How to Repair a cadillac engine that overheats
On this video I'm repairing a 2002 Cadillac Deville 4.6 lt northstar
engine. Customers complaint was that the cars temperature would be good at
idle but once the car was on the road it would overheat
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
Caddilac with overheating problem
!998 Caddilac Deville started from cold start with clear hose inline to
engine block. No thermostat installed. White smoke appears out of both tail
pipes but goes away after a few minutes. This is probably condensation from
the cold start. There seems to be no flow going through the clear plastic.
Fluid does show up but suspect that this is just a result of fluid boiling
out of the block.
99 CADILLAC northstar engine replacement
Me installing a new rebuilt engine and trans. on a CADILLAC. With some
great jams by Accept. No copyright bla bla intended. I payed for my copy
of the music, please do the same.
Engine and Transmission Removal - '95 Suburban - Part 1
Using the Ford backhoe, we removed the engine and trans combo from the
Suburban. This truck has about 170,000 miles, and sufferred a driveshaft
failure caused by a cracked transmission case. The only fix is to rebuild
the transmission into a new case. Since so many parts were going to have
to come out, it was decided to remove the engine too so it can be gone
over, and freshened up.
Now the project will meet a fork in the road - rebuild the trans, freshen
up the motor, and put it back in? Or just build up a carb'ed 572 and make
lead sled. :)
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?
