What is the Federal emissions warranty for the 2005 Cadillac V8 STS? I am having problems with lean fuel and am told it is out of warranty due to time and age by the dealer but others say it has an 8 year warranty Federal emissions warranty. It is in the State of Georgia. Can I get some details from the Feds on a website?

I cannot figure out how to reply to you guys but the VIN is 1G6DC67A0501420XX

Post me the full 17 digit vin, and I can get you the vehicle information. The federal emissions warranty should be 8 yrs/80k if I am not mistaken. The info will give the exact in-service date, and expiration date/miles.

The VIN is incorrect for some reason, at first glance the XX ending is incorrect. I tried substituting a couple numbers but still got nothing. Also try this information, it is also in your warranty info guide that is part of your owners packet.

Emission Control Systems Warranty
The emission warranty on your vehicle is issued in accordance with the U.S. Federal Clean Air Act. Defects in material or workmanship in GM emission parts may also be covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty Bumper-to-Bumper coverage. There may be additional coverage on GM diesel engine vehicles. In any case, the warranty with the broadest coverage applies.

What Is Covered
The parts covered under the emission warranty are listed under the "Emission Warranty Parts List" later in this section.

How to Determine the Applicable Emissions Control System Warranty (Light Duty Trucks Only)
State and Federal agencies may require different emission control system warranty for light duty trucks depending on:

" Whether the truck is certified with a light duty or heavy duty emission control system.

" Whether the truck is certified for California emissions in addition to Federal emissions.

To determine emissions eligibility: locate the emission control label in the engine compartment on the air cleaner assembly or on the engine. The language on the bottom left side of the label will describe if the vehicle is equipped with a light, medium, or heavy duty emission control system.

All light duty trucks are eligible for Federal Emissions Control System Warranty Coverage. If the emissions control label contains language stating the vehicle is certified to California emissions standards, the vehicle is also eligible for California Emissions Control System Warranty Coverage.

Federal Emission Control System Warranty
Federal Warranty Coverage

" Car and Light Duty Truck equipped with Car and Light Duty Gasoline Engines

Federal Emission Defect Warranty
GM warrants to the owner the following:

" The vehicle was designed, equipped, and built so as to conform at the time of sale with applicable regulations of the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

" The vehicle is free from defects in materials and workmanship which cause the vehicle to fail to conform with those regulations during the emission warranty period.

Emission related defects in the genuine GM parts listed under the Emission Warranty Parts List, including related diagnostic costs, parts, and labor are covered by this warranty.

Federal Emission Performance Warranty
Some states and/or local jurisdictions have established periodic vehicle Inspection and Maintenance (I/M) programs to encourage proper maintenance of your vehicle. If an EPA-approved I/M program is enforced in your area, you may also be eligible for Emission Performance Warranty coverage when all of the following three conditions are met:

" The vehicle has been maintained and operated in accordance with the instructions for proper maintenance and use set forth in the owner manual supplied with your vehicle.

" The vehicle fails an EPA-approved I/M test during the emission warranty period.

" The failure results, or will result, in the owner of the vehicle having to bear a penalty or other sanctions, including the denial of the right to use the vehicle, under local, state, or federal law.

GM warrants that your dealer will replace, repair, or adjust to GM specifications, at no charge to you, any of the parts listed under the "Emission Warranty Parts List" later in this section which may be necessary to conform to the applicable emission standards. Non-GM parts labeled "Certified to EPA Standards" are covered by the Federal Emission Performance Warranty.

California Emission Control System Warranty
This section outlines the emission warranty that GM provides for your vehicle in accordance with the California Air Resources Board. Defects in material or workmanship in GM emission parts may also be covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty Bumper-to-Bumper coverage. There may be additional coverage on GM diesel engine vehicles. In any case, the warranty with the broadest coverage applies.

This warranty applies if your vehicle meets both of the following requirements:

" Your vehicle is registered in California or other states adopting California emission and warranty regulations*.

" Your vehicle is certified for sale in California as indicated on the vehicle's emission control information label.

Important: * Massachusetts, Maine, and Vermont have California Emissions Warranty coverage. (New York adopted California emissions standards, but not the California emissions warranty. The Federal Emissions Control Warranty applies to all vehicles in New York.)
