1997 Cadillac DeVille Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Cadillac's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Cadillac tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your DeVille’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my DeVille transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1997 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Cadillac DeVille? Yes, your Cadillac DeVille can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your DeVille ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues. Common causes of transmission fluid leaks include worn seals, a damaged transmission housing, a loose or cracked transmission pan, an overfilled transmission, or faulty transmission lines.

A transmission fluid leak may lead to decreased performance, overheating, and possibly even transmission failure.
