unfortunatly there is only one answer to this question and that is to take it to a dealership or some reliable mechanic. The car has to be on a hoist, and the complete motor and transaxle has to be removed. There is really no oil pan on the northstar. It is the upper and lower engine components that house the crank etc. Sorry about this one. I own a 94 and a 97 and the problem is the same for both of them . The 94 has cost me 3400.00 to complete, and it is going to be the same for the 97. The gasdket by the way costs 35.00. Go figure. The engineers at GM have this one worked out so their dealerships can count on one of these major repairs starting around 160,000 Kms.

How do you change the oil pan gasket on a 2002 Cadillac deville?

The dealership said the book lists it as a 5 hour labor job. Apparently they have to remove motor mount bolts and transmission bolts, literally lift the engine away from the framing in order to replace the oil pan and gasket. What a freakin nightmare! They estimated $2,000 at the dealership to do this repair. Luxury costs - a lot...

The first step in how one can replace a thermostat in a 2001 Cadillac DeVille is to remove the housing which surrounds the old thermostat. The radiator hose will need to be removed and drained and then the thermostat can be removed. Remove the old thermostat gasket and then insert the new thermostat as well as the new gasket.

How do you change a thermostat on a 1994 Cadillac Sedan DeVille?

If it's the base Sedan Deville with the 4.9 liter engine, not the Northstar, it is located on top of the driver side of the intake manifold. There are two small bolts that hold it in. Remove those, pull the housing off. The thermostat is directly underneath. You can then pull it up and off, you might need to use some force to pop it loose. After that, it's just reverse of the above to install the new one. Just make sure to use a new gasket and make sure that all of the old gasket is off of the thermostat housing and the intake manifold.
