Mike,I have been told that the pistons are bad and need replaced. The car is using oil, Most of the time the car runs smooth. Sometimes it sputters, especially if I accelerate going up a hill. If I downshift from Drive to 4th, runs smoother during that time. The engine
light comes on for a few days. Then I might start the car and the light stays off, and could be off for a couple of days, then comes back on. Does this sound like the problem?. If so approximate cost to repair?.
JA: Has your vehicled stalled? Has anyone run a diagnostic test to pull the trouble code?
Customer: No the car has never stalled. A GM dealer's service manager had the test done, but he did not give me the code. That service manger is no longer there.
JA: What is the model/year of your Cadillac?
Customer: 2005 CTS
, 94000 on the car.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am not capable of doing the repairs myself I would have to rely on a dealership or an independent mechanic to fix.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: No, I think that is all of the problems.
