#6573 of 6595 CTS Compression problem
Dec 26, 2008 (7:30 pm)
I have a 2005 CTS I bought it used with 62000 miles on it. I bought it in August in September I had to have the rear end replaced. GM Good willed me the parts but I had to pay labor.
My hubby took me to the doctor and listened to the radio, when I came out the car would not start. We had to get a jump. Another time my hubby turned the car off and tried to start it 10 mins later and it would not. We got another jump and it started right up. We thought we needed a battery. We purchased the battery and installed it and now the car will crank but not start. I had it towed to Dealer and they called and said that only one of the six cylinders had the right compression.
I have never let my oil get low. The car didnt smoke. There wasnt any forwarning before now. Has anyone had a problem like this or any info that might help

Whom did you buy the car from, a private party, a Cadillac dealer or an independent used car lot? Did you get a guaranttee?
You may never let the oil get low but who knows what the previous owner did with the car. What did the dealer say needed to be done to get the car back in running condition?

Have you considered having your spark plugs checked/replaced. They could be fouled up and not giving a full spark. Or, the ignition coils that power them could be bad... have them checked out.

Under #2-I have recently noticed signs of leakage on both sides of the headliner on the support column for the roof, between the front and rear doors. It's been inter-mittant. I am wondering if you have any idea the source for these leaks?
#6577 of 6595 09 CTS V in the NY winter
Sep 08, 2009 (8:11 am)
I have an 09 CTS V and I'm starting to think about whether I want to put winter wheels and snows on it. I don't drive it much anyway, and I won't be putting it up.
Anybody have any suggestions?

I also have a CTS-V & in NY.
I just bought 4 wheels $199 ea.
Plus 4 snows "Blizak" $150.00 ea.
Plus 4 tire sensors $36 ea.
$1600 is small price to pay for safety!

I had the same problem on a 5 hour trip. I have no idea what happend but it did it 5 times. The only thing I know is the tires on my 03 45k miles were only abouit 2lbs under pressure- about 28 to 28.5. Only did on that trip.

Hey barry, when you got the snows did you duplicate the size difference from front to back?

Hey Barry, my dealer tells me they have checked all aroung and there is no manufacturer makes snows in the two different size config that the V uses.
Did you get one size for all 4 tires?
