Engine oil is the lifeblood of the engine. The oil resides in the oil pan, which is under the car attached to the bottom of the engine. All internal (moving) parts of the engine need to be lubricated by the engine oil.
Inadequate lubrication will cause the parts to wear out faster and eventually lead to engine failure. An oil filter keeps the oil clean and free of debris. If the filter is not replaced on a regular basis, it will get clogged and will not be able to pass oil into the engine.
1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 Cadillac Deville oil capacity and oil change
|Engine||Oil capacity / Filter capacity||Recommended oil type||Oil change interval|
|L37 DeVille DHS 4.6 V8 32V||7.1 L 7.5 US Quarts / Filter: n/a||
|10,000 km (6,000 miles) or 12 months|
Cadillac deville oil change kit (I bought my own) 5.5-6 hours to remove the oil and clean out, then about 10 minutes of hot gas or so. Then about 3 hours of normal cold gas, then another 5-10 to do the engine modifications. The rest was very straight forward and you won’t forget your work! All in all it was awesome and I’m already thinking of buying my own at a later date!!
Thanks for being so thorough with this, and for making every single thing go in order!! You guys did what you said you were going to do to get me into these cars, and you did it perfectly!
I’ve owned a 2009 V6 for about 8 months now and it is starting to get old- like, old. I’m glad I chose you guys because you managed to keep things fresh while I was getting used to some of the newer components. My old car is still very well maintained and pretty well driven – you guys went above and beyond to keep things great. I’m excited about the new VW and how it will work for me now.
