Question about 1996 Cadillac Eldorado

1 Answer

Hi I have a 96 eldorado and I have a leak problem. A few days ago when my girl friend was driving my car she called me up and said that the car was blowing smoke on the dash board. I took the car home and I notice this coolant by the passenger side on the matt... and smoke is coming out from the dash board and I think most of my coolant was on the ground.

This sounds like the heater core radiator has a leak. After disconnnecting the negative battery terminal and draining the coolant, you will have to perform the following:
1) disconnect the heater core hoses.
2) remover right side sound insulator and glove box module.
3) Remove the programmer shield, if equipped and disconect the air mix valve link.
4) Detach the programmer vacuum and electrical connectors.
5) Remove the heater core cover, leaving the programmer attached.
6) Remove the heater core retaining screws and the heater core.
7) Take the heater core to a radiator shop for repair and re-install.

1997 cadillac eldorado running hot


Make sure you put in the correct temp thermostat. GM usually has 2. A low temp and a high temp. Most shops will give ya the high temp just because thats usually what the book calls for. you might want to try a low temp. Also, sometimes, when a car runs hot and everything has been repaired....well, almost everything......it might be the head gaskets. And those my friend are no easy task. But..somewhere to start. have your cooling system pressure tested. Only way to really know for sure. Oh..also make sure your fan is working!!!! You might have a faulty fan switch.

My 96 Eldo Norstar is overheating only when I idle. Pressure is good. No leaks but it needs fluid every other day or so. What could be the problem?


if you dont have external leaks.check crank case oil if it look like milk shake you have a head gasket leak or intake.you can lose coolant if you got a small intake leak the antifreeze leak in combustion chamber burn with gas.if all good .you have more water than antifreeze water will evaporate away causing low coolant then it will over heat.

96 Ford Taurus GL Revving problem when stop then go


Did you check the transmission fluid again. You could have a major leak. Or reving the car up so high it started to burn the clutches in your transmission, resulting in replacing the transmission. Always check the fluid. A few dollars for fluid is better than 1500 bucks for a new tranny
