    Recently, I purchased a 2011 Cts Coupe (3.6l rwd). I installed new spark plugs and ignition coils.

  9. FWD DeVille 1985-2005, Fleetwood, and 60 Special
    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...

    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...

    I live in an apartment, far from my family and family house. I do LOVE to spent some quality time with my car and have some small projects and repairs. But the main problem is I don't have a place! Indeed this is a common problem in large cities as far as I know. Street is not a good option at...

    I am doing some research on installing a driver's side power window module. One web site said that it needs to be reflashed/reprogrammed. I called a Cadi dealer in town and they said yes they can do it for $100. I then called my local ASE mechanic who was a Cadi tech for 20 years up to 2008...
