  1. 2008 CTS AWD Transmission problems

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Chill out silversport, each time I responded to a multi year old thread, it was because the thread popped up in a search and I did not see, or think to look for the tiny little date using smaller type font than the thread, being more focused on the relevance of the content. It's not like a...
  2. Problems with fuel injector circuit

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    My injectors some how ended up getting clogged. The car ran fine, but set lean idle codes for both banks. The long term fuel trims were nearly maxed out in the 30s as the PCM had adjusted them to deliver more fuel in order to maintain normal operation. Each time the codes were cleared until I...
  3. Problems with fuel injector circuit

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    You'll need to source the diagnostic procedure for those codes, because there are a number of things that can cause them. You will need to confirm your harness from the PCM to the injectors is intact end to end. Unplugging the injector harness and the PCM and checking continuity and presence of...
  4. 2011 CTS Key Problem

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    AAA uses independents so depending on who you get for a problem like this, taking care of the lost remote/key may not be a problem except for any necessary parts like the correct remote. In my case the rep used info contained in the PCM to program a Valet key turning it into a master key.
  5. How Do I Fix This???

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    That's a polished aluminum wheel and what you are seeing as a problem appears to be clear coat coat paint coming off. You should be able to use an aluminum wheel polish to reduce the contrast between the coated and uncoated area and make it look better, but the overall fix would be a strip...
  6. Strange behaviour, wheel alignment

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I understand as of recent that the front camber adjustment on the CTS requires a special tool that some, possibly many do not have and that might be why the left front toe was adjusted and the camber left as is. A before and after printout is a must as indeed some of the techs take a "green is...
  7. Wireless backup camera

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    That's just an optional path to consider, as many times, as was the case with the thread I was referring to, going through the dealer which the individual trying to complete a simple NAV unit replacement did, does not always result in a successful outcome. They were not able to VIN match it...
  8. All cylinders randomly misfiring??

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    The hard starts may be related. The fresh air feed into the crank case is to help clear out the combustion gases that get past the piston rings. If closing off that circuit makes the motor idle better, there has to be a problem with the normal operation of that circuit. There are a number of...
  9. All cylinders randomly misfiring??

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Close, it flows in the opposite direction, that's the fresh air feed into the crank case that goes out the other side to the intake. OP you would be wise to fix the real issue which is probably vacuum leaks associated with worn tubing and hoses, instead of bypassing a component that works fairly...
  10. Strange behaviour, wheel alignment

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I was just about to ask about the alignment printout. Your camber settings look like mine, the left front can use some work. If the steering wheel was VISUALLY off by that much perhaps someone needs to take a look at the steering linkage. The appearance of a steering wheel misalignment, followed...
  11. Fuel issue

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    As CaddyFred has advised, stop starting the car. With the severity you have described there is a risk of hydrolocking the motor. If the oil stinks of gas, it needs to be changed under the circumstances to avoid damage while it's being repaired during which time it will be started. High...
  12. Wireless backup camera

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    You should be able to, with the new territory being the wireless communication. You are probably familiar with the thread a good while back regarding the chip that contains the VIN location, and the means to reprogram the chip with the correct VIN on the board, vs. swapping the board with the...
  13. 2011 CTS 3.0 - U0073 and P0700

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I understand, just pointing out that they likely installed the OE drain system as opposed to aftermarket (or the complete OE sunroof), for the OP to end up with the same common problem. I know the drains would not be present from the factory without the roof. Removing the fenders at the owners...
  14. 2011 CTS 3.0 - U0073 and P0700

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Just thinking that it would make sense for an aftermarket outfit to use the original equipment drain system, which would have to be installed with the necessary modifications to attach to their unit, as opposed to reinventing the "wheel" by developing their own, considering several factory parts...
  15. 2011 CTS 3.0 - U0073 and P0700

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I assure you several members are viewing that question with the same expression. There are a number of threads devoted to it, as well as several new members like yourself because of it.
  16. 2011 CTS 3.0 - U0073 and P0700

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Interesting in regards to the aftermarket roof mod. That muddies the "water" a bit, but, "Whenever it rains hard enough or long enough", is the tip off for my asking, as when the situation you described comes up, it is almost always a result of a sunroof leak from the drains being over run and...
  17. 2011 CTS 3.0 - U0073 and P0700

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Million dollar question; Do you have a sunroof?
  18. Help! Plastic bag attacked and fused itself to muffler

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Probably took a wire wheel brush/ grinder to it. Abrasive sand paper on a power tool should make short work of it to.
  19. P0300 Random Misfire

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Keep an eye on the long term fuel trims. Bank 1 is -2.3%, bank 2 is +2.3% meaning that bank 1 baseline fuel delivery is slightly high and fuel is being trimmed down, which is what I noted with my replacement injectors which were within ~1% on the negative side between the banks at ~-4%. Your...
  20. Cadillac app FOB issue

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I was driving a 2019 Toyota Rav4 rental on a long trip this weekend and discovered they apparently share my sentiments regarding smart device connectivity to the on board infotainment system, note the projection option on the touch screen. I was not able to test it, but it's there. The...
