  1. 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...
  2. An old dog found his way home.

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I bought back the first car I was handed down, when I turned 16. My dad bought the car around 1997, when a local gas station that sold cars, was selling the land. They auctioned off all of the cars, and my dad was the only one to bid on this 1983 DeVille. He just bid on it for fun, and...

  6. '97 etc flooded after hot soak

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    Lately, if/when I try to start my car after it's been running for awhile, but before it has had a chance to cool down completely, it will act like it's flooded - hard to start, backfires sometimes. If I open the throttle a little, that seems to help. I think one or more of the injectors must...
  7. Factory CD changer connect

    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    How does the Factory CD changer connect to the Factory radio? I have the Bose stereo but when i got the car someone had moved and changed the CD changer from that little nook in the trunk to right next to the rear right shock and replaced it with a 10-disc. On the interior there was a manual CD...

    Ok so My 92 Deville is running very smooth,,,,,and there is a slight hestation when I press on the gas pedal from a stop, then it smoothens out.

  12. Daytime running lamp is frying

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    I recently purchased a 2004 Escalade, the DRL was burned out. Not a big deal I thought. When I replaced the bulb the female end of the plug was melted. After a trip to my local auto parts store I replaced the female portion of the plug. A few days later the DRL was out and the plug was...

  14. Running tad bit cool - thermostat or ect sensor?

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    Yeah - that's a switch, eh? A Northstar running cool! My '97 ETC coolant temp has always been really steady at 196 or 197 degrees when cruising, on the highway, once warmed up. Winter - Summer, no matter - always 196 or 197. Lately, it's been lower - 188 or 190 when cruising. Temp gauge...

    now that the 4.9L is running well again, I'd like to now look into the A/C system. it's not blowing cool air. I hooked a gauge on the low pressure side because I wanted to see if it needed R134 and it looks okay. Any pointers where I can look next? thanks D

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    and I couldn't figure out where to go through the fire wall at. I was wondering what other people have done. This seems silly to me because I've done quite a few stereo installs all on different cars and never had this problem but the fire wall is extremely sealed on my V. Any help is greatly...
  20. Anyone running over 400rwhp on the road course?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Just wondering........any power induced oversteer? What tires and rims are you running (bigger rears)? Does the car still track out straight? Do you need to modulate the throttle?
