  1. FWD DeVille 1985-2005, Fleetwood, and 60 Special
    The car had been running like a top, then developed this engine knock. I read the codes: random cylinder misfire. Parked it until I could find help, found metal shavings in the oil. I can't find anyone who can tell me what's going on or what needs to happen. Help.

    Just wanted to vent, and also get some input from folks on the board... I bought a 2011 V Sedan June 30th. It's expected to arrive in ~2 weeks from now (production was scheduled last week, but no updates on the dealers system yet) I have a 2004 Nissan Xterra that I'm trading - they guaranteed...
  3. 2008-2013 CTS General Discussion
    While driving on the freeway about 70mph, the lower engine shroud on my CTS came unbolted and the airflow pushed it down into the pavement and got half ground to pieces. Being away on vacation, we had to drive up onto a curb to get under the car and take off the last 3 bolts that were still...
  4. 2004-2007 CTS-V General Discussion
    Well, low and behold. A day after I was bragging about how well the car was running... Driving in stop and go traffic, I hear a click then a progressively loud thud thud. So loud I'm thinking to myself it's a loose rod, maybe a lifter went. Manage to get the car home. Oddly the thump/thud is...
  5. 2004-2007 CTS-V General Discussion
    Folks, Got my 2007 V a few months ago and have two minor issues that I have a question on. After I use the windshield squirters the wipers stay on for a real long time (I have checked to make sure the stalk is in the off position). Is there a way to adjust that time? Also, the prior owner...

    MORE LIKE 'POOR'SCHE Seriously though, I'm thinking about it. I've looked at all the warnings, all the quirks, all the hazardously expensive repairs. It seems like most of what goes wrong happens during the warranty period, so by now (8-12 years, 60-100k) all of it has been ironed out or...
  7. 2004-2007 CTS-V General Discussion
    I have an 06 V with a few mods, cat backs, ported input manifold and throttle body, and a Lingenfelter cold air intake. Had a performance tune a couple of years ago and everything worked great for a couple of years until I cleaned and reoiled the air filter. I started getting the dreaded...

    Ok, So here goes. My wife drives our '06 CTS 3.6l, we bought it new in Aug '06. The car has 68k miles on it and I maintain it meticulously, i.e. new oil every 6k(of course Mobil 1), air filters, etc. In June of this year she was driving to work, highway, and she feels the car buck and the...

    hi, i just bought a cadillac seville and i love it so far, but there are minor *hopefully* things that are annoying me. 1stly when i start it up and i sit there with it, it makes an odd "pump" sound everyonce in awhile... i think its because i have like so little gas in it :P but i was just...

    Start the car up and it feels like my '02 Z28. You can barely feel or hear it but I take notice of these things. These things idle like sewing machines so hence my concern. I think there is a drop in midrange performance. Gas mileage is slightly suffering. Was going to check the plugs till...
  11. 2004-2007 CTS-V General Discussion
    I have an "05" and when i get into the garage i can smell coolant. I have checked that motor over and can't find any signs of a leek. I have only had the car for a few months so i dont know if this is normal for the LS6 or if I'm just lucky. Has anyone else had this problem?
  12. CTS First Generation Forum - 2003-2007
    Started hearing a wierd noise from the back took it to the service they told me it was the wheel bearings. They said one is really bad where the noise was coming from the other one was getting there. They wanted 920 dollors to change it. To much for me i found a guy that will install them for...

    All 3 of these came on during dry weather yesterday and won't go out. I noticed last year during wet winter driving they would come on occasionally and reset when the car was shut off and not show up for a long time. I just came back from a wheel alignment and they said there is a little play...

    Recently ive been noticing that my car is hesitating and i thought it was a transmission problem. then i went to get it smogged, and they couldnt even finish the test because they told me it was misfiring too bad. ever since then, it misfires pretty bad when it goes into second gear and at...
  15. FWD DeVille 1985-2005, Fleetwood, and 60 Special
    I have a 96 Deville. The check engine light came on. OBD codes are P0325 and P0717. PMC knock sensor and Input speed sensor circuit low input. The battery has been losing a charge before this came up. Could these cause a drain on the battery, or would the weak battery cause these codes to come...

    Recently, I've been listening to a lot of NWA (straight outta compton) and really like it. I've got some other classic rap in my iPod, but would like to get some more of the good stuff. So what kinda stuff is good from this era (late '80s-mid '90s is what I was thinking)
  17. 2009-2015 CTS-V Performance Mods
    I had the Kooks headers installed today at Behe Performance. I went back to the stock mufflers because I was afraid they would be too loud. To be honest...I am kind of disappointed in the sound compared to my 3" custom cat-back. The only good thing is that there isn't any drone in the car. But...
  18. FWD DeVille 1985-2005, Fleetwood, and 60 Special
    Owned this car less than a week, and from what I gather the previous (second) owner did very little maintenance. Owner says water pump is original as far as he knows. Some times I see coolant temps peak at 227 with A/C at 60, sitting in a traffic jam on the highway when it was 98 outside. In the...
  19. CTS First Generation Forum - 2003-2007
    Nothing but problems, with my 04, injector codes erg codes, gas cap codes, yes I bought a caddie gas cap. air bag light. Rusted through muffler on a texas car. I'm done with them. My Avalanche rides better and has more room. In the CTS I sat behind the B Pillar and was a bitch to get in and...
  20. FWD DeVille 1985-2005, Fleetwood, and 60 Special
    A month ago I got a 1995 Cadillac DeVille. I traded my Suburban straight across. No cash. I was looking for a more fuel efficient vehicle that was comfortable and smaller than the 'Burb. So I have this real clean caddy with 148,000 miles and a clean leather interior. However it needs somethings...
