    it was replaced for the old motor size. the guy said that he put a new engine in it and something about the timing needs done and the fan and plastic casing is the only thing that needs to be done to the car.

    what size motor is it. perhaps he means the timing belt might need replacement. if it is computer controlled timing will already be set.

    you would need to tell us the engine size and was it a direct replacement for the old motor in size. I would think timing is controlled by the computer module on those vehicles.

Were do i put transmission fluid in the tranny 1997 cadi catera


Your Catera has a sealed for life transmission so therefore on one of these models there is no dipstick and you cannot check the fluid level yourself. The dealer can check the level but that is only necessary if you have a leak. Use a premium grade oil and a quality filter such as AC/Delco, Wix, Purolator, or Bosch. The correct weight oil is listed in your owner's manual and possibly on the oil fill cap or dipstick.

97 cadilac catera over heating at slow speeds


We found that all of the northstar engines of this era will eventually overheat and blow the head gasket (which we had replaced). The only good solution is to replace the headbolts with a stud kit ($450) and torque with nuts (like the race cars do). This has solved the headgasket, but still heats up to 224 degrees in city driving (100 degree Kansas City). ALSO you must always use the A/C as the cooling fans do not operate if it is turn to econ mode. Our fix cost us $2400, but the dealer wants $1000 more.
