    This engine (4.5 V8) can not be overheated like this, it ruins the engine.

I can almost 100% be sure that your head gaskets are gone. I worked at a Caddy dealer and when this happens then the gaskets are gone. If it was a t-stat the car would not over heat. You think t-stat will cause an over heat problem. The northstar engine has programing to prevent this from happing using fuel to cool the cylinders as the engine runs in the non firing cylinder.

Sounds like you may have a head gasket problem. These engines were known for having head gaskets go bad which would pump engine exhaust into the cooling system causing it to overflow

My Cadillac Deville, 2002 northstar is running hot........or the temp gage goes up and I have to stop driving..I have a new thermostat,relay switches for the fans,temp control sensor and a new coolant...


Check the fan to see if it is going on. On my 1997 Cadillac Deville Limousine I had to have the 2 fans, and 3 relays replaced, as well as the wiring contacts for the relays at an auto electric shop for about $700 last fall, but it has been running cool since then.

What if it is not the thermostat?what else could run the 2000 cadillac deville hot


It could be the water pump or a clogged cooling system. Is your coolant level ok, or is it losing antifreeze?

Remove the cap from the coolant bottle and fill it all the way to the top. Then start the engine. Does the coolant shoot from the bottle?

My 2002 cadillac deville white smoke from exhaust


Head gasket. There is antifreeze seeping into the cyllinder when it's not running. When you start it, it won't fire properly until that water is blown out the exhaust. Once it's gone, in a few seconds, just like you describe, it'll run fine. The antifreeze is then being blown out the exhaust. Re - white smoke.
