The fuel pump is inside the tank. did the distributor cap get wet when you were installing the thermostat? check to see if the wires are pluged into the distributor cap well. if you use a fuel pressure gage you will be able to determine if the fuel pump is working.

98 Deville had a dead batt. Replaced, turns over but wont start


Sounds like fuel issue, remove the black plastic cadillac cover on the top of the engine, then find the fuel rail on top, and remove the black tire cap looking thing on the end of the fuel rail. Now you will have to get a fuel pressure guage ($45), and screw it on right there. Or you can also just poke that little valve with a ink pen to see if any fuel squirts out, it should come out with alot of force, it is like a valve on a bicycle, it only lets fuel out when you push on the valve ***. As for the battery being dead perhaps you left your parking lights on? My 97 deville, had a cold start problem, that it took 5 minutes of cranking off and on, to get it cold started, but after it was running it would start throughout the day just fine. I ended up replacing the fuel pump in the tank, and the fuel filter on the rail.

Where is the themostat on 2000 cadillac deville


hi. On a 4.9L follow the upper radiator back to the engine. This should be the thermostat housing. The thermostat should be inside.
On a 4.6L the thermostate is in the housing which is near the water pump drivebelts "on the coolant crossover housing". If this is not clean I recommend you buy the Haynes for your DeVille. See page 3-4, illustration 3.14.
