Question about 1990 Cadillac Deville
First, I would determine it is bad. I have a 1990 Cadillac Sedan Deville, and sometimes it doesn't turn over. But, if I toggle the switch a few times or up to 5 times, it starts to turn over and the car starts.
I have the same problem with a 1997 Cadillac Deville.
If you are set on changing it, here is a picture and instructions on how to test:
Starter TESTING Voltage Drop Test Fig. 1: Schematic of a voltage drop test
NOTE: The battery must be in good condition and fully charged prior to performing this test.
Remember to disconnect the battery and remove the wires from the starter at the hex nut.
Then, remove the 3 or so bolts that hold the starter on using an extension and ratchet if necessary.
Hope this helps.

Sounds like the engine is idling to high. There is a procedure that you must go through to set it. Reply and I will let you know how to set it.

It sounds like they didn't get the cooling system filled completely, there's an air bubble. I had a problem with a 2000 Oldsmobile overheating, it turned out to be the aftermarket thermostat. I bought a stat from GM the problem went away.

Testimonial: "thank you for your quick response "
you need to verify the dome lights are turning off before you walk away,something is draining the battery.check you car out after driving it and make sure radio and any other things all shut off.
