  9. How much engine vibration is too much?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Just bought the V about 5 days ago. I am curious if anyone can quantify how much vibration is too much. At a stoplight, I can feel the lope of the engine idling. Not sure if this is just natural, or an indication of worn motor mounts/tranny mounts. The car is a 2004 with ~29.7k miles. I have...

  16. clunking when accelerating from stop

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    95 Deville 4.9. So I'm getting this clunk when I take off from a stop. Kinda feels like when a CV joint is bad. But when I sit with the brake on and go between drive and reverse, it doesn't make that klunk. Any ideas what might be the cause?

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I like the express power windows, but every now and then I want to stop them mid-way. With the window already open, no problem stopping them on their way up ... just pull up momentarily on the switch to make them stop. BUT ... this doesn't work if you have them closed and want to stop them...
  20. 1989 Cadillac Deville slams into gear from park. Not tranny problem.

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    I JUST bought a 89 Deville with a 4.5/auto trans. When I shift from park to reverse it slams(or clunks) in REALLY hard, the same thing happens when I go Neutral to drive. If I pull the shifter straight down from Park to drive it doesn't slam. I THINK I have narrowed it down to 2 problems, it...
