK there. Any ideas?
It has stalled twice when I slowed down in traffic. But started right up when placed in neutral and cranked. Any comments?
It is a great car overall, smooth ride, normal wear and tear, expensive parts of course
I advise you should be a handy mechanic to cut costs on labor.
My mom owns a Northstar as well in a Seville, no problems except the started went out at 100000. It went out again about 5000 miles later, bought at Oreilly. Maybe we can't use aftermarket starters, not sure.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Replace your fuel filter and battery. If that doesn't help I suggest a good tune up with plugs, wires, and coils all replaced. Good luck.

Check your catalytic converter(s). If it is clogged the added back pressure in the exhaust could cause your engine to stall when slowing down or accelerating.

Where is the starter located at on a 97 cadillac?
