  1. 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...
  2. An old dog found his way home.

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I bought back the first car I was handed down, when I turned 16. My dad bought the car around 1997, when a local gas station that sold cars, was selling the land. They auctioned off all of the cars, and my dad was the only one to bid on this 1983 DeVille. He just bid on it for fun, and...
  3. 2007 CTS-V Raven - negotiating to buy in the morning - help?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    The car is a 2007 w/ about 80k on it. It has failed (then passed) emissions twice in the last year of it changing hands (one dealer to another. car is 1-owner). Heard and ignored parade clunk (thanks iphone and cadillac forums on the fly!). I imagine its a result of the monster under the...
  4. Pics from Rock 'n August 2010

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Rock 'n August is an annual week-long event in St. Albert, Alberta that's all about classic cars. There are various events throughout the week such as a cruise, drive-in movie, dinners, and an all-day show 'n shine to conclude the week (which is what I went to). I was hoping there would be more...
  5. how and where to run through firewall..? - cutout power with key on?

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    I'm installing cutouts and am looking for the best (easiest) place to run the wires through. The DMH come with nice terminations already soldered on. I hate to cut these to fish wires through. I was looking at the large 4" big a$$ rubber grommet for the main harness just above and behind the...

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I am looking for a new and not rebuilt Steering box. Does anyone know where one might be able to find a brand new Steering box to a 1993 Fleetwood? Anyone with experience from rebuilt ones? As good as new?
  7. Computer setup question

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    OK, I was up until 3:30AM screwing around with this, and talking to like 3 people from India....so I just got up and my schedule is all screwed up for the day... I'm redoing my computer setup: new auxiliary computer, new main computer, 4TB NAS and new monitor. I bought all this crap almost 3...
  8. screwed up big time - need a coolant crossover

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    Was doing the water pump on my 99 Deville. Turned it the wrong way trying to get it out and snapped off some of the retaining lugs. Does anyone have a coolant crossover they can sell me, assuming I ever get the current one out. It has what looks to be a part number on it: 12553133. If not, the...
  9. Big day tomorrow!

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    I know you guys have dogged me for coupe updates, and I appreciate that. You aren't the only ones. I just got a letter from my classic insurer, and they require an updated appraisal on my 81. So... it comes out of the garage tomorrow. Wash, mount up the wires, etc. The appraiser gets here...

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Yes, it happened to me too! I drove to a Mall lot and parked there, I was gathering my stuff to leave the car that I saw a Grand AM came to park beside my car, I watched him and felt that the kid is approaching to my car very near, and then I felt my car moved a bit! After inspecting the car...

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    I now have a contact who works in the right place to get me discount pricing on Magneride and CVRSS shocks and struts. These are the OEM parts by the same manufacturer. I'm not promising exact prices yet, but I'm dealing direct with Delphi Automotive and I expect some very reasonable discounts...

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    I know until I get in one myself I won't really know. That being said I have to ask is there a big difference in the performance & reg CTS ride? Is the performance going to be a lot more uncomfortable ? Appreciate all of your thoughts. Thanks
