SOURCE: 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.

Oil in coolant problems on my 2001 cadillac catera?

Sounds like the head-gasket blew and allowed oil into the coolant and coolant into the oil. Unfortunately, it's time for a tear-down and rebuild of the engine.

My 2001 catera shuts off at random and the "s" light starts blinking?

The 'S' you discribe must surely be the Sport Mode on light, which is turned on and off by the button on top of the shift lever. Must likely problems with a battery issue like that would probably be an alternator problem, or simply a poor electrical connection.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

1998 Cadillac Catera can't tell if it is the engine oil cooler or a headgasket but oil is mixing with coolant and coolant and oil, what would be a sign if it is engine oil cooler

If you have a head gasket problem, you should see dense white smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe if you have antifreeze (ethylene glycol) in the cooling system, especially right after starting the engine.

2000 catera oil is geting in the cooling

If a mechanic putting the coolant back in after arepair didn't do it then the oil cooler connection in the raditor can fail but the head gasket can be leaking too. Check for coolant in the motor oil tooas his will tell about the head gasket. The oil isundermorepresure than the coolant except then the car is shut off after fully warmed. No coolant in the engine oil. Flush the cooling system real good and install just water run the car and look for oil again if it's clean then put new coolant in it and don't ley the last person to work on it since this happened to work on it any more as someone could have added oil to the coolant not knowing about cars well enough or trying to cause problems on purpose.

Where are the hoses that run to radiator to cooling system located? send diagram. Oil went into water tank on 1998 cadillac catera

I don't have a diagram, but your problem is the oil cooler underneath the intake on top of the engine. Remove the intake, and the cooler is right there in between the heads. Easy to change once you get the intake off. This is a VERY common problem on Cateras, and the symptom of it is oil in your coolant. I have a 1998 Catera and had the same issue.

1998 Catera will not start if it sits overnight in cold weather

It can be worn distributor cap/rotor or coolant temperature sensor.
To check it leave car outside, try to activate if it is not use the hair fan and worm up the distributor cap area,distributor%20cap/shopping/allResults.htm
If it helps replace the distributor cap/wiring/spark plugs. If it doesnot help warm up the coolant temperature sensor:
and, if no help, spurk plug area.
Also good idea in cold weather use higher octane fuel or regular with octane booster or injectror cleaner added and ask the mechenic to put winter oil (less viscous) for winter time during oil change.
Good Luck

My car is leaking coolant. Also after it runs for awhile the idle gets low and then shuts off. Sometimes it cranks back on but shuts off again until it cools. Whats the problem?

my 2001 catera just had the same problem i had the crank sensor replaced car wont die so far no problems starting but it has a antifreeze leak in the bottom seal of the engine. I have heard this is due to the dexcool that the manufacture decided was better than reg antifreeze and the repair bill for the labor is crazy still havent changed the bottom seal yet
