squeak

  1. I have a sound that needs identifying too..

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    On ETC, when I floor it from a stop, there is a split second groaning noise that is similar to the sound traction control makes when active, or ABS -- however there is no accompanying shudder. The car shifts fine and runs fine -- however it freaks me out and I let off of the gas. If I take off...

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    The 2010 Ford retirees meeting is going on this afternoon across the street from my office. They have it every year during the industry think-tank week which brings up all the brass from GM/Ford/Chrysler. They also bring in some models from the upcoming year - so I thought I'd share a few with...

    I've been an avid GM loyal customer for over 30 years. In the past six years I've purchase three new Z06 Corvettes, a SSR, a Trailblazer SS and the Caddy. Three of the last four vehicles I've had problems with, either dealer induced or defects from the factory. Our Trailblazer SS has been a good...
  10. Extended warranty ???

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    How do forum members feel about extended warranty's. I have a 2008 STS4 that only has 3k miles on it. This car warranty was activated 18 months ago. The dealers push them and I am starting to receive offers in the mail. I have never purchased one in the past and have been lucky. I am sitting on...

    So I replaced the water pump, success. Refilled coolant system, success. Replaced all 8 injectors with no leaks, success. I didn't do the learn procedure, because I was focused on flushing the coolant system and filling it properly. Seemed to be OK. I took it for a drive, and the car ran...

  15. Squeak in Cargo Area

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum 2010-2016
    Have 1800km on my vehicle now and have developed an annoying squeak that seems to be coming from the cargo area. Had my son in the back seat and he thought that is was coming from either the cargo rail or the spare tire / storage compartment cover. I removed the cargo rail tie downs, but that...
  16. Squeak when shifting

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Okay, I've heard this on lots of different automatic cars (The most notable I can remember was a P71 Crown Vic) - when you're really getting on it accelerating right as you change gears the transmission will make a SQUEAAAK. It doesn't happen any other time except when changing gears - it varies...

  19. 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...
