Looking for some input. Just had my CTS finish its oil consumption test and the dealer changed the seals, tensioners and chains. Since then I have had an occasional smell of antifreeze and now the car will not turn over after it has run to normal temp. The car tries to crank but eventually just dies. After I let it sit for some time it started right up but is a little rough. Took a short trip to the local store and same thing happened again. Not sure if the repair and this issue are tied into each other but before I had the car in, the only problem was burning thru oil like it was free. Just replaced the battery little over one month ago

Re: 2006 CTS no starting after running.
I apologize that you are experiencing an issue with your CTS smelling like antifreeze and running rough. Have you reached back out to the dealership concerning this? If you would like, I could contact them and ask them if the repair would have anything to do with this. I would need you to private message me your name, contact info, VIN, mileage and dealership you were working with. I do see that you are a new user to the forum, if you are not able to message me privately, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as well. Thank you very much for your time.
