look for a vacuum leak, if you have a check engine light it will probably point to the Idle Air Control, or possible the throttle position sensor.

I have a leak in the transfer case, just had the shop replace so seals in the engine and now they say transfer case is leaking shouldn't that have been checked then?


the engine and transfer case are to totally different monsters your transfer case controls the four wheel drive if your engine was leaking oil and they replaced some seals most likely they seen grease and oil on the transfer case and assumed it was leaking from the leaking engine that is directly above it even if you dont use the four wheel drive I would still sugest getting that fixed because the axles still turn inside there and you dont want those bearings drying up and going bad

Are the Northstar V8 Engines notorius for breaking down? I have a 2004 Cad SRX and the deal is trying to make us take the extended warranty and we are not sure if we need to.


The northstar engine is great until it blowns a head gasket and starts leaking oil and water. If you have one you should start a class action lawsuit, because they have had enormous numbers of problems with that engine. Most problems start about 90k miles. I am amazed that Cadillac can get away with it (they are still producing the northstar engine).

Where is oil drain plug on 2005 V8 SRX caddilac


crawl under the car with a drain contaner and a cresent wrench. Under the engine is the oil pan. The drain plug is located on the bottom end or slightly above on the side. It may be covered in dirt so scrap around. It has to be there. No other place for the oil to come out. It is possable it is a plug type with a large allen wrench hole or a squar hole that a ratchet will fit in to but most of them it is a bolt type. Don't forget to change the oil filter when changing oil. Let me know if this helps, The Raz

Bad oil leak driver side front fender


There is an adapter for the oil filter with 2 lines coming out of it above the drive shaft from the transfer case to the front differential. The O ring on these will go sometimes causing loss of oil. Also check the 2 lines for leaks and cracks.
