      First step - check the transmission fluid level and refill as necessary. The noted slow to engage is not a good indication. How many miles on the transmission? How many miles since the last service; fluid and filter change?

    Front left wheel heats up quickly smokes and seems to be binding
    Have changed caliper and pads made no difference. Changed wheelbearing hub no difference. Could the front wheel drive mechanism heat up that much?

      Check the brake hoses, gum residue plugged up the hose and stopped the brake fluid to flow back to the reservoir.

    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.

      You have no choice on taking it to a repair shop or dealer

      You need professional tools,knowledge,experience & lots
      of info to learn the vehicles systems before you even start
      testing for a problem

      Sounds like a failed transmission

      That with be $3,500 to rebuild or install a reman

      Now What ??

    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?

    Car won't drive. It turns on and will drive for a couple seconds then it won't move. I can put it in reverse drive.
    My cadillac srx will only drive for a little bit. It never jumped like the transmission was going out before this happened. I was a mile from my house and it just stopped! Someone help please!

      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.
