    What would put my car into limp mode and how do I fix it?
    I cant afford to take it to the shop but I do have some mechanical experience and have some money for parts. The car is revving high(3000 rpm at a bout 35-40 mph). And won't pass 35- 40 mph. Only catches in second gear but park, neutral, and reverse still work.

    How do i troubleshoot my Cadillac DeVille that surges after a couple minutes of starting?
    My Caddy stopped running for a week. Went and brought new battery, plugs and wires. After i put those in it started right away, but after being on for about 5 minutes it acts like it wants to die again and it starts surging for a couple of minutes then dies.

      With what I've read it seems like you have tryed a few things and the only other thing I can think of without actually driving the vehicle is possibly a motor mount is bad, a strut is loose, Have you had your vehicle looked at at a suspension shop?

      P0741 - Torque Converter Circuit Performance or Stuck

      The torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid is faulty or stuck off. Look for a wiring problem or if you have access to one - a scan tool that will actuate the TCC for you.

      Possible causes:
      - Low transmission fluid level
      - Dirty transmission fluid
      - Faulty torque converter clutch solenoid valve
      - Torque converter clutch solenoid valve harness or connectors
      - Torque converter clutch solenoid valve circuit is open or shorted
      - Transmission internal mechanical problem

      An intake manifold vacuum leak can develop from a variety of sources, often causing illumination of the Check Engine Light with codes P0171 & P0174 stored. Thorough diagnosis will be necessary to pinpoint the cause in order to make the correct repairs. A "smoke" machine is often used to isolate the cause of difficult to find vacuum leaks.
