Question about Cadillac Escalade

1 Answer

My Cadillac escalade was over heating we added fluids when it cooled down. The truck loss pressure while I was driving it. We took the battery to advance to get a complete charge but as soon as we put the battery in and attempted to crank it the battery was drained again. We looked user the truck and seen what appeared to look like oil. All though it sounds like it want to turn over it has not. Someone said it was the starter because the battery is draining so quickly yet my oil is milky...I need answers. ...thanks

You said it was overheating and oil is milky, sounds like antifreeze in oil, possibly crack in head gasket.

SOURCE: Something is draining my battery on my 1998 Cadillac DeVille

I suspect parasitic draw. All vehicles draw some power from the batteries when the car is shut off. Certain accessories such as clocks, radios remote door openers and alarms always need power. The normal power used is called parasitic draw.

It is always a very low draw so it doesn't run the battery down. If you install accessories like shortwave radios or plug things like inverters and portable refrigerators into the accessory socket and operate them too long without the engine running you can drain your batteries to the point where the engine won't start. If there is an electrical short in the vehicle or a malfunctioning accessory it could be drawing much more than its normal load causing a drain on the batteries. If you leave your door open and the inside lights stay on all night you could drain the battery down till the car won't start.

Here's also a good resource for your car specifically on narrowing down the cause of the drain.

Sorry to say its your head gaskets. Probably from the overheating it wore out the gaskets. that milky stuff is your coolant mixing with your oil. Good luck. Suggest you take it to a pro. the gaskets are easy to change, it's everything else in the way to get to them that requires special tools and experience. Let me know how it goes. I have the same thing with my truck but not real bad. If your truck is running smooth and doesn't feel like its missing, or when your start it no puff of white smoke comes out your exhaust it's not that big of problem. if these are happening then i would get a quote.
