  1. DAVE..........My Delco trunk mounted unit was bolted to the floor of the trunk on the right side. The cable was run under the carpet. The dealer had it installed by a outside vendor.
  2. I had a GM/Delco trunk mounted unit in my 96 Deville. $pendy at the time but worked fine !
  3. I have seen this adv. for these new studs for use in a Northstar pulled thread/ headgasket repair that are used instead of timeserts. Anybody know of /and or used these "miracle" studs???????? http://www.northstarperformance.com/sgstuds.php
  4. Yea.......That 06 for $29k is gone also ! Somebody got a deal! My that V one for $48k is interesting too...................
  5. Heres the full story on them: http://www.allpar.com/mopar/turbine.html Wanna cry? Heres the video of them being crushed to avoid the taxes: http://www.turbinecar.com/burnfree.htm Heres Chryslers 1977 turbo prototype:
  6. A used car multi store/multi line superstore in Syracuse NY has a 06 XLR for $29k !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! http://www.usedcarking.com/inventory/detai...ehicle_id=W9364 Not to mention base 08 DTS for $21,xxx !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! http://www.usedcarking.com/inventory/detai...hicle_id=P29177 I can only imagine what my 07 is worth ! But wish I had $29k layin' around so I could steal that XLR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  7. The Syracuse area has lost 6 Ford dealers, 2 Chev/Buick/Pont. dealers all last year!
  8. This is my 3rd Deville with the Bose system. My 1st was a 90 Deville with the Delco/Bose gold series CD system and that mother ROCKED! It was the best sounding car system I had ever heard. My 03 had the Bose also................. Still haven't had a chance to figure this one out ! Since I got back from Daytona we have had tons of snow! 3 feet in 1 day too! My poor truck has been having the snot worked out of it plowing daily............... Gonna be lovin' that 5/100 GM warranty cuz something $pendy will break! I only hope this Caddy will be as troublefree as my last 4 even tho the 03 had only 50k on it while the others had over 100k when traded..............geo
  9. Yea Guys...................Thats my OLD Deville and its a 03 ! I always wondered why it had no hood crest. I will also say its a base model too! I will note that the dealer installed the chrome garbage on the window pillars also along with some pinstripes with a Caddy crest in them. My o7 DTS is solid diamond white and I assume a level 3 model because it has every option. The Nav is pretty neat but will note it also controls the Bose sound system (which sucks....Sounds terrible...But may not have it figured out and adjusted correctly!) Not to mention a bench seat !!!!!! It is a pre-owned from Boca with 3900 miles and was traded to a MB dealer then auction to the Daytona dealer. Not a bad deal for $28k. The gave me $15k for the 03. I shopped new 07s at home in NY but was only offered $10k but the lowball is expected since I get the GM employee deal. Even with the GM deal a 50k sticker new 07 would of cost almost $40k.......................... It was a moment of weakness !!!!!!!!!!!!!..............geo Sorry no pics. Been on the road from Fla to NY.............geo
  10. Well.......Went and done it ! Had to get me a new shiny DTS and sadly say bye bye to my 03 Deville ! http://lloydbuickcadillac.vinmanagersites....aspx?ID=2250408 I will miss it !................geo BTW: Gotta change my sig too!
  11. Thats what I thought BBF but thought I might have missed the post stating if it was done or not.....................
  12. Has anybody actually done a compression check on this car to verify if it actually has a blown head gasket and not simply a intake gasket or a broken hose etc.???????????????
  13. Seems the Ford guys over in the snowplowing forums are having major oil pan rust out problems on their late model trucks: http://www.letstalksnow.com/forums/showthr...rust&page=2 thats just one of many threads............Funny ....don't note any of this issue with the GM trucks tho.
  14. Its called 3-m invisible bra. Its sold in rolls and kits for hood, rocker panel, etc. protection. Heres just one of many dist. of the stuff: http://www.invisiblemask.com/site.html A quick google search under 3m invisible bra will bring up many dist. It is most likely avalable at any auto body supply shop near you.
  15. Forgot to mention............I was "offered" a big fat $10,000 trade for my 03 Deville with 51k miles ! I wasn't insulted or shocked................. Considering the 07 DTS they had were $26k ! But they were nothing special no bose, chromies, sunroofs or diamond paint. Just rent a car base specials in white, cashmere, or silver ! Quite the deal for anyone who wants to finally step up to a current year Cadillac and send their camcord to the crusher ! Its just funny Cadillacs suffer such depreciation as with most American cars ! I recently traded my 04 Chevy 2500 x-cab 4x4 for a 07 Chevy 2500 x-cab 4x4 and they gave me $21,500 ! Of course they sold it 2 days later for $23,900 ! Oh well.............I get the GM employee deal and only paid $29k new. My Deville was $48k sticker and my GM deal was around $33k after rebates, employee bonus cash, Cadillac loyalty bonus, GM card etc. Wow ! $10 grand trade........... But its been almost troublefree and i will expect another several years of service before I get another !
  16. Heck in my neck of the woods Syracuse NY the local Caddy dealer has 07 DTS (ex-rentals) $26,000 , 07 STS v-8 awd? $33K, 05 SRX v-8 awd $27k, 05 SRX v-6 $24k, 04 SRX v-6 awd $19k !!!!!!!!!!!!!! OUCH!!!!!!!!!! It doesn't make sense to buy new !
  17. I wonder if your Caddy has the speed controlled volume feature and it may be activated???????? I know my GM trucks of that year have it. Can't remember if my 96 Deville had it? Anyone????.......................
  18. My 03 Deville starts in 1st with the TC off also...................... My 96 or moms 98 Deville both started in 2nd! ...........geo
  19. If indeed your EBTCM module is bad check E-bay. There are several rebuilders of this very pricey unit...................
  20. Both my Caddy and truck are near the end of their factory warranties................. After getting screwed by a aftermarket warranty company years back only a mfr. backed warranty is advisable........................ The Black GM dealer http://www.gmoutlet.com indeed has the best GMPP prices anywhere for any GM vehicle. Whats funny is the price difference between a Majorguard plan for my truck $700.........Caddy $2,800 for a 3/36 plan........................geo
  21. I have no problem while its still under warranty............. Its after that scares me !
  22. Well folks..............I may be a N*star problems victim. Last month I noticed the low coolant message on my 03 deville w/45k miles. I filled the res. tank with some Deathcool to the marks and checked for leaks and such. Haven't noticed any excessive white smoke out of the exaust, fogging of the windows, or coolant/AF smell. Because of the nasty weather I have been driving my 4x4 truck but needed to run to Rochester a few times this week to pick up family at the airport. So the luxoboat cruiser was needed..................... Sure enough the low coolant/AF message came on and the res. was bone dry! I refilled it then checked the oil and noted for leaks, smoke, fogging................ As always I note the temp guage. But reading in the middle as usual.............. Good news is my 4yr/50k new car warranty is still in effect. So its time for some Mr. Goodwrench warranty service........................... Bummer.....I was expecting to keep this car for at least another 2 years. But if I am gonna have issues its bye-bye time. I wanted to get a new GMT-900 truck this year................... This is my 1st and only issue I have had with this car.............geo
  23. A lot of these GM rims have a coat of clearcoat over the rim itself for shine and protection................ IMO a coating of car wax keeps them shiny! I have seen sets of the fancy PYO wheels ruined on the full size GM trucks from folks using brillo pads or harsh rubbing compounds used on them............... The days of using the brillo pads etc. on the genuine chrome of yesteryear is long gone. Now its tinfoil over plastic !!!!!!!!
