Where's the radiator flush valve in the 2000 cadillac cater?


Dont flush untill you have removed the heater control valve because it has a piston and diaphragm setup vacuum on the line will cause the diaphragm to expand and not close causing the valve and hose to fail no matter how tight you clamp it. heater control valve is located at rear of engine bay passenger side near heater core hoses.

Coolant leaking, apparently at heater core where


You could but it is a tricky job as you need to take a good part of the dash apart. I wouldn't bring it to the dealer unless you have cash to burn. The part will probably be a couple hundred and then 3-4 hours labor or so. Probable plan $600 or so.

Cold weater start problem. Oil smoke in from the heater vent.


The same problem happened to me and it turned out to be my heater core.

Normally smoke will come from the heater core when it needs to be replaced.

Also the smell is most likely anti-freeze and and you normally smell it when your
engine is running warm or hot.

Check your coolant levels to be sure. and the hoses leading to your Heater Core

heater cores for that vehicle normally run $180 - $230 and you need to remove your
entire Instrument Panel (IP) (Dashboard) to replace it.

I hope this helps!

Car leaking coolant


First of all ensure that your car is leaking coolant fluid, and what is dripping is not just water condensation from the air conditioner.
If you have a coolant liquid leak, it can be from one of the ducts leading to radiator , from water pump or radiator itself. Check liquid levels, and if you have a leak have the car inspected by a qualified mechanic.
A broken water pump, for example, can cause your motor to blow in few miles.
