It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
Some vehicles have a power steering hose that was not made to specification and may rupture under extreme steering conditions. If this were to happen, power steering assist would be lost and steering effort would increase. On vehicles equipped with hydro-boost brakes, braking effort would also increase. If power steering fluid were to spray on hot engine parts, an engine compartment fire could also occur. Dealers will inspect the power steering hose(s) for the two suspect date codes and replace them if needed. The recall began October 14, 2005. The GM recall number is 05086.

2006 Cadillac Escalade Reviews
I just purchase this 2006 Cadillac Escalade one month agao. I am not happy this the steering. I took it to the shop and asked the mechanic to look at the front end thinking it might be the steering box, tie rod end,ball joint, something such as that, because the vehicle wants to wonder off the road or into the traffic. I have to fight it to get it to stay in the middle of the road and don't even think about trying to pass anyone, that is scary. The first mechanic said everything looks good he could not find anything wrong and everything was tight. After a short debate he suggested to get a second mechanic to look at it. Then that mechanic said I had a tire he thought might be cupping, he found I had a cracked brake pad, and my rotors was below spec. so I purchase new rotors and brake pads.Plus a front alignment rotated tires.Still did not fix the problem. I am wondering if the size tires I have on this vehicle might be the problem. Has anyone had the problem? I have 305/50R20 on this vehicle. I love them, but do I need to go smaller or narrower? Please help? I am hoping this is not a money pit.
This is my second Escalade. I absolutely love these cars. Feel luxurious,safe,powerful and yet nimble with a fantastic turning radius.
