Found this on a Cadillac Forum. I was wondering what everyone thinks. Is it accurate or are there some recommendations that we should avoid?

Some of the information is irrelevant as it refers to older versions of Cadillac engines. Even though it says the information is for the Northstar 4.6 engine, it often refers to the 4.1, 4.5, and 4.9 Cadillac engines as well, so be careful not to misinterpret. In example, the LD8 version Northstar we are familiar with on the forum, the antifreeze is not green and there are not spark plug wires as referred in the article. Overall, it seemed pretty good though. Some of the article was spot on, while some was pretty vague and possibly opinionative.

No, that info applies to Northstars only, but there have been several updates. The 04-05 N* looks nothing like the 96 N*....
