  1. Yes, Elizabeth, there are American crocodiles!

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Apparently there really are American crocodiles living in the the United States. While only present in the most southerly counties of Florida (the American crocodile cannot toleraterate temperatures of 60 degrees F or lower) and the Florida keys. Unlike the alligator, which flourishes throughout...
  2. Diff whine? Driveshaft center bearing? CV joint gone bad???? Please Help!

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Frickin A. I just spent the last couple days putting a new differential in my '04 only to discover that the exact same whine/hum is still there. The diff is brand spankin' new. My car developed an odd whine/hum somewhere along a 200mi drive. The noise wasn't there when I left my house, but as I...

  4. Pics from Rock 'n August 2010

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Rock 'n August is an annual week-long event in St. Albert, Alberta that's all about classic cars. There are various events throughout the week such as a cruise, drive-in movie, dinners, and an all-day show 'n shine to conclude the week (which is what I went to). I was hoping there would be more...
  5. Installed a Magnacharger supercharger, custom reservoir, HEX and pump last weekend

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    I did an install over the weekend to a 2008 Escalade. I thought I would play around and customize the Maggie and make it more efficient in cooling. As you can see in the photos below, I fabricated a much larger HEX in place of the factory one. I also installed a 20gpm pump right next to it on...
  6. Radio turns off after 5 seconds - 2000 STS, Bose, CD/Cassette

    Cadillac Audio, Video and Security Systems
    Driving down the road the other day, my stereo turned off. I hit the power button several times but it won't turn back on. The next day, I start up the car and hit the power button. It turns on, but only lasts about 5 seconds and turns off. The time display is still there, so it's not...
  7. Fingers crossed everyone....picking up the Brougham after work.

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Okay, So in follow up to my earlier post about the slugfest that is my Brougham going up a hill....it's at the shop for a full tune up today. The mechanic took it for a drive up and down the escarpment access and said it was misfiring at lock-up, whatever that (lockup) means. I know I was...
  8. Stopping windows mid-way ...

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I like the express power windows, but every now and then I want to stop them mid-way. With the window already open, no problem stopping them on their way up ... just pull up momentarily on the switch to make them stop. BUT ... this doesn't work if you have them closed and want to stop them...
  9. 08 DI timing chain SECOND replacement

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    The old stretched timing chain story again. Replaced first time at 14,000. Dealer is replacing a SECOND time at 24,500. What's the REAL story here? More than one replacement for anyone else? Also had left bank cam shimmed a while back. Lease is up in 3 months & was thinking about maybe...
  10. Want to upgrade exhaust

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Looking to upgrade my 09's exhaust. While I'm at it "thinking" adding headers and modified (sufficient enough to get me thru inspection) cats too. There's a lower pulley upgrade in the future. :yup: Knowing the Corsa's have low drone technology, having used a set on my 03 C5 Coupe, at idle I...
  11. rear end question

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I tried a search and didn't find much. Car has been great, I have 145K on it so far.... I have dropped it with FE4's from a V (with springs), and I swapped rear diff fluid with 75W140 RP. It began making a groaning noise starting about 45MPH. It hasn't really gotten much worse, but I thought...
  12. In case you thought of buying a Benz....

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    When I was shopping for my 08 CTS I have to admit that one of the other cars I was considering was an E Series MBenz. I am so glad I didn't get one. Here is an interesting page about the "joys" of Mercedes ownership. Mercedes Benz Lemon Problem Vehicles Pick a series...read the "Experience...
  13. Thought you guys might get a kick out of this (mileage pic)

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Still going strong. Need to do the plugs though. :)
  14. Cracked Block? Thought it was rare

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    I now have seen 2 with cracked blocks. the first one I figured was due to the owner running water in the winter but now I have another one that had antifreeze in it. The owner said it was running fine then the temp spiked.The cracks are halfway up the cylinder about 6 + inches long spanning...
  15. Jesda, Have you thought of Giving Ducky?

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Knowing your attraction to different and unique automobiles ... have you given any thought to giving Ducky the Chrysler LeBaron Town & Country treatment? Could be quite striking and at least it wouldhandle better than its' inspiration! The wood applique surrounded by a contrasting border of...

  17. I never thought I'd have a question about HIDs but...

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Ok so I have an '04 CTS with stock halogen bulbs. I want to upgrade to HID lights. I thought I knew what there is to know, but after reading around, some people say an HID kit is not a good idea with my stock projectors. Now I must ask: -Stock headlight housing/projectors good with HID kit? -IS...
  18. You thought Northstars ran hot? How about a copper Chevy?

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    http://auto.howstuffworks.com/1923-chevrolet-series-m-copper-cooled.htm I wonder how they reached 500 units without thorough testing? I guess manufacturing and design processes were less advanced in the 1920s.
  19. Need your thought on ugly ass bumper valence

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    hello all, you know that gray section on the lower end of the back bumper on the sts...i think it is quite ugly has anyone done anything about it to replace or match it to their body paint? i came across this ad on ebay and was wondering if anyone had any thoughts about it or personal...
