  1. I had similar conditions, sporadically, on a 2000 Olds Intrigue; saw an occasional chuggle on startup. My problem was a failing crank position sensor. Never saw an engine code.
  2. Nice review, pretty spot-on, agree with their evaluation of the V-6 but I think Cadillac suspended the four year maintenance (in the U.S.); but don't hold me to that. I had a '17 XT5 for three years and found that if I hadn't wanted to move to a sedan (CT6 in my case), I probably would have gotten another XT5.
  3. I don't know if I'll be a buyer but I'm certainly going to give this a good look (when more details become available). This effort, so far, seems to be an introduction of a true Cadillac in the field of 'electrics'.
  4. While I've never use stop leak in my STS, I would assume you could put the product in the over flow tank and run through some heat cycles. I've found that the a/c delco tabs work quite well in another vehicle I've used them on. Link: Amazon.com: ACDelco GM Original Equipment 10-108 Cooling System Sealing Tabs - 4 g (Pack of 5): Automotive p.s. I yield to Bruce's advise about the radiator hose; that certainly would expedite product insertion.
  5. GM's commitment to a greener world is commendable as is the rest of the movements that are being seen in Europe and other parts of the world, however, without some softening of the use of coal in China and the rest of southeast Asia, I fear, this may just be 'peeing in the wind' as far as the ultimate solution. (I know this is a very complex subject and needn't be debated here, but just saying)
  6. Comparing this year to last is pretty meaningless in an absolute relationship by citing pandemic to exiting pandemic months. What might be gleaned from the numbers is positive though, that recovery is on spot despite the current chip shortage, which has hit different manufacturers at different levels. I wonder what the percentages would show for second quarter 2019; more revealing I would think.
  7. Hopefully this process will be economical; so maybe an exportable product, as well as a secure Li source for in-house battery production. If you believe that the BEV revolution will happen as fast as they predict (personally I think it's coming but at a slower pace) a secure source for Li will be critical. I sure hope 'someone' has a plan for all these Li batteries when they start needing to be re-cycled.
  8. Just thinking out loud: does your key have a resistant puck in it; these can get damaged. Do you have another key to try?
  9. Here's a link that might help: It's over my head but might be what you're looking for. What is HTHS ? | Bob Is The Oil Guy
  10. 0-20 is your recommended viscosity; this will flow a little better than 5-30 and your engine was designed with 0-20 in mind. Your engine won't detonate using the slightly more viscous oil but if something does go wrong (engine wise) and your dealer determines you used a non-recommended oil, you could void your warranty.
  11. I'm going to give the Lyriq a look when it comes out (no pre-order for me); Interesting to see where Cadillac is going. It's going to take a lot for me to give up my CT6 though.
  12. I have a '04 Yamaha FJR-1300 since new. I'm creeping up on 40,000 miles (I know, not that many for an older bike). I used it a lot when I was working as commuter transportation, and now retired, usually just for Sunday morning runs. The FJR is a four cylinder sport-tourer with windshield and hard bags; very quick bike if you are so inclined, comfortable tourer and she'll run all day without a whimper; six point six gallon tank and has an over 300 mile range before refueling.
