Cadillac head gasket repaired
You check for leaks and everything looks good. Your mechanic checks the
cooling system and also finds nothing wrong. In fact, most Cadillacs can
idle all day and not loose a drop of coolant or overheat. However, as soon
as you get on the freeway the temperature starts to go up and the low
coolant light appears again. When you check the coolant level it's very
low. Frequently requiring a gallon or more to refill. Without any clear
indication as to what's causing the problem your mechanic may suggest
replacing various cooling system components. Again, this may resolve the
problem for a while, but soon the low coolant light re-appears. What to do?

Nate's 99 Cadillac update

really got hot that they did blow
Northstar Alternator Out the Bottom
This is the alternator to my 97 Cadillac DeVille Concours being removed
through the bottom of the car. Lots of descriptions, but this is how you
actually have to turn it to get it out. Please pardon my language.
Northstar rough idle at startup: vacuum leak
I was worried about the dreaded headgasket issue that is usually initiated
by gasket corrosion (coolant anti-corrosion protection failure).
Fortunately the problem was solved when I discovered the intake manifold
bolts were loose. It was a vacuum leak that would seal itself as the
materials expanded with heat. Whew! I do not use Dex-Cool anymore.
Another Reason NOT TO BUY A NORTHSTAR 4.6L Cadillac
I don't know why a pulley that controls the top cams would be made of
plastic instead of steel... but after the tree pull it sat for a week or
two then this happened. I have since pulled the motor and started taking
it apart for scrap... its a bad design from the start the heater core has a
section that says CUT here for service... the headers on the back cant be
removed without dropping the transmission. Tell me one good point about
