When you say key tumbler, are you referring to thr ign key cylinder, door , glove box or trunk cylinder. All tricky, most difficult--steering col lock cylinder. Steering wheel, signal switch, must come off.

How do you properly bleed air pockets from 1998 Cadillac Deville 4.6l Northstar?

The Northstar cooling system is self-purging. It's highly doubtful that you have an "air pocket" but if you must do something, take the cap off the surge tank and let the engine warm to around operating temp. If there are any bubbles they'll vent from the surge tank. Then replace the cap and you're good to go. But I'd be very suprised if you have an 'air bubble'. They just don't happen on the Northstar.

Where do you put the transmission fluid in 1998 Cadillac catera?

There is no dipstick to check the transmission fluid on a 1998 Cadillac Catera. It can be checked by opening the fill plug on the side of the transmission. If you are at that point you might as well change the fluid if you have over 70000 miles.
