  1. Nice to see some updates to Cadillac's future direction. With the mainstream automakers hitting the EV market (on mass), it will be interesting to see what transpires in the BEV market. (I'm keeping my CT6 for a while though) 😉
  2. I had an Oldsmobile Intrigue that did very similarly when it had a bad crankshaft position sensor.
  3. Now that was is cool car, great history and I learned something too.
  4. Pretty good interview (I learned some stuff). I almost aborted when the interviewer spent almost 10 minutes on sounds and noise, and while certainly important, I don't think this was an apex question on a brand new car. And on this, the interviewer supplied too much commentary prior to finally getting to asking the question (almost showing-off) on how much she knew. Kudo's to to Jamie Brewer, Chief Engineer as being as transparent as she was allowed to be. And her comments at the end, defining her work and status as a female engineer in the automotive field were spot on (saying she held pa
  5. Agree with KHE; the slight tick is in all probability the lifters losing some of the oil (which quickly replaces itself on start-up), the ticking should almost immediately stop and the engine will not be put under any duress. By creating short start-ups, and not letting the oil get up to temperature, moisture gets in the oil and creates acids which can do a whole lot more harm than a short duration lifter tick.
  6. I can't vouch for this (but I did find it on the internet). Link: https://itstillruns.com/reset-obd1-computer-8262474.html
  7. Nice link, I never miss Eric O. on SMA (South Main Auto); great YouTube site.
  8. Found this (there may be other ways to check your Caddy; others may know and respond).

  9. Wow, calling that anything less than awesome would be an understatement; it is definitely an awesome survivor.
  10. Rockfangd hit the nail on the head. I'll add that when running the engine to temperature monthly (if you decide to do that), getting up to temp. doesn't just mean the water temp, you need to get the oil temperature to operating temperature to insure the moisture is purged from the engine oil and exhaust system. Jacking your vehicle can help preventing flat-spotting your tires unless your "getting up to temperature" (previous tip) includes driving your vehicle to accomplish your oil heating/circulating cycle. Taking your vehicle for a spin (on a picture perfect day) also circulates other flu
  11. Have you tried to go to rockauto.com or https://www.gmpartsdirect.com/ and looked them up. No guarantees, but they might have what you need.
  12. I'll agree with you Bruce (about naming). It seems even though they know that these new V's are like the old lesser V-Sports they are 'pressing' too much on just the name. They all acknowledge the Blackwing coming but base their videos as a point of contention. I also think Cadillac did a poor job in naming the models but the banter these reviewers put in comparing old versus new is a dis-service to those that may be in the market. Just review the vehicle as it is, and as a side note, mention that the new meaner version is on the way.
