Why my coolant fluid keep running out


After you put it, turn on the car and see if it's leaking. Car must warm up first. If you don't see it coming out that might be because its going into the engine. Shut car off and check motor dip stick. Make sure it doesn't have water mixed with oil.

Check engine light on,vsc and vsc off lights on. car runs good until engine warms up then runs bad. tapping comming from valve covers. already replaced spark plugs. mechanic said valves need adjusting....


Ask him how do you adjust hydraulic tappets which are self adjusting. It is more like failing hydraulic lifters that will not hold oil pressure as the oil thins out. Run fault codes to see what the sensor that has failed that causes the engine to run rough when it is warmed up.

My water is frozen in the radiator how can i dethaw it and can i crank my car to warm the motor


You can start the engine and run it to operating temperature and shut it off, wait for it to cool and repeat until the cooling system in thawed. I would bet that you now have a Cracked Engine Block now though. So keep an eye on your oil level and that there is no oil in the water.

I have a 96 cadillacsls that is over heating- no leaks but it is pouring out the over flow tube?


Did you over heat warning message come on " Urgent shut off engine" or check coolant message? My coolant message came on but once car warmed up, it was late summer. No leakage but coolant level was low; added some coolant. Then it happened again but once car warmed up the check message disappeared. Then a few days later I got the Urgent Shut off Engine message! Thankfully I was able to pull off road and shut down immediately. Had it towed to Caddy shop. My water pump had gone out. New Pump and replaced all hoses. Then a year later check coolant light came on again, once car warmed up, light went off. This time tho a small leak in the radiator. My husbank put in a new radiator. Car has 117K miles and a few weeks ago outside temp 35, running late for work and didn't allow car to warm up but just a minute or two and when I puled away the check coolant light came on; but once the car warmed up (temp gauge needle in center) the light went out. Being the car is 17 years old I try to treat her like a baby and not push her so I do let the engine warm up before driving away. Do you have to add oil between oil changes? This is normal for the Northstar engine; your regular garages or full service stations don't know this; also make sure if you aren't using an authorized Cadillac garage that they put the right amount of oil; they want to put less than what is required. Not sure if this is really a solution more comments than anything... :)

I over heated my van it shut it self off antifreeze every where changed the waterpump the two tubes from the pump and the thermosstart it dont over heat any more but the over flow bucket is always empty...


I'd watch to make sure water isn't getting into your oil.
If it overheated, a head gasket or warped head could allow water into the oil pan.

Water would seem to mysteriously go away.
Just make sure after adding lots of water that oil on the dipstick doesn't look like a chocolate malt.

Otherwise, a leak is somewhere else.
Heater cores, water pumps, and radiators need to be looked over for hairline leaks.

As more and more water has to be added to keep levels correct...problem will show itself soon.

Hope this helps...

Car runs rough after it warms up. new wires plugs and timing chain it acts like its runing out of fuel goes good for a few miles.then loose all power .runs good till it warm up


suspect is a head gasket leak I had this happen to me in a Honda crx that I used to own. Cheek your oil do a change your self and see if there is any water in the oil it will make it cloudy. As well change you radiator fluid see that there is no oil in that it will be very merky .If clean your lucky I would then change my fuel filter I might start here if you can hear any wining noises when you start up if not that do a compression test or double check the timing

If your oil pressure gets to low it can turn off the fuel pump. This may also have saved your engine. The ECM turns on the fuel thru the fuel pump relay for about 5 seconds. When engine is running oil pressure sender supplies the voltage to the pump. When engine shuts off check oil pressure and voltage to fuel pump.

I have milky oil in my motor


if your car ony doing short runs it builds up condensation and gives your oil milky effect
or there is water getting into it
solution give car a good long run and the water should evaporate when engine well warmed up
other wise check water level make sure not losing water in to engine oil

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.
