Engine Q&A 2010 Cadillac DTS

  • Why does my DTS’s check engine light come on when I start it? It’s usually normal for your check engine light to turn on upon ignition. It’s just your DTS firing up its circuits. The light should go off shortly. Bring your vehicle in if it doesn't.
  • Why does my Cadillac engine sound different? Unusual noises can signal a problem with your Cadillac DTS engine. Tapping or knocking could mean you need an oil change. A high-pitched whistle could signal an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing may be caused by a loose fan belt, and grinding could be a sign that something is wrong with your brakes — not the engine.
  • What could damage a Cadillac engine? [ordered-list-1-item-3-1]Are you unknowingly damaging your Cadillac DTS engine? Some driving habits are not so great for your engine. These include driving on a near-empty gas tank, revving your engine while the vehicle is in Park, or slamming the gas pedal while the engine is still cold. Help sustain your engine’s performance and efficiency by staying miles away from these bad driving practices.
  • Can I put water in my Cadillac DTS radiator? It’s not recommended you put water in your DTS radiator unless it’s an emergency. Under normal circumstances, use a 50/50 mix of water and coolant or a pre-mixed coolant. But, if you need to keep driving while out of coolant, using water is better than driving with an empty coolant reservoir.
  • What can cause a DTS engine to suddenly stop? There are different reasons your DTS vehicle engine could suddenly stop. You may be looking at a lack of fuel, faulty sensors, issues with the ignition system, engine overheating, electrical problems, or mechanical troubles.
