Worst case it could the head gasket.Do you see any white smoke or moisture coming out of the tailpipe?
If the head gasket is blown the car will run a lot hotter than the normal (190 to 210 degree)....
You may need a mechanice to confirm this before panicking .

I have a 1998 cadillac deville ,how can I tell if


You have a Cadillac! You can assume that the thermostat is bad, the intake manifold is leaking and that you have a connecting rod or 2 going bad. Caddy engines do not last without constant maintainance.
You can spray water on the intake while the engine is running....if the noise goes away, you have a leak.

My 98caddilac deville keeps running hot,i put thermostate,waterpump i took it to shop they did a pressure test it all check out good . i was told it could be my passenger side fan but i think it should be...


I have a 1997 Cadillac Sedan Deville that did the same thing. I replaced the same things you have replaced on yours. The end result was a blown head gasket which I have found out is very common on older model Cadillacs that we own. After replacing the head gasket (which cost me parts/labor $2,200.00) at a reliable mechanic's shop that I have used for over 20 years, the car does not over heat. When I replaced the head gasket, my Cadillac had 131K. However, I have seen blown head gaskets on Cadillacs (similiar year/model) with as little as 50k at used car dealerships. Cadillacs are terrific vehicles but I've found out that bad head gaskets on older models are common problems. Good Luck...Hope this helps a little. A. Levisy in Virginia

I have a 1998 cadillac deville, that is over heating


check thermostat, put a coolant pressure tester to check for leaks. check radiator for fluid levels.
check to see if electric fan is working.
start car,when cooled, open radiator cap and check to see if its flowing,if not, then could be a bad water pump.
check carpet under dash for wet spots to indicate if heater core is bad.
any one of those could be at fault.

Slowly overheats after about 8mi.radiator cool at that time ,water pump running(good belt,not leaking) hoses hot also keeps neediding coolant top off but no leaking under car.no water in oil or evident...


That's about the right amount of time for a thermostat to start opening. If the rad is cold and the engine is overheating then get the thermostat changed. It's likely sticking closed. This situation would also cause your coolant to boil in the head and evaporate the water out of the mixture. That's why you need to keep topping up. Hope this helps.

Runs cool for about 15 miles then it gets hot(220) so i turn it off to let it cool about a half gallon of water is gone


220 to 230 deg. F is actually normal for the 1998 Cadillac Deville. If it goes to 250 deg. F or even 260 deg. F it goes into a limp mode where fresh air is pumped into 1/2 of the cylinders to preserve the engine up to 40 mi. of travel (in the case that a radiator fan isn't working or coolant has completely leaked out of the system).

If a half gallon of water is gone in the system and you keep losing it, there is a leak in the system say in the water pump o-ring or the radiator, or a hose.

If for the heater it is a blower module on top of the evaporator core housing. If for the cooling fans it is inside the front fender behind the headlights. That is a module also tice the size of a normal fist
