  2. Oil Pres. Gauge, Sender

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    Has anyone replaced their Oil Pressure Gauge Sender, or had a problem with the Gauge itself? About a week ago, my Oil Pres Gauge started reading full scale (80Lbs.) as soon as started, but it does reset to zero when off. I highly suspect the Sender but not sure til I change it? I looked from the...

  4. Most stock longblock rwhp/rwtq, then H/C/I rwhp/rwtq?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Hey guys, I should be taking delivery of my '06 CTS-V in a few weeks or less. After perusing the vette/LS1tech boards for a while (this is my first GM LS motor, having delt with Ford 4v stuff in the past) I see that 400rw seems to be doable with the stock longblock + bolt ons/full exhaust/tune...
  5. DTS towing

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Does anyone here tow a boat with their DeVille? The rated towing capacity from 2000 to 2005 appears to be 2000 pounds. But for 2006, the towing capacity of the DTS is only 1000 pounds, just like my current ride, a 2001 Cadillac Eldorado. Why the decrease in towing capacity for 2006? Is a...
  6. Mixing Coolants.

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    I think I got yelled at for posting this in the wrong forum. Sorry. I was wondering how we felt about Prestone's 'any make any model' coolant. It says mixes with any anti-freeze. Is this stuff safe for N*'s or should we stick with the pretty orange DexCool?

  8. coolant color? & check engine light

    Cadillac Catera and Cimarron Forum
    What is the coolant color? My cat's coolant seems odd. It is yellow. Is it normal? Do I have to change the coolant? or just add coolant when lower than minimum? How can I check the coolant level? The check engine light somtimes on(3days), somtimes off(1day) since last week. Do I have to check it?

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    Man, in just a few years we went from showing some serious power on the street, dusting cars left and rite to barely coming up with wins. Its getting harder and harder to compete with average sedans with HP increasing in new models from less than "Caddy prestige" companies. I got Ford Focus'...
  13. Coolant Hell (and *gulp* headgasket?)

    HT4100 4.1, 4.5, 4.9
    Ok... quick background... I replaced the timing cover and water pump/inlet gaskets, new radiator... After that, I noticed a bit of a slow leak from the bottom of the inlet gasket. I figured I'd fix it later with some RTV...figured I had not been thorough enough on sealing that. Once...

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I use that green prestone (yellow bottle) that says it can be used for any year and model or color. I am assuming that this is already premixed or should I still add water to it?
