SOURCE: Oil disappearing with no visible leaks and engine not using oil.

Check out this thread and take your Caddy for a couple of Wide Open Throttle runs on the Interstate. Clears out the carbon buildup on the rings that is causing oil blowby.

SOURCE: theft system locked

To get the key out; look under the steering wheel for a plastic flat head screw. untwist it and then push the spring in and your key will be free. Then, go to your fuse box and remove the main fuses and you will hear the doors unlock when the system reset itself. Plug them back in and start your car. This just happened to me... seems the only things that were working were the navigation screen, headlights, fog lights, and reading light on the inside. Dash board was all dark except the engine light.

Turn on the headlights and turn the key to start if the headlights go out the battery is dead and needs to be repaired if they do not go out then you may have a starter that is locked up or a bad solenoid on the starter.

Key stuck in ignition how to get out 2007 cadilac dts

If your battery is dead, the key will stay in. Try giving it a jump. Also check to see if the steering wheel is locked. If it is, try turning the steering wheel somewhat vigerously whilst trying to remove the key. Short of that, it's a common problem with those year GM vehicles. Their ignition switches suck badly

Key locked in ignition 06 DTS and electonics dead

It could be a bad ignition key assembly. The key assembly has a unit attached to it to read the Security code in the key and sometimes when these start to go bad they overheat bad. Go have it checked out by your mechanic.

Make sure your steering wheel isn't locked. Sometimes a key won't turn until you jiggle the wheel while trying to turn the key.

Vehicle will not start at times

Yes that is possible, excessive engine movement from bad/broken mounts put added pulling load on the wiring harness to the engine, it can pull connectors loose and break wiring inside of its insulator, bend a piece of wire over and over and it breaks, the same applies here.
