What Does Your Cadillac DeVille Transmission Do?

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 1989 Cadillac DeVille transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.

Questions About 1989 Cadillac DeVille’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Cadillac tow?   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.
  • Does my DeVille's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1989 DeVille’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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 transmission fluid leak from my Cadillac DeVille? Yes. Cadillac DeVille transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.
  • Where can I get my  Cadillac DeVille transmission fixed? When your DeVille transmission is acting up, Firestone Complete Auto Care is here to help. Book an appointment today for transmission system diagnostics and repairs.
  • Can I still drive my Cadillac DeVille if it has a transmission fluid leak? Driving your DeVille 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.
