    Cadillac BLS Forum (Europe/South Africa) 2006-2010
    :ill:Anyone else experienced misfiring/no revs/starting then cutting out? My 06 BLS 1.9D has started to act up every once in a while and I can't find anyone prepared to look at it.

  3. 03 Seville STS, multiple codes...

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Hey everyone, My parents have a 2003 Seville STS with about 93k miles on it. It had a few issues recently and the dealer recommended new Catalytic convertors and a new EGR Valve. We replaced all those parts as recommended but no one reset any of the codes, so the Service Engine Soon light was...
  4. Dealership is less than helpful

    2004-2007 Cadillac 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...

    8 months I've been trying to get the vibration to go away on my car....I either get told it's in my head or that its the road I'm feeling and they can't fix that. If its the "road" then my cadillac drives worse then my wifes Kia cause her car is comfortable/smooth on the highway and mine feels...
  12. Help with 98 SLS. Tach died and car started to run bad...

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Was driving down the road at about 70 today when the tachometer died and the service engine light came on. At the same time the car began to run very rough. At idle it skips but not at a regular interval and anything more than the slightest throttle and the car hesitates very bad.
  13. Car accelerates when first started??

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Has anyone had the car surge after a cold start. I put my seat belt on, start the car, hit the seat button, shift to D and then the car surges up to about 1400 RPM's. I really have to keep the brakes pressed hard or it will launch quite well out of the garage. It was doing this before and...
  14. I took a weekend trip, my cruise control started acting up

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Is there a separate cruise control module or is this integrated into the computer? What was happening is that I would push the button to set the speed and nothing would happen. I've noticed a few times in the past I would have to push the button twice before it would set, today is the first...

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Hi guys, It is about 3 weeks that car started to shake a bit, specially when it is in Park, and also I feel that engine noise is louder than before. I had an overheating, about one month ago, caused by worn water pump belt, after replacing it overheating is gone. The maximum distance that I...

  20. High pitch whistle when started cold

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    2003 DTS. I hear a high pitch whistle noise when I first star my car. It only lasts 5 to 10 seconds. I searched here, but only came up with loose belt noise. It is not that. This is a whistle noise. One morning I will need to open the hood before I start the car and get out quick to listen.
