tod34 is correct. The "fill" area of this transmission is located on the transmission itself. It is a fluid leveling plug located low on the main case toward the back of the trans. You must pump the fluid in through that hole. If you are on level ground and the transmission is properly warmed, you should fill the transmission until the fluid level is flush with the bottom of the hole (starts spilling out)

First off..Do you have the High Pressure direct injection 3.6 LLT engine or basic 3.6 Engine ? Yes the upper Plenium has to come off, but you will have to probably pull your wipers off, and the 7mm screws that hold the cowl beauty panel on and then there is enough cleareance to remove the plenium, disconnect throttle body snorkel tube at throttle body, remove 10mm bolt at brkt drivers side of throttlebody (ball stud) if I remember right, then there are 13mm bolts at back besides the obvious ones you can see and carefully lift it up off engine, thenyou can get to rails for the injectors, to bleed off 3.6 low pressure fuel system pull fuel pump fuse in trunk fuse box and start it let it run out of gas, then bleed Schrader valve too on rail, if you have a high pressure direct injection llt engine let me know, will describe procedure to you

Trouble starting only after refueling

I have a '06 CTS with the 2.8 V6. I currently have 69,000 miles on the car. The check engine light came on while I was waiting in traffic with no noticable engine problem. I called on-star for a diganosis of the problem. They informed me that I had a evap. problem. Keep in mind that the ONLY time that I have a problem is after I fuel the car. If I remove the cap without fueling, I have no problem starting the car. I am not topping off the tank when fueling either. I have replaced the gas cap with no success. This one has me confussed!

same problem 06 CTS...you probably hear a ticking noise under the hood, and car will not start after re-fueling- check engine code is like a p0442? which is a leak in the fuel system. you can try buying a new gas cap from cadillac or an ac-delco distributor to start. its only about twenty dollars. disconnect battery for about ten minutes to reset check engine light or find a local shop with an obd-2 scanner to reset light and re-diagnose. If check engine light comes back on with same code replace the evap. purge valve.(about $25) it is located on the passenger side of car on the intake manifold. it has one electrical connector and two hoses connected to it. no tools required to change which is a plus! disconnect battery or find local shop to reset light again. this should take care of the problem!!

how do i replace fuel pump on a 2006 CTS Cadlly

You must remove the fuel tank from the vehicle to get to the fuel tank module. Your vehicle is equipped with two fuel tank modules that are connected by a tube inside the fuel tank. The primary module is the one on the left side and it is the one that contains the fuel pump.

Have you scanned your computer system to verify that there is not a problem with the security system or the fuel pump circuits? Did you actually check for fuel pressure at the fuel rail? I'm only asking because dropping a fuel tank and replacing a fuel tank module is not easy or cheap....A BIG investment if you are not absolutely certain that this will fix your problem.

CTS in dash navigation system

I have a 2006 cadillac cts, it did not come with a navigation system, is there anyway i can install an in-dash system without messing up the the control buttons on my steering wheel?

There is a company called PAC that specializes in modules like you describe - keeping the steering wheel controls functional with an aftermarket radio.

Click HERE to visit their site. You have to choose a compatible manufacturer. Basically - it is turning the steering wheel controls into a "remote" hidden in the dash.

CLICK HERE for the PAC installation guide for the 2006 CTS

For best results and compatibility, look for a shop in your area that carries PAC - it is a common manufacturer in the BIZ, and have them install it.

The simple answer to your question is YES as long as you use the module compatible for the brand of radio you are installing.
