  1. tempermental thermostat

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Thanks in advance for reading this. I bought a 98 Deville 3 months ago w/ 125K miles. The only issue was a leaky radiator which I replaced. The issue now is that most of the time the temp runs 196 - 217, but once in a while it will get up to 240+ before it cools back down. Later I found out the...

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I keep getting great emails from friends on this forum who are increasing their RWHP to 600+. I want to say "Congrats and aint it grand!" There is the elite gold caliper club. I was wondering who is in the 600+ rwhp club. Please post up
  3. Mileage too LOW ??

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Looking at 1998 Deville with only 20,000 miles! Any ideas as to what to look for? Looks like tires have been replaced, but no other work is obvious. 12 year old car, 20,000 miles = 140 miles/month, if it didn't sit for 11 years. Let me know what you think.
  4. Rear brake smoking after pad change

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    So my rear brakes were shot so I replaced the pads and ended up having to replace both rotors. I also bled the entire system. Now the passenger side rear pad is hanging up and burning away my new pads. Am I looking at having to replace the caliper or could it be something else? Also how hard...

Currently in a C6Z06 and have a company vehicle, when my company lease is up 8/31 I can take an '11 Avalon or $1,000 mo allowance so I'm going to sell the Z (have a deposit), take the allowance and drive...

  8. 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...

  10. Those of you with kpe/airaid intakes

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I know there was a previous post regarding the maf sensor screws backing out and several reports of people using loctite etc. The reason for the screws to loosen is there is nothing for the screw to bottom out on, the only thing thats happening when you tighten it down is flexing the plastic on...
  11. Transmission Fluid Top Ups -- a recap pls?

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Hello all... figured that until I can get the 01 DTS into the shop, I'd at least try to fill up or add trans fluid to try to decrease the symptoms I've been having... symptoms: a noticeable 'clunk' when coming up to red light at the point where the car stops; a lack once and awhile when...
  12. Composite vs. Sealed beam front end poll

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    There's always comments on what is the more popular front end of our beloved '80's and early '90's Broughams/Devilles. Just for fun I'd like to see which is the most liked here on the forum.

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I see a couple of you have them. A guy that manages the UHaul store here in Laurel has them as well so i decided to go for them (kelley muffler did his for 525). I got quoted at kelleys at 250 bucks a piece..non-stainless steel. Does that seem right? I saw them on Ebay for 79bucks a...

  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...

  18. 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?

  20. 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...
