  1. What else to do when motor is cracked open for valve cover gaskets?

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    Honestly...still haven't gotten around to it. Life happened, things changed, my Chevy truck has become the daily, and the Caddy barely gets driven anymore. Basically just enough to keep the battery charged, keep the fuel pump from seizing, and keep the fuel from going stale. I hope to get to...
  2. 2006 control arm bushings...same as CTS?

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    Rockauto...even Carid wants $150+ per arm. $600+ is a lot of money for 4 bushings...oddly, the V and Magneride arms are cheaper than the base model stuff..
  3. 2006 control arm bushings...same as CTS?

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    Oops, forgot key specifics, and I can't see anywhere to edit the thread on my phone - car is a STS 4.6L V8 RWD.
  4. 2006 control arm bushings...same as CTS?

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    While tracking down an alignment issue on the front end today, I noticed all 4 upper control arm bushings are cracked. No one appears to sell just the bushings by themselves, and holy heck, complete arms are expensive! I see poly bushings can be had for the CTS, and a couple parts places...
  5. I think I need a new DDM, but want to make sure

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    DDSM - Drivers Door Switch Module DDM - Driver's Door Module. Yes, confusing as all hell, lol. DDSM is the switch pack.
  6. Water in drivers side door module

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    Went through a similar with my 2006 when I first bought it last year, I think March or April..ish, and if memory serves, NONE of the power options worked when using the switches on any of the doors. None of the windows would open, couldn't adjust the mirrors, door locks didn't work, trunk...
  7. Solid rear diff bushings?

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    Looking over a few threads about the rear differential bushings blowing out...other than increased vibrations, is there any other reason it would be a bad idea to run a solid block in place of the bushing? I've got a machine shop in the garage, and turning a block to fill it would be simple. I...
  8. My steering wheel feels... loose. I can shift it side to side.

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    Start a new thread, rather than revive one that's nearly 5 years old and not related.
  9. Why the manual on a automatic?

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Mine lags too. It could be skewed expectations, as this is the first automatic I've driven in a "performance" car in over a decade that I didn't build, and I'm used to manual valvebodies. As it is, I can get nearly a full 1,000rpm climb between the time I smack the shifter and when it actually...
  10. Hood struts...whats the difference between the 15845091 and whatever else was used?

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    That's interesting. I know my trunk lifts are shot as well, but it seemed like the hinges are set up in a way that once it's fully open, it goes far enough past vertical that it would just naturally hold itself open. Though maybe there's just barely enough pressure in them left to hold the...
  11. Hood struts...whats the difference between the 15845091 and whatever else was used?

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    Turned out the semi local dealer has the OEM hood strut for about $3 dollars more than the local parts store aftermarket unit. Still ended up being about twice as much as something from RockAuto, but it's a small enough difference that I'm OK with it.
  12. Blinking red reverse sensor light.

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    Does it work properly in reverse?
  13. STS "infotainment" center evolution and xm module location question

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    Maybe not...there appears to be enough room to run a double din unit under the factory non nav radio. I've even been considering swapping my factory nav set up for a non nav radio specifically to put a double din in below it, though I need to dig out one of my old units to see how much room...
  14. STS "infotainment" center evolution and xm module location question

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    Joying units? I have one of their older double DIN units running Android 5.0 on the bench from an older car, and a 7" screen Android 6.0 single Din in the Fiero. Both have been working excellent, though I miss the better audio control of my Pioneer units. I've been pondering picking up...
  15. What else to do when motor is cracked open for valve cover gaskets?

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    Going to order up a valve cover gasket set for the '06 4.6L V8...smelling the odor of burnt oil when parking is getting old..been doing some searching hoping to find a general list of other things to do "while it's apart", and nothing finding anything. Google brought up several hits for the...
  16. Hood struts...whats the difference between the 15845091 and whatever else was used?

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    Need a new hood lift support strut as well as both trunk supports for the '06. Looking at Rockauto, and most listings for the hood say "except 15845091", which of course, is what's currently on the car. Is this a case of aftermarket parts catalogs being goofy, and none of them actually fit the...
  17. Why the manual on a automatic?

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    That actually makes sense. I have been running my STS a bit harder the last few days (because oh my, that N* sure does sing a sweet tune when it's wound up)...I got on it pretty hard getting on to the freeway this morning, and found the rear end getting a bit loose along with feeling like it...
  18. Door lock switch question

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    So they're likely SMD LEDs then...but for $80, it's almost not even worth my time to deal with attempting to replace them.
  19. 2010 STS drivers AND passenger windows won't work

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    DDSM - Driver door switch module. Or in other words, the big switch pack that includes the window switches and mirror controls. Literally just went through this with my '06 a week ago. Same thing - nothing worked - none of the windows from any door switch, door locks, mirrors or trunk...
  20. Why the manual on a automatic?

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    So the short of it is that it's really nothing more than a slightly less convenient method of gear selection, just as we have been doing for decades by pulling the shifter further down past D. Frankly, I'd rather just have the old style shifter, with detents for each gear...though I suppose...
