Re: 88 cadillac squirting coolant from bolt hole
That bolt hole apparently is passing into your cooling system (water jacket) , which is common.. To seal it, the bolt and hole must be clean and dry. Squirt or flush out with aerosol carb cleaner and while at the parts store pick up some Loctite brand Loc n Seal bolt thread sealer. The coolant level must be below the bolt hole or the sealer won't take. Put some on the bolt thread and install bolt and tighten. Give the sealer 30 minutes to set up and refill the cooling system. Loc n seal is the blue loctite and comes in a small tube. fill the threads but don't waste the expensive woder. It is a liquid and will spread evenly as you screw the bolt in. Done deal. Good Luck. - Ned

transmission lines to radiator is leaking. The radiator will help cool the transmission fluid in most vehicles, and these lines can get crimped or become loose during normal vehicle maintence. Replace the lines and connectors, and recheck transmission fluid level. MIght just be a loose connection you could possibly tighten up. Busted or cracked radiator?
Do you have one of those washers that wants to wsh the whole car for yu when you only need the window done? I am thinking it is in the switch that you push or turn to make it squirt. I will venture a squirt of WD 40 in the switch will solve this problem? Just something you can try, Please give me a good thunbs up for the guess if you please. I need the good marks, Let me know if it worked, Raz

i have a 1995 cadillac deville,and the computer used to say engine hot. Took it to my mechanic. Turns out it was the radiator was messing up and it was sending coolant to the transmission. Had it changed, and now it runs like new.
