    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I'm about to purchase the XO 7 inch double din unit for my 06' cts. If anyone has owned this unit give me some feedback. Also does anyone know the door speaker size for the non-bose system. I've been researching for the information but I keep getting different information each time.
  2. Performance chips and intakes for 2010 CTS??

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS Performance Mods
    Just picked up a new 2010 CTS AWD 3.0L. Anyone installed one of the numerous performance chips that are available online and claim big HP and gas milage gains? What about intakes? I see KPE offers one on here. Any feedback is appreciated!
  3. tempermental thermostat

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Thanks in advance for reading this. I bought a 98 Deville 3 months ago w/ 125K miles. The only issue was a leaky radiator which I replaced. The issue now is that most of the time the temp runs 196 - 217, but once in a while it will get up to 240+ before it cools back down. Later I found out the...
  4. New timing chains at 62k, Should I sell??

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    So I figured I would share my crappy week with everyone. My check engine light came on and my mechanic said it was something that had to go to the dealer. I take it there and both timing chains needed to be replaced due to stretching. This requires taking the motor out of the car...Sooo...One...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Back in May my Maggie had a bad bearing at the rear of the jack shaft. I got it fixed by a local shop who put in ceramic bearings. I have put on about 3K Miles since then and the same bearing is bad again. Any ideas on what would be causing this bearing to go? Once i get this one replaced it...

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992

  8. Windshield Wiper Time on after Washer use

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Folks, Got my 2007 V a few months ago and have two minor issues that I have a question on. After I use the windshield squirters the wipers stay on for a real long time (I have checked to make sure the stalk is in the off position). Is there a way to adjust that time? Also, the prior owner...
  9. 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...

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Hey everyone, My parents have a 2003 Seville STS with about 93k miles on it. It had a few issues recently and the dealer recommended new Catalytic convertors and a new EGR Valve. We replaced all those parts as recommended but no one reset any of the codes, so the Service Engine Soon light was...

    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...
  16. High Flo cats. Can they smoke?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Rumor has it that the Hi Flo cats that have low cell counts (200-300) can cause the exhaust to emit smoke when they heat up. I've had a few folks tell me that on track days the see some light colored smoke coming out the back at high rpms. Usually later in the day. We've never been able to...

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I believe this has been brought up before, but I don't remember a sufficient conclusion. I just got another piece of trim, from an '82 Sedan de Ville, which runs the center of the hood. The piece I have on my car (as some of you may remember) is broken in three places. The new piece is pitted...

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    2006 STS w/Nav...........I haven't tried this in a while, but today I was trying to play an MP3 player through the aux inputs in the center console. No go because I don't see the button anymore to select that for an input. I did this a long time ago, but I suspect it was before the firmware...
