SOURCE: I have a Cadillac CTS

I too have the 2004 CTS.
Just today, my dealership checked my transmission fluid level because I have gear noise.

There is NO dipstick!

The car is put up on the hoist with motor running and transmission in neutral.
There is a fill / level check plug located on drivers side of transmission through which the level is checked.

SOURCE: How do you check the coolant level on cadillac cts

if i remember right you can't actually (easily) get the rad cap off. look at the overflow tank, you will see a line on the tank which is the maximum level to fill it. when it is cool check and see where the level is. add antifreeze to this tank when the motor is cold to that level.

SOURCE: how do I replace the tail light bulb on my

ok cadillac for some reason has to be difficult about these things you actually have to take the whole tail light assembly out. . .here is what youre going to need:

1. socket wrench
2. number 10 socket (gm's nut of choice)
3. patience because it is easy to drop the nut be careful

ok so you have to open the trunk then take the plastic that holds the carpet down off. you do this by unscrewing the black screw on pegs (not sure what to call these things). after you do this pull the plastic thing hard because it is being held in place by some pegs other than the ones you have already removed. then remove all the side carpeting depending on which side youre changing. ok after this look directly behind the tail light assembly for 2-3 (i forget how many) bolt like pegs (my new favorite word) these are attached to the plastic tail light assembly. then take the nuts off of these pegs and then you should be able to tug the assembly off. then you do what the others say take out the socket and replace the bulb.

like i said cadillac makes **** hard to do. if you hate this wait til you have to take the whole bumper off to replace the headlight bulbs (might want to invest in some hid lights so you wont ever have to replace them)

good luck

SOURCE: Replace 2005 Cadillac CTS water pump

drain the coolant.remove belt by rotating belt tensioner cllockwise. water pump pulley will require a holding tool to keep it from turning while removing bolts. access to air ratchet can sometimes eliminate the need to hold but be careful cause thats a good way to skin some knuckles. also make installation more difficult to obtain proper torque. after pulley is off just a few water pupm mounting bolts remain. clean and dry gasket surface very well before reinstalling.

Where is dipstick for transmission located on 2007 CTS Cadillac


Tranny fluid. Your owners manual says you should never need to check it, unless you have a leak. I agree with Gene.

Need to add transmission fluid in Cadillac CTS 2008. How do you do it?


My 2009 CTS4 should be the same as your 2008 CTS. There is no dipstick tube to check or fill the transmission. The check plug is in the bottom of the pan. It loos like a drain plug, but it is not. The fill plug is on the passenger side of the transmission, just above the front of the oil pan. It is a plastic and rubber plug that is pulled straight up.

You'll probably be better off having it checked and filled at a dealer or trans shop.

When do I have my transmission oil changed on my 2005 cts cadillac? It has 79,000 miles.


If it has never been changed, I would recommend you get it done now, if you take it to a service shop, nothing has to be removed, the oil changer plugs right into the transmission lines. on the 3rd year, I recommend the ****** filter changed along with fluid.

Where is the transmission stick located on the 2004 CTS


Hello Lillian.
Your CTS does not have a dipstick to check the level.
There is a procedure for checking it but it needs to be done by lifting the car high and level to access a plug on the side of the transmission.
Here is the procedure.

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL CHECKING PROCEDURE

  1. Start the engine and allow the engine to idle until the transmission fluid normal operating temperature has been reached.
  2. Depress the brake pedal and move the shift lever through the gear ranges, pausing a few seconds in each range. Return the shift lever to the PARK range.
  3. Raise the vehicle on a hoist. The vehicle must be level, with the engine running and the shift lever in the PARK range. CAUTION: The engine must be running when the transmission fluid fill plug is removed, or excessive fluid loss will occur. Transmission fluid may be hot. Since the actual fluid level is unknown, stand clear when removing the fill plug. Have a container ready to capture any lost fluid. Do not turn the engine off with the fill plug removed, as you can be injured by hot transmission fluid being expelled out of the oil fill opening.
If you would like further advise on this matter, please ask me here in a comment.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Need to add transmission fluid in Cadillac CTS 2004. How do you do it?


tod34 is correct. The "fill" area of this transmission is located on the transmission itself. It is a fluid leveling plug located low on the main case toward the back of the trans. You must pump the fluid in through that hole. If you are on level ground and the transmission is properly warmed, you should fill the transmission until the fluid level is flush with the bottom of the hole (starts spilling out)
