  1. 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
  2. Have to give a shout-out to all the Cadillac Northstar owners who trust me to do great work and keeping me busy! Also to Bruce with the boat motor project that takes up the whole shop
  3. Hi - it has been a while. I have had very little time to think about car stuff lately - even Cadillac stuff. I got married, defended my PhD, got a job, bought a house (I finally have a garage ), and very recently became a father. I still have the '97 DeVille, but it is now in need of some major renovations. There is oil going into the coolant (luckily not the other way around), misfiring, increased fuel consumption, high carbon monoxide levels in the exhaust, coolant consumption and so on. I am guessing a blown head gasket - certainly not something "less bad" - either way the engine will have
  4. Get off the wagon people! I have been working on these cars for 20 PLUS years from the conception in 1993. I have not had any issues with timeserts let alone NORMS inserts and I am not the only one obviously using these inserts. They work period and with the thousand of head gaskets let alone hundred or so rebuilds i have done without any issues. LEAD DON'T FOLLOW....
  5. So I'm looking at a 2000 deville with the N☆. Ad says it has a slight overheating issue. Right way I'm suspecting a headgasket and I'm looking for cheaper way of repairing. I have full access to a machine shop and thinking about making my own timeserts. Anybody try this?
  6. Hello, I'm new but I have a 1997 Cadillac STS, recently I've had some issues with this car. But my issue now is that I think I have a blown head gasket. My serpentine belt has popped off several different times. Once when I was adding coolant to the car while I had it running. It gurgled the coolant out and all over my engine and caused the belt to pop off. Then a few days later it over heated on me and popped the belt off again. I need someone who knows about Cadillacs to tell me something besides a new head gasket which will cost me two arms and a leg. I've read several different articles bu
  7. I have a 98 Deville with a 4.6L v8 northstar. About a week ago, my car overheated. Let it cool down and turns out, all my water was gone! So, I found out that once the car gets up to running temp, pressure is pushing water out of the overflow tube, (there is only one reservoir with a tube right by the cap) untill there is no water left! Checked my oil, it's clean so I'm hoping it's not a faulty head gasket. But I think its weird that water is just coming right back out? Somebody please help me.. This car is the love of my life, but if I'm looking at over $3,000 in labor cause of a HG I thi
  8. Hello, Cadillac owners and enthusiasts! I am in the process of doing a head gasket job and fixing up a 2000 DHS with 120k miles and a sunroof!. My ultimate goal is to repair it to like-new condition and sell it so someone can enjoy it instead of it heading for a scrap yard. Anyway, I have already done one head gasket job that proved to be fairly difficult because I was winging it. Now that I have the Time-Sert kit and the know-how, it's going a lot smoother. But, I was hoping I could get any constructive criticism, suggestions, or advice possible. Are Fel-Pro head gaskets of bad quality? I u
  9. I am new to the forum, I bought the most beautiful 95 El Dorado with 126k on it. I got a great deal on it and assumed that it has a blown head gasket. I am continuing to get bubbles into the overflow tank and of course it overheats after a short while. I did run the exhaust gas test blue liquid at the radiator over flow tank for several minutes and it never turns yellow. I am going to try this test again to make sure i did not contaminate the test. I have read that someone said something about a purge tube or something regarding the bubbles. Not sure where that is, but i will locate it.
  10. Just letting you guys know I am here still doing HG repair on Cadillac Northstar engines, and overhauls too.
