Cadillac DeVille Problems

Excessive Engine Oil Consumption

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.

Improper HVAC Temperature and/or Air Delivery Due to Failed Mode Door Actuator

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.

Engine Overheating Due to Leaking Headgasket

Overheating of the engine may cause the cylinder head to expand, severely straining the head bolts and damaging the threads in the engine block. This commonly results in a blown head gasket. Our technicians tell us the engine block threads must be repaired before the cylinder head is reinstalled.

Cadillac DeVille Recalls

Ignition Lock Cylinder Concern

Excess weight on the key ring can cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position without warning, turning off the engine. This defect can also affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Dealers will install two 13mm key rings and key insert into the vehicle's ignition keys to correct this concern.

GM Recalls 1995-1997 Models Due to Fuel Rail and Return Line Leaks

GM has recalled 1995-1997 Cadillac Deville, Eldorado, Seville, and Oldsmobile Aurora vehicles because the fuel rail and fuel system return line may crack and leak fuel. In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel rail and return line.

GM Recalls 2002-2003 Vehicles Due to Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor Failure

GM recalls certain 2002-2003 Cadillac Devillle, Seville, Oldsmobile Aurora, and Pontiac Bonneville vehicles because the fuel tank pressure sensor may fail and cause a fuel leak. In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel tank pressure sensor.

Cadillac DeVille Reviews

I put a Cadillac converter on here but the car is acting like it don't want to moveI put a water pumpthermostat radiatorsome more stuff just cant think right now
think its a wonderful car,yes like any other mode of transportation it will require maintenance. I would say if one doesn't want to do repairs,buy new and trade early. These cars represent a time when this country made great products, the ride the comfort ,the extra horsepower when you need it all within your reach. Personally, I own two Devilles, and wouldn't trade them . I actually enjoy...
gas mi. 22 i,ve spent alot of money on up keep 176000 mi on it it runs great only had the car a month.
