Question about Cadillac Seville

1 Answer

I would like my Seville northstar 1996 run poorly as a wedding prank-- just has to run for a few blocks to honeymoon hotel. Don't want groom to be able to fix it so he will be trapped in honeymoon suite. I don't mind if I have to spend a few hundred dollars to break and or fix the car later. Any ideas?

My 1996 cadillac sts is overheating.. ook how do i get air out of it

There is no need to purge the air out of the cooling system as it is self purging on the northstar engine.
The most common overheating problem with the Northstar engine is a blocked purge line. It's job is to purge air out of the cooling system.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank or trace the hose further back until you locate the blockage.
