  1. 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...
  2. How much engine vibration is too much?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Just bought the V about 5 days ago. I am curious if anyone can quantify how much vibration is too much. At a stoplight, I can feel the lope of the engine idling. Not sure if this is just natural, or an indication of worn motor mounts/tranny mounts. The car is a 2004 with ~29.7k miles. I have...

  4. Auxilliary Blower Motor Resistor Location

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Re: Blower Motor Resistor Location :banghead: New thread? Can't find where I'm supposed to enter a new thread? I have a Cadillac Deville 2003 and the front blowers start when they feel like it so no air or A/C. I have been told by ' O' Reilly's ' auto spares that the blower motor resistor...
  5. clunking when accelerating from stop

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    95 Deville 4.9. So I'm getting this clunk when I take off from a stop. Kinda feels like when a CV joint is bad. But when I sit with the brake on and go between drive and reverse, it doesn't make that klunk. Any ideas what might be the cause?
  6. Fix for repeated heater relay failure 77 Deville

    500, 472, 425, 368
    Just thought I would pass on a possible fix for repeated blower relay failure on late 70's Devilles. After looking through the posts on here I see that others are having this problem. The only fix I have seen so far is to replace the blower motor and/or carry spare relays which I have tried. My...
  7. Oh hell, I think my motor mount is gone

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Just out running errands in the STS today, noticed a clunk and a little rise in the front end when I put it in drive. There's a little clunk when I let out of the throttle too. I've been reading around in Ranger's motor mount thread, sounds like it's time for one of Jake's mounts. No more WOT...
  8. Now, on the other hand, some of my friends have a GREAT taste in cars.

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    My buddy Ryan has a 1996 Fleetwood Brougham that he keeps in very good condition. It's triple black, and it's got a low 97k miles on it. He only drives it once a month or so, and only on weekends, when it's not being driven, it's parked in a storage garage under a cover. He had a '96 Town Car as...

  11. Trace Engine Serial to a VIN?

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Hi everyone, I am a newbie, I am sorry if this question has already been asked. I was wondering if there is a way to trace an engine/motor serial back to the original VIN# it came from. I purchased a '05 CTS a little over 10 months ago and I have been having problems since day 1 (electrical and...
  12. Adding insult to injury: Motor Trend picks M3 & RS5 over V Coupe

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I'm sure this was mentioned in the other thread, I thought I'd mention it for those not keeping up with that thread. I don't see the article on line yet, but just got the hard copy in the mail. Main knock on the V is the crappy auto trans. V out accelerates and brakes the others. But, came in...
  13. Ease of install and mileage from motor mounts???

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I had CS gray motor mount installed and lasted 2-3 months. I drive my V about 600 miles a month. CS sent me black mm's free of charge this time which was really nice of them. The UUC's seem to be an easier install with locating pins and 2003Rc51 mm's seem even I right? I'm wondering...

  15. Heavier throttle spring need for ISC motor to function properly?

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Here's a strange one: On my '88 Eldorado I figured out that the ISC motor will not move in and out properly unless there is pressure on it from the throttle lever and therefore a heavier throttle spring is needed. If I do the input test for the ISC motor, the plunger should go out, out, out...

  18. 4.9 stumbling right off idle

    HT4100 4.1, 4.5, 4.9
    Hey, guys, just signed up on the forum. I have a '92 Eldorado with the 4.9, which has a slight problem. When I slightly depress the accelerator while in gear, the engine starts stumbling. Not to the point it'll stall, just runs real rough. At idle and under moderate to heavy acceleration, all...

    27 July 10. My 88 Fleetwood has strange blower problem. I hope someone can help me with. After arriving home from work today the blower motor would not shut off with the engine off. I pulled all the fuses and the blower continued to run. I opened the hood and and disconnected the 3 relays...
