  4. Ultra-View Rattle

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum - 2004 - 2009
    Hey guys- I did a search but came up with nothing relevant. We have an 06 SRX with an Ultra-View. It's really nice, but ours rattles when going down most roads. We took it into the dealer and they said that they lubbed the track and that it should have fixed it. It now rattles more than...
  5. I have a sound that needs identifying too..

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    On ETC, when I floor it from a stop, there is a split second groaning noise that is similar to the sound traction control makes when active, or ABS -- however there is no accompanying shudder. The car shifts fine and runs fine -- however it freaks me out and I let off of the gas. If I take off...
  6. OMG Bose Blows

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    So I took out my turd stock radio so I could splice the aux in into the XM..... I followed the instrustions on the FAQ to the T, even the connector. But holy nasty sounding doodoo. Anything I plug in, my Droid, Ipod touch, my Girl's Iphone....all of it sounds like garbage. The volume is weak...
  7. Clicking from right front wheel area

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I have a noticeable "clicking" sound coming from the LEFT (title is wrong) front wheel area. As soon as I let out the clutch and move I get a click-click sound. It is not the clutch making the noise. I can push the clutch in and out while not moving and it doesn't happen. It also doesn't...
  8. 2010 CTS Lower engine shroud/cover falling off on the freeway

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    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...
  9. New timing chains at 62k, Should I sell??

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    So I figured I would share my crappy week with everyone. My check engine light came on and my mechanic said it was something that had to go to the dealer. I take it there and both timing chains needed to be replaced due to stretching. This requires taking the motor out of the car...Sooo...One...
  10. 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...
  11. Another Bad Maggie Bearing.

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Back in May my Maggie had a bad bearing at the rear of the jack shaft. I got it fixed by a local shop who put in ceramic bearings. I have put on about 3K Miles since then and the same bearing is bad again. Any ideas on what would be causing this bearing to go? Once i get this one replaced it...
  12. Catastrophic maggie failure

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Well, low and behold. A day after I was bragging about how well the car was running... Driving in stop and go traffic, I hear a click then a progressively loud thud thud. So loud I'm thinking to myself it's a loose rod, maybe a lifter went. Manage to get the car home. Oddly the thump/thud is...
  13. WTB Corsa Touring Mufflers

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Sorry, but the classifieds forum in apparently messed up beyond recognition. All the pictures and fonts and unreadable and I can't make heads or tails of it. Is this due to our recent "upgrade" I wonder? Anyway, the title says it all. Thanks, Tony

  16. 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...

    Suspension, Brakes and Tires
    It's an annoying rattle-squeak (I heard a landscape truck with a trailer full of tools go by, and it sounded the same, only louder) that comes from the front end. steering, sway bars and other suspension stuff replaced OR examined and NOTHING found. It's not the hub covers. I assume that the...

    I have this screeching noise occasionally coming from the front brakes when I apply them, I was just wondering what it might be and how I could fix it?
  19. oem or aftermarket hub?

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I went to my cadillac dealer today because my rear wheels were making an annoying noise. There they told me that my left rear wheel hub needed to be replaced..... Then they told me the price...... €640 that's about $850 :mad::mad::mad: that was for a original GM part. Is it necessary to get an...
  20. 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?
