  1. Diff whine? Driveshaft center bearing? CV joint gone bad???? Please Help!

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Frickin A. I just spent the last couple days putting a new differential in my '04 only to discover that the exact same whine/hum is still there. The diff is brand spankin' new. My car developed an odd whine/hum somewhere along a 200mi drive. The noise wasn't there when I left my house, but as I...
  2. Another Bad Maggie Bearing.

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Back in May my Maggie had a bad bearing at the rear of the jack shaft. I got it fixed by a local shop who put in ceramic bearings. I have put on about 3K Miles since then and the same bearing is bad again. Any ideas on what would be causing this bearing to go? Once i get this one replaced it...
  3. 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...

    I have this screeching noise occasionally coming from the front brakes when I apply them, I was just wondering what it might be and how I could fix it?
  6. Brakes clunking?

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    When I brake lightly at slow speeds, I can hear a clunking noise in the rear. Sounds like a rollercoaster slowing down in the load/unload area. Heavy braking doesn't make any noise. Last week before I left for Florida, I hosed off the rotors and took it out and it wasn't making the noise...

    I've got a 2003 CTS, 46,000 miles that has a dull rattling, noise coming from the left front of my car (under the hood). I've had the struts replaced but the noise is still there. It starts only after I've driven a few miles and then continues while I am moving either slow or fast. Very...

    I have a 2003 DTS that is rarely driven and stored outside. A humming noise gets louder as fan speed is increased. The cabin filter was dirty and had a hole in it, replaced it but the humming noise problem still there. I believe a lot of leaves got thru the filter. Any ideas on what i else i...

    I was driving home one night and all of a sudden a "low oil pressure--stop engine" message came on the nav. A few seconds later it started making a clunking noise. I get home and park and the car cuts off completely and wouldn't start back up. I replaced the battery but the engine still makes...

    Okay, my 98 catera is making a strange popping noise and it comes from front driver side wheel area.

  13. Help Identify Sound

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I have this sound (actually two) in my 02 Seville and for the life of me, I can't figure out what it is. The best way to describe it is that it sounds like a mixture of metal rattling and water bubbling. It is audible on the driver side only, just below wheel level and is definitely inside the...

  17. strange noise from interior

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    my 2000 eldorado is making a funny gurggling sound accelerating to freeway speeds. Not sure if I can even explain it right. It sounds like water gurgling through a plastic pipe or possibly a small flap type door rattiling trying to open or close under to much air pressure. And the strange part...
  18. Seats make noise

    Cadillac STS-V Series Forum
    Do any of your seats make a lot of noise when you move around on them? I read about a fix for squeaks but I'm not quite sure I understand if it's the same noises I am talking about. It doesn't seem like it's in the foundation of the seat but more in the leather and foam. Sorry for the vagueness...
