  1. Dealership is less than helpful

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I have an 06 V with a few mods, cat backs, ported input manifold and throttle body, and a Lingenfelter cold air intake. Had a performance tune a couple of years ago and everything worked great for a couple of years until I cleaned and reoiled the air filter. I started getting the dreaded...

    I currently own a 05 Nissan Maxima loaded out with every option and I have been eyeballing a 05 black CTS with every option minus navigation.

  4. How low to let OIL LIFE MONITOR go?

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    2006 STS 1SC Mine is at 19%. The local caddy dealer is having a special. For approx. $75 I can get a Mobil 1 oil change, new rain-x wipers, a wash, and a 27 point inspection. I figure the extras are probably worth the $20 or so I have left in my oil life. What do you all think?
  5. Feels like a slight mis in '03 STS

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Start the car up and it feels like my '02 Z28. You can barely feel or hear it but I take notice of these things. These things idle like sewing machines so hence my concern. I think there is a drop in midrange performance. Gas mileage is slightly suffering. Was going to check the plugs till...

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I think I have found the access point, but cannot get the filter out. Is there a "trick" ? I have tried everything. The car has been sitting; would that have anything to do with it? Any help would be appreciated. R Dennis

  10. Oil filter question

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    So, the owner's manual of my 1990 Deville says to use AC Delco PF-45 oil filter for replacements. The filter on my car now has a PF-61 filter on it and I have another PF-61 on the shelf. Did they discontinue the PF-45 filter? I'm trying to figure out why I would have a different filter on the...

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Installing the filter element in a 2010 CTS 3.6 I lubricated the rubber gaskets on either end and attempted to slip over the oil input tube at the base of the cartridge container. I tried pushing the filter down on the tube while slowly rotating it but the strength of the filter element was...

  13. May have been asked... (fuel filter & dis. rotor)

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    As the title says this probably has been discussed already and I did search the forum some, but I didn't exactly find what I'm seeking or it wasn't for my Caddy's year. So here I go: What would be the best fuel filter to buy for my Caddy? ACDelco too? I've found these for ACDelco...
  14. Fuel Filter rusted solid- ideas?

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I'm trying to change the fuel filter on my 2000 STS. 140k miles, and I think it's original to the car (yes, you can start yelling at me now). The quick disconnect obviously came right off, but the threaded end is locked on solid with rust. Here are my ideas: 1) Spray it with penetrating lube...
  15. Replacing Fuel Filter - how does it come out of that bracket?

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    1996 Seville and I'm trying to get the old fuel filter out of the clamp/bracket that is holding it in place. It surrounds it like a belt but it won't slide out. There looks like a plastic snap on the backside but I didn't want to try and pry it any harder fearing it may break. Is it that snap...

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I just inspected the cabin filter as I did the regular one last week. The cabin filter was far dirtier . I only have 16,000 miles on it. Surprizing. Easy change, just remember to put the wipers straight up, remove the rubber on the ledge carefully, 7mm hex socket,watch the hex screws, don't...
