The vin number on the receipt maybe the vin number the used engine came from which is required by law. It shows the engine came from a car not stolen
Its the law to print the vin number on customers receipts for any used parts installed in their cars

Hi! My 1999 Cadillac Deville for about 2 weeks started messaging low refrig-ac-off. Check engine light on!.


When you change your oil is up to you,you set the
months & miles you go. Any car with a reminder
for oil is just a gadget

You were told that your low on a/c refrigerant by the
message

Now the check light related or not has to be addressed,
by checking for codes & diagnosing the effected system

Your a/c system needs repair,not added to, only to leak out
& polute the atmosphere

My 98caddilac deville keeps running hot,i put thermostate,waterpump i took it to shop they did a pressure test it all check out good . i was told it could be my passenger side fan but i think it should be...


I have a 1997 Cadillac Sedan Deville that did the same thing. I replaced the same things you have replaced on yours. The end result was a blown head gasket which I have found out is very common on older model Cadillacs that we own. After replacing the head gasket (which cost me parts/labor $2,200.00) at a reliable mechanic's shop that I have used for over 20 years, the car does not over heat. When I replaced the head gasket, my Cadillac had 131K. However, I have seen blown head gaskets on Cadillacs (similiar year/model) with as little as 50k at used car dealerships. Cadillacs are terrific vehicles but I've found out that bad head gaskets on older models are common problems. Good Luck...Hope this helps a little. A. Levisy in Virginia

I am trying to replace the thermostat on my 1999 Cadillac DeVille but cannot locate the housing.


Hello: Follow the bottom radiator hose on the drivers side to where it connects to the engine. Remove two bolts (10mm head) that will allow the hose to engine adapter to come off, the thermostat is under there. Note how the old thermostat comes out and be sure to install the new on the same way.

Will a cd changer from an 2000 cadillac deville work in an 2001 cadillac deville


Yes it will but your going to have to go tot he dealer to activate your radio. The radio is programed to work with the ECM's VIN number and replacing the radio with another radio will not recognize the Vin number and will not activate.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck.

My 99 cadillac deville ran hot about 8 months ago i took it to the dealer thay told me that i need a new engine and to drive it for a couple days and see what happen i have been driving it for eight months...


If you have no obvious external coolant leaks then the most likely culprits would be leaking head gaskets or warped heads. I would take the car to an engine rebuilding shop and get a second opinion to the dealer, not to say that they are wrong, but your engine may be salvageable at a cheaper cost and those guys would be better positioned to tell you that. Hope this helps.

If your just replacing the head gasket, you don't have to remove the motor. Just remove the top part of the engine.
