    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Thanks in advance for reading this. I bought a 98 Deville 3 months ago w/ 125K miles. The only issue was a leaky radiator which I replaced. The issue now is that most of the time the temp runs 196 - 217, but once in a while it will get up to 240+ before it cools back down. Later I found out the...

    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...
  4. Freckled Chrome

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I believe this has been brought up before, but I don't remember a sufficient conclusion. I just got another piece of trim, from an '82 Sedan de Ville, which runs the center of the hood. The piece I have on my car (as some of you may remember) is broken in three places. The new piece is pitted...

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    So I get to my big client in Rochester yesterday, the big Buick/GMC store, and what do I (finally) see? A 2011 Regal, in real life, up close & in person. I saw it before it got it's PDI inspection, so I wasn't able to drive it (yet), so I'll just give my overall impressions real quick. -It's...

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    I got my Katillac (clever, eh?) on March 8th. Love it! I've seen very few of them so far in Southern California, so it gets lots of looks. But I digress... After driving it for 3 weeks I noticed the trim piece under the passenger-side side mirror was gone! I went over to check the driver's...

    Hi everyone! Just found that left front CV joint boot is spreading green stuff everywhere. I am looking for the part on gmpartsdirect.com, but I am not sure it is the stuff. (It just says JOINT KIT or something like that.) The part I found is numbered #19148843, is it right? Thank you

    She's pretty dirty. I haven't washed her in a week. Yours truly. Crossing into Wisconsin. Surprisingly enough, I-94 does have some fun areas in Wisconsin. The GS got great gas mileage! All this economy and 240 purebred ponies under the hood...how can you go wrong? It was surprisingly...

    I did a brake job on my SRX this weekend. Front rotors and pad and rear pads. All ceramic. I also did an air and oil and filter change. This is the third time I did my own oil change and I put in Castrol Edge for a change. I have to tell you that Mobil 1 looks nasty after 3000 miles. The...

    My concours is having a stroke or something. Passenger side window, foglight are completely out. Passenger side wiper works intermittently. Set it up for you: I blew a tire on the highway during the thickest part of the snowstorm we had on Sat. nite. Took some time to change out the spare in a...

    Pics as promised: Fairfield Inn, $35. Apparently no rooms with two beds? Ugh. Lalos for late night Mexican. SO good. The Oasis for epic burgers. Warren theater is amazing. Massive digital screen, classic decor, big comfortable chairs. "2012" was disaster porn.
