  1. Correct battery voltage?

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    About a week ago my Eldorado started sounding like it wasn't turning over fast enough when I went to start it. It has always started, but there has been a couple of times where it has turned over really slowly before it fired. I have been watching the voltage display in the DIC pretty closely. I...
  2. Is the 3.6 an interference-type engine?

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I've read several posts in here regarding slipped/stretched/snapped timing chains and can't seem to figure out if the engine is toast if that happens. I always thought these engines were non-interference type, so if the chain did snap the valves wouldn't clash. I have a 2005 with the 3.6 and...
  3. 2010 SRX battery

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    Traded my 97 DeVille for a 2010 SRX. We go to AZ for the winter (5-6) months and I would disconnect both battery cables on the DeVille before leaving and had no problem with startup when returning and reconnecting. The battery on the SRX 3.0 engine looks to be on the drivers side in the engine...
  4. another battery drain

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I have read quite a few battery drain posts, i hope I'm not rehashing the same old questions. 99 STS, i have excellent mechanical skills but poor to average electrical skills. I do all my own work on all my cars (well up to this point). My car has the dreaded slow drain. I pulled up back seat...
  5. Buying 08 SRX V8 AWD Black on Black - any help what to look for?

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    Hi there, my name is Jason and this is my first post. Well the time has come. I am going to be buying my dream SRX in a few weeks. I was almost getting the 07, but I'd rather go with the 08 for heated steering wheel, TPMS, and Auto start. Plus I think the steering wheel looks a lot better in...
  6. Fuel Pump Question

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Just bought a Maggie tonight (thanks Thomas) and I am really wanting to go without the Magnavolt box and/or boost pumps. I would like to install a more robust unit in the tank such as the Walbro 255 unit but cannot find any information if the pump will fit inside the stock tank module. Thomas...
  7. 99 Eldorado, new battery doesn't help

    Electrical Technical Information
    It began when the power started getting erratic. On starting sometimes the engine would turn over slowly, and it would take a while to get it started. Then the clock would reset to 12:00. We finally could not start it at all, so we installed a new battery. However, the problem is still...
  8. What are the world's most patriotic cars?

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    OK, so it's the 4th of July. So what are the most american/patriotic cars out there? Here are what I see as being the four most patriotic types of cars: -Muscle cars. We invented them. Nobody else does them. - Full sized pickup trucks. We invented the segment with the and until recently...
  9. Angel Eye headlights in a 96FWB?

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Is this possible? Or am I just way too high? If so, how could I do itttt!? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380139246764&crlp=1_263602_263622&ff4=263602_263622&viewitem=&guid=dc0f000d11e0a0e20464b424ff090940&rvr_id=&ua=WXF%3F&itemid=380139246764 Check out that...
  10. Oil change has me skeptical

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I changed the oil yesterday in my DI because I hit the 1 year point since my last change. I put about 8-9k miles on it, but the oil life monitor still said 44%. I am all for not changing oil too often and wasting it, but according to my math that means the oil could have gone 13,000 miles...
  11. sluggish autobox

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Well I've had the car (2010 V2) for a week now, and 1st impressions are overall very good. The car is a just a blast to drive... so much so that I can't stop driving it. Now, I am coming from a dodge SRT-4, so big V8s, superchargers, and autoboxes are quite new to me. This car is my 1st ever...
  12. Not Starting!!!

    Cadillac SRX First Generation Forum 2004-2009
    The car won't start, it jumps fine and runs fine the alternator puts out 14volts. The auto parts store said the battery was good, but when i went to disconnect the battery after getting home it was really hot, does anyone know what that means? or what might be causing it to drain? i would...
  13. TSB: Onstar

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    Anyone familiar with this anomoly or TSB as listed in the New York Times: GENERAL MOTORS It’s the automotive equivalent of cellphone pocket dialing: in a wide variety of G.M. models, the OnStar telematics system is activating without any input from the driver, whose clue is an unexpected...
  14. I'm going to track & need weight reduction tips

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    I decided to go to the drag strip this week and wanted to know if there are any weight reduction tips the board could suggest to get this 4600 lb pig (with driver) down to a managable weight. (And don't suggest a diet, you will sound too much like my wife) I have considered the spare tire...
  15. 03' Tranny takes a dump. I learn a few things.

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I did a transmission flush on my 03 with 230,000Kms on it and all was well it helped the performance of the trans a bit. Transmission acted wierd when I bought it at 162,000kms. Wierd = long delay when put in "D" from park,neutral or reverse. Sometimes bumped/jiggled when it shifted into 3rd...

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    By that I mean: 1. Not cute 2. Note polarizing 3. Not brutally ugly 4. Not pretty 5. No heritage or legacy 6. Not fast or too terribly slow 7. Not crude but not extremely refined either 8. Not terribly unreliable, but nothing that would survive a nuclear holocaust either 9. No real cult...

  18. Battery in trunk? why?

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    SO we all know the battery is in the trunk of our cars....does anybody know why? can't be for drag racing......I think they put it in the trunk so incase of a front end collision, the onstar will still work........i wondered about that with our 04 Escalade.....they talk about how onstar can call...
  19. Recent new 2010 owners, what deal did you get?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Just wondering what kind of discounts the dealers are doing right now even with the 0 percent financing deal? I was thinking about getting a used one, but a new one might come out cheaper in some cases.. thanks
