    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    Okay, heres the scoop. I have a 2000 Catera that I love driving. I got it from a local used car dealership. It didn't run when I got it, and quickly found out that the previous owner didn't take care of it at all. Once I got it running, and it warms up, I have a ticking noise. It sounds...

    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    Hi, I'm Robb from the mid-Michigan area and I'm thinking about buying my brothers 99' Catera. It has some issues. The one that annoys me the most is the speedometer is off. The only time it's right is around 55mph. If I want to go 30mph the speedo reads 40mph. When above 55mph the speedo is off...

    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    Hi everyone! My catera only starts in the mornings. If I drive it somewhere I will have to leave it over night because the car will not start. When trying to start the car during the day, it sounds as if there is no gas. It will give a resemblance of a start but it will be futile. The next...

    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    With only 50K miles, the valves are bent. Timing belt broke. So what to do now? Will not spend another dime in this car, after $5500 in 4 years. At 25K miles, the steering gear box was replaced. Except for the engine, everything else about the car is great! Or at list livable. Looks good...

  20. '98 Catera Evap Can Vent Valve Needed

    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    My 98 Catera needs a vent valve (part number 90541907) to pass the emissions test. I have called part stores, dealerships, official GM parts distributors and no one can find one. Is anyone parting out a Catera or know of a salvage yard that would likely have one? I'm open to just about any solution.
