Question about 1990 Cadillac Fleetwood
I just replaced the starter on my fleetwood and out of no where she starts smoking from the passenger side (engine). I parked the car and a large amount of radiator fluid began leaking. What does this mean???
How do i turn the heater on to a 1990 cadillac fleeetwood

This could be the radiator, a radiator hose, or a heater hose. The only way to find out is to fill the system, start it up and watch to see where it is coming from. It would help to purchase a small mirror at a auto parts store that can be moved around the leak area to hopefully give u a view of the source of the leak. I don't think this is the water pump, as they usually begin to leak slowly and get worse over time, not a 'gusher' like u described. The white smoke is the coolant escaping in vapor form, or/and coolant coming in contact w/ the hot exhaust system. U won't harm the engine if u fill the system before checking, and turn it off before the temp. gauge rises past the normal range. If u can't find it in that time, let it cool down, and refill system, and repeat your detective work. U might also want to raise the front end (ramps or safety stands, and check from underneath for leak source. Let me know what u find.
