    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    Hello, I am having trouble finding out why my 98 Catera is dripping motor oil (with a little bit of water mixed) As well as A LOT of white smoke coming from behind the lower section of the engine when idle after 3 min, running/at stops, after being run when i pop open the hood as well.:confused...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...

    500, 472, 425, 368
    I just found this forum about a week ago and have been reading everything I can about the Cadillac 472/500 engine. I know Chevys and Fords but the last Cad engine I worked on was my Dad's '47 flathead.....A LONG time ago. I was searching for quite a while for a Buick 401/425 Nailhead for a...

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I have a 92 STS with the 4.9 V8, and when I'm idleing at a stop light or drive thru it starts over heating. as long as I'm moving it's fine. Temp got up to 190 degrees and I started seeing steam appear around the hood. I pulled over and opened the hood and that plastic antifreeze overflow tank...
  6. 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...

  8. Deville Concours ---> DTS......Differences?

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    What are the major differences between the 1997-99 DeVille Concours and 00-05 Deville DTS? I know it's a whole new body and platform, but it's the same underlying principle below....the full size DeVille with all the sporty accoutrements. Does the DTS drive a lot tighter than the Concours? Does...
  9. Burned Out on Exhaust Research

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I really need an exhaust upgrade and I've spent weeks watching every video on youtube, myspace, facebook, and streetfire at least a dozen times. I've changed my mind between stainless works, magnaflow, b&b, and corsa at least a dozen times also. I think I narrowed it down to the B&B. I need...

  14. 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...
