  4. High Flo cats. Can they smoke?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Rumor has it that the Hi Flo cats that have low cell counts (200-300) can cause the exhaust to emit smoke when they heat up. I've had a few folks tell me that on track days the see some light colored smoke coming out the back at high rpms. Usually later in the day. We've never been able to...
  5. Oh hell, I think my motor mount is gone

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Just out running errands in the STS today, noticed a clunk and a little rise in the front end when I put it in drive. There's a little clunk when I let out of the throttle too. I've been reading around in Ranger's motor mount thread, sounds like it's time for one of Jake's mounts. No more WOT...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    My tire pressure monitor in the car says "----" on the front driver's side tire. Before I've attempted to take off the wheel and check for a flat, I used a manual guage on the tire and it reads fine. Any help guys? It's 2006 with runflats still on.

    On a 1985 Deville, is there a schrader valve built into the fitting on the accumulator where the low pressure switch is threaded onto? Thus, I can remove the switch without having to discharge the system?

  15. Low Oil Pressure Warning

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    I had my oil changed at Wal-mart over the weekend (Mobile 1 synthetic w/ Fram oil filter). After driving the vehicle for about 30 minutes, I got a "Low Oil Pressure - Turn off engine" warning with the non-stop chimes. When I drive the vehicle, the warning goes away, but once at a stop or idle...
  16. Whats Tire pressure did you use at the drag strip for best traction?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Was wondering what tire pressure worked best you people to get traction with stock PS2 tires. I ran a 1.73 on 32psi in 78 degree weather. Im hoping others have experimented with this and can shed some helpeful hints so that the next time I hit the track I can do better.
  17. 98 Catera, oil pressure issue.

    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    Hi, I'm having a new issue with my catera. The oil pressure shows about 60PSI in the morning (cold engine), then when it gets hot the pressure drops to about half way or less while driving. When I come to a stop or traffic light it drops down right to the first white line (I think it is 10PSI)...

    2005 CTSV starting alarming overthe weekend "No Oil Pressure". Powered down. Oil volume and appearance looked normal. No bad engine sounds. I had her towed to a seasoned mechanic. After sitting 2 days, he took it for a ride and oil pressure began reading 37-41 on the guage after a mile. Said...
  20. Low pressure port for A/C?

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Anyone have an idea where this is located? The one on the line I think is the high pressure port, as my pressure gauge doesn't fit on it. I think the low pressure port is actually located on the accumulator(?) itself, but want to be sure before I add freon. My A/C crapped out, and I think it's...
