Question about 2002 Cadillac Deville
I have 02 Deville, before i bought it the last owner took it to flush the radiator, it ran fine when i test drove it, car sat in my garage for about a week started to drive it and the radiator hose blew up, i replaced it, after that its been over heating so i replaced the thermostat filled it with dex-cool i could not find the drain valve so and radiator doesnt have a cap, so to try and fill it all the way i unhooked the hose close to the top and filled it, now the car is fine if is idleing but temperature starts rising past normal if i drive it and goes down if i let it idle for a minute or so, also noticed that there is a short hose that looks like its just to release preassure at the resivour tank and once it reaches normal temperature it starts leaking antifreeze from there, is it possible that when the previous owned had the flush done they filled it up with the wrong coolant and thats why it overheats???? also everytime i fill up the coolant, i see something that looks like hair or fuzz at the bottom of the resivour cap.
Maybe it is cloged up. also check the fans. and the thermastat. and temp sensor.
