  3. It is the front of the engine on the passenger side of the block. I can see the hose but have no idea as to how to get to it. There doesn't seem to be a way from the bottom , but that is why I am asking if anybody has ever done this repair.
  4. So wait is this in front of the engine or the back? It looks like the AC compressor which IIRC is front bottom of the engine. So you are saying they are on the Radiator side. What about from underneath?

    TPS and ICM Question

    Winterset, yes, I have cleaned it and that didn't work. Then I replaced it and still have the problem. So unless I got a bad one, I'm guessing that's not the problem. I wish that was it because this is driving me crazy.
  6. Thanks for the replies. The leak is almost a steady stream when I pressurize the system. I can see the hose but I have no idea as to how to get to it. It looks like the radiator and condenser have to be removed to get to it.
  7. Those pipes are long gone! discontinued!! check cadillacsonly.com in CA
  8. Hello. If they are anything like the mid 90s platform they are not that fun. Do the pipes look rusted? If so I would expect to replace the pipes and hoses. It could be that #7 hose. Check the clamps if you can. Think they were wormgear. If you can spray the area with brake cleaner and dry it good. That should help to closer pinpoint the source of the leak. How much of a drip is it? Sorry you had not gotten a response yet. Must have gotten missed.
  9. I've many no-start posts, mine is similar but different. Intermittent no start. Push start button and dash goes black, comes back after a couple minutes. This has been ongoing for a year. 1) New Battery 2)New Starter 3) Replaced push button 4) It doesn't appear to be the neutral safety switch (put in neutral, wiggled around, etc) 5) Replaced Hi amperage wire to started It happens if the car is warm or cold. If you let it sit for an hour, it will start. If you put power to the purple wire, the starter turns over. Help. If I can't fix it, I'm going to sell it, I can't have this.

    It's Been Sold since May 1, 2013, But...

    Update on December 9, 2018 - a new CarFAX shows that the car still is in my name, over five years after being sold. NEVER let someone leave with a signed-over title. Get their signature and information on the title and put it in for re-registering yourself. This is why car dealers do all the paperwork and never let the buyer have the title to file.
  11. Welcome! I think you are on the right path; heat the plastic but be careful not to use so much heat that you damage the paint below it. Can you post before / after pictures as you go?
  12. New to the forum just got a 2004 Deville, on the doors it looks like a plastic edging to prevent nicks, the problem is that dirt or mildew got under the adhesive and looks horrible. I am thinking that a heat gun would loosen it up to remove, has anyone had this issue? also can you get replacement strips?

    Stiff Shifter 1997 Deville

    Thanks Barczy. I will drop the column and try that. Links were replaced a few years back with greasable ones. I changed them due to the noise. MY next try is the swaybar bushings Update. I dropped the column this morning and lubricated the pivots. I ran it up and down about 20 times. I left the hush, and lower dash panel out until I find out if it helps it. This way it will be easier to drop it again to do the cable. I have already done the transmission side before when I first noticed the issue. I will let you know what I find.

    Stiff Shifter 1997 Deville

    There is a ball in socket type joint on top of the column that dries out and needs lubricated. Drop the black hush panel, pull the second panel out that covers the topside underneath of the column and then the thin piece of metal held in by 4 7mm bolts. Finally, the column drops down with removal of 4 13mm bolts. The ball and socket joint is on the top side. Your sway bar links up front might be the culprit for the noise over bumps.

    Stiff Shifter 1997 Deville

    Hi Bruce. Both. When I took it out of the garage a few weeks back it was stiff. When outside it is even worse

    TPS and ICM Question

    I can only speak in general terms about what triggers a request for increased engine rpm, but the pcm uses the isc motor to perform this request. I keep a clean throttle body, but as we know, the Northstars tend to have clean exhausts and gummed up throttle bodies. Anywho, you will be surprised that even with a good throttle body cleaning, the valve to control the idle might be sticking and remain gummed up even after a tb cleaning. What happens then is pcm sends a request to increase rpm, the isc doesnt respond, so additional requests are sent where the valve opens to an extreme level and then the idle is too high. The pcm then keeps trying to lower it, in increments, but it is stuck at high idle. When the car is shut off or started, the isc motor becomes active where it successfully runs thru more extreme steps to increase and decrease idle and returns to its correct default starting position. Also, sometims after i shut my car off, i hear the throttle body clicking for a few minutes, and i traced it back to the isc. I never removd or cleaned my isc motor on my 96 Deville,, but you might consider that there might be some gum and tar causing it to stick and malfunction. I have removd and cleaned for other GM engines.

    Stiff Shifter 1997 Deville

    is it garaged or are these outside overnight symptoms?
  18. Hi All. So unfortunately I have to drive my D'Elegance this winter. I found it has a few issues with the cold. I replaced the battery today as it could not handle it. The shifter is so hard to move I am afraid of breaking something. It is fine when it is warm out and when it warms up but not when cold. My 1996 was the same way but not as bad as this one. I ordered a new cable from the dealer this morning. I am just hoping it is only the cable and not something in the column or transmission. Anyone have any issues with these? On a side note the front end sounds like crap as well when cold. Rides nice but makes nasty clunking noises when hitting small bumps. There again when warm outside 60*+ no noise. I have new front Arnott struts but cannot find the rest of the parts needed to assemble them. They have been sitting since last year because of this. If desperate the only thing I can think of is to buy a used set and disassemble them to get what I need. Happy Holidays to all.

    Rough Idle on reverse, Drive and sometimes at stop.

    As Logan notes it could be many things, I kind of did what I hate, to knee jerk to a conclusion, smack me in the head please! . I have actually seen ignition wire or connection problems when cold and damp go away when warmed up. One thing, if this is related to a misfire due to a carboned up valve, I believe you would see misfire codes, P300 or P30X where X stands for a specific cylinder # in history or current. Or even a flashing CEL indicating a misfire. How long when cold?, till it enters CLOSED LOOP? Does it appear to be rough in OPEN LOOP? Definitely have someone check both history and current P or powertrain codes. Monitoring misfire codes and long and short term fuel trim would be helpful.

    It really could be anything right now.... DI engines are kind of known to carbon cake the intake valves. I have 3-4 DI cars here and have never had the carbon problem that I'm aware of. I guess we are offering ideas on what it could be. Pretty sure you will need a scan tool to see any engine data....one of the parameters would show the fuel pressure. No way to hook up a gauge on a high pressure system. Pretty sure you will not find a fuel filter. You might find this link helpful.. http://www.underhoodservice.com/direct-injection-diagnostics-taking-pressure-readings/ .
  22. “I had very constructive meetings with members of Congress from Ohio and Maryland. I share their concerns about the impact the actions we announced last week will have on our employees, their families and the communities. These were very difficult decisions -- decisions I take very personally. I informed the members that many hourly employees at the impacted U.S. plants will have the opportunity to work at other U.S. GM plants and that we are committed to working with them to minimize the impact on the communities. I also informed them that all salaried GM workers impacted by these actions are being offered outplacement services to help them transition to new jobs.” View the full article

    Good Morning all, just a follow up, i will be looking into my intake valves this weekend to see if they have carbon build up, how ever i also read that it could be a possible fuel line issue? Like dirty fuel lines or something. I have noticed that the car only does this vibrations when its cold, after the car has been on or it has been driven for 15-20 Minutes it runs super smooth and no issues at all when in park reverse or drive. i am thinking this is being caused by dirty intake valves as this is a direct injection engine and it has not been clean in over 90k miles. but until i look at them i will not know. Any ideas of what else it could be if the valves are clean?

    CTS Coupe Sunroof?

    Wait so it is only a sunroof? In a Cadillac... Maybe there was not enough room to go back? I dont know because I am not a big fan of them. Sunroof opens up at rear only Moonroof opens rearward and upward

    CTS Coupe Sunroof?

    THANKS, Bruce. Back to the hunt . . .

    CTS Coupe Sunroof?

    I think you are correct. The ATS Coupe sunroof does open normally.
