    Re: High Mileage Northstar Thread: Who can beat me?

    I am going to replace the plugs when I recieve the valve cover gaskets within the next week. I did replace the air filter with a Fram extra Gaurd
    I did check the F/P regulator and there was no fuel in the vacum line so I just marked that off of the list.Now as for the gas I have been tying to run Exxon regular for about 90% of the time. If I am in town that is all I will get and from the same station.When i make the trips to the eastern part of NC I try to get most of my gas from Sheetz. I really think that all the 10% Ethonal that is in gas is what is killing gas mileage!

    I got 174,xxx on my 99 deville and with some luck I'll give drivendivelle a run for his money. But to be honest its not fair he got a head start on me.

    Wow good to see these cars are racking up big miles okay my turn my 5 devilles

    1997 cadillac deville d'elegance: 220000 miles motor replaced at 160000 miles

    2000 cadillac deville: 205000 miles

    2001 cadillac dts: 165000 miles no problems

    2001 cadillac dts: 110000 miles getting the motor studded at the moment (this ones caused me more headaches then the others combined)

    2004 cadillac dhs: 60000 miles this one has been the most reliable hands down but then again it's very low milage

    As you can see I love devilles I wouldn't drive anything else I test drove a xts just isn't the same I like my devilles more. These cars are reliable if you take care of them if you don't that's when you start getting problems with them.

    You have me beat:

    2001 Deville 169K I did the head gaskets earlier this year with Norms inserts

    2001 Deville (a twin for above) 139K

    2005 Deville (Mary Kay pink) 90k

    Also had a 1998 Deville (replaced head gaskets) and a 2002 Deville with only 50k on it, traded it for the 2010 DTS Lux. Great car, doesnt feel quite like the older Devilles do though.

    Re: High Mileage Northstar Thread: Who can beat me?

    I have a 2000 Deville with 228,000 miles on her. I do have some significant problems, however, and I am reviewing if it will be cost-effective to replace the transmission and motor. I've found a shop that replace them for 1,500

    For the past 10k, the transmission overdrive solenoid has been out (throws a code on the dash)
    I was informed by my mechanic that I have a 6 inch crack in the block, which he felt was likely from a pothole. He said that this was not all that uncommon. I never ran it hot, though it did momentarily spike, before I could get off the highway (Camel mode never came on?!?), and now I also apparently have a blown head gasket. I replaced the thermostat, which may have been sticking, and caused it to run hot/hotter before replacement. She runs kinda ruff, but still chugs along, and I can drive around town - at least during the colder weather. If I am faithful to make sure the overflow tank is full, I can drive about 40 miles on the interstate, though it sometimes starts to climb going over a mountain that I go over. I am pretty sure that she will begin to consistently overheat when the weather gets warmer. I am blowing gas into the coolant (verified at a radiator shop) but it seems to be clearing off the excess heat, at least for now.

    Bless you drivendeville. You must be a very very good driver. In my 53 yrs ive never been inside my car during an accident. There are several skill and detail categories in which you must be adept. It would be interesting to hear your suggestions on clean livin' behind the wheel, as well as the zen of keeping the machine together.
