Local shops are consistent at around 1750-2500 to swap the engine in this car. Project Status: Discontinued Project Started: Fall 2005 1. I'm sure you've read about miracle sealants that are designed for the Northstar and a bunch of other stuff on the market. I was at the dealer yesterday and was talking to a mechanic regarding an engine he was just finishing up on. Now, I can get my hands on an Oldsmobile 125,000 Kms 77,000 miles on it to replace the 401. They want a travelling car and i do not think this is the one.
If you are up to pulling the damper, replace the oil pump and, if you can, check the timing chain tensioners for wear. This is due to the troublesome head bolts. You should change your oil after overheating the engine. Is a 307 too small for the Caddy? A point of order: The 700, contrary to urban legend, is only available in 'Chevy' bell housings. It will check for exhaust gasses being present in the cooling system.
Many repair shops are capable of diagnosing a bad head gasket but not all of them know how to deal with the Northstar. If you are seeing moderate to heavy white smoke, don't try to start the car again- get to where you need to go and shut the car off. I strongly recommend - do them all, but who knows, he said they have been doing this for years and he is a dedicated caddy northstar mechanic???? My mechanic wouldn't take on a Timesert job because the local dealers hadn't had any luck with them, but some discreet comments a couple of years ago revealed that most techs did things like omit the template and hand-drill the tap holes and speed-drill in the taps, which is guaranteed to give you out-of-alignment, overheated, oversize threads for the Timeserts, and with 20 of them you are just about guaranteeing an early failure of at least one, quite possibly when you try to torque the head bolts. While your engine is out, you should consider replacing the oil pan gasket and the other gaskets that you can easily see, like the cam cover gaskets. It performs the following functions and more: — It monitors the On-Off pulses produced by the two crankshaft and one camshaft position sensors.

Here are the measurements of the Northstar trigger wheel: Most measurements taken from the trigger wheel are giving in a range because measurements taken at different points of the wheel yielded different results, this is due to machining tolerances of the wheel.
A new oil pan accompanied the oil pump. Your help would be greatly appreciated. He told me they only put in timeserts if aluminum comes out with the bolt. I think this is why some shops do not have good results. I strongly recommend - do them all, but who knows, he said they have been doing this for years and he is a dedicated caddy northstar mechanic???? I was hoping a head gasket replace while engine was in the car to be a viable cheap alternative.
Thanks again for the advice and help, robb. You have pretty much convinced me that that the inlaws should just write off this expensive problem. I hate the Facebook groups, it's a bunch of know it all loudmoith punks, I quit all the groups. Since then just about every Cadillac vehicle has had used them as their power plant. I would also take the opportunity to service the transmission. Able to put it back in park and start it with no problem richardkellum answered 3 years ago Well i have a 03 Cadillac deville while i was driving it shut of the shifter is in the console and i put it in park but in dash it still remain in drive and it will not start in drive but on the shifter it is in park but the dash say it is in drive can someone please help me. I realize this is some 8 yrs old, but I have specific questions concerning the syncronization process of the module probably not enough room to explaing here.
We were one of the first remanufactures in the country to offer remanufactured 4. I don't know of anyone here who has done it themselves according to instructions from Timesert who has had a problem, though. We have made multiple enhancements and longevity increasing upgrades to the original O. The exception was that the 4. This is too much money to gamble on a car that old. I've been told it's probably head gaskets.
They can assume headgasket all they want. But I don't have the resources to do an engine swap partially disassemble engine in the car is about it. It will be a 200-4R, and yes, the 307 or better yet 350 olds will bolt up. What is your intended use for vehicle daily driver, light towing, etc. Better to put that money into something dependable and perhaps a bit newer. It is the cheapest solution to try as we are only out a couple hundred dollars, some time and the car is in no worst condition after all is done? Ice had this problem intermediate for years and have replacement many things but I just figured it out this morning. When I remove the fuse panel one under the back seat, there is no sparks at the ground' When it is all put back together and I turn The key to the start possion, all the lights go out accept the check engine.

If you have coolant in your oil, stop driving, period. By the way, the heater pipes that wrap around the rear of the engine can leak, and the radiator end tanks can leak. Secondly, does any one know if the 307 will bolt on to the Cadillac Transmission? Repeat this process, monitoring coolant temperature.
