Question about 1999 Cadillac DeVille
The car will periodically stall at idle (lights and stop signs) and the oil light will come on when it does, its fine while driving, the car used to overheat but the mechanic replaced the hoses and its fine now, but the car still smokes after you drive it for awhile, and it smells like burning antifreeze.
Sound like the overheating of the engine did some internal damage. ethier an intake or head gasket or maybe even a warped or cracked head. worse case senero would be a cracked block. check the oil see if it looks milky like a grey sludge. most likely it is a head gasket. have a leak down test preformed to confirm. the labor for the head gaskets is 9 hours for 1 or 11.5 for 2. I would replace both and have the mechanic check the heads and block for cracks while he has it apart.
