    THE GUY SAID HE JUST REPLACED THE THERMOSTAT AND THE RADIATOR BUT IT
    OVERHEATED A LITTLE, DO YOU THINK IT WILL NEED MAJOR ENGINE ABOVE THE
    PRICE OF $1000? IVE TALKED HIM DOWN TO $4,000.

Depends on why it overheats... if it's just a thermostat or rad it could be a good buy... without knowing the condition of the rest of the vehicle, milage etc it's hard to be sure.

have a trusted mechanic (not associated with the buyer) have a look at it and give you an assessment.

    Have a mechanic of your choice look it over. to many variables to it. also if the motor was close to meltdown that in itself can create other problems that will show up later. pull the dipstick for the oil tho and examine it... what colour is it ?

99 cadillac deville engine overheating an loosing coolent couple times a day.Replaced thermostat, water pump ok, cooling fans on at 217deg.,radiator pressure tested an holding pressure.engine still keeps...


Check to see if you have flow through the entire radiator.If part of the radiator core is cool to the touch when the engine is at operating temp, this indicates restricted radiator flow. If the entire radiator core is not allowing water to flow through, cooling will not be at all efficient. Also a good idea would be to purchase a block tester. available at napa and other reputable parts houses for around thirty dollars. You remove a small amount of coolant, and put the tool in the radiator, or pressure tank opening. If there are any combustable gasses present, i'e' exhaust, this would indicate a head gasket breech, (or maybe worse) and would indicate that it's time to stop looking for a simple problems, and get proffessional help. Good luck to you!

I have a 1991 deville, and it just started overheating about 1 month ago. I put anti freeze in it and when its driven alot or long miles, then it runs hot and the antifreeze is gone.


If the engine fan works and you get good heat from the heater then you could have a bad head gasket. First make sure you dont have a leak somewhere and the car is overheating from low coolant level.

Problem with overheating on 1996 Cadillac Deville with Northstar engine. The information screen read "engine overheating", "idle engine" and "change oil" all within one minute. Are these issues related...


The oil life resets to zero after the engine overheats. Check for external leaks first, make sure the water pump belt is still there and turning. The most likely cause if the car has over 70,000 miles is head gaskets.

Trying to locate water pump on my 2000 caddy deville


Its on the same side of the engine as the transmission, driven by the belt up top. It requires a special socket to remove the pump from the housing.(also, the pump turns clockwise to remove!)

Used cadillac deville


i would suggest having the car towed to a shop before purchasing it. have them check the water pump first and because it has the north star engine they need special tools to fix it
