2000 Cadillac Seville SLS ProblemsHeating and AC Temperature and Air Delivery Mode Door Actuators May Fail
One or more heater & AC (HVAC) temperature and/or air delivery mode door actuator may fail, resulting in improper temperature or air delivery. If this occurs, fault code(s) should be stored in the HVAC control module which should assist in diagnoses.
The engine may develop an oil leak 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.
Vehicles equipped with the 4.6L engine may develop excessive oil consumption. Please be advised that under optimum driving conditions, using one quart of oil every 2000 miles is acceptable. This Cadillac standard applies to vehicles with less that 50,000 miles. Our technicians tell us that if you experience excessive oil consumption it may be caused by built up on the piston rings which restricts movement, preventing them from wiping all the oil from the cylinder walls. Oil left behind is then burned during the combustion process. There is a special ring cleaning procedure which can help this situation. The GM service bulletin number is #02-06-01-009C.
2000 Cadillac Seville SLS QuestionsConsidering buying a 2000 BMW 528i (1 answer)
I currently own a 2000 Cadillac Seville SLS. I enjoy the car but I am wanting to move on. I have always loved BMW's and I really like the 528i, but I have seen multiple scary reviews. Is this car worth it?
others say the motor will have to be pulled to get to it
Had car in shop. Top hose clamp was lose on rad. Care was idling at shop 30 minutes no leak. Drove 4 miles home, parked, antifreeze leaked on driveway. Could it be the rad or trans cooler?
