  5. Manual Transmission Fluid Leak?

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I have a 2007 2.8L 6spd. I was changing my oil and checking all of my fluids and everything looked good, except for the tiny manual transmission fluid resevoir (just in front of the coolant tank on the driver side). It is empty, but I can't tell how long it has been like that. Also my car has...
  6. Time to upgrade

    Cadillac Audio, Video and Security Systems
    I've always wanted more bass in my Cadi and now that both the front door speakers are partially blown its time. I'm thinkin new speakers all around, amp, and sub(s). I am fine with the stock head unit to keep the process a little simpler and cheaper. I have a '00 Seville STS with bose(CD...

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Hello, I have a 1999 STS and have been having problems with either the ignition key or some other problem I have not been able to figure out.

  9. Coil Replacement Options

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I have a 2005 with the 3.6 and around 70K. Still has the factory plugs... I had a cylinder 5 misfire code pop up and it started a (more than normal) rough idle and horrible acceleration with the A/C on. Luckily, cylinder 5 was easy to get to so I replaced the plug and thought that the problem...

  13. Biased impressions of the V coupe

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I sat in (but did not drive) a V coupe today while my 2010 V sedan got some minor service at the dealer. I previously owned a 2005 Z-51 Corvette, traded it for a 2008 Z-51 Corvette, and finally traded the 2008 vette for a 2010 V. All with manual transmissions. I liked the 2005 vette but it had...

  15. FINALLY Lowered, but got questions...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I finally lowered her with h&r, and I think with the spacer mod she looks damn good! I like the slightly raked look... I have let it sit a couple days then drove it around, it pumps up but not bad at all, it then settles back down to almost level when left a few days. As far as ride goes I love...
  16. bolt pattern differences between L37 and LD8?

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    I have been looking for parts for my l37 and have noticed at engines found at junk yards that vehicle has VIN Y but bolts look like VIN 9. Did they change bolt pattern/number of bolts or does that not make a difference? Even after finding the vin derivative, is there any way to prove it belongs...
  17. Better Mileage out of LD8 Northstar

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    Not too long ago I bought a 97 SLS off of my uncle after my previous car (99 Intrepid) died. That being said I went from a car that gets 26mpg/highway & 22 or 23 mpg/city to my large barge (which I love) that gets 23mpg/highway & 18mpg/city:thepan:. So what I'm wanting to know is any useful...
  18. 2000+ LD8 vs L37 - What's the diff?

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    Just trying to sort out exactly what the difference is between the two on the newer N*'s. I've read around here that there were some larger difference in 90's vintage N*'s, but haven't found a good listing of differences between the newer ones. I have heard that there is a different part number...
  19. Swap LD8 in for a L37

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    I just bought a 2001 LD8 with the heads off. I installed time serts and reassembled the motor and it's ready to plop into the next car I buy. My question is, am I limited to put this engine only in a car that originally had a LD8. Has anyone here put an LD8 in a car that had an L37 ? I know the...
