Question about 1998 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

I have a 1998 Cadillac Sedan Deville with a Northstar engine, that has 211, 000 miles on it. It has always been serviced regulary at the dealership, however now I am having problems with it overheathing. The radiator is new. It runs fine, sound fine, yet over hearts and I have a check engine light on. Today I drove it and the temp stayed at 196 degrees. The dealer ship tells me it is a headgasket, that could be repaired for between 4,300 and 5,000. What do you think? Thanks!

I have a Cdillac Deville 98 northstar. Getting an Error message - Engine overjeat, Change Engine oil, Check Coolant level and later I get Idle engine message I changed engine oil and coolant recently -1500...


Whatever you do, NEVER allow this engine to overheat and always use the correct antifreeze (DEX COOL) or you will damage your heads severly. The heads were made from aluminum so there is a very serious warping issue on the 1998 Cadillac Northstar engines. There should have been a recall but wasnt, ended up costing me 3 thousand USD to fix the engine problems I had but she now runs fine. I only had the car 4 months before this happened so someone prior to me owning evidentaly let it overheat on too many occassions and I had no choice but to fix cause I was still paying on the car!! Good luck
