Question about 1999 Cadillac DeVille
I have a 1999 cadillac deville with the northstar motor. Every once in awhile when i stop at a light white smoke comes out from both sides under the hood, whats the cause of this? Every once in awhile it overheats also but these things never happen at the same time? Ive replaced the thermostat and for awhile it stopped overheating and now its juts every once in awhile it overheats. Is the two problems linked? I also have a major leak from my power steering pump when i got it i was told it was the upper power steering line i replaced it and it steal leaks just as bad, what could it be?

SOURCE: power steering leak
To try to find the leak, purchase a spray can of engine cleaner and spray the entire area of the pump and hoses. Then wash off with a garden hose. Fill pump reservoir with fluid. Have someone turn the steering wheel while you look in that area of the pump and hoses with a flashlight for the leak. Be careful of rotating fan and belts!

it sounds to me like the car is in need of a mojor flush and possible fan swith temp module. that could cause the radiator cap to over pressurize and shoot water out . can you give any more details? does it cool back off when you drive?
