  1. Oil recommendations for an aging 1999 STS

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Hello. I have a 1999 STS with 341,000kms (about 213,000 miles) on it. :thumbsup: I was wondering if switching to a higher viscosity oil would be a good idea or not. I've been using 100% synthetic, 10w30 in the summer and 5w30 in the winter since I purchased the car (292,000kms November 2008)...
  2. Oil Pressure Light + Warning

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    So coming to work today I got to sit in lovely traffic for almost an hour. About 20 minutes in I noticed the pressure light start blinking as the car would roll to a stop, stopping making the light stay on. Figured it was the switch because it has happened before and there was nothing to worry...
  3. 2007 V GPS Issues "No DETROIT"

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    All, I searched the forums and found "stuck in Michigan" issues as well as firmware updates mentioned, (that dealers didn't know anything about) and need help. I tried to load an address in Detroit, MI on Saturday, was heading to a wedding downtown and my GPS did not recognize Detroit as a...

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I recently just joined up here; I did a short introduction of myself in the Cadillac Forums Lounge/ Member Information forum. I own a 2000 ETC. What I’m about the post may seem a little odd, but here goes: I've washed the car twice and both times strange things have happened afterwards. The...
  5. How to find a bad lifter?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I just completed a head swap on my LS6. I installed TFS 215s and Morel lifters with link bars. My oil pressure is too low, and but varies. It starts at 10-15 pounds but can reach 50 sporadically. I also have a loud upper engine knock. I have removed the valve covers and rotated the engine and...

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    Hello All, I'm a newbie here. I just recently, (this past April) became the owner of a 2000 Eldorado ETC. The car is a real low miler. I bought it with 57500 kms on it. (36000 miles) It was owned by an older fellow until about Christmas 2008. At that time it only had 26000 kms (16000...
  8. Machined CTS/STS wheels

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I had to deal with some sever tire leaks this winter all coming from corosion and build up around the bead on my stock 17inch wheels. I took all the tires off and cleaned off as much as I could, sanded it down and spray pained the area but noticed that three out of the four wheels were in bad...

    Just thought I would introduce myself. I just became a first time Cadillac owner on Friday, I traded in my 2008 Bullitt Mustang for a black 2008 Cadillac STS. I absolutely love the car so far, such a smooth ride and such a luxurious one at that. Looked around online for Cadillac communities...

  11. Open Apology to Forum and Moderators

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I posted up a thread last night about "playing" in my V with some other cars. It was totally thoughtless on my part and was deleted immediately as it should have been. It seemed harmless at the time, but seeing it deleted, it suddenly dawned on me that it was over the line and against this...
  12. LED 3rd Brake Light

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I've had my 2004 CTS for about 2 months now and I absolutely love it. Recently I discovered that my 3rd brake light (the horizontal one) was out. I found out that my warranty didn't cover it and that you couldn't just replace the bulb, you had to replace the entire part. All of this is fine...
  13. Who has a 3.42 cts/solstice/sts/etc. diff?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I'm really thinking about moving down to a 3.42 rear just because they are easy to find and cheap. My diff whines from 30-50 mph but it doesn't both me too much and I'm not the kind of guy that beats up my car, but I am going to do a round of mods soon (diff/bushing/axles/shifter/mm/tm) and I...
