gamecock Posted April 18, 2009 Report Share Posted April 18, 2009 Northstar Performance First Post and possible caddie owner to be. Thanks for having me on this DB! Has anyone had any experience with this shop? My in-laws have a '98 Deville with 58K owned since new that appears to have a blown head gasket. They want to fix it and give it to me and my wife for my wife to drive. The car is losing coolant with none on the ground or visible coming out of the engine. Other day on 45 mile trip coolant light came on and the info center said "stop engine immediately" or something like that (my wife was driving to meet me). She pulled over at next safe exit and we came to her and added 1 liter of water and one gallon of antifreeze. Drove car 5 more miles without incident and had it towed 45 miles home. My father-in-laws tech pressure tested the system and it leaked down within a minute. Plan to perform exhaust strip test on coolant soon but am preparing for the worst (head gasket or cracked head). Car stumbles a tad on startup then runs great. They are driving it now short trips locally in their small town. I would trailer or ship car to Northstar Performance if I could verify any good experiences with them. Any experiences with this company at the above link? Thanks!
