Sad to say there are a few items and hoses in the way to get to the thermostat housing though it can be done even by a novice but it sounds you have more expereince than a novice, it will just take more time and patience and memory to what goes where, and oif you have water in your oil that would tell if you have a head gasket or cracked head (water in your oil means that the oil on the dipstick is a foamy light brown color) overheating can also be caused by the fan not running propery or at all ( check fuses and fan temperature sensor relays) also it can be caused by a bad waterpump check for leakage, tight belt or squel from the pump

My 97 Cadillac Seville will not start and dies while driving.


Check battery leads. If they're loose, or not making good contact, the engine will shut down or possible not start. It's a safety feature to protect the alternator.

I need directions on how to change a headlight on a 97 cadillac seville


there is a plastic black cover on the front of the engine compartment that has a couple of creases in it where you can lift the cover to reveal the headlight bulbs from behind the lenses. Change the light bulb by rotating the black plastic ring counter clockwise to release the bulb from its socket. Also, pull the electrical connector off the bulb.
