To all members and lookie-loos. I am a long time
forum ( Townhall ) member chirping up just about now in this
the Catera talk group. I am the 2 yr. owner of a 1997 Cadillac Catera- factory decked out Sand colour Tan interior
with a wee bit'o rust. It's was purchased in Sept '05 for
the princely sum of $ 6720 USD, emmisions certified and
rare'in to to, and oh yes, oil undercoated. I see there is
quite the dicotamy of opinion concerning this vehicle and I
would have to say, I am one of the more satisfied owners.
I look forward to sharing my experiences with you and infromatively helping in any way. Cheers, " noGM4me "

I checked Rock Auto as you suggested for the crank position sensor and note there are three with wide ranging prices. Would like to know which on you purchased. Thanx Car nut829

My 1997 Cadillac Catera has two problems (1) A flashing " Levelling " sign on the dash panel (2) the car does not want to go faster than 55 mph on the highway. The transmision is not sliping or any thing.
Can any body help?

I, too, have had the "leveling" problem. It stops flashing only after I turn off and restart the car. The transmission DOES slip if I don't warm up the car for 4-6 minutes. We can't locate the transmission stick in order to check it. The car didn't come with an owner's manual. Could anyone tell me where to locate the tansmission stick? Thanking you in advance, I am!

After 10 inline fuses were replaced to attempt to correct overheating issue which caused the radio/cd to cut off, now only the radio works - cd player says it won't initialize - help!

I have a 97 Cadillac Catera and according to the owners manual, I quote
Leveling light comes on steady when the rear load level in your vehicle changes. Don not drive your vehicle when this light is on. The rear of your car is too low and part of the body/rear axle may be damaged when driving over bumpy roads. When light goes out leveling is complete, unquote. I think if your trunk is full and everything is on one side the light will stay on, I had this problem once and that was the reason. The next time is stays on more than the minute when you first start your car, look in your trunk and level the contents, or remove some. I hope this helps out.

Believe it or not but I have found that Ebay has alot of parts for a Catera that are sometimes pretty cheap, also salvage yards the thing about this is some parts do not have warranties.
