  1. Ticking coming from my 2009 EXT

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    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...
  2. Shaved ice stand. Good idea?

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    I bought a snow cone today which got me thinking. As temps outside crept toward 100F, I happily paid $3.75 for a cup of ice and sugar that cost only 15-30 cents to produce. The fully enclosed mobile stand was air conditioned inside and located next to a Texas vehicle inspection station, so...
  3. Texas is awesome.

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    Its like there's unlimited space here. Everything is big, cheap, and people are friendly. Its hot but not swampy. Everything feels new, clean, and uncongested. The roads have lots of space, property has lots of land, and there aren't as many annoying mosquitoes here as there are back home in...
  4. Crank shaft position sensor

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Just trying to pin point the problem, 2003 3.2L doesnt start at times, battely ok, turn the key car starts cranking but thats about it. Doesnt throw any codes either, is this a CSP issue.
  5. Anyone here rent timing kits?

    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    Since my Cat is about halfway back together, next thing to do is the timing belt. Unfortunately, no one around here rents the kit I need, and buying one is out of the question. So, is there anyone on here that rents them for just the cost of a refundable deposit? There is a guy in the UK that...

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    hey all... just picked up my 2010 escalade last night after trading in my 2007 EXT. the usb iPod interface usually works great but i'm noticing now that sometimes, the scroll on the side of the music list is "greyed out" and the screen wont let me scroll through the music. I can only see the...

  8. Startup HIGH revs....huh?

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992

But twice in the past few days, at start from cold...ie car hasn't run in hours, the revs SOAR to like 3,000 rpm.....and hold and hold...and then after like 15 secs, slowly fall back...
  9. Why does Cadillac hate V8 engines?

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    The CTS, especially the new coupe, is a knockout and if it had the LS3 or L99 V8 available, it would dominate the 6-cylinder competition (335, G37, Lexus etc). But for some reason Cadillac refuses to give us the V8 except for souped-up versions in the very costly V-series. It doesn't make any...

  12. Someone keyed the car I'm trading in towards my 2011 V... need input

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Just wanted to vent, and also get some input from folks on the board... I bought a 2011 V Sedan June 30th. It's expected to arrive in ~2 weeks from now (production was scheduled last week, but no updates on the dealers system yet) I have a 2004 Nissan Xterra that I'm trading - they guaranteed...

  14. An old dog found his way home.

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I bought back the first car I was handed down, when I turned 16. My dad bought the car around 1997, when a local gas station that sold cars, was selling the land. They auctioned off all of the cars, and my dad was the only one to bid on this 1983 DeVille. He just bid on it for fun, and...
  15. 2007 CTS-V Raven - negotiating to buy in the morning - help?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    The car is a 2007 w/ about 80k on it. It has failed (then passed) emissions twice in the last year of it changing hands (one dealer to another. car is 1-owner). Heard and ignored parade clunk (thanks iphone and cadillac forums on the fly!). I imagine its a result of the monster under the...
  16. 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...

  18. 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...
  19. WTB Corsa Touring Mufflers

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Sorry, but the classifieds forum in apparently messed up beyond recognition. All the pictures and fonts and unreadable and I can't make heads or tails of it. Is this due to our recent "upgrade" I wonder? Anyway, the title says it all. Thanks, Tony
