DO NOT DRIVE the vehicle until you can confirm by VISUAL means the Coolant level in the System.
The coolant light coming on indicates, EITHER, Low Coolant level, or a Failure of the Coolant Level Sensor on the Surge [Expansion] Tank.
Also having refilled the Cooling system, and with the Engine running, LOOK for visible signs of a LEAK, on the Engine and Heater Hoses.

Radiator


Look for signs of coolant leakage on the garage floor, driveway or ground under your vehicle. Check the level of coolant in the overflow reservoir or inside the radiator by removing the radiator cap. The engine must be cool before the radiator cap can be safely removed. Inspect the radiator to find where it is leaking. There may be an obvious hole or other defect that is easy to spot, such as deposits of coolant and an orange or green discoloration. You can refer this link http://www.buyautoparts.com/radiators.htm to learn about radiator.

Oil pressure warning light is on and this oil is full


1) the oil light just came on, i checked it and it was fine. the garage said it had been serviced. looks like new oil on the dipstick too. I've already driven about 50miles since collecting my car and it came on tonight once i was stationary.

2) i am missing caps in the engine from the coolant tank and also another from somewhere i cant even recognise. its the opposite side, same place as the brake fluid reservoir!! can anyone identify this and also suggest somewhere for replacements??

Thanks

Where is the thermostat on the car and how can I replace it myself?


It depends on the vehicle. Thermostat is normally in the water pump housing. You can change it yourself but typically you will need to flush the coolant afterwards and/or burp the system due to air that will get into it when you change the part. I would recommend taking it to a local garage to have done. Part is about $45.00 and labor shouldn't be more than an hour plus a gallon of coolant.

COOLANT LEAKS ONLY WHEN CAR IS BEING DRIVEN. NO LEAKAGE ON GARAGE FLOOR. INTERMITTANT CONDITION. 2001 CADILLAC DEVILLE


From the way you describe it, It is likely the pressure cap on the surge tank (expansion/overflow coolant tank).
It is probably worn and no longer able to hold the pressure.
The cap is an inexpensive replacement so do this first.

Leaking coolant checked radiator hoses and


take a look at the waterpump, these cars have problems with waterpump leaking, take caution, the waterpump is driven by the timing belt,if that belt pops or jumps due to coolant leaking on it and causing it to fail,then you will have a costly repair,i belive its about $4,000 to fix, it will cause cylinder head valves to bent, have this coolant leak check asap.

Red light on and off on dash. shaped like radiator with arrow pointing down. what's this mean? don't have an owner's manuel.


It means that either the coolant level is low in the radiator OR sensor which causes that light to come on is bad. Check the coolant level and check for possible coolant leaks. Do you find antifreeze on the driveway or garage floor? If the coolant level is OK and no coolant is found on the floor where the car is parked, the sensor is bad. The coolant level sensor is located in the plastic coolant reservoir tank. It's easy to change and not expensive.
