SOURCE: How do you check the coolant level on cadillac cts

if i remember right you can't actually (easily) get the rad cap off. look at the overflow tank, you will see a line on the tank which is the maximum level to fill it. when it is cool check and see where the level is. add antifreeze to this tank when the motor is cold to that level.

SOURCE: how do I replace the tail light bulb on my

ok cadillac for some reason has to be difficult about these things you actually have to take the whole tail light assembly out. . .here is what youre going to need:

1. socket wrench
2. number 10 socket (gm's nut of choice)
3. patience because it is easy to drop the nut be careful

ok so you have to open the trunk then take the plastic that holds the carpet down off. you do this by unscrewing the black screw on pegs (not sure what to call these things). after you do this pull the plastic thing hard because it is being held in place by some pegs other than the ones you have already removed. then remove all the side carpeting depending on which side youre changing. ok after this look directly behind the tail light assembly for 2-3 (i forget how many) bolt like pegs (my new favorite word) these are attached to the plastic tail light assembly. then take the nuts off of these pegs and then you should be able to tug the assembly off. then you do what the others say take out the socket and replace the bulb.

like i said cadillac makes **** hard to do. if you hate this wait til you have to take the whole bumper off to replace the headlight bulbs (might want to invest in some hid lights so you wont ever have to replace them)

good luck

SOURCE: Replace 2005 Cadillac CTS water pump

drain the coolant.remove belt by rotating belt tensioner cllockwise. water pump pulley will require a holding tool to keep it from turning while removing bolts. access to air ratchet can sometimes eliminate the need to hold but be careful cause thats a good way to skin some knuckles. also make installation more difficult to obtain proper torque. after pulley is off just a few water pupm mounting bolts remain. clean and dry gasket surface very well before reinstalling.

2005 cadillac cts base water pump replaced by unauthorized dealer. Now "check coolant light is coming on again" Any thoughts on this matter


If there is no indication of overheating, the check coolant light is probably triggered by a sensor indicating low coolant level. It's also possible that there is air trapped in the cooling system from when the water pump was replaced. Trapped air could cause the sensor to throw the trouble light. Bleed the air from the cooling system and see if the light goes out. You may have to clear the light after bleeding the system.

My 2005 cadillac cts leaks coolant when idling for more than a few minutes after it is warm.


Try to add the recommended coolant sealant from the dealer. If this doesn't work then mechanical repair will be required.

For instance, I have a 1997 Cadillac Deville Limousine that I acquired, and it was leaking antifreeze through the o-ring of the water pump. Replacing the water pump was indicated and did so. But, after that the head gasket was leaking as indicated by a miss and fog coming out of the tailpipe. I repaired that problem by adding a $30 can of Bar's Leaks Head Gasket Repair, the kind that doesn't require draining the coolant system. That did the trick, and haven't had a problem since (for 3 months now).

Where is your coolant leaking from? Is the system within normal operating temperature?
