I have not had much heat for many years. I decided te change my thermostat. I took off the two nuts and pulled apart and there was no thermostat even in that location. So i bougth a Stant 13758 per the recommendation of the parts store. It idin't fit. The dia of the opening was smaller then the thermostat. What didi i do wrong? Or was there never suppose to be one on this engine. The wierd thing is there was no recess for the thermstat on the engin block for this unit.

the heater core in a 1998 Cadillac is very tricky to replace. start with getting a pressure test to determine where the exact location of the leak is, it may not be the heater core. if you do decide to pull the dash apart to change the core make sure the battery is disconnected for at least an hour to allow the airbag system to discharge.
he's a lying two faced rat then!!!! just how long did he have this car???
years or days??? i bet it started to cook up on him so out come the thermostat and then sell it on to the nearest person who he can rip off,
if there was no thermostat fitted it is likely to be over heating the engine ,,,maybe a blocked rad? if its still getting hot when you drive it around,,,you can bet its blocked up! when you were changing the thermostat did the bolts look like they have just been took out? were there any fresh spanner marks on the nuts or bolts holding the thermostat cover down?????,,,its a dead give away that "A",,,
if it got stuck when they took it apart.yes. It may also be coincedence.the heat worked before they did the evap I beleive I would be more than a little angry.it should of been noticed when they had it apart. Sorry but this is not something I can be for sure about but I would question the whole deal, the original price is right, if they were at fault when the box was out this should be a free labor
repair in my book.
