  • I just picked up a 97 with 85,000 miles. I can't get the interior lights to come on. They worked the first day but now nothing. Any solutions? I don't have the owners manual.

    Well hello my name is calicago im a retired mechanic of 20 years never relly got into cateras untill I owned one a real fun car to drive I found that factory direct helps to get those hard to get parts expensive sometimes but the reguler joe will go to the dealer and sometimes end up paying more. it's more fun to do it yourslef and the modifecations like cool air box fairing kits etc,etc,etc im learning as I go . good to meet you :)

    on the side of the pan kinda looks like a smashed corner or flat,,its added there and once it spills out it is full

    actually it's not fill there the pressure lines to the trans cooler are tap and is filter and refilled that way and if you try to do it that way the toruqe converterwill not get the proper amount and the trans will start sliping and you will get high revs and brun more gas and brun the trans :surprise:

    kkdallas; I have a 1999 cadilac catara 4 door sudan and my gas cap went bad. They put on a new one but it was a universal one and IT will not work on my car. I went to the dealer here and they said they do not even have it on their list of parts any more. So I had them call the manuf. and they were told that they quit making cataras in 2001 and they no longer carry parts for them that I would just have to find some were that would still have one in stock. I can't find any one who has it! PLEASE HELP ME FIND THE RIGHT GAS CAP FOR MY CAR!!! thank you kkd

    Recently purchased one from local dealer in Phoenix..long time large operation with huge parts inventory. If no luck try Rock Auto. There are several Catera parts listings on the internet. Go to Cadillac parts and surf. carnut829
