  1. Upcoming Test Drive: What to Watch For?

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Hey folks - A dealer about an hour from me has contacted me saying they have 2 Vs on their lot, both with manuals. Unfortunately (IMHO) they have the base seats, so I wouldn't even consider them as potential candidates. They're well aware of that, but still want me to drive up and wring one...

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Hi gang, new here at posting but I'll get it. My shift indicator lights up all levels. Is there an alignment I can do to remedy this? I pulled a code of PC1520 tonight.
  3. Just what are people talking about...One wheel drive??!!

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    More than one person had tried to tell me that for the most part, the power on my FWB is put onto the road by the rear RIGHT wheel. The diff takes over under this or that kind of circumstances. Can this be true? I thought the whole point of a diff was to impart the power onto the road evenly...
  4. Help! found diff plumbing on my drive!

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee

Today, while sweeping up the leaves, I found a well made silver nut with a 3/8 splined pipe one end, and what had been a copper pipe or connector screwed into the other. It looked like it was made...

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    Since some of you have already accepted delivery of the vehicle and had some time to drive it and experience it can you share that experience. Specifically: 1. How does the acceleration feel? 2. Does it feel a lot faster then the V1? 3. Did anyone try to run you yet? results? 4. Do you...

    2009-2015 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion
    [sorry, no pics!!] Thanks to my incessant V-this and V-that about my V1 and upcoming V2, my boss decided to get a V2. His isn't here yet (next week or so) but his salesperson called him today to tell him that a red one was up for grabs as the original buyer changed his mind (no reason given...

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    Can somone point me to a link on exactly how the CTS driveshaft works? There must be an informational page on how the shaft works, why the drive shaft is two pieces, with a carrier bearing. Also on how much angle is acceptable for the rubber biscuits to take. Working on a swap to another...

    Coming home last night, take off from a side street stop. It started shifting through the gears and then all of sudden, acted like it was in neutral. Could rev the car and it was losing speed. Once it slowed to around 15-20 mph, it would grab a little. Shifted down 1 manually, tried...
  13. 2009 CTS 4 hard drive

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Is there any way to make the hard drive recognize files other than only audio files? (I obviously want to keep it legal and within the terms of the warranty.) It would be nice to transfer some movies onto the hard drive. Also, where is the hard drive located in the car?

    :wtf:What is the best gear to drive in? I have always used third to drive in city and OD to drive on the Highways. I have been reading a lot of posts and they seem to suggest that I drive in OD at all times. Is this true? I have a 99 Deville with 160K.
