Northstar Head gasket repair and oil leaks: My oil leaks are too bad to drive the car farther than it takes to get the crossover pipe hot. I also have 150,000 miles and will be racing the car. The Head bolts have not yet pulled out enough to cause the head gaskets to fail. However, the process needed to repair my oil leaks will have the engine out of the car, so most of the labor costs associated with a head gasket repair will already be in play. I've decided to save money in the long range by spending a little more now and having both jobs done at once. If you cannot drive your car to the repair shop, I highly recommend the U-Haul auto transport trailer. The only catch is that you must be able to climb in and out of the side window.
Good morning caddy enthusiats. I bring to you all an issue I ran into 15 minutes ago on my way to work. Anyway, I go out to my 95 concours this morning and when I turn the key over to start it, it wont give anything, not a click, no turning over, nothing. The lights, buttons, antenna and dash display still function so I doubt it's a battery issue. This isn't the first time this has happened (it started mid last week) but I've always gotten it to start usually after about the 3rd time I turn the key over to start it. It would take about 5-6 seconds of me holding the key to get it to start but it did it. I'm not sure what to do at the moment. Just looking for some advice and insight plz. Thanx folks
Hello, I bought a 1997 Cadillac Catera in May of this year. When I bought the car I had it serviced and all seemed well. Later I began to notice a burning smell coming from the car and smoke coming from under the hood. Took to a mechanic to have it diagnosed and he said it needed new valve cover gaskets to start with. Replaced those and cleaned the engine well. (When I changed the gaskets, the spark plug resevoirs were full of oil) Cleaned them out, put new plugs in, new gaskets, and all seemed well up until recently. It is smoking from the drivers side of the engine and the bottom left front of the engine is drenched in oil which I suspect could be either motor oil or power steering fluid. I plan on taking it to a mechanic, but I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this before and what could be some possible leak locations? Thanks and all comments and replies are welcome!
