  1. How much engine vibration is too much?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Just bought the V about 5 days ago. I am curious if anyone can quantify how much vibration is too much. At a stoplight, I can feel the lope of the engine idling. Not sure if this is just natural, or an indication of worn motor mounts/tranny mounts. The car is a 2004 with ~29.7k miles. I have...

    I have this screeching noise occasionally coming from the front brakes when I apply them, I was just wondering what it might be and how I could fix it?
  3. 1995 deville vibration from ac compressor

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Just got a new factory compressor installed, it was ok for about few, then a strange vibration can be heard when the compressor is on, it goes on and off depending on speed. Could this be the belt? its brand new also since i had a shorter belt on to bypass the ac, it blows cold but once i...
  4. Drone/ Slight Vibration in Driveline Getting Worst - Ideas on what to look for?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Hi Guys, I have had a very slight drone in my driveline for about 3500 miles, and I thought it was normal... But for the last 2000 miles it seemed to be steadily more noticeable, and now recently in the last 600 miles it is getting louder and noticeably worst - and don't like driving it over 55...
  5. @50MPH & above; Doggy and slight vibration

    HT4100 4.1, 4.5, 4.9
    Hello. On my '83 De-ville w/4.1 I've been told that its not tranny or electrical, it's fuel! ( There are new tires and balanced.) My gas tank is new, I've replace the fuel pump w/new fuel strainer. I've replaced the inline fuel filter and some gas line. No improvement! My fuel pressure before...
  6. 2005 STS V8 73K vibration at idle

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    Hello everyone, newbie to the forum. For the last week or so I have noticed a vibration when my car is in gear at a complete stop. Kinda feels like the motor is running rough. Check all fluids (ie. oil, coolant, etc) and so far it's nothing obvious. It's still under warranty, but i was hoping...

  8. So it's been 8 months since the vibration started

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    8 months I've been trying to get the vibration to go away on my car....I either get told it's in my head or that its the road I'm feeling and they can't fix that. If its the "road" then my cadillac drives worse then my wifes Kia cause her car is comfortable/smooth on the highway and mine feels...
  9. Vibration

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Lately I have been getting a vibration from my right front wheel. The intensity of the vibration will change depending on the speed I travel. I took it to Sam's and had my buddy balance the tire, but it only helped slightly. My dad said that it could be the tire, so tonight I decided to rotate...

    Well, I got the car on the road today for the first time..took it on the thruway and was greeted with vibrations between 50 and 70 mph..The tires are brand new this month, so they must have been balanced..I did have a 4 wheel alignment done because the car was slightly out of line. That did not...

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    I have a 2002 Escalade AWD with 118K miles. Ever since I have owned this truck after we drive it on the interstate for a while, the front end actually feels like it is going to fall off the vehicle(my wifes description), once we got off the interstate. It only does it at very slow speeds, like...
  13. Engine Mis And Vibration

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    The check engine light comes on at highway speeds. When I let up on the gas pedal the rpm dropped to idle, and then the check engine light turned off. The engine vibrates/misses when accelerating at speeds below 60 mph. Note the cruise control would not engage. The Cadillac dealer...

    Howdy - I have an 05 ESV Platinum. There is a vibration felt throughout the vehicle at highway speeds. Not all the time, but mostly after coming around a bend in the road. Usually during this time the vehicle is loaded up for travel. It shakes the seat backs, you can see the cargo moving...

    The whole car vibrates while in gear and stopped with my foot on the brake. It is made worse when the A/C is on. No vibration when idleing in park or neutral. Any ideas? motor mounts perhaps?
  19. Very High-Frequency Steering Wheel Vibration

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I've had my V now for just about 2 months, and have just under 1700 miles on the clock. Absolutely love it so far, but for some minor interior trim noise issues that I hope to have addressed next time it goes in for service. Today I took it out for a nice spin during lunch and for the second...

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    Get this. I have a 2006 STS w/ AWD. 108k miles on it. A while back, I started developing a bad shimmy/shake. Last purchase put some REALLY crappy Kuhmo Ecsta Platinums on my car, and thought maybe I just lost a wheel weight. Anyhow, I decided to fix it. I replaced the tires (the Kuhmo's NEVER...
