1993 Cadillac Coupe DeVille, 2004 Cadillac CTS-V
Discussion Starter · #1 ·
Hello, I have a problem with my 04 CTS-V and was wondering if I can get some help. I was driving the other day, trying to get back home and I thought I would just try to get there faster.. So I dropped it in 3rd and stepped on it.. Well around 5200 RPM the car acted like it was redlining and the back end jerked to the left, almost causing me to wreck! Fortunately there was no one around and I was able to maneuver the car back into a straight line and pull over to the side of the road to catch my breath. I'm completely confused about what might be causing this, because it wasn't but a week ago I could redline 3rd gear without the rear end breaking loose and now I can't get over 5200 in 3rd. I had my dad drive it and he said the car in 3rd gear wasn't making any power over 4500 RPM and it acted like it was redlining at 5200 like I said above. If anyone could help it would be very appreciated! Sorry if I seem like a noob..
