  1. Would appreciate instructions for changing the engine air filter on 2010 SRX. I found instructions for changing the cabin air filter but was unable to find anything on the engine air filter.
  2. My 2004 XLR has 25K miles on it and I guess I should change the coolant. Is this a big job and what is involved. Also I know on other Caddys they reconmend the coolant tablets. Should you use the tablets in the XLR coolant system?
  3. What is the hood and trunk made of. Seems like the front fender is a plastic or composite. Are there any magnetic, dentable or rustable panels on the car?
  4. so heres the issue i have a 93 devil 107 k and yesterday i found the trunk open i closed it issue solved so today i drove it radio on but volume off and now i turned the car off locked it with a viper alarm 5900 now the trunk and doors are unlocking and the trunk is popping uncontrollable . so i started it and it poped as well so i tied down my trunk did the drive of shame home and the trunk closed during driving and no is shut. so i got home tried to recreate the constant locks and trunk and nothing. my first thought is the battery but i replaced it in dec of 2010 and its a optima red top. soi pulled the fuses and checked the switches and found out my rear left door had a pinched wire that i guess got into the screws third and was making the lock activate. on the rear doors both of them the top part of the lock unlock doesn't work but the lock does so im thinking bad switches. the truk and doors are on different circuits so whats going on here
  5. Hey guys I was just wondering where the fuse is for the rear door cigarette outlet. I think the fuse is blown but I can't find the fuse. I check the fuse box under the rear seat and in the engine. under the rear seat there were 2 different fuses labeled "Cigar" and both of them were fine. Is there a fuse somewhere else?
  6. Where is the fuel filter located and how easy are they to change? I have the engine light on and took it to the dealer. He said the it was giving a lean code. He said to change the air filters which I did and it came back on. I was thinking the fuel filter should be next??
  7. I've noticed that the dash speedometer and the heads up display are not exactly the same. A few mph difference. Any idea which reading is more accurate. I'm assuming the digital readout of the heads up is the most accurate and set my cruise control and reaction to law enforcement sightings based on that... Anybody know for sure?
  8. I have a 2000 Cadillac Seville SLS. 32 Valve NorthStar. It is running rough and making some noise. The check engine light is on. The code is misfire on cylinder # 6 and misfire on cylinder # 6 pending. I changed the coil pack and no change. I pulled the #6 spark plug out and found that the piston is hitting the plug closing the gap. Thus the tapping noise also. I bought a shorter plug and nothing changed. this cylinder is still not firing and there is raw gas in this cylinder. Why would the piston be hitting the spark plug? Reply With Quote
  9. I am the owner of a 2002 seville sts, the passenger side climate control does not work, does not blow heat and does not blow cold it blows only lukewarm air. Also a clip on the passenger side on the dash has let go I don't know if that has anything to do with it. The driver side blows cold and heat so I don't know whats going on. I also notice that when I turn the heat on for the windshield it is weaker than I remembered it being, maybe a coincidence maybe not.... Any help would be appreciated, if anyone would like to see a picture of the dashboard clip that let go I can upload something. Cost to fix the A/C isn't an issue here, I love the car so if it sets me back a grand or two it's worth it.
  10. Has anyone found a web-site that sells XLR items such as: XLR cap, XLR golf shirt, XLR T-shirt, XLR key chain (not Cadillac logo), etc. ? If yes, please post web-sites unless this is not permissable. Thanks in advance for your feedback.
  11. Hi All, Not sure where to go with this, but I'll try here first. The lease on my 2008 Alpine White V is ending shortly. I'd like to buy the car. The buy out is about 75K. Seems high. Is there any way I can get it cheaper? Who do I negotiate with? The dealer says, it is what it is. GMAC says the same. Ideas?
  12. The passenger door lock switch lights up but the drivers side does not. The switch does work but just does not light up. Is this wrong?
  13. My car crossed over 70k miles recently, and afaik the serpentine belt has not bee replaced. I was looking at this today and with the tight clearance I can't figure out which pulley is the tensioner. This is a 2005 RWD Northstar. Anyone done this can give me any hints? Thanks!
  14. Yesterday, I accidentally drove my 2006 XLR with the truck upon in an underground garage, and damaged the exterior center mounted brake light at the tip of the trunk. Does anyone know what it will cost to replace? Should I purchase the part from someone other than the dealer, and then just have them swap them out?
