    Congrats and good luck with it. Car looks sharp. I see you picked it up in Jersey? Or was it delivered? Where in NY are you?

    Any of you guys hear a tapping sound in the engine area of those 2008 STS ? I have a "black cherry with cashmere" one that drives me crazy with that direct injection 3.6, v6 ;.. fuel pump tapping sound in the engine area ! AM I the ONLY ONE HEARING THESE D.I. 3.6 V6s ?!

    ----------

    Anyhow,.. congrats NYJazzman, and good fortune to you ! Beautiful car !

    According to cadillac this is normal behavior of the di v6. Cts owners have the same thing. My buddy's 08 cts di v6 does it.

    I have owned my 2008 V6 DI for five years and it doesn't do it an never has. If I listen carefully outside near the front I can faintly hear the injectors.

    Just google tapping noise engine 3.6l direct injection and its everywhere. Some people get lucky and don't have the issue but you'll see that the problem is prevalent and is described by GM as normal. So no, you're not the only one hearing this noise.
