  1. 2010 CTS Lower engine shroud/cover falling off on the freeway

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    While driving on the freeway about 70mph, the lower engine shroud on my CTS came unbolted and the airflow pushed it down into the pavement and got half ground to pieces. Being away on vacation, we had to drive up onto a curb to get under the car and take off the last 3 bolts that were still...
  2. Diff whine? Driveshaft center bearing? CV joint gone bad???? Please Help!

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Frickin A. I just spent the last couple days putting a new differential in my '04 only to discover that the exact same whine/hum is still there. The diff is brand spankin' new. My car developed an odd whine/hum somewhere along a 200mi drive. The noise wasn't there when I left my house, but as I...

    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...
  4. Deville Concours ---> DTS......Differences?

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    What are the major differences between the 1997-99 DeVille Concours and 00-05 Deville DTS? I know it's a whole new body and platform, but it's the same underlying principle below....the full size DeVille with all the sporty accoutrements. Does the DTS drive a lot tighter than the Concours? Does...

    Northstar Engines and System Technical Discussion
    Ok. I'm about 1000 miles into this rebuilt engine. Can anyone tell me why I would still be smoking? It smokes terribly when I downshift and anytime I am braking after exiting the interstate or after traveling at high speeds. 99 Seville STS. Here's what was done: Jakes head kit installed...
  6. Fuel Mileage Screen - Reset

    Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum (2010-2016)
    Might be a stupid question, but how do I reset the Fuel Economy screen? I've been watching the way I drive and can make it move higher (good thing) by adjusting my "lead" foot. What I can't figure out is how to reset it, for example when I fill up the tank again? Thanks for the advice...

    I live in an apartment, far from my family and family house. I do LOVE to spent some quality time with my car and have some small projects and repairs. But the main problem is I don't have a place! Indeed this is a common problem in large cities as far as I know. Street is not a good option at...

    Okay, So in follow up to my earlier post about the slugfest that is my Brougham going up a hill....it's at the shop for a full tune up today. The mechanic took it for a drive up and down the escarpment access and said it was misfiring at lock-up, whatever that (lockup) means. I know I was...

  18. Want to upgrade exhaust

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V Performance Mods
    Looking to upgrade my 09's exhaust. While I'm at it "thinking" adding headers and modified (sufficient enough to get me thru inspection) cats too. There's a lower pulley upgrade in the future. :yup: Knowing the Corsa's have low drone technology, having used a set on my 03 C5 Coupe, at idle I...

  20. It's a lot more fun to drive a slow car fast ....

    Community Lounge, Introductions and General Discus
    Rick's comment "It's a lot more fun to drive a slow car fast, than a fast car slow" has alot of merit. I certainly have enjoyed driving some slow, but with stick shift, cars fast. I can't say the same for fast, stick shift cars. My 1983 Scirocco didn't have a very high terminal velocity but with...
