Question about 2004 Cadillac CTS

1 Answer

Ok i had drop my tranny and i took my car to the cadillac dealership so they can replace the tranny. Ok so i got my car back on wednesday and there was a strange noise coming from the front i only heard it when i backed up and i couldn't figure out what or where it was coming from but knew it was under the hood well the second day since having the car back my brakes go out on me and the noise is increasingly louder every time i go to brake so i park the car and when i lifted the hood smoke comes from underneath. what that strange noise was was the pulley that is near the brake line was sitting on top of the brake line cutting into it and cut the brake line. now i kinda gave you a general picture my question is could putting the transmission into the car caused them to accidentally putt the pulley on the brake line and not notice it? or could putting the transmission in shift the engine and thats why the pulley rubbed up on the brake line causing it to cut it.

Its very possible that they could have accidentally pinned the hose.On your car the motor had to be removed so its highly possible like I said that it accidentally got pinched.But without seeing the position of the motor in reference to the brake hose it would be hard to try to figure out what truly happened.

Last Wednesday I was driving home on the freeway and I noticed that the temperature gage started going up - immediately I pulled over and turned off the car. A man stopped on the side of the road helped me...

Out of the blue temperature increases are usually caused by either a bad water thermostat (sticking closed)

or a bad radiator fan temperature switch.

Either one can be repaired in less than 1 hour.
