    The cooling system in the north star`s(98 -01) Engines kinda sucks. If the new thermostat does not change try this, because sometimes you can get air pockets. Try this when the motor is luke warm( just starting to warm up) very carefully open the radiator cap, then go to the center hose right in back of the radiator gently squeeze it as you pour in the antifreeze keep on gently squeezing untill full this will help get the air out (do not go to fast or you will have a big mess)

Just follow the Upper Radiator Hose to the Block. The Hose will attach to a Bell housing on the Manifold. Remove this Bellhousing and the Hose. The Thermostat is Right underneath the Bell Housing. Reinstall the Same way that the Old one is sitting when you find it or it will not work Properly.

Cadillac dash light flashing.

Under the carpet, near the gas pedal, there is a ground wire screwed in, and that connection is going to be corroded. Clean up the connection and be sure it is tight. I just went through this with my 97 Seville. Fixed every electrical problem I was having with lights flashing, gauges going crazy, etc...

1999 Cadillac eldorado overheating. Changed thermostat, still overheating now with white smoke coming from exhaust. Checked water pump belt, it is there and turning. Cold air blowing from heater, no heat.

coolant leaking into engine probably blown head gaskets. More damage will occur the more you drive it. Unfortunate and expensive repair on a northstar.
