2001 Cadillac DeVille Problems

Miscellaneous -- Verified

One or more of the power window regulators (one in each door) may fail causing the window to fall into the door and not roll up.

Engine -- Verified

The engine may develop oil leaks from the lower crankcase portion of the engine block. Our technicians tell us that the engine must be removed from the vehicle to properly repair this oil leak.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

One or more heater & AC (HVAC) air delivery and/or temperature mode door actuator may fail. This can result in incorrect air delivery or temperature. If this occurs, fault code(s) stored in the HVAC control module should be available to assist with diagnoses.

Drive Train -- Verified

The torque converter clutch (TTC) may stop working due to an internal transmission failure. The Check Engine Light will illuminate if this occurs. Our technicians tell us the transmission will require dis-assembly to correct this concern.

Engine -- Verified

The crankshaft position sensor may fail causing the engine to stall intermittently, the Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate.

2001 Cadillac DeVille Recalls (Recent)

Body, Interior & Misc., May 29, 2001

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Cadillac has recalled 2000-2001 DeVille vehicles because the seat belt buckles may require too much effort to release. This may delay exiting the vehicle in the event of a crash. Dealers will inspect the belts, modify latch plates, and replace the affected retractor if necessary. Dealers will also add "snap on" latch clips to ensure proper insertion of the buckles.

2001 Cadillac DeVille Reviews

I have only 77000 miles on my 2001 Deville, currently having multiple problems with power steering, rack and pinion, hoses and pumps, have installed 4 pumps, with another one due to be installed with a separate cooler, on return line. Have had multiple problemns ever since I purchased it new in 2000. Had to replace both head gaskets at 60000 miles, plus it uses 4 quarts of oil between changes ever since new! I could list many opages for the problems that have occurred through the years! Had to replace roof at 55000 mioles because of rusted hole in it!

purchase the 01 cadillac I think 2years ago,used 110,00mile.put back brakes on,water pump and was told before purchase has a small oil leak(quart a week)front brakes,rotaries,starter.factory subwoofer cracked and blown,trunk and gas tank cover fuse blown,now see antifreeze on ground under car,engine light on 2 codes pulled for transmission.i got flushed,screened cleaned,new transmission fluid(changes gear fine)did not follow recommendation from book of maintenance so have to reset to turn off check engine light(hopefully)now it states flush radiator and change spark plugs(got to do it)before it get worst.Have driven on highway with no major problems,since I had it,but at 150,000 repairs are coming up.Parts are not bad but the labor is major price.Won't complain,drives like a boat when taken care of.

Hey cadillac owners gues what i bought one of these lacs they call it with 84,000 miles on it.

MY 2001 CADILLAC DEVILLE HAS BEEN RUNNING HOT , THE RADIATOR IS NEW I YR OLD I REPLACED THE WATERPUMP, THERMOSTAT, AND RAD CAP YESTERDAY. STILL RAN HOT, COOLANT SOME LOW HAD A HARD TIME GETTING AIR OUT OF SYSTEM AND ENOUGH COOLANT IN TO KEEP AT NORMAL TEMP. BUT DID. I NOTICED A SMALL LEAK LOOKS LIKE BETWEEN MOTOR AND HEATER CORE. DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING ELSE I COULD CHECK. I NEED A DIAGRAM OF COOLING SYSTEM SHOWING ALL HOSES.

Took the car into dealership for preventative maintenance....just
wanted the radiator to be flushed/replace thermostat and gasket.
Dealership performed a diagnostic test...I recieved the PHONECALL.
they told me that I need to replace the coolant tank because the
pressure is low,I asked well,wouldn't a complete radiator flush
maybe a new thermostat would make the coolant tank hold the presure?Actually,what the heck is the coolant tank(thought it was
the plastic resevoir tank)then I was told the crossover gaskets need to be replaced.Frist of all,there is no oil or coolant leaks
inside engine or on the garage floor.The low coolant light came on
once,that's why I brought it in...the price of the parts,I can deal
with that,but the labor is what drives up the cost.Have you ever heard of the frist problem,low coolant tank...needs to be replaced
What happens if I just have the car flushed,I don't drive it in the
winter.
