    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    I'm thinking about buying one of these for the wife. We went to the dealership and test drove it. Fully loaded with all the bells and whistles in comes out at $23,900. Not very fast but great mpg and great handling. I like the styling too. What do we think of it?

  4. What will the 150k tuneup cost?

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    I'm approaching my 150k mileage, and wanted to know (i'm trying to stay AWAY from my dealer on this) what needs to be "done" at that tuneup, and what such a tuneup might cost.... My '01 has never had a tuneup and runs -- well -- still pretty good....all things considered....the "only" glitch I...

  6. Let's talk about the the CTS and in cars

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    This thing has the potential to be a ridiculous display in your vehicle. Grant it would take a lot of fabrication to get it to sit flush, but man this thing is sick. Shit you wouldn't even have to mount it, as it could be your mini carputer in your dash with one ipod charger. I am really...
  7. Tune-up made my 03 more sluggish??

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    Just purchased a new/used 2003 Escalade for the wife. Here is something that has me beat, it has 135,000KM on it so I thought I should give it a tune-up, as there is a bit of a vibration at idle. Put all new plugs (AC Delco part# 41-110 left factory gap), new NGK spark plug wires, new fuel...
  8. Hand Held Scanner Question

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    Anyone know of a scanner that works for our cars that pulls more than just a CEL code? Im hoping to buy one which will read ABS codes as well at least. Obviously a Tech 2 will but Id rather not spend 5k on a scanner haha. Thanks guys!

    She's pretty dirty. I haven't washed her in a week. Yours truly. Crossing into Wisconsin. Surprisingly enough, I-94 does have some fun areas in Wisconsin. The GS got great gas mileage! All this economy and 240 purebred ponies under the can you go wrong? It was surprisingly...

  11. 100,000 Mile Tune-Up

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Well after some research and not really finding much about a 100,000 mile tune up. I figured I might as well ask since its going to be me and my friend doing it ourselves. Were going to change out the spark plugs, air filter, cabin air filter, brake pads, flush radiator, change transmission...
  12. 2002 Deville Transaxle noise

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Each time I begin to move after a stop I hear a slight grinding noise for less than one second. It sounds similar to spark detonation but I can put the tranny in drive, hold the brakes then press the accelerator and no engine noise and I hear the grinding noise once and only once. If I drive a...

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    I think I will continue to keep my '95 Seville STS in tip top shape, and consider it an investment in my own aesthetic pleasure! Not one car feature in the video raised my temperature, at least not in a positive "car buying" way. If Cadillac is serius about making the XTS its' replacement for...

  18. Seville 03 shaking problems after tune-up.

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    Hey, I just changed the spark plugs on a Cadillac Seville SLS 03. As soon as I changed the spark plugs the car started to shake at idle (Did not do it before). I plugged the computer to check for codes and there are no codes. The spark plugs I used are Champion platinum and I gapped them...
  19. Looking for a cheap code scanner ...

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    Hi does anyone know which is a cheap / reasonable code scanner for checking all types of DTCs on my 02 Escalade? Do all of them check for bad sensors (ie. stability system sensors etc?) I was considering one of those USB ebay ones that plug into your laptop - would that work out? Dealer wants...
  20. tune-up

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Works starting to slow down, so i'm putting money aside to do a tune-up. I plan on replacing the plugs, wires, and belts. I also have to replace the coolant. Should I replace the transmision fluid and filter? Is there anything else I should replace?
