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

This is generally a fault with your evaporative canister purge valve or wiring. This is the little guy that allows the engine to pull vapors from your fuel tank. If you need additional info let us know.. Best of Luck.

I just purchased a 1999 Cadillac Deville. Drove fine for a few days. Today I drove 75 MPH for 20 miles on freeway and car began to overheat. Dashboard told me to replace oil. Checked the coolant, it took 1...


When a Cadillac (Northstar) overheats, It will give the message to change the oil. If you run a Northstar and keep running it long enough it will start shutting off cylinders and stop the A/C compressor to help protect itself. In this condition I would check for a blown headgasket. Possibly your technican will find the problem. Could also be stuck thermostat, dirty radiator Thanks

I want to buy a 99 cadillac deville and I was told it was only a head gasket problem (blown) what other items should I review before purchasing this vehicle. The owner claims she never let the car overheat...


poor choice if purchased. The head bolts tend to break and to have it repaired is very costly for they are slender and long. . A 99 Cadillac is too old for they have many modules operating this vehicle and the shocks themselves run nearly $1000 each. Back off on this deal

Hi im bout to but a 1991 cadillac sedan deville its a v8 the guy im buying it from said it was running a little rough so he took it to a mechanic and had platinum plugs new wires distributer cap all put on...


You don't want to buy a car with bad valve/s. The engine is losing compression in those cylinders and will end up rebuilding quickly or sitting on the road for a tow. Just hope you look at another CADILLAC and let this one pass. Engine failure waiting to happen

The engine is junk, do not buy this car! You'll be looking at a $4000. repair bill.
I love his rational though...the further away you get, the better it will be. Ya, for him!

OVERHEATING


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.
