    Thank you all for your help. I will check it out
  3. Hi, so i wake up one random morning and my 2010 cts is completely dead. The message on the display says "battery volts low". i get my battery recharged fully at Canadian tire and reinstall. Car starts perfectly with no issues. I let it run for half hour then drive it around the city. All is still fine. no voltage drops when i drive around. volts drop from about 14.5 to around 12 when idling while parked. i think this is normal. however. the next morning i go to start it and it is completely dead again. this time its so dead my display is non-functional, my key fob cant lock or unlock the doors, and have absolutely zero power to anything. I assume there is some sort of parasitic drain since the battery died overnight from a 100% full charge. Maybe an alternator problem. i really have no idea whats causing the power loss overnight. any insights?? im not overly familiar with running my own parasitic drain tests.

  5. Ah. I guess I read the wrong information all these time. I got P041 code indicating a cam sensor problem. I do have a northstar not a 4.9L engine. Thanks Logan for the diagram. Is it easy to reach the sensor?

    Hello...

    Welcome. That sounds like a good arrangement if you take it out on the weekends to keep the gaskets lubricated and the gas fresh.
  8. Hello! 😀 I just ran across this site, joined, and wanted to introduce myself. I am fortunate enough to have a landlord who lets me drive his '96 LE Cadillac Sedan Deville. Sweet ride that he loves, but hasn't driven himself in over five years and won't sell. I've grown to love the car myself over the last several years and am, more or less, promised to inherit the car, eventually. Seeing is believing... Charlie will turn 80 this year...I am already 65 and don't own a vehicle. The car is only approaching 65k miles, but the body has seen its share of 'wear' that could easily be fixed. I hope to own the Caddy one day! It's a light metallic green with a dark green cloth top, and the green leather driver's seat fits my frame! The 32v Northstar engine sort of concerns me as I've heard that it is hard to work on, but other than that this is a dream of a car as far as I am concerned!

    They are out there! Seen several on line/fleabay/etc. along with a few universal units. Check Dorman products as they have similar looking universal units. Heres what the GM OE looks like:
  10. On the Northstar the camshaft position sensor is on the passenger side end of the rear cylinder head. No where near the oil filter housing. See attached pic. Do you really mean crankshaft sensors? There are 2 on front of engine....kinda near the oil filter housing. You do have the Northstar and not the 4.9L engine right?
  11. It's not really up to the dealer to find a part or solution for a 25 year old car. Anyway....there is a site that shows a short list of dealers that may have one. http://oemcats.com/oem-parts/18018429.html Don't hold your breath on that list....but may be worth checking.
  12. Can anyone help verifying camshaft position sensor is next to oil filter housing for a 94 deville? Don't want to waste time removing oil filter housing and can't find the sensor. Lol. Thanks

    Welcome. There is a similar discussion in 2014 here: Your mechanic is correct the part has been discontinued. I would call the local Cadillac Dealer parts desk and ask them what their replacement plan is , if there is an equivalent replacement.
  14. Hello All. I'm new here. Forgive me for starting a thread that I'm sure was covered already. I'm totally new to Cadillacs. Actually this is my first car that I have owned by myself. I inherited a 95 Cadillac Deville It has been leaking brake fluid and the mechanic I bought the car to to get fixed has told me the piece I need has been discontinued and hard to find. I told him I will try to help find it. I am having no luck. Any ideas where I can find what I need? I need a 18018429 proportioning valve. Is any other valve compatible? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for your time.
  15. Last week
  16. Gonna try and flush out the old core in my slop sink and see whats plugging it up.
  17. Yellow.. I wonder if someone put some kind of universal coolant in. Good to flush it out anyway. Glad you got good heat. Thanks for updating
  18. BTW: The antifreeze in the car is yellow. Any idea what brand it is? Or can I mix in some green in it to fill. Its not Dex-Cool!

    Good bye Betty White!

    when it comes to registration fees the states are all business

    Good bye Betty White!

    Wow, I think you are correct Bruce! I did not realize this, but when I looked it up this is what I found on WI DMV site... Now this doesn't say specifically the purchaser needs to register within this 30 days, but I'm sure they would love to get that revenue stream coming in... as well as make sure they want to know who's possession the vehicle is in ASAP in case of criminal use. ****************************************************************************************************** I sold my vehicle. Do I need to let the state Department of Transportation know? As of January 1, 2016 you must notify the Department of Transportation within 30 days if you have sold a vehicle. This includes junked vehicles sold with a bill of sale. You must report: Date of sale Price. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle The name of the buyer
  21. Well finally replaced the heater core! Yes, the hoses were a PIA to remove and install on new core. Took a few hours of screwing around to complete the install. Got the new core from Rock Auto for less than $30 bucks. New core was aluminum as the GM factory core was brass? with plastic tanks. Finally got excellent heat ! Sorry no pics.................

    Tack för ett snabbt svar... Tycker inte prislappen var vÀrst avskrÀckande, vad Àr alternativet, göra sjÀlv pÄ osÀkra kunskaper eller helt avstÄ... Jag ska genast ta kontakt med dom Mvh Peter

    Dragkrok

    Det kostade 10 000 kr. Mycket kanske, men Ă€r vĂ€ldigt proffsigt byggd och man ser inte att bilen har dragkrok nĂ€r man tar bort den löstagbara kroken. Priset inkluderade Ă€ven montage och alla tillstĂ„nd och EU-cerifikat som behövs för besiktningen. Är lite besviken pĂ„ Bilprovningen som endast godkĂ€nde (slentrianmĂ€ssigt) draget för 1.500 kg, nĂ€r bilens handlingar intygade en kapacitet pĂ„ ca 3. 000 kg

    Introducing the CT6-V Blackwing Twin Turbo V8

    I saw that also but it is not as simple as one would like to move to a new factory, unless they planned to move other vehicles that share the platform anyway. I do like the message that the CT6 is too important to discontinue.
