Cadillac XTS Oil Capacity and Transmission Fluid Capacity


An oil change is an act of replacing your car, truck, or SUV’s crankcase’s oil and oil filter. Oil has an expiration date and should be changed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations in your Owner’s Manual. Synthetic motor oil can extend the time/mileage interval on many modern vehicles to 12,000 miles (12 months).

Cadillac has always been about big-time luxury, but the not-quite-a-flagship XTS sedan shows that the firm isn’t at the front of the pack when it comes to watercraft. There’s a twin-turbocharged V-6 with enough wafting power for executive cruisers, and many premium features are available in higher trim levels. The XTS, on the other hand, can’t match the opulence or refinement of Mercedes’ S-class ruler.

Cadillac’s argument for the XTS is that it offers goods at a significantly lower price than Mercedes (and retains some of the brand mystique that makes the XTS more appealing than its similarly-priced Genesis G90).

Why is Changing the Oil in My Cadillac Important?

The way we lubricate engines has changed dramatically in recent years, but one thing that hasn’t changed is how we keep the oil clean to assure long engine life. This entails removing the oil, replacing the filter, and refilling the engine with new lubes.

Oil and lubricant technology is being pushed to the limit by increasingly powerful high-compression engines, auto start/stop technology, turbocharging, and other factors. Conventional oils are extracted straight from crude oil. Synthetic oils are a blend of traditional oil with additives that improve performance while adding cost on average than ordinary oils.

The V-Sport may pique your interest; it’s a pleasant cruiser with an excellent top speed. However, if you don’t share our tolerance for traffic infractions, we’d advise you to opt for the Premium Luxury trim. Get it because of its extra standard features that add to the XTS’ luxury sedan credentials, including driver assistance technologies (for example), an adaptive suspension, and a premium Bose audio system. Premium Luxury pricing is reasonable as well.

Most new cars come standard with an automatic gearbox. As a result, there is really little maintenance to be done. Nonetheless, most owners’ manuals will recommend changing the transmission fluid every 90,000 miles or so. Because high-pressure cleaning might dislodge debris in the transmission that can jam up the mechanism, flushing your transmission’s fluid has fallen out of vogue in recent years.

Your car’s gearbox will provide years of trouble-free driving if you adhere to the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule. Check with your owner’s handbook and your dealership service advisor for more information.
