The heartache of blown headgaskets.man, someone had to give that up for $600. that blows.
Check out CUSTOM INNOVATIONS on Ebay, they are bar none THE BEST choice for Northstar motor swaps. As you may or may not know, Northstars are notorious for bad headgaskets if the coolant is not maintained properly (Im assuming this is what happened to your car, unless it really just blew apart inside for some other reason). They are also known for very leaky case half seals which can leak enough oil to cause damage to the engine.hi everyone. 1st post here. great site, lots of info. i just bought my first caddy, 96 eldorado. i paid $600 for it. the motor is blown and the passenger window needs help but other than that it all works. ive searched and read alot but would just like to ask what everyones opinions are on what would be the best motor choice for a replacement. like is one year better than another when looking at problems such as leaky block halves or other problems. my motor is a y motor. what mileage should i limit myself to? i guess thats really my main question/concern right now is just the motor. thanks for sharing your knowledge and opinions.
