    My 1998 Cadillac Catera was leaking antifreeze and there was no sign of a leak for several weeks...then it starting leaking out  and I was told I needed a new manifold....When  the garage began pulling the engine apart they found an oil leak in the head gasket and I was advised to get another car, which I did.

Got an oil change, now leaking transmission fluid and transmission is slipping

Forget an oil change

If you got the trans fluid changed & it was
filled to the correct level with the correct
fluid & now slips,it was slipping before &
now the new fluid made it worst

If that is the case it has to come out & be rebuilt

They only last about as old as you car is,12 years
is longer than hardly any trans goes,mostly because
most people never change the fluid,at least you tried
to save it.

If it leaks then it either was or the pan wasn't put on
with the correct gasket & now leaks,is low on fluid &

Stop using it until topped off & then fixed correctly

You have oil leaking into the antifreeze and if this is happening you also have antifreeze leaking into engine oil could be head gasket or intake manifold gasket or cracked engine block Has the engine over heated resently at any rate antifreeze in the oil is vary bad and will distroy the engines oil ability to lubericate the engine parts

Where do I ad transmission floid ta a cad catera

These transmissions are sealed units and do not have a dipstick..there is a plug on the side of the transmission underneath for service, but you don't add anything if you don't have a leak. I have a 1998 Catera.

My 98 cadillac catera started spitting and pouring oil really bad and i can't find out where it is coming from

If you can't see the oil, wait for the engine to cool, with the key out of the ignition and the battery preferably disconnected for safety, feel for the oil leak. There are a great many places that oil can be coming from, but large leaks tend to start at the pan or the heads.
