  1. Today
  2. The raised area reduced the inside diameter to just 16". Time to "bite the 'Bullitt'" and order the 18X10 wheels that I have wanted:
  3. The problem is a raised ring just behind the spokes. 18" wheels typically fit over 14" brakes, but the factory rim said "no".
  4. Problem: after installing my big brake upgrade, the 18" Bullitt style wheels don't fit.
  5. Love the wheels, Mike. Understood about the internet chatter over 5-114.3 pattern. Grand Prixs use Mustang Wheels all the time. Some for racing. No issues and years of experience. Still, I understand people wanting to stay away from them. Trivia: Rent-N-Roll in Little Rock orders and sells the 5-114.3 wheels for their 5-115 customers and argue that they are the same pattern. It did me no good to disagree with them.

  7. Yesterday
  8. The last I heard was a release as a 2020 model (CT4); darn, I wish they would hurry up, I'm starting to push old age and all these great promises, sometimes, just aren't. I'm going to give the Buick a look but if info on the new Caddy becomes available, and it looks even better, I might just wait. (I'm not bragging nor complaining, just that I'm 67, time is becoming a consideration). Thanks for the dialogue; appreciated Bruce. Chuck
  9. I hope I’m right but you may be. Attractive to use a fwd platform on their smallest offerings.
  10. Last week
  11. Good catch/observation; yeah, your probably right.
  12. I would not think so. The Regal is on the e2xx (epsilon) front engine / fwd or awd platform while I suppose CT4 will still be on Alpha front engine / rear drive or awd platform. They have shared corporate powertrains but I think Cadillac wants unique powertrains again.
  13. I'm also wondering whether the CT4 (ATS & CTS replacement) will be twins or cousins to the new Buick Regal. The upcoming Buick Regal GT looks very good (it uses the corporate V-6: 3.6 liter) that the Cadillacs currently uses. The regular (new) Regal hatch, and the Regal Tour X to me is a station wagon but uses a turbo-4. There is still some room for proper sedans, so if the new Caddy and Buick bring the goods they may do okay in sales. I believe Cadillac is also in development of an XT6, but as with the XT4, somewhat late.
  14. I think the XT4 is about 2 years late to market, considering the ingredients are all off the shelf. Once the ATS didn’t make sales targets all the other sedans followed and it became clear low gas prices pushed the market back to trucks & SUVs. It would have been great to have the XT4 two years ago instead of next year.
  15. As the article suggested, Johan needs to pay a little more attention to the U.S. While global sales are up, in this case global mostly means China, and that is kind of all your eggs in one basket. The XT4 needs to be a hit (for the U.S.) in my opinion, and when the ATS and the CTS are replaced with the CT4 (I believe), that needs solid sales figure as well. Granted Johan has only been at the helm for 3 1/2 years but very shortly the honeymoon will be over and his decisions will be fully his own shortly. p.s. the video on the CT6's SuperCruise was pretty entertaining, and at least in the demonstration, looked promising.
  16. Although de Nysschen has been at Cadillac for just under 3.5 years (he joined in August 2014), the recently released numbers of Cadillac global sales seem as though the company has been energized — in China.Not so much in the U.S. Read more: https://www.autoblog.com/2018/02/16/johan-de-nysschen-cadillac-china-us/
  17. Should work just fine. Any of the E/K platform should work ok. I have done tons of them. From all kinds of years. I might add that if it was replaced with a aftermarket it may be different Welcome to Caddyinfo forum
  18. Hey guys. I'm looking at picking up a 1994 Eldo Touring Coupe this weekend, and the power antenna needs replaced. Will one from a 1996 and up work, or do I need one from 92-95? Thanks in advance

  22. GM Korea Company (GM Korea) announced today that it will cease production and close its Gunsan plant by the end of May 2018. The Gunsan facility has been increasingly underutilized, running at about 20 percent of capacity over the past three years, making continued operations unsustainable. View the full article
  23. I have a 97 Cadillac Eldorado and started having overheating issues about a month ago I found out what was causing it to overheat. The Purge line was plugged up so I unplugged it put new coolant in and got on the highway and it overheated again , after a few days of trying to figure out what was causing it to overheat I realized that the fans weren't coming on. I pulled the fans out to test them and they tested good, tested the relays and all of those were good, checked the fuse and it's good what else could be the problem
  24. Battery revisited 2006 DTS

    Update: first, thanks to all that have replied and participated. After doing a lot of research into how the battery charging operation works in this car, in my last post on Dec 28 I mentioned that I was thinking that the problem is that Lady just doesn't drive the car often or long enough. I explained my theory to her, and showed her to monitor the battery voltage on the dash display. We leave the display setting to show the battery voltage all the time. Since Dec, she does watch the voltage reading, and drives it often enough to allow the voltage to drop down to 12.x or 13.x volts, which is where it should be the battery is in a good state of charge. Since her work place is so close to her house, and the speed limit is so low during the drive, she sometimes has to just drive around a few miles from time to time when it needs it. When the voltage display reads mid-to-high 14 volts or higher (if it reaches the 15 volt range, it definitely needs to be driven a while, and/or the battery put on a charger) then she drives it around until it drops back to normal range. Although it's been a while now, and there is not been another "no start" issue, I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that an intermittent problem still doesn't crop back up. But after learning how the charging works on this model car, i fell pretty confident.
  25. My 2002 ETC's seat memory doesn't work. It puts the seat in random positions, both for driving and for the exit function. It is intermittent. Sometimes works correctly for a few days or weeks, sometimes less. It doesn't move the seat when I'm driving, though. Codes are: RFA 1064 MSM - all of them it seems - about 6 I think. Is there a way to diagnose and fix this?
  26. Power window control problem

    First aid is to spray WD40 down into the switches using the little red tube. Manipulate each switch as you spray. Do it alot. I've fixed several window switches this way.
