    Hello, not sure if in correct forum location or not, computer idiot. I'm looking for help with problem with 06 CTS with 3.6 and 120k. Car has been well maintained and driven. New plugs at 100k. The major drivability problem I have with car (beside having to remove front end and adding a qt. of oil every 1000 miles). Every since 30-40k when I park the car for more than a couple of days and my first attempt to start the car it would stumble and misfire. Thinking that it was a battery problem I started putting a trickle charger on it, but the charger has not really helped beyond ruling out a battery/voltage problem. The misfire has gradually gotten worse. I just returned from a week long trip, before I left I put the car in the garage and put the trickle charger on a 2 month old battery. When I returned I checked battery voltage 12.95 volts. When I attemped to start car it started briefly but was stumblin and coughing very badly and shut off after a couple of seconds. On my next try the started did not sound normal at all and it would not start. I let it set for about 60 seconds and it fired up but with about the same results as first time, I gave it a few pats of gas and it gradually came to life, and it ran fine for the rest of the day. I replace the fuel and air intake filters about 3 months ago, and I alway turn the key on and pause a couple of seconds for the fuel pump to catch up before I hit starter. Any ideas or suggestions (except match in fuel tank) out there? Thanks Barry

    if you are having wiper troubles go to a junk yard and get a used wiper motor and put it on, that is the most cost effective way to repair. mine would come on by them selves all the time

    Here is my contribution..
    It's that time of year again and many are finding that the drivers seat is COLD after pressing the seat heater button.
    Here are a couple of links that may help you solve this common problem.

    I recently found this video on Youtube for changing spark plugs and coil packs and while there is a great write up on here already, this video does a pretty good job showing the process overall:

    Note: I did not make this video... I just found it with my googlefu skills!
