Hi everyone!

I don't even know if I've been missed but I have been absent from the forum for a couple of years. I love this forum but when Cadillac Club Sweden started a Swedish sub-forum I became more and more involved there right to the point when I didn't find the time to be around here anymore. Well let’s just say that I didn't agree with certain individuals on that forum. I felt that I was the only one who contributed there, surrounded by the "HELP. I HAVE A PROBLEM, NEED HELP ASAP" guys. I got bored and suddenly just stopped posting there. At that time I became a parent and was in the middle of my studies to get a bachelor degree in economics so I really didn't feel like I had the time. Now I'm finished. Our family has moved and I'm looking for a job as an engineer, economist or middle manager executive so I've been busy.

I still got my 2002 STS and I have been driving over 100k miles with it since I bought it in 2007

Anyway, it's good to be back!

Thanks!

It's funny how fast the time can fly. As for now I'm really hoping to get a job soon. Going to an interview on monday, keeping my fingers crossed on this one!

Planning on changing the brake pads and the rear calipers soon. Have a slight oil leak also. As the Guru once said to a member: "I hate to brake it to you but your car aint new anymore" No spill on the ground but I can sometimes smell it. Hopefully something simple like the oil filter or a bad o-ring to the oil cooler lines. Besides that it still runs like a champ!

Glad you're back!

I laughed at the guru's quote - so true. Too many people have the (wrong) opinion that a car should never need any maintenance other than filling the tank with gas.

I once bought a used car in California. We sold her car in Boston and moved to L.A. and bought a car there. The car business there is crazy compared to everywhere else I have ever lived, but I won't go into that here.

We bought a two-year old car, and found that the only thing that had *ever* been done to it was to add gas, oil, and water. The coolant was syrupy with rust. The wiper blades had worn to the nubs and ground circular tracks into the glass. The oil... well, words fail me here.

We serviced everything and changed all the belts and hoses and the car suddenly became pretty much what we expected from a two-year-old car, except for the circles ground into the windshield and an oil-burning problem that wasn't quite bad enough to make us think about a ring job. It stayed that way for years, with good care, until we traded it in on a new Pontiac convertible that my wife liked a whole lot better.
