  1. 2011 - Skipping / Misfire at Idle

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Intake gaskets. I think there is a propane test you can do to check this.
  2. Stuck on HWY

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    out of gas and fuel gage stuck?

  4. 07 Escalade Headers

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    The driver's side likes to break. It makes an odd thump on acceleration when it does, which is the engine lifting on the driver's side more than normal.
  5. 07 Escalade Headers

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Not too bad. I did have to cut the flange off the flex pipe and weld a reducer cone on to adapt it to the one that came with the headers. I did the engine mounts while I was in there, because they are easy to get to with the manifolds off.

    There's no way your entire engine is in need of replacement, given the noise that it is making. However, there is a "replace with like or rebuilt" trend that is growing because of the lack of competent mechanics who can successfully rebuild an engine. I would find a better shop or independent...

    I use ebay and Amazon for auto parts, or Rockauto.com.

    Remote start was standard. If your boards are stuck, they can be unbolted and the gearboxes can be disassembled and greased to free them up. Nav disks are on ebay for 40-100 bucks, but I use Waze on my phone for any trip (it is awesome), so I don't even use the factory nav.

    No problem, glad to help! The 2011 has Displacement on Demand (DoD), which has lifters that fail more often. Over on the 2015+ Escalade board they are having failures already.

    No worries, Yep, mine had broken bolts, which create a cold ticking that goes away as the engine warms up. The noise is load-related, so when you rev the engine it is louder than when it floats back down to idle unfueled. In this case, the noise is more consistent and is less of a...

    Most likely your Escalade will need a new cam and lifters.

    That's not an exhaust leak. Likely it is a stuck lifter. What year is your Esky?
  15. Engine won't stop after key is turned off.

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    If your steering wheel locks with the key out and it is a 2007, someone replaced the column with a newer one at some point (2007 steering columns did not have a locking feature). I'd check the wiring all around the column in that case.
  16. NEWBIE - Winter tires

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    4 spare steel wheels (same wheel as used with the spare tire under the rear) with 17" 265/70/17 snow tires are a good solution. Costco is having a tire sale on Michelins right now.
  17. Ticking coming from my 2009 EXT

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    I did mine with an $89 Harbor Freight MIG welder. It was the rear passenger side bolt, broke off flush to the head. You take the plastic inner fender liner off to get access to the manifold, take the manifold off, then you can do the extraction(s). Here is how:

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    That is 100% a broken rearmost exhaust manifold bolt.
  19. Deciding on buying a 2007+ Escalade to replace my 2006 model

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Some thoughts on the one in Atlanta: Factory nav is garbage compared with any modern cellphone app (Waze, Google Maps, etc.) - so no biggie not having it Heated steering wheel is nice, when it works (mine stopped working several years ago) - this does not have the option Originally it was in CA...
  20. Deciding on buying a 2007+ Escalade to replace my 2006 model

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Except for the change to rack&pinion steering, the GMT900 is mechanically very similar to the GMT800. Seats are actually less comfortable in the 900. The exterior&interior design is updated, which is what sold most 900s. If you want one, I would find a southern example with no frame rust - as...
