Question about 2005 Cadillac CTS
I have a 2005 cadillac cts with 90,oo miles and the transmission is now a litttle clow shifting into second. Is this symptomatic of anything I can easily fix?
I've been having hesitation with shifting for the past 3 years. been in the shop 6 times (its a 2006 CTS with 78,000kms on it).
First they replaced the torque converter. That fixed the symptoms for 6 month. then they replaced the ****** under warranty. next time it was software. next time I'm not sure what they did to fix it. This time they blamed it on timing chains. After being in the shop for 8 weeks, I picked it up today and it worked great, except the check engine light came on, drove it straight back to the dealer. they took it for a test drive and it broke down on the highway. had to be towed back in.
My guess is you have the "stretched" timing chain issue that can occur on the Cadillacs. It might be covered by warranty, or if your SOL like me... not covered under warranty. Right now I'm fighting with GM Canada and the local GM dealer to fix this under warranty since it started under warranty to begin this.

Have the transmission fluid changed/new filter and use a premium synthetic fluid instead of cheap ol generic fluid. Think mobil1 full synthetic for the tranny. If it's never been changed this will make a dramatic difference.
