    2014+ Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Let's just say yesterday was a long day, before I realized what I was doing I drained my transmission instead of my oil pan :( I now need to refill my Transmission but can't for the life of me figure out where the the Transmission fill plug is. I know it's under the car, but that's about it...

  5. question about transaxle spindles

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    So I changed my axles a while back and I noticed that the output shaft from the transmission once the axle was removed I could move around with my finger. It seemed like there was a ridiculous amount of play... I asked a buddy of mine and he said that it's normal. Is this true and why...
  6. Manual Transmission Fluid Leak?

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    I have a 2007 2.8L 6spd. I was changing my oil and checking all of my fluids and everything looked good, except for the tiny manual transmission fluid resevoir (just in front of the coolant tank on the driver side). It is empty, but I can't tell how long it has been like that. Also my car has...

    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 DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Hello all... figured that until I can get the 01 DTS into the shop, I'd at least try to fill up or add trans fluid to try to decrease the symptoms I've been having... symptoms: a noticeable 'clunk' when coming up to red light at the point where the car stops; a lack once and awhile when...

  17. 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...
