Question about 2004 Cadillac CTS
You'll need to take it to a shop - Cadillac is notorious for no room to work! You may have a bad motor and or transmission mount and need to have them inspected. If you want to try,bear in mind the following can be DANGEROUS so exercise extreme caution. Open the hood and look closely for a metal and rubber assembly that goes from the motor to the vehicle. There may be 1 on each side ( passenger and driver) and 1 to the rear of the vehicle or more, depending on the motor / transmission size and configuration.Visual inspection rarely shows anything, so you'll need to set the park brake and block the wheels. Have your helper start the vehicle and as you watch the engine closely while standing to the SIDE of the car have your helper shift into reverse with their foot firmly on the brake. Watch how much the engine moves as the transmission engages. Now have your helper push on the gas approximately 1/4 pedal - you'll see the engine rock in 1 direction the more your helper accelerates. Return the car to idle and shift into drive - you'll probably notice the engine lurching in the opposite direction. the difference should be nominal ( no more than an inch or so) . If your engine does not move excessively you'll need to take it to your local shop to have your driveline or cv shafts inspected. If it does move too much, you may want to again take it to the shop as a mount change can be involved and easy to ahve problems.
Hope this helps!
