Question about 2005 Cadillac Deville

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Deville and it recently started to shift between gears with some hesitation. Seemed worse when it is cold. I took it to Amacco transmissions and they are telling me that I need the entire transmission rebuilt for $2300..Granted the car has 167k miles but it has never even shifted hard until this little hesitation started. Am I being ripped off?

Yes I think you are. Try Firestone or Midas. Firestone changes out ALL of the fluid and not just 25%. 167K miles may be a lot to some people but it is not to a car taken good care of. Remember Cadillac is top of the line for USA vehicles and has higher tolerances.

Service engine light is flashing and a rough idle


With the service engine light flashing it means there is a catayltic converter damaging misfire happening . With you not knowing about car's it may be hard for you to fix . Have you ever changed spark plugs or plug wires ? Are there any parts stores near you ? If thier is have them check codes . It will tell you which cylinder is misfiring , and they can give you advice on what to do , sell you parts you need . Also there are videos on youtube showing how to test for what mite be causing the misfire . I wouldn't drive it too much , you don't want to mess up the catayltic converter because they are not cheap .

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you replace the automatic transmission fluid. If the fluid is burnt, the car hesitates specially on cold start ups. Once replaced, a smooth ride and shifting will be noticeable.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Different oil brand/blend/formula? Thats a good one. As long as the oil was 5W30 it's not causing your problem. I would find a independent service center that specializes in Subaru's.

Transmission slow to go into first gear unless auto is warmed up


change fluid & filter. no dipstick, sealed tranny. can remove both pans from underneath to access filter.

It is a GM 4L30E trans. used on Isuzu Rodeo and Cadillac Catera. BMW, in their inifinite wisdom, markets it as lifetime fluid. The second biggest bunch of **** advertising that ever was. Heat and friction will wear out ANY fluid!

BTW, it will delay shifting into highest gear when cold. this is normal
