    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum (2010-2016)
    When purchasing my SRX last month I was quite surprised that it was not equipped with a remote starter. Disappointed, but the dealership referred me to their "preferred" vendor to have the starter installed. I made the appointment, dropped the car off, went back to pick it up to be told that...

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    I did an install over the weekend to a 2008 Escalade. I thought I would play around and customize the Maggie and make it more efficient in cooling. As you can see in the photos below, I fabricated a much larger HEX in place of the factory one. I also installed a 20gpm pump right next to it on...

    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...

    Might be a stupid question, but how do I reset the Fuel Economy screen? I've been watching the way I drive and can make it move higher (good thing) by adjusting my "lead" foot. What I can't figure out is how to reset it, for example when I fill up the tank again? Thanks for the advice...
  16. '97 etc flooded after hot soak

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    Lately, if/when I try to start my car after it's been running for awhile, but before it has had a chance to cool down completely, it will act like it's flooded - hard to start, backfires sometimes. If I open the throttle a little, that seems to help. I think one or more of the injectors must...
