You will need a service manual at the least OR take your chances with a non GM engine rebuilder etc.

SOURCE: I bought a used 2007


If you have check engine light ON in this model, i would advise you to seek a dealer ASAP. as there could be many reasons. He would need to diagnose and scan the car. On the basis of that, he could tell the exact diagnosis. However, as you want more details, so below is the most probable cause ( again you need to get the car scanned ) :-

Subject: LP1, LY7 MIL/DTCs P0008, P0009, P0016, P0017, P0018 or P0019 (Replace Primary Drive and Both Secondary Drive Timing Chains) Models: 2007 Buick LaCrosse/Allure 2007 Cadillac CTS, SRX, STS with 2.8L HFV6 or 3.6L HFV6 Engine (VINs T, 7 -- RPOs LP1, LY7)
Attention: The bulletin does not apply for 2008 model year 2.8L HFV6 or 3.6L HFV6 Engines. This bulletin is being revised to include additional information on model years for the third design roller-type chain, add an Attention statement that this bulletin does not apply to the 2008 model year and update the Parts Information. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 07-06-01-013A (Section 06 -- Engine/Propulsion System).
Some customers may comment on the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) being illuminated. Technicians may find the following Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) stored:
DTC P0008 : Engine Position System Performance Bank 1 • DTC P0009 : Engine Position System Performance Bank 2 • DTC P0016 : Crankshaft Position (CKP) - Intake Camshaft Position (CMP) Correlation Bank 1 • DTC P0017: Crankshaft Position (CKP) - Exhaust Camshaft Position (CMP) Correlation Bank 1 • DTC P0018 : Crankshaft Position (CKP) - Intake Camshaft Position (CMP) Correlation Bank 2 • DTC P0019 : Crankshaft Position (CKP) - Exhaust Camshaft Position (CMP) Correlation Bank 2 This condition may be caused by stretched primary drive and both secondary drive timing chains.
Refer to SI for the follow diagnostic information if only one of the following DTCs are set:
• DTC P0008 • DTC P0009 • DTC P0016 • DTC P0017 • DTC P0018 • DTC P0019If there are more than one of the above mention DTCs set, inspect for stretched timing chains. Refer to Camshaft Timing Drive Components Cleaning and Inspection (Fourth Design) in SI.

It may take several thousand miles/kilometers of use before the timing chains begin to stretch. Inspect both the primary drive and both secondary drive timing chains for the following:
• Binding links • Loose links • Loose pinsIf any of the chains are stretched, replace the primary drive and both secondary drive timing chains only. DO NOT replace any of the other timing chain component parts.
Important: When ordering the timing chains, please be sure to also order all appropriate gaskets and seals needed to perform the repair properly

Part Number
Timing Chain, Primary
Timing Chain, Secondary
For vehicles repaired under warranty, use:
Labor Operation
Labor Time
Chain, Camshaft Timing -- Replace
Use Published Labor Operation Time

If the oil is not leaking from the engine ,it is being burned by the engine.This is common in a lot of the Cadillacs.most of the time the piston rings are stuck with carbon build up & cleaning the upper combustion with top engine cleaner will take care of it.
There are no recalls on timing chain stretch or camshafts for this vehicle at this time.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

SOURCE: I can not find the oil pan plug on my srx 2006

it is on the passenger side of the pan, if you cannot find it, you are probably looking at the trans pan, the oil pan will not look like a normal pan, it will be square and aluminum with all kinds of diamond looking deep etches in it.

SOURCE: Replacing front turn signal bulb on 2006 Cadillac SRX

wow i feel sorry for you because Cadillac designed this bulb to be a don't get to bulb but OK here's what you do take the bottom cover off or skid plastic panel under neath the front end theirs little plastic clips holding it on just get come dikes and don't cut them but just use it to help pull them out. after you get that off use a flash light and locate your light housing you should see two screws holding the house in i think those screws are 8mm i cant remember remove those two screws and be careful the metal from the bumper cuts you pull the light housing out and remove all the screws around the housing and open the housing up replace the bulb and make sure your contact to the bulbs clean and then reassemble the way you took apart. if you cant get it well then best bet is take it somewhere i know Cadillac charges an arm and a leg so you can go somewhere else.

Need advice on getting a tune up for my 2008 Nissan Armada. I have over 107K miles and was wondering if it would be better to go to the dealership vs. local certified mechanic?

Please be more specific here a tune up means stripping and modifying the engine to increase power output ,If you mean a service on the entire vehicle as per the book so to speak then a local recomended mechanic is your better bet ask around to see if you can be pointed in the right direction here.THEIR ARE A LOT OF UNTRAINED COWBOYS IN THE MOTOR GAME iam afraid to say and some of the worst employers of these are the main dealers ,remember the old saying by confucious ,"IF YOU ONLY PAY PEANUTS THEN ONLY EXPECT TO EMPLOY MONKEYS" having been in the motor game 45yrs i have meet many and a few dedicated tradesman but very few work for dealers

Turn signals quit working. Sometimes they do. Checked the switch. Ok. The blinkers don't work.

the year you have Cadillac had a problem with the soldered on the bulbs contacts. they would get very hot and melt down far enough were no contact was made. All you can do is to replace the bulb with a new style bulb recommended by your LOCAL Cadillac dealerships parts department

No programming required. I'd try your local salvage yard. A new one from the dealer would be VERY expensive. BUT......... before you start replacing your computer, I would suggest getting a "second opinion". Sometimes mechanics are quick to say "It's the computer..". I had a GM Used Car Dealership and I don't think we EVER replaced a computer on a Caddy... Good Luck.

I have a 2000 tahoe with a rebuilt trans and 109k on the motor should I replace the motor or just do the standard tune up plugs wires etc....

If it ain't broke, don't fix it, just tune up. If it's consuming oil, whether it be leaking oil through worn or cracked gaskets and seals or burning oil by going past the worn piston rings and being burned in the combustion chamber then you should replace the worn out gaskets or seals, If it's burning oil, rebuilding the engine or buying a crate motor from the Chevy dealership is an option. There are other places that also sell rebuilt engines, check around for the best price and warranty. If after you do the tune-up it still runs rough at idle take to a local garage and have them do a compression test to see if the engine is exessively worn or some other internal damage is present. You should be able to get at least 200,000 miles Or More out of a V-8 being that new. That Is If It Has Been Taken Care Of And Serviced Regularly! Hope this helps.
