Question about 2003 Cadillac CTS

2 Answers

I have a Cadillac CTS 2003; it just passed the 100,000 mile mark. Each Cadillac service person I have spoken to has told me something completely different about what type of service is needed. What would you recommend and approximately what do you think I should expect to pay? Thank you so much

    I don't understand your answer. You said "I don't think so". To what does this refer? Do you have experience with this this type of vehicle?

Follow the recommendations in the owners manual. The info I saw for the 100K mark said to check plug wires, replace plugs, check the pcv system.

There are maintenance issues well before the 100K mark. I would go ahead and replace the serpentine belt if it hasn't been replaced recently. If the old belt looks ok, you can save it for a spare, use in case of an emergency.
At 100,000 Mls things are starting to get tired and worn, I do not advocate the "fix in a can" solution the only way is to repair or renew, yes that's expensive, but i believe in do it once do it right. The can cure may slow or ease the problem for a short while but they cannot fix the problem and often with oil leaks can l make things worse!

As for the coolant light sensor, you should be able to get a good second hand one, if you disable it, and the car runs low on coolant, you may do a head gasket or worse.

Hi there,

I don't think so as Cadillac service person says, your car needs a normal service if all things are OK... .... the cost is not more than a normal service.

Thanks

How often do i change my spark plugs in a 2008 cts


It is an option to replace at 100,000 miles. Cadillac and most auto makers are using a lot better plugs. I normally recommend plugs when there is a running concern or if the car has over 100,000 miles

My 03 cadiallic cts has 98,000 miles i was wondering, when is it time to change the timiming belt,and spark plugs


Cadillac recommends it be replaced at 100,000 miles.
You should also consider changing the tensioner (1) and idlers (2) at the same time. A kit is available from the dealer and various aftermarket sources that contains all the parts.
I hope this answers your question.
