Just a short note to thank the people on this forum for helping me to repair my 97 STS. I'm not sure of the name of the person who originally psted the thread, but it was related to engine overheating issues. I was convinced that I was going to have to have my cylinder head gaskets replaced, or purchase a rebuilt engine, because it would'nt stop overheating! I then saw the thread about cleaning out the coolant purge line on my engine, I found that mine was plugged solid. I cleaned it out really well, flushed the cooling system for good measure, and my car has run fine ever since, 2 months now! Thank You Guys Again.

Cool, I got a 97 sts too. I'm new to this forum, so I'm looking forward to being educated by these caddy gods... I'm just a rookie though.

People must understand the HG issue is really way exaggerated for what it is. These engines do not experience the issue at a rate greater than any other engine. Is just that most people purchasing a "too good to be true" car get burned because the previous owner is passing the issue to a soccer and they are very vocal about it. Question yourself why would you be lucky to find such a great deal and why would the seller be so stupid to sell that great car for such a low price.
There are typical issue I see with these cars: ELC, struts, electrics (generally the cars after a certain age and mileage have bad shape suspension and that's expensive to fix) but always the engine works great.
