    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion

It's expected to arrive in ~2 weeks from now (production was scheduled last week, but no updates on the dealers system yet) I have a 2004 Nissan Xterra that I'm trading - they guaranteed...

    When we bought one of our vehicles, the dealer provided a coupon for what they called "First Ding Repair." The first one was free, but the coupon had to be used withing 90 days of vehicle delivery. Fortunately, no dings. But it got me curious. The paintless ding repair shop listed on the...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 2007 CTS-V Raven - negotiating to buy in the morning - help?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    The car is a 2007 w/ about 80k on it. It has failed (then passed) emissions twice in the last year of it changing hands (one dealer to another. car is 1-owner). Heard and ignored parade clunk (thanks iphone and cadillac forums on the fly!). I imagine its a result of the monster under the...
  10. I'm pondering a Porsche Boxster.

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    MORE LIKE 'POOR'SCHE Seriously though, I'm thinking about it. I've looked at all the warnings, all the quirks, all the hazardously expensive repairs. It seems like most of what goes wrong happens during the warranty period, so by now (8-12 years, 60-100k) all of it has been ironed out or...
  11. Squeaky, annoying, hard to find front end rattle. PLEASE help. '95 Eldo

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I did post this in the suspension area (no answers) --------- 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...

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    Ok. I'm about 1000 miles into this rebuilt engine. Can anyone tell me why I would still be smoking? It smokes terribly when I downshift and anytime I am braking after exiting the interstate or after traveling at high speeds. 99 Seville STS. Here's what was done: Jakes head kit installed...

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I have an 06 V with a few mods, cat backs, ported input manifold and throttle body, and a Lingenfelter cold air intake. Had a performance tune a couple of years ago and everything worked great for a couple of years until I cleaned and reoiled the air filter. I started getting the dreaded...

  16. I need a place to work on my car!!! Suggestions??

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    I live in an apartment, far from my family and family house. I do LOVE to spent some quality time with my car and have some small projects and repairs. But the main problem is I don't have a place! Indeed this is a common problem in large cities as far as I know. Street is not a good option at...

  18. 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...
  19. Rear Liftgate

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    I have an 06 ESV and when it rains and I open the tailgate, rain gets dumped into the rear crago area. It looks like the rain goes under the 3rd taillight and the runs forward and leaks down into the cargo area. Is this normal, if not how can I fix it. Just doesn't seem right. Thanks guys, Bob

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I found a 2002 Seville STS Vin9 L37 Northstar in cradle with trans/harness/pcm for a good deal. I searched the forum, but couldn't find a specific example that answered my question completely. My question is: "What do I need to do to get the dang thing to work in a 99 Seville STS?" I'm talking...
