  1. Windshield Wiper Time on after Washer use

    2004-2007 Cadillac 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...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    The car is a 2007 w/ about 80k on it. It has failed (then passed) emissions twice in the last year of it changing hands (one dealer to another. car is 1-owner). Heard and ignored parade clunk (thanks iphone and cadillac forums on the fly!). I imagine its a result of the monster under the...

    Anybody have a good recommendation for a local clear bra installer; say near Downey or Cerritos, etc.? Also, just starting to look into this (wife said she'll buy for birthday coming up :) ), but would imagine they prep the areas real well, including headlights and such?

    Hi, can someone run me a VIS report for the VIN (last 8) 80109297? Dealer gave me a history report but no one there knew how to do VIS, so all I really want is the original build information (features, date, etc). Please PM me with response. Thanks!
  8. 1991 Deville backfires through intake and blows muffler off

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    My Deville died at Pep Boys at night and I got it towed home. I determined the ignition module was bad and it started right up. I drove it around the block and I heard a loud flap sound like a vacuum valve shutting a vent door and then it started to hesitate. That is the beginning of the end...

  12. Ethanol

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Maybe some of you guru's can answer this, a service station near my house sells what is referred to as marine gas, (89 octane with zero ethenol). The price is the same as 103 octane with 10% ethenol, which in the long run might be better? Made a huge difference in performance on my Mercury 250...
