Question about 1998 Cadillac Eldorado

1 Answer

1998 Seville SLS 4.6 Northstar temperature gauge only goes up to the 10 o'clock position & cabin air is slightly warm, even after 20 miles of driving. Just started a week ago. Faulty thermostat? How is it removed & replaced? Any other possibilities? No leaks. Engine runs just fine otherwise.

Sounds like your thermostat may be stuck open. You will be able to look at it and tell upon removal.

Hello: All Cadillac Devilles had a Northstar starting in 1996. It will not make any difference if it is a SLS (275 HP) or a STS (300 HP)

It could be that the thermostat is stuck in the open position thus providing maximum coolant flow through the engine when the engine is still cold, ie from a cold start. (The thermo should close when the engine is stopped and cold and it opens up once the coolant temp increases and the engine has been running for a few minutes.) Once the engine is hot maximum coolant flow between engine and radiator is normal.

Do you also find that your heater takes a while to provide warm air to the cabin in winter when you notice this condition?

If you do not know when the thermostat was last changed then I would suggest you change it. ( If it malfunctions and sticks in the closed position you will really have a problem). The radiator/engine coolant could no doubt do with a flush and change in any event as it should be done every 2 years. If you don't know when it was last done - do it. Cooling systems tend to be a neglected part of essential vehicle maintenance.
