SOURCE: ENGINE TURNS OVER BUT WONT START
How do you know you dont have spark? Are you using a spark tester? Try holding a spark plug wire about a 1/4" away from a good grounded bolt or screw with a pair of rubber handled pliers, while somebody cranks the engine, watch and listen for the spark to jump the gap. I think you have spark, but maybe the electronic fuel pump in side the fuel tank crapped the bed.

THIS SOUNDS CRAZY BUT, ON SOME OF THE OLD SCHOOL CARS, THEY HAVE A CLUCH FAN.. AND IF ITS BAD, THE CAR WILL OVERHEAT WHEN DRIVING AND COOL DOWN AT IDLE.. I DONT THINK THE CADY HAS A CLUTCH FAN, BUT I BET ITS IN THE FAN.. GOOD LUCK KEITH..

First do you have a sterring wheel puller. Can't remove the steering wheel without one. Quite an involved job including snaking the electrical connector end through the steering column. I wouldn't recommend it to the novice

There's a blower motor (fan) under the hood and up against the firewall near the center of the car that takes some work to remove. It has gone out in the last 2 of my 4 Cadillacs. Turns out if you're not real careful with the positioning of the spark plug wires they will brush up against it, and if one of them gets cracked or brittle it will "arc" and short out the blower motor. The a/c compressor should still come on (you'll hear a click when it engages) but you won't get any air blowing into the cabin, hot or cold.
The part was like $200 stock (year 2000 prices) and it took about an hour to remove it. My Caddy at that time had this damn strut bar going across the engine bay which we eventually removed to get to the blower motor.
