2000 cadillac deville is overheating, replaced thermostat: water pump radiator had head gaskets fixed it's saying check coolant level and it spews coolant from the overflow tank cap when hot thoughts?

Two cooling fans controlled by three relay's . If only one fan is working ,that could be a problem .
Coolant Level Sensor Description
The coolant level sensor monitors the coolant level in the cooling system and indicates if the coolant is low. This sensor is located at the base of the radiator surge tank and is not serviceable.
The IPC receives a discrete input from the engine coolant level switch. The engine coolant level switch is normally closed. When the engine coolant is low, the engine coolant level switch opens. When the IPC receives an open signal from the engine coolant level switch, the IPC displays the message on the DIC.

Relay Driven Dual Cooling Fan Diagnostics There are using a pontiac , by your cadillac is the same .

When i try to use the cruise control or air conditioner in my 2000 cadillac deville it overheats. This has happened under normal, mostly flat driving conditions and while trying to cross a mountain pass....

First, you must have a properly installed thermostat that is working correctly. Second, Northstar engines are notorious for air in the cooling system after draining and refilling - keep checking the purge tank level after overheating and after the cooling system cools down, and make sure the surge tank is kept at the full mark. Third, make sure your cooling fans are working correctly (relay, fuse, temperature sensor) - check to make sure both are running when it overheats. Fourth, even if your AC is working correctly, the compressor could be putting an abnormally high drag on the engine and will need to be checked (how's your gas mileage?).

As far as your cruise control is concerned, there is no direct connection to overheating - all it does is control the throttle.

If all the above is correct, the problem will probably be blockage in the cooling system (try a flush) or your water pump itself is failing (bad belt?).

How to tell if your 2000 Jetta gls vr6 need struts? My car squeeks when I driving and If I push down on the hood.

After ten years your are sure to need a new suspension. The way you cantell the shocks are gone is you'll see signs of fluid leaking from the inside of the top onto the outsides of the inner bottom. A couple of jacks and the right wrenches will be pretty easy for even a novice mechanic. Two to four hours your done, it will also increarse the cars hoursepower and preformance.

I have a 1997 vw jetta with the vr6 in it, and the heater core was recently replaced because of a leak, but now, that is fixed, but the car is overheating and shuts itself down after a few minutes of...

Ouch, don't let it overheat it'll cost you a new head gasket. You probably just don't have enough coolant. They probably filled it up and didn't run it to drain the reseroir and refill it. Check the coolant level, make sure it is full. Failing that, the thermostat might be stuck, the rad might be clogged if it's old, the new heater core might be the wrong one a too restrictive. I can't rememebr if my old VR6 had a ad cap but if it does take the coolant cover off the rad, start the car with it off... don't worry it's won't spit of anything, look down to see if the fluid is moving, if it is then you have circulation. Dont' run it like this for too too long as it will begine to Overflow. My bet is the coolant level bro. Cheers.

Electrical fans don't work

Several things can cause this. I'm 99% sure the sensor for the fan control is in the radiator its self. 3 wires if I remember correctly, This is the most common problem. If you dont know how to test it I recomend taking it to a garage. Is antifreeze full? Above the level of the sensor? The fans themself could be bad. Do either of them come on when you turn on the A/C? if so, that fan is good for sure. Either way, welcome to the wold of VW, time to test some wires. That gets a bit to involved to detail in here. Best bet for the is buy the dealer manual. Expensive but woth every penny!

1.1 mm is the standard gap for a platinum tipped plug. Plugs for this car usually come pre-set but it's always worth checking before installing. Hope this helps.
