Question type: Maintenance & Repair

attempts to start it

1 Answer

It sure will if clogged, fuel starvation. I know little about Cadillac's but that is generic automotive knowledge. Now, I feel the need to warn you about the odor of gasoline. Whenever you can smell raw gasoline there is a source of gas that can cause a fire that can overwhelm you before you realize what is happening. Please be careful
