2011 Cadillac CTS Engine Q&A

  • Why does the check engine light in my CTS turn on when I start my car? It’s usually normal for your check engine light to turn on upon ignition. This is just your CTS testing its circuits. The dash light shouldn't stay on. If it does, you might want to bring your vehicle in for service.
  • Are Cadillac CTS engine noises bad? Strange under-the-hood noises can point to problems within your Cadillac CTS engine. Tapping or knocking could mean you need an oil change. Whistling sounds could mean you have an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing can indicate a loose fan belt, and grinding might be coming from the brakes, not the engine.
  • What could damage a Cadillac engine? [ordered-list-1-item-3-1]Are you unknowingly damaging your Cadillac CTS engine? Certain driving habits can damage your engine and should be avoided. These habits include 'running on fumes,' revving your engine while the vehicle is in Park, or accelerating too quickly, too soon. Help sustain your engine’s performance and efficiency by staying miles away from these bad driving practices.
  • Can I add water to my Cadillac CTS radiator? An emergency is the only time you should consider putting water in your radiator. Outside of that, it’s recommended you use a pre-mixed coolant or a 50/50 blend of water and coolant.
