  1. 2005 ESV idle question

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    I'm currently looking at used 2005 ESV, and after starting it, it idled rough for about a minute. The man selling it said it was a computer feature so the car and heat/A/C would get to optimal temperatures before driving the car. The seller owns his own autobody, and is restoring cars, but I...

    Hey All, Long time lurker here and finally decided to take the dive in. My truck started making a ticking noise that isn’t too loud when idling if at all present but when I accelerate it picks up. It’s very noticeable and so far the only remedy is to turn on the radio. The truck came from the...

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    So I searched and could not find the answer to this problem. My service engine soon light came on and my car could not switch my fans into high speed, so my car could not cool off. I would get to 230 and it would stay there. I took it to the mechanic today and he found that the main 30a fuse...

    I have a 2007 2.8L 6spd. I was changing my oil and checking all of my fluids and everything looked good, except for the tiny manual transmission fluid resevoir (just in front of the coolant tank on the driver side). It is empty, but I can't tell how long it has been like that. Also my car has...
  11. 1997 Eldorada catalytic convertor do front flange bolts have springs for flexing ?

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    The front flange of catalytic convertor bolts directly to exhaust pipe flange of motor. Engine pipe has a flexing bellows built in but I feel catalytic convertor should have flex springs on clamping bolts for further relief of flexing what is stock? Thanks

  14. Dies & says no fuel with fuel present '00 sts

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I bought a 2000 Seville and did a HG replacement. Once it was all back together and good to go I made sure to add 5 gal of premium to the tank so I knew it had fresh gas. (the gauge was low/empty when I bought the car and wasn't sure how long it had sat...) I was taking it for a drive (bout...

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Hello, I have a 1999 STS and have been having problems with either the ignition key or some other problem I have not been able to figure out.

  17. I have a sound that needs identifying too..

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    On ETC, when I floor it from a stop, there is a split second groaning noise that is similar to the sound traction control makes when active, or ABS -- however there is no accompanying shudder. The car shifts fine and runs fine -- however it freaks me out and I let off of the gas. If I take off...
