Question about 1998 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

I recently crack my 1998 cadillac deville oil pan. Just recently got my oil pan fixed but now am having problems with my car over heating, cooling fans not working as well as my winshield wipers and my head lights. Is there any fuses or sensors below or around the engine that could be causing this problem??..

Take it back to the garage who done the work and get them to check it over as it sounds like they have left a plug out somewhere on the power distribution box under the bonnet and if it was working when it went in then it should work when you get the car back ,be diplomatic and friendly and they do it free of charge and maybe even throw in a wax job,start shouting and you know what the answer will be also be a bit of a creeper and ask them if they could service the vehicle in a week or two when you get paid as this is the carrot in front of the donkey if you follow my drift

SOURCE: Where are the cooling fan relays for a 1998

Are you sure that you don't mean the cooling fan control module? It should be located up front next to the cooling fan. It is square shaped and has a long square shaped plug going into it. 00114_cooling_fan_control.jpgReads the temperature of the coolant and passes the information to the engine control computer (ECC). The ECC receives analog information and signals the cooling fan switch to cycle the cooling fan on or off, as required.

SOURCE: 2001 cadillac deville, overheats without loss of coolant

First, provided their are no visible coolant leaks and/or loss of coolant with no signs of leaks, I would thoroughly flush cooling system and replace coolant, then check and/or replace thermostat (you can place thermostat in boiling water to check for proper function), if you have tried these 2 steps and still are experiencing overheating you may need to replace your water pump which can be a tricky job if you're unfamiliar and try to do it yourself, however, I could walk you through it if necessary. Also visually check your radiator hoses for bulges, wear ,etc along with heater hoses etc. You may want to also check radiator fins to see if they are dirty/obstructed and clean if necessary. Let me know if I can assist you further and how it works out

SOURCE: 1998 Cadillac Deville low refrigerant a/c

I have a 1999 Cadillic Deville. The low Frefrigerant indicater come on after about 15 minutes of disconnecting the battery power. Each Time I reset the power the air conditioner comes back on for a while then goes out. I have taken it into the local auto repair place and they find no problem with the unit.
Could this be a intermittent connection to the computer. They have replaced both sencors and the problem persists. Where is the computer located on the car that handles this AC sensor message?

1998 Cadillac Deville Northstar engine...when I bought the blower motor was bad...we fixed that... the mechanic said we need an oil pan gasket...but we have no leaks kinda smell something like oil...


Keep checking the oil every time you gas up and you will be able to estimate how much oil it uses/100 miles or so. Then you can plan your trip. If the oil gets too low a warning will show up. That engine has about 7 quarts in the pan. As long as you don't run the engine low on oil the leak is just waste.

I have a Cdillac Deville 98 northstar. Getting an Error message - Engine overjeat, Change Engine oil, Check Coolant level and later I get Idle engine message I changed engine oil and coolant recently -1500...


Whatever you do, NEVER allow this engine to overheat and always use the correct antifreeze (DEX COOL) or you will damage your heads severly. The heads were made from aluminum so there is a very serious warping issue on the 1998 Cadillac Northstar engines. There should have been a recall but wasnt, ended up costing me 3 thousand USD to fix the engine problems I had but she now runs fine. I only had the car 4 months before this happened so someone prior to me owning evidentaly let it overheat on too many occassions and I had no choice but to fix cause I was still paying on the car!! Good luck

99 Cadillac Deville Coolant Leak


Most likely a cracked block or free plug that came out or loose. Other options are hozes, which I believe the dealer would have fixed. A third option is the water pump itself.
