It really depends if the car was well maintained.. Exchanging all fluids when scheduled - etc.. In most cases - cars are not maintained properly..
If you just got the car & dont know the maint history - 81-k is a time to exchange ALL the fluids.. ALL the trani fluid (not just a pan drop) break fluid, power stearing etc.. This is what keeps things running the way they should & prevents leaking etc..
If maintained well with regular tune-ups etc - you could get over 200-k out of it..
However - that car has allot of whistles & bells which means there is more to go wrong too..

Hope this helps !!
Rate me good ;o)

What is the standard fuel use in Cadillac devill 4.6 north star means in 100m how many gallons gasoline will use?

Gas mileage depends on several factors.
Average for a 2003 model is 17 city and 27 highway.
So if you combine those numbers, you could expect an average of 22 mpg which would be 4.5 gallons in 100 miles.

How many miles do u get for a full tank of gas on a v8

It just depends on your tank size. You probably get about 15 -18 miles per gallon. 13 gallon tank would be around 200 miles. 15 gallon tank around 232 miles.

My alternator is good & my battery still gets drained

How old is the battery? I learned at Sears while working there in the battery department that the average life of car batteries is about 3 years. So, after that, batteries lose a significant amount of their performance CCA or cold cranking amps, and may have to be replaced on a pro rated basis after that period of time, on average.

I put a diehard platinum battery into my 1997 Cadillac Deville Limousine for about $189.99 plus tax and it has a 4 year replacement warranty due to bettery construction.

However, if you get Walmart's best Maxx battery, they have a 3 year replacement policy and they charge about $79.99. I put that into my 1990 Cadillac Deville.

Good luck on resolving the battery drain problem with a good alternator.

Reset oil life after oil change

With the oil life on the screen, press and hold the "return" key, the one with the arrow on it. Same one that resets the average miles per gallon. It's in the lower right of the steering wheel.

Keep holding it. It takes a few seconds, but then the 55% number (or whatever) will turn into "XXX", and sit there.

Some things might start dinging.... the wrench symbol might light up on the dash... I haven't really payed super close attention, but a lot seems to be happening on the dash while this happens. I'm usually just watching the XXX number, waiting for it to be 100...

Don't panic.

As you keep holding that button, eventually the oil life number will become "100%" again... Now you can let go of the button.

And it's reset!

Recommended maintenence for 1999 cadillac such as throtle body, power steering, transmission, coolant, etc.

there is no maint required for the throttle body per say, just clean it if you develope a problem like stalling at idle, same goes for power steering, but a flush of the fluid every 30,000 miles is helpfull to extend life of pump and steering rack, the transmission needs to be given a fluid and filter change at least every 60,000 miles, the filters replaced for fuel and air every 30,000 miles and the spark plugs replaced at 100,000 miles.

2003 Cadillac CTS

If the AC compressor was working full time including when the heat was on in the winter, this would certainly cut short the life span of the compressor. Usually, the compressor won't come on unless climate control is calling for AC. If this was the case, the issue is more likely the climate control itself, either a sensor or the whole unit. Should have been caught when you had it diagnosed in the winter if this was when you had it in the shop. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.
