SOURCE: My 2004 Cadillac SRX has intermittent pinging or

The pinging noise that you hear is detonation occuring in one or more of the cylinders. The dealer suggested to move to a higher octane inorder to prevent this because the higher the octane the higher the prevention of Detonation.

The Probable cause of the pinging, would be that you refilled with a bad batch of gasoline. Premium should be used in this vehicle no matter what. Due to the clearances of the heads and valves in the motor. And also due to the material used to make the cylinder heads, if severe detonation occures then the valves could be damaged.

SOURCE: rear liscese plate bulbs on 05 cadillac srx

First you have to take out the one and only screw in the rear hatch door - it's where the hand pull down is you use to close the hatch.
Then you have to pop all the plastic clips all the way around the plastic door panel, trying not to pull them out from the frame . If you do pull out the white plastic plugs from the frame you better make certain you take them off the plastic housing and insert them back into their frame holes - or you will never get the housing back on.

Once you have the housing loose disconnect the inside tail gate light wire to remove the whole thing. Then you have to remove 7 to 8 nuts from the back of entire License plate, back up bulb housing using a deep socket to get in there. Work it loose from the rear of the car and it will come out just enough to work on the lights.
This is tricky since the screw mounts don't give you much room to work with.

Once you have the license plate and back up bulb frame loose you will see the two housings for the license plate bulbs on top.

Slide out the license plate bulb lens and twist the bulb connection to remove the bulbs.
Replace both of them - you don't want to do this again in a month when the other one blows.

OPTIONAL:
Once you take out the bulbs you might see that the housing is melted where the bulb wanted to burn through. Drill two small holes one is each end of the housing before I put everything back together to release some of the heat.


Reverse the whole process to put everything back together. It's not easy.
Make sure you insert the cables through the opening for the hatch handle or it will kink and not work properly.

The bulbs come in a two pack of cost $4.95 .

SOURCE: 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

Random multiple misfire P0300, P0302, P0304 on 2006 Kia Rio


A competent mechanic will check all probable causes associated with these DTC codes.
Code P0300: Random-Multiple misfire detected. Probable causes:
1. Vacuum leaks, damaged hoses, or improper routing
2. Fuel contamination
3. Ignition system - Ignition module, coil, spark plugs and wires
4. Fuel system
Code P0302: Cylinder 2 misfire detected. Probable causes:
1. Control unit software in need of updating
2. Faulty PCM or ECM
3. Faulty fuel injector
4. Ignition system
5. Fuel system
Code 0304: Cylinder 4 misfire detected. Probable causes:
1. Control unit software in need of updating
2. Faulty PCM or ECM
3. Faulty fuel injector
4. Ignition system
5. Fuel system

Be sure the invoice enumerates all of these probable causes as having been checked. Also, some of the replacement parts installed earlier may be faulty.

Car turned off, & now wont start


You can't have ANY Exhaust leaks BEFORE the
Converter or you won't get rid of the PO174 or have control
of injector pulse or fuel trim
You have a timing chain -no belt
Better use 5W-20 Full Syn Oil if want the
VVT Cam Actuators to last
All those codes are ignition cylinder misfires
All you have done so far is preventative maintenance,
what some call a tune-up which by the way ended some
25 years ago or more.
You have done nothing to diagnose the codes apparently
& find the cause of the fault codes
You have misfire on both banks no matter a V6 or V8
Easy to figure out,need a repair shop or study those
codes on the internet.
Check for vacuum hose leaks EGR etc
Forget the PO300 & 316 they are of no use to you
Do not use it until resolved as you don't know if you
have a Class A or B misfire that could damage the
converter
O2 Sensors ( front ones) get replaced at 100,000 miles
You need a good battery- the motorcraft are okey & made
by johnson controls, but only last about 4 or 5 years.

My 2005 Cadillac SRX has developed a rattling noise underneath and is now "missing" when it drives. Check engine light just came on but it is due for an oil change.


Check Lights are OBD2 System Malfunctions,
that have been with us for 30 years,nothing to
do with oil.

You most likely have cylinder misfires, that need
to be diagnosed,or one of ten other possibles
