    Re: help my bls

    my alternator went a few days before Xmas in 2008 and was replaced.
    I have noticed a "knock" when selecting reverse but it's only a small one and never caused a problem,
    I've put it down to it just selcting the gear, mine doesnt happen all the time thought - does yours ?

    Re: help my bls

    Hi sorry for the late reply. the Knock on the gear box was cured by replacing the gear box. the Knock in the steering system was caused by the Airbag not being refitted properly after the replacement of the stability control system.

    they engine movement was reduced by new bushes on the mounts

    sorry i cannot be of any help to you. even with all the problems i still love my caddy but wish it was easier to get accessories for it.

    i am thinking of having the engine BHP increased to 180bhp as it is supposed to give a better fuel return.

    My diesel never gives more that 34mpg at bit disappointing as my Vectra same car gives 45 all the time.

    Re: help my bls

    Are auto box Caddy BLS's that poor on fuel return - 35 mpg? Perhaps it needs some further investigation? I'm very sorry you've had so many problems.

    My manual box returns on average between 47 and 52 mpg on a regular basis.

    Apologies, but I've never liked auto boxes, there's just no joy in driving them for me - just my opinion even if it does suck!
