  3. 2013 ats 2.0t coolant temp sensor

    Cadillac ATS General Discussion Forum
    I believe this sensor is leaking. I have coolant dripping down the bellhouse of the trans and when i was doing my valve cover gasket and spun it in place to get the bolt holding the vaccum pump on possibly disrupting the o-ring. My question is, what holds this sensor in? I have attached a...
  4. Coolant leak near back of valve cover

    Cadillac ATS General Discussion Forum
    2013 ATS 2.0T RWD standard trans So my worst fear came true and i botched my valve cover gasket replacement. In short the replacement went fine, no leaks from the valve cover itself but in doing so i must have cracked a hose on the back of the block. I am beyond frustrated, but i have stepped...

    I bought my 2015 last year in the 60K mile range, after owning for 3 months the airbag harness needed replacing, then the dealership had my car for a 3 weeks because the GM strike was going on and I was told they couldn't get any parts in. After my car sat there for 3 weeks they said I needed a...

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I have a 1987 Cadillac El Dorado where I had the steering column rebuilt by Steering Column Services and they did a great job for a great price. Now I am having the worst time getting the U-Joint at the bottom of the floor board to open up enough to slide the end shaft of the steering column...

  8. Thinking about buying an 05 STS v8...

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    So the car is at about 130,000 right now, looks and feels like it has been driven pretty gently and to boot there is not a single scratch, dent or imperfection on the vehicle both inside or out. I guess what I'm asking is, long-term STS owners, what problems do you think I will run into? Or what...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    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...
