Question type: Maintenance & Repair

White smoke out the exhaust pipes is always burning coolant. Your Deville is prone to failed headgasket issues, so it doesn't surprise me. Your in for a nice repair bill.

Thats what i thought there is a water leak that was never fixed right when my ex wife had it but i love my caddy n so does my sons you think its worth it to keep it honsely


Looks in nice shape, get some quotes on the repair and decide. Ballpark will be $2000-3000. The car is currently worth $3000 in nice running condition. Once you tell someone it has a headgasket issue, forget it. But if you plan on keeping it many years and like it, then repairing would be an option.


I'm in Brooklyn and have a 00 deville. I be in Jersey a lot also and I be reading about how ppl be making it sounds like a head gasket job is like the end of the world like it cost a fortune. In this day and age that shit ain't about nothing. My man Mark in Newark,nj the best caddy man around. That's all he works on. Cadillac that's it. HG $700 and I know a spot in Brooklyn $600 and it's all official. The value of them caddys go down just like the maintenance cost. That's why it's good to be about that life and be about those streets. Lmmfao
