SOURCE: Can't shift into reverse ( manual transmission )

I have the same problem on my 2005 cts. The shifter fork has two rubber bushings that attach at the transmission that break or give way. I assume they did this for a softer feel and to avoid vibration but it leads to the selector not engaging well when you go the extreme direction of reverse on the shifter as there is too much deflection. I replaced the bushings with washers as spacers and it seems to work as a "McGyver" fix. I do intend to get the parts needed from Cadillac to restore it to factory standards. Hopefully they have the parts. To fix the problem you have to go under the car. To get good access you have to disconnect the exhaust and the driveshaft. I did it without this and just tormented my poor hands but I wasn't willing to do all the other work while in my driveway. You simply take the clip holding the fork shaft onto the transmission selector end off and slide the small shaft out. I also took off the shifter side of the fork to study the thing a bit better. That takes a 13mm and a small allen wrench, 4.5 or 3/16, can't remember. Then replace the bushings or do as I did and stack some washers so as to get rid of the slack between the inside of the fork and the gear selector on the transmission. Assemble and try. If you have as good dexterity and tenacity at your fingertips as I do, you'll curse the day you attempted doing this without taking out all the other stuff. If you don't, take out all the other stuff to make room for your hands. The space is very confined. Good luck.

SOURCE: 2003 Cadillac CTS. Shift linkage makes metallic

Just had the same problem. The problem is that the rubber bushing on the transmission linkage deteriorates and falls off. This causes two problems - shifter is loose and a metallic clunking sound is heard when shifting. It's not the shifter inside the car. It's the linkage underneath the car. You have to buy the bushing (if sold by itself) or the linkage kit. The linkage is on the passenger side of the transmission between transmission and right side exhaust pipe. Ensure engine/exhaust is cold prior to trying to access. Regards.

My Cadillac Cts 2006 won't crank and gear shift won't move out of reverse.


It won't crank because it is in reverse. First remove the linkage at the transmission and put it in park or just see if the transmission shifter will move. If it does, then look to the cable or shifter in the console/column. If the transmission shifter doesn't move, It is an internal transmission problem. Most can be repaired by removing the valve body. Via the transmission oil pan. Some the transmission has to be pulled .

in most vehicles they use a steel wire to connect the turning of the key-ignition with the shifting lever. if this cable is broken or out of adjustment, it could cause a problem like that. just an idea.

Hey Bambi. GM just issued a huge recall in 2006-2014 vehicles. Search GM 2014 recall to see if your car is included. I know the recall had something to do with the ignition.

Why does my 2006 Cadillac CTS power engine down when I press the gas to pass other vehicles or try to excelerate?


Try shifting down to 2nd gear and see what it does. Put top grade full in it with extra cleaner. Check air intake filter and clean sensor. Has the fuel filter been changed ?
If this don't do it , check out the electric computer transmission set.

Should the engine be running when adding coolant to my 2003 cadillac cts


If you just drained it & are refilling,then yes,the engine
should run & warm up until the thermostat opens & you
