2005 Cadillac DeVille Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Cadillac's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Cadillac DeVille? 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. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your DeVille is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my DeVille transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Cadillac DeVille transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Cadillac's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can my Cadillac DeVille leak transmission fluid? 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.
