    Thanks for the quick response! You'll have to bear with - all I really remember was the $2500. They mentioned a slew of seals and stated they would have to pull the engine. I'll find out more tomorrow. Still - $2500? For an oil leak?

My 2002 Deville has started making a whining noise when accelerating after about 35 mph. When decelerating it winds down and then stops.

check manifold gaskets for leaks, check vacuum hoses for leaks. check the transmission oil condition ( auto tranny)
if it is an auto then it may require the pan to come off and check for mechanical fault.

Hi! My 1999 Cadillac Deville for about 2 weeks started messaging low refrig-ac-off. Check engine light on!.

When you change your oil is up to you,you set the
months & miles you go. Any car with a reminder
for oil is just a gadget

You were told that your low on a/c refrigerant by the

Now the check light related or not has to be addressed,
by checking for codes & diagnosing the effected system

Your a/c system needs repair,not added to, only to leak out
& polute the atmosphere

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.

My 2005 cadillac cts leaks coolant when idling for more than a few minutes after it is warm.

Try to add the recommended coolant sealant from the dealer. If this doesn't work then mechanical repair will be required.

For instance, I have a 1997 Cadillac Deville Limousine that I acquired, and it was leaking antifreeze through the o-ring of the water pump. Replacing the water pump was indicated and did so. But, after that the head gasket was leaking as indicated by a miss and fog coming out of the tailpipe. I repaired that problem by adding a $30 can of Bar's Leaks Head Gasket Repair, the kind that doesn't require draining the coolant system. That did the trick, and haven't had a problem since (for 3 months now).

Where is your coolant leaking from? Is the system within normal operating temperature?

HUGE OIL consumption! My check engine light came! Loud rattling!

Sounds like an oil seal or manifold gasket. If you don't see oil in your driveway, the oil is burning off in the engine and this would cause the misfire if it's getting to the sparkplugs. Take a flashlight and look under the hood for any small pools of oil near the sparkplugs. I'd go to a different dealership for service and I'm willing to bet they'll confirm an oil seal or gasket problem. Best of luck with your problem.

Several quarter sized leaks on a 93 cadillac deville?

Check the filter to make sure it the right one and on tight. Do not drive without oil. Engine will seize-up.

1999 deville overheating

Head Gasket problems are common on the 4.6. It is an expensive repair, because the engine has to come out and all the head bolt holes have to be retapped. Check it for leaks first. Check the water pump and water pump housing to cylinder head gaskets.
