There is a rubber bushing that sits inside the shift linkage that wears out over time. It will not damage the trans if you drive it that way. It is just a little noisy and sounds bad when moving the shift lever.

SOURCE: Burning rubber smell inside car-2003 CTS Cadillac

Diagnosing this will be subject to a process of elimination. It could be the radio, blower motor or any other accessory particularly ones with moving parts; Try switching those off and try to note when this problem occurs and what is on/whatyou are doing. Something is getting hot causing the smell so it will be a situation where the accessory will have to run a while before doing it. It is a possibility that there is an electical curcuit overheating, but less likely. Lets rule out accessories first and give us an update. GL

SOURCE: Can't shift into reverse ( manual transmission )

I have the same problem on my 2005 cts. The shifter fork has two rubber bushings that attach at the transmission that break or give way. I assume they did this for a softer feel and to avoid vibration but it leads to the selector not engaging well when you go the extreme direction of reverse on the shifter as there is too much deflection. I replaced the bushings with washers as spacers and it seems to work as a "McGyver" fix. I do intend to get the parts needed from Cadillac to restore it to factory standards. Hopefully they have the parts. To fix the problem you have to go under the car. To get good access you have to disconnect the exhaust and the driveshaft. I did it without this and just tormented my poor hands but I wasn't willing to do all the other work while in my driveway. You simply take the clip holding the fork shaft onto the transmission selector end off and slide the small shaft out. I also took off the shifter side of the fork to study the thing a bit better. That takes a 13mm and a small allen wrench, 4.5 or 3/16, can't remember. Then replace the bushings or do as I did and stack some washers so as to get rid of the slack between the inside of the fork and the gear selector on the transmission. Assemble and try. If you have as good dexterity and tenacity at your fingertips as I do, you'll curse the day you attempted doing this without taking out all the other stuff. If you don't, take out all the other stuff to make room for your hands. The space is very confined. Good luck.

SOURCE: Has no reverse. Will go

Your transmission is bad. You need to replace it soon if you are still driving it. At any moment you may lose forward and only have reverse (trust me it happened to me and I was dumb enough to drive it seven blocks back home in reverse).

sounds like your brake system has no hydraulic pressure which means it wont engage the lockout controls on the shifter find the hydraulic leak. repair, fill, bleed, braking system. then it should change gears and start.

My 2003 cadillac cts automatic transmission will not change gears pulls off slowly but will reach high speed


please do not have your transmission flushed , have someone take the oil pan off and replace the filter as well and what ever trans oil you take out replace it as well . no automotive repair shop will warrenty your trans if it should suddenly stop working , but just for your satisfaction ask the transmission repair shop who flushs trans if they guarantee it and have them put it in writing . ive never understood why flush dirty oil and leave the dirty filter in the trans , it collected all dirt and metal wear which is what is causing it to plug up causing it to restrict the oil flow

2003 CTS Automatic when i change gears from drive to park or park to drive i hear a clanking noise when i change the gears. If someone is standing there when you pull up and you put the car in park......


I had the same noise on my wife`s 03 cts. It was the the rubber bushing on the shifting arm from the shift lever to the trans. The arm was 250.00 plus I installed myself. Very easy to get to. Bad design should not have went bad.

Slight grinding noise in 3rd gear pops out now wont engage ANY gear clutch feels normal shifter feels normal , 190,000 miles was about to need cluch still the original


your teansmission is going to be overhauled. it sounds like the synchros are going bad. the shifter has forks that move the gears. sometimes the forks wear out and it can cause the gears to wear out because the gears are not going into like they are suppose to. leave comment..

check to see if your brake lights work if not then check fuses first and if fuses are good then change brake switch. if the light do work you will need to change the solenoid in the shifter housing.
