Tip & How-To about Cadillac DeVille

CADILLAC Northstar starter replacement

I had seen an abundance of questions on "Were is my starter for my Cadillac Northstar engine?" Yes it is very had to see one unless you have a crystal clear engine for it is mounted under the intake inside the engine.
An experience Cadillac tech can have one replaced in less than an hour. I see some do it in 30 minutes and less. (They have replaced hundreds of them through the years made) Changing one is quite simple and a cleaner way of doing it also having it mounted inside. It stays fairly clean through the years.
No gaskets are needed unless you destroy yours somehow

i just need to a general idea of where the starter is im gonna change it out is it under the thermostat on the left side of the motor on the tranmsn. side right? i have a 2001 cadillac deville.

If you have the NorthStar engine then then the starter is under the
intake manifold, no I am not joking. You have to remove the plastic intake
plenum to replace the starter, its a pretty big job and I would not advise you to do it yourself unless you are trained.
