I have 2000 3.1 mailbu

1st: check if the radiator gets hot too: if not it is the thermostat sticking closed.
If the radiator gets hot too, the fan should come one: if not, the thermoswitch or the fan or the tempp sensor is broken
If the fan comes on and it still overheats, the radiator is plugged up, this is chaeckable with an infra red thermometer...

Yes it is normal just no hot air

1. When setting the temperature to MAX, blower level to FULL and outside air Vent CLOSED, no hot air comes out after 2-5 minutes?
If YES, when did you last flushed your radiator and is it full?
2. if more than 5 years ago, flush radiator system, instructions are usually in Owners manual. Use a bottle of Radiator cleaner, run egine hot for about 10-15 minutes, carefully open petcock in bottom of radiator to flush out radiator, WARNING, careful as flushed coolant would be boiling hot. As sson petcock is open and water start to flow out, carefully open radiator cap to enhance flushing flow. Use garden hose to fill radiator while flushing until water coming out from petcock is cold and clear.
Once clear, start engine, turn heter full and blower full blast and keep hose in radiator flowing full, leave petcock open until clear water flows out again. Once clear waters comes out, turn off engine,turn off garden hose and let water drain empty radiator. Once it stops flowing out, close petcock snug and put radiator cap on, pull off radiator coolant catch bottle, clean bottle for any debris and dirt. Drain any water, leave bottle empty and put it back onto its place.
3. Fill radiator with 1 gallon (4L) of concentrated coolant, top up radiator until full, fill catch bottle with concentrated coolant, start engine and keep it overflowing until no bubbles comes out and the radiator is fully hot. Once it is flowing good, close and connect everything. Drive with it and keep catch bottle filled as necessarry.
Good luck. Give as vote and good comment if this advise solve youor problem. Thank you.

How do you drain the radator?

You will need to remove the radiator cap. Then you need to locate the petcock (drain plug) on the bottom of the radiator. Remove the petcock by carefully loosening it. You may need to use a pair of pliers but be careful not to break the petcock. When you reinstall the petcock make sure not to over tighten it, it should be snug but not tight.

I want to drain the radiator on a 2000 Cadillac NorthStar engine (STS model Cadillac). Where is the drain petcock, driver or passenger side of radiator, and how is the best way to access it? I do not see...

Lay under front of car and look under the radiator. The radiator support/header panel should have a hole in it look up in hole the petcock should be hiding in there. DO NOT LAY UNDER THE CAR WITHOUT THE E_BRAKE ON, please.
