2010 Cadillac DTS Problems
An automatic transmission fluid leak may develop from the rubber section of a transmission cooler line. In some cases the rubber section of hose can be replaced. In others, the complete cooler line must be replaced to correct this type of leak.
The steering wheel position sensor may fail, resulting in the service stability message being displayed.
The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart.
The water pump and/or the plastic side tanks on the radiator may leak causing a loss of coolant. The engine may overheat due to coolant loss. Continued coolant loss after external leaks have been repaired could indicate a blown head gasket.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
Three vehicle information labels are missing from some vehicles. These labels share tire size and pressure information, vehicle certification standards, and components used in manufacturing the vehicle. Not having these labels installed could lead to a lack of proper education and information about the vehicle, and cause abnormal tire wear and vehicle handling. General Motors has sent the three stickers to all affected vehicle owners. The owners may install the labels on their own, or they may visit a dealership for free installation. This recall began on December 22, 2009. The General Motors campaign number is 09322.
RepairPal Expert Overview:
General Motors is recalling 2010–2011 DTS and Buick Lucerne models with V8 engines due to contact between the starter/alternator cable and the power steering return line. This can result in a worn power steering return line, which can cause a power steering leak, possibly resulting in a loss of power steering. This can lead to an increase in the risk of a crash and/or an engine compartment fire. Dealers will secure or reroute the necessary lines, free of charge.
