Question about 2004 Cadillac CTS
The car made a squeaking noise, so the dealer replaced the left lower control arm. The noise has returned after 20,000 miles (total car miles is only 48,000). Could the problem be the same control arm or maybe a different control arm?

SOURCE: cadillac 2004 cts, wont start
i had a 2003 ctc that did the same thing, it wouldn't start or would make a clicking sound and about 1 mth after the problem started aND mechanics could not find a problem my car caught on fire and burned completely from something under the right side of the hood. i had just parked the car and got out, it happened really fast. the fire chief said the cause was unknown????

Did you also check the air filter? The Cadillac CTS is very finicky about the differential pressure across the air filter. Checking the air filter often causes the hose between the air filter box and the intake to come loose or start to leak. This will cause the car to run rough or die immediately after starting.

Testimonial: "THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! I was ready to get a tow truck to take to the dealer. How something so simple! THANK YOU!!"
My 2003 CTS would not start on the first, second or third try after filling the gas tank. Finally after several months of this occuring every two weeks a check engine light came on. It was the evac purge valve. Tom

Actually no you don't. Crank your steering wheel all the way to the right so yo have the maxumum clearance for your hands and arms in the front of the wheel well. Remove the plastic clips that hold the wheel well splash guard and pull it back enough to allow access to the interior of your bumper.
Replace bulbs as needed.
Yes, a jack is nice and makes it a touch easier to access, but I did this in an AutoZone parking lot during a cross country road trip.
