A engine in your 97 cadillac deville with the northstar engine and you need a new one is there a different engine you could put in it other than a northstar with out aluminum heads?
HEY THERE, I HAVE A 96 DEVILL WITH THE NORTHSTAR ENGINE IN IT. THE HEAD GASKET HAS BEEN DAMAGED SO I ORDERED THAT HEAL A SEAL OFF THE INTERNET AND INSTALLED IT MYSELF, ITS BEEN SIX MONTHS AND A LOT OF TRAVELING OUT OF TOWN NUMEROUS TIMES. IT COSTS ABOUT 159.00 BUT ITS WORTH IT.
BACK TO YOUR QUESTION THOUGH, I ALSO HAVE A 1990 CADI SEVILLE WITH A 4.5 V8 ENGINE IN IT, I HAVE SEEN A 96 AND 97 DEVILLE WITH THE SAME ENGINE IN IT. A FRIEND OF MINE HAS A 95 WITH THAT ENGINE IN IT ALSO. HOPE IVE BEEN SOME HELP. THESE CARS ARE GREAT CARS BUT WHEN IT RAINS IT POURS HUH. LET ME KNOW YOUR OUTCOME.
I have a 94 deville concourse which was originally equipped with the 4.6, but it has a 4.9 in it. So I guess somewhere along the way a different motor was dropped in.
There are two engines types for the 1996 Cadillac Deville. The 4.9 L and the 4.6 L Northstar. The 4.9 L engine's starter is accessible from under the car like most cars. The 4.6 L Northstar however, hides the starter underneath the intake manifold. I just recently changed mine. It took about 8 hours for the entire job. I think it would have been 6 if I was mechanically inclined.
