    Rough idling 3.6? Loud valve noise?

    Do any of you have a 3.6 cts with rough idle?
    It feels like cars about to stall but it doesn't. I was told that cadillac is working on flash to solve that issue. (My car has rough idles sometimes)

    Do any of you hear loud clicking noise from engine bay?
    There is supposedly a bulletin board out for it. They will replace the engine cover with little bit more insulator to prevent valve noise leaking through. (Which really doesn't fix the noise issue but only covers it)


    Everytime i went out for a testdrive or complained about above issues and few more, i was told that they couldn't duplicate the issue or it's normal but yesterday when i out for a test drive with a different mechanic, cadillac knows about the issues above

    So that I can keep my ears to the ground, at what mileage point do you guess the problem first began?

    i think i noticed both issues pretty early. Rough idle issue doens't happen often but it's very noticeable towards my 2hour drive usually

    i don't know if i just got used to the idle quality or it disappeared. Going from northstar to this and back to northstar maybe the reason why i noticed it.
