About Cadillac Escalade EXT

Spun off the Cadillac Escalade, Cadillac Escalade EXT was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's Cadillac Motor Car Division from 2002 to 2013 as a full-size luxury Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). Originally introduced to take advantage of the luxury SUV's street cred and runaway popularity, Escalade EXT is a mixture of full-size luxury SUV and crew-cab pickup. Regarded as the ultimate Escalade by some Cadillac fans, EXT was eventually discontinued due to disappointing sales in 2013 after being manufactured through two generations.
The first-generation Cadillac Escalade EXT was produced from September 2001 to 2006 and debuted for the 2002 model year. It came in only one single trim level. Equipped with a recirculating-ball setup, EXT was powered by a 6.0 L V8 rated at 345 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque and this engine sent power through a 4-speed automatic transmission to four wheels. The most recent Cadillac Escalade EXT arrived at 2007 model year and it came in three trim levels: base, Luxury and Premium in one body style: 4-door crew cab pickup. Back then, EXT got power from a 6.2 L V8 producing 403 horsepower and 417 pound-feet of torque. And power was sent through a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Cadillac Escalade EXT Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Offering a gratifying driving experience, light and predictable steering and nimble driving, Cadillac Escalade EXT is truly a good choice for people who want to have both an SUV and a pickup. But since the EXT also has some problems such as poor fuel economy, you had better be prepared for these common problems in advance:
First, beyond the question, engine failure also becomes a common and serious issue on Cadillac Escalade EXT. I believe every driver has heard of this problem and knows exactly the seriousness of this issue. Thus, you need to learn about these symptoms collected from experienced EXT drivers and get them solved as early as possible. They told, at first, you could hear ticking, clanking or whining noises from the engine, see smoke coming from the engine, oil and coolant puddles under the car, smell oil odor and the worse situation is the engine performance reduces dramatically. Once you notice a decrease in oil pressure, power while acceleration and fuel economy and the Check Engine Light comes on, you need to start to inspect the condition of EXT rocker arm, spark plug, valve cover gasket, intake manifold gasket, fuel pump, head gasket, oil pump, engine mount, oil pan gasket and cooling hose.
Second, for Cadillac Escalade EXT drivers, suspension and transmission failures are also very hard to handle with as they sometimes have similar symptoms. For example, both of them could result in clanking or grinding noises from underneath the vehicle, but suspension failure often also brings about uneven tire wear, intense car vibration, loose steering wheel, all could lead to poor handling. Thus, you should inspect the EXT shock absorber, coil spring insulator, shock and strut mount and pitman arm once above symptoms appear. As for transmission failure, please pay more attention to the working condition of EXT valve body, shift cable and automatic transmission filter.
However, you should also bear in mind that routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of your Cadillac Escalade EXT is an essential job for you if you want to enjoy only pleasure brought by your EXT. First of all, electrical parts need routine maintenance due to a high frequency of usage, therefore, EXT power window switch, blower motor, instrument cluster, speedometer, spark plug wires, headlight switch, ambient temperature sensor and brake light switch should be maintained routinely.
