What Does Your Cadillac CTS Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Cadillac CTS transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you ignore Cadillac CTS transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your CTS’s not even driveable.

Questions About 2004 Cadillac CTS’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Cadillac's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Cadillac CTS? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my CTS's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Cadillac CTS’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Cadillac. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Can Cadillac CTS transmission fluid leak? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Cadillac CTS, potentially causing transmission problems. A transmission fluid leak may be caused by a damaged transmission pan, faulty transmission cooler lines, worn-out seals, a cracked transmission housing, or an overfilled transmission.
  • Where can I get my  Cadillac CTS transmission fixed? When your CTS transmission is acting up, Firestone Complete Auto Care is here to help. Book an appointment today for transmission system diagnostics and repairs.
  • Is it okay to drive a CTS with a transmission fluid leak? Driving your CTS with a transmission fluid leak is highly discouraged. Transmission fluid is vital to the smooth operation of your transmission system, and a leak can put the entire system at risk. A transmission fluid leak may lead to decreased performance, overheating, and possibly even transmission failure.
