  1. 91 SDV Hood Release Latch Stuck

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    The hood release latch mechanism appears to be stuck on my 1991 Sedan Deville. The cable does not seem to be broken anywhere. I was able to see the cable from underneath the front end of the car, so I was able to verify it's not broken all the way to the point where it meets the latch mechanism...
  2. Texas is awesome.

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    Its like there's unlimited space here. Everything is big, cheap, and people are friendly. Its hot but not swampy. Everything feels new, clean, and uncongested. The roads have lots of space, property has lots of land, and there aren't as many annoying mosquitoes here as there are back home in...
  3. What do think of this driveshaft option?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    It looks like I'm in the market for a new drive shaft and I know we don't have many alternatives at the moment.

    At what level is yours when cold and when hot?
  5. Diff whine? Driveshaft center bearing? CV joint gone bad???? Please Help!

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Frickin A. I just spent the last couple days putting a new differential in my '04 only to discover that the exact same whine/hum is still there. The diff is brand spankin' new. My car developed an odd whine/hum somewhere along a 200mi drive. The noise wasn't there when I left my house, but as I...
  6. Installed a Magnacharger supercharger, custom reservoir, HEX and pump last weekend

    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...
  7. '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...
  8. What is this part? picture included!

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    So i discovered where I was leaking coolant, it was from the part pictured below. It would leak onto a hot metal pipe below and evaporate before it could hit the ground( which explains why i didnt have a puddle of coolant under my car). I want to replace this part but i dont know what the name...
  9. Dealer trans. power flush procedure ?

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    Hello, Do they connect to the trans. cooler lines or are there service ports in the side of the case other than the fill and drain plugs ? If the fill and drain plugs are used how does fluid get circulated through trans and not just the oan ? Thanks
  10. Cadillac 425 Performance Question

    500, 472, 425, 368
    Hi all, So I acquired a 9k original mile 1978 Eldo Biarritz Custom Classic last year and finally got around to tinkering with it. When I bought the car it was a complete dog. If I floored it, I couldn't feel any difference at all. This was even after I changed the plugs/wires/dist cap/rotor...

    Hello all, im new to this forum, and i love my Cadillac! long story short, this car quit running in spring of 2004. i got a call to haul this 91 Deville to the bailer back in 07 as the owner could not find someone to fix it, i ended up buying this MINT, CLEAN, NO RUST, GARAGE KEPT Deville for...
  12. 96 Deville - leaking fuel line - replacement not available

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    The nylon fuel line on my 96 Deville is spraying fuel from a leak just forward of the fuel filter after it makes a dog-leg turn under the driver's seat. I called the dealers in my area (around Washington, DC) and got the same story. It's no longer available, and they don't have any on the...
  13. Pics of coolant test of exhaust gas/head gasket leaking?

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    I rented a kit to test for exhaust gas in the coolant from Autozone. The kit came with a tube that is inserted in the coolant overflow, and blue liquid that is supposed to turn yellow within 2 minutes - if there are exhaust gasses present in the overflow tank - from a blown head gasket. In my...
  14. radiator water leaking - just had distilled water

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Seville SLS 96 got a heater hose leaking. So I changed it but put only distilled water (not the usual Dexcool). The radiator has almost pure distilled water. I thought I will change it to ususal 50/50 Dexcool before winter starts. I am losing radiator water like half a gallon in 2 or 3 days. I...
  15. Leaking reservoir.

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I had to have my battery tested earlier, it's weak of course, and I see that my reservoir is leaking on the top from where the hose connects. Is there a way to repair it or is it going to have to be replaced?
  16. Deville 97, is it water pump leaking?

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    The coolant leaked from the recovery tank, upper and lower plastic pipes that are connected to hoses, they kind of gave a crack and I was loosing coolant. Changed the recovery tank in a few days while trustfully adding coolant, no hard driving, thought it was over, no more leaks there. Next day...
  17. Leaking heater core?

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    In searching previous threads, it seems as if I have a leaking heater core or the hoses to the core are leaking. Symptoms were needing to top off coolant, smell the coolant in the cabin, wet passenger floor mat, passenger-side windshield fogging up. I noticed no low coolant message, no coolant...
  18. leaking

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    It seems that the CTS has some continuous issues with leaking. From what Ive read, it is generally due to the drains being clogged. So Im thinking it would be a good idea to add 'drain checking' to the list of maintenance items, like checking oil and brakes. So, where does water drain out...
  19. Damm leaking half seal, what about lucas?

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    Juts had the racing caddy looked at by a mechanic. It turns out that the oil leak was not the rear main seal, but the half seal. I mean it is constant leak at operating temp. I dont have the time to do another tear down to replace the half seal. Can I use Lucas to seal it up enough?
