    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012

    I've got a AWD '08 SRXand I'm stymied on this one and would appreciate advice. My driver seats controls do not work. Neither do the seat/exit memory buttons on the door. I strongly suspect a fuse or circuit....but cannot find the fuse block. According to the manual the fuse blocks should be...
  5. Is it me, or are alot of N*s having cracked blocks

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    I dont have one, but i realize that its becoming a issue now. What are the chances of GM having a weak batch of blocks from there supplier, or is it just user stupidity? To be honest, the northstar only has a few things going for it, and thats the power, torque, sound, and block durability...

  7. Blocks cracking on final head torque?

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    Talked to the foreman at the machine shop today about his experience rebuilding Northstars. Says he has had blocks crack in the "lifter valley" when doing the last pass on the head bolt torque. This is on blocks that have been freshly timeserted. Now his solution is to only go 45 degrees on the...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    the same? I need to get a new underhood fuse block for my car. if they are the same it would be great. I am assuming they are since in the owners manual it doesnt specify different for cts-v. just different fuses used in some location from what i can tell. thanks

  12. Bedding the Performance Friction Pads - - - Letting the smoke out!

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Most people after a great brake job using only the best parts do not finish the job off properly. They think they are through after torquring the last bolt down and kicking the wheel blocks out. NOPE! lots to do yet Last Sundy I installed the Performance Friction pads on all corners. After...

  16. Northstar for marine use?

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    What does the group think about the using a northstar in a boat? Of course the engine would have to marinized for safety. Not to mention the cooling and the computer changes( or lack of computer). Given that all this could be done well, I was wondering if the northstar is a good match...

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I had a dream that someone had stolen my new Chrome rims I got a month ago for my SLS. Someone had taken them in the night and left my car with crappy plastic rims (no idea how that would have held up in real life anyway) I would have rather them left it on blocks. at least I had the old alloy...
