Northstar engine problems

I have a 2007 Cadillac dts with 82,000 miles. When driving at highway speed, I let off the gas pedal and coast for short distance. when trying to resume speed it will not excelerate. I have to stop put it into neutral, rev the engine, and it will go for several miles before it fails again.

SOURCE: check engine light

The gasket or large o-ring on the under side of the cap might be warn not keeping a tight seal. replace gasket or o-ring, or get a new cap, and see if that cures it.

SOURCE: 2001 Mitsubishi Galant Transmission problem?

Could be a few things:

  1. Low on auto transmission fluid; this would cause you to lose a few of the forward gears (reverse is used less often so its the last gear to go Start the car and add fluid to the specified markings on the Auto Transmission dipstick
  2. Bad auto transmission fluid; Check the fluid, if its brown and gives off a burning smell, it needs changing along with the filter
  3. Bad transmisssion; if neither of the above are true, then it sounds like the clutches have burned out on the transmission or the transmission itself is bad; if 1 or 2 hasn't solved your issue the car needs to be diagnosed at a reputable transmission shop; Make sure they lay out all of your options and if you decide to have a major transmission repair done, the Kelly Blue Book value on a similar car similarlly equipted in exellent condition is about $6,800 retail
I hope this leads you in the right direction. Don't be afraid to post back with any questions. Best of luck.

When i push the gas pedal on mhy 2004 cadillac cts it feels spongy and wont go


Your dts uses drive by wire. The gas pedal is actually an electrical switch connected to the engine computer which then actuate a throttle body motor which causes the car to speed up or slow down. If you mean the car won't acceleration then the throttle actuator is probably going out, this is common and you replace the throttle body assembly as the actuator is sealed onto it. Had the same problem with my 04 srx (which is mechanically the same as a cts). If you have a check engine light on (and you should) get the codes read first as there are a few other problems that can cause throttle problems, however they are less likely the cause.

I drive a 2006 dts which i've had for 1 year. A week after I had the car the temperature gauge went to red when I was in traffic. I took it to cadillac, they replaced the engine,radiator and hoses


Temp is going up, well that doesn't mean anything unless it actually overheats, in traffic it can reach 240 F and present no danger of engine damage. If this is not the case DO NOT DRIVE THIS UNTIL THE PROBLEM IS FOUND AND REPAIRED UNLESS YOU WANT TO BUY ANOTHER ENGINE JOB.
