Best bet is to consult your owners' manual, however, there is one thing to expect to come up soon that won't be mentioned there. Delco alternators usually croak at about 62-65,000 miles like clockwork. Be prepared for it.

When do I have my transmission oil changed on my 2005 cts cadillac? It has 79,000 miles.

If it has never been changed, I would recommend you get it done now, if you take it to a service shop, nothing has to be removed, the oil changer plugs right into the transmission lines. on the 3rd year, I recommend the ****** filter changed along with fluid.

Have 65000 miles what has to be done to keep up my motor

Your best longevity check is to set up and maintain a consistent oil and filter replacement schedule...Depending on your planned driving habits...your owners manual should recommend you change these every 5000-7500 miles or every 3 months whichever occurs first. Oil products have inproved for many years. The synthetic oil blends are the best for performance and mileage...most exceed your Cadillac specs...Mobil 1, and Castrol full synthetic are by preferences...No special tune-up or other maintenance should be needed at this for serpentine belt...100,000 miles...plugs and plug wires...100,000 miles...suspension parts vary between 75K to 100K before replacement...Hope this helps.

When my maintenance light came on awhile ago, it was able to be reset and then turned off, when the oil life was still 10%, then it went down to 5% then now about 300 mile past the oil life is up.. and the...

When was the last time you had a tune up? That would include oil and air filter, spark plugs and etc. Also, you may need to have your timing belt replace. You should check your owner's manual for routine scheduled maintenance.

I'm interested in purchasing a 2007 cts 3.6 liter wondering if mainteneance is a big problem like when do you change spark plugs and oil changes i only drive about 12000km a year thank you josh

i would have a tune up done when you buy the car although most shops will tune them up before selling make sure to ask about that. oil you usually change every 3,000 miles or 6 months witch ever comes first.

The scheduled maintenance light has turned on. What do I need checked/replaced?

For the above head computer display, press the STEP button until you see the screen indicating that there's 0 miles remaining for scheduled maintenance. Then press and hold the reset button until that value returns to it's default state. This alarm is simply a mileage count down alarm to remind you of oil changes, air filter changes, etc. Resetting it will clear the alarm.

Can i do a tune up or is there extra precautions i have to take in doin so?

Hello- Basic maintenance on your CL consists of either normal or scheduled. Normal is air filter/oil/fluids/plugs/brakes/tires, etc. Scheduled service is 90/180/270k miles---- Timing belt/water pump/tensioner/thermostat/coolant/belts/trans oil/brake fluid. Parts for 90k are about 300$.- Buy timing belt/water pump/tensioner from Acura. Use only NGK plugs. Let me know if this info helps- have more if you need it.- Thanks- ED

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.
