    '97 question(s) please assist

    do all 97's have airbags in front seats? I just bought a 97 all recalls have been done, what else should I be looking for as far as problems? Hopefully none, but I have read all the materials I could find. Thanks for any input offered!

    1. The Engine oil cooler, its underneath the intake manifold of the engine; and uses engine coolant to cool it... it can crack in some cases and oil gets into your coolant. Good to keep a watch on everything as long as you own the car.

    2. Alignment: Tyre wears inside of the tread line. Apparently it can be a warn out lower bushing in the front lower control arms.

    3. A/C Problems... Compressor can seize and well there goes your AC and belts.

    4. Emission control equipment (i.e EGR, o2 sensors)

    5. Valve cover gaskets

    And as far as I know, Side airbags were introduced from 1999-2001

    I just bought a 97 too. I found 2 recalls today. One is the side airbag recall and the other is an ABS break recall. I'll post the text with the references when I get to my other PC. Google search:

    "1997 Deville" recall or recalls

    That's how I found it. How many miles do you have on yours? Mine has 69k now, had 67000 when I bought it last month. Really love it.

    You can check to see if you have side airbags too, the front seats have plastic covers on the left side of the driver side, and the right side of the pass. They say airbag on them...
