Damn you're busy Joe. No shortage of blown HG's I see.

Joe, I'm curious... What is the average year range of the cars that people are getting fixed? Mostly 2000+? Or a mix of all years?

I'll bet he comes back with "98-99 mostly, but we do get a few from all years."

SWAG from the unofficial, non-scientific Northstar head gasket failure poll up there ^^^.

Actually I was kind of wondering how many people are still putting that generation back on the road as old as they are getting.

Well i am fixing my 99 deville, seeing how i have $2500 into it now, i figure i have to try and get it running as it has 78k on it and i loved the way it drove and the power it had, i have 650 into gaskets, Norms insert kit and a water pump. Please see my new thread asking for advise on how to proceed with my HG replacement. Have a great day,,Bill

I would say a low mileage car is worth the fix. But there are a lot of '99 and older Caddys out there with well over 150k on them that would still be great cars if fixed, but is it worth it on a car with high miles? I suppose it depends on your viewpoint. I suppose $2,500 to fix the only problem with a car that you know is still cheaper than buying another car.

If the car itself is in good to excellent condition, rebuilding the engine/transmission for $6,500 +/- sure beats $55,000 for a new (tacky looking) Cadillac.

Look in the blue banner at the top of the page for the private message link. It's pretty small, but it is there.
