Known Problems

The 2004-2009 Cadillac Seville XLR may have issues with the EVAP system, a part of your emission control system.

The EVAP canister vent valve or valve solenoid wiring may fail causing illumination of the check engine light, setting code P0446, and problems filling the tank with fuel.

To correct the issue, the EVAP canister vent valve, solenoid, and wiring must be inspected. The most common fix is replacement of the wiring connector or replacement of the vent valve assembly.

A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.

The steering wheel position sensor may fail, resulting in the service stability message being displayed.

You may be able to prevent transmission problems by servicing the transmission and inspecting the fluid every 30,000 miles. If the fluid is dark or burned then the transmission system should be completely flushed.

Extended life coolant may become contaminated and require cooling system service before the recommended 100,000 miles.
