    D3 Cadillac STS Aftermarket Parts!!!!

    Is that an actual Caddy or a riced out civic made up to look like a Caddy...??? Man they do look quite nice, but a little more subtlety would go a VERY long way. Nice job regardless guys, makes me wonder how long it will be before I can pick up an 05 in the $20's. Kale

    It shouldn't be hard if you rip everything out and put all new stuff in, but it would be quite a bit more expensive... I don't know about the security system, but being that your car has been around for almost a decade, I'm sure a qualified shop will have just the thing for you in case there...

    STS or Accord

    Actually, I was just reading through the Car and Driver test results and found that the Accord EX V6 (2006 probably) runs 14 second quarter miles so it may just be a good race...:( There are tons of cars now that run 14s. The times have caught up with our beloved Caddy's... Kale

    98 Cadillac Seville SLS/STS Codes

    Here's a quick tip... If you have a digital camera that shoots video, run the codes then capture it all with your camera. They come and go way too fast and you'll find yourself second guessing the numbers. With the video you can pause and wite down everything without worrying if you missed a...

    sensor lowering question

    Yup, they are the same. It won't actually "slam" via the sensors but it may get lower than you like. Just remember that results vary... Kale

    Drive by caught on tape....

    I did some research because nothing screamed fake besides the fact that it is pretty hard to believe - it turns out that this is supposedly a scene from a movie called "Gang Tapes". At first it was hard to decipher and really IMO can not be decidedly deciphered (:D) based on the video alone...

    what are the symptoms of a bad brake booster?

    IIRC, you are describing exactly what happened when my brake booster failed. I would have brakes for a period of time, then the pedal would slowly go to the floor, eventually requiring maximum pedal effort to stop. I replaced the booster with one off a TBird and my problems went away. It was NOT...

    WOW! new Lincoln 2007 MKS sports sedan, with 315 HP V-8

    So first Lincoln tries to copy BMW and introduces the LS. Now they are shooting for Acura with the MKS??? It is destined for the same fate. I think this car (and SUV) will keep Lincoln in business, but I don't think it will IMPROVE their current position in the marketplace. As a Mark VIII...

    New STS-V

    The STS-V is definitely and awesome car, esp. considering that it is American. The problem is that at $70+ it has to compete with the likes of Benz's outfitted by AMG and Beamers wearing "M" emblems, touting V10s and a full 500HP. Kale

    WOW! new Lincoln 2007 MKS sports sedan, with 315 HP V-8

    Looks nice! But some of you guys will have to swap out those 20s for 18s...LOL! This car should have come out 5 years ago (or more). 300HP doesn't raise too many eyebrows in 2006. Kale

    Tune-Up Time

    I'm right at 95K and looking to replace the spark plugs, air filter and serpentine belt on my 99 STS. Can anyone recommend a specific plug for better performance? What's a good brand or serpentine belt to buy? I already did the fuel filter. Anything else I should look for? Kale

    Turn On Lead - 99STS

    I removed the sub entirely, but you may be able to simply tighten the plastic fastener. I believe it just pushes in an out so you would just have to push it back in if it has rattled loose. Kale

    Turn On Lead - 99STS

    Problem solved! :) Browsing through the service manual, I found a section called RAP - Retained Accessory Power. This is the system which allows accessory power for 10 minutes after the car is shut off. I was able to tap into the rear fuse block to access the RAP relay dedicated to the...

    Turn On Lead - 99STS

    I have a 99 STS w/o Nav and I'm trying to find a suitable wire for turning on my sub amp. I have the schematics and found that I can splice into the power antenna module, but I can not find where this wire is routed in the vehicle. I can get to it in the headliner, and I know I can tap into it...
