I bought a 1997 Cadillac Catera and the oil is milky looking. I am told it could be the head gasket. However it runs very rough and acts like it wants to blow up when pushed past 45mph. car not smokin


You should not be running it like that. The problem is the engine coolant is leaking into the oil. There is no doubt about that .The cause is a failed head gasket , cracked head or cylinder. You running the engine like that are putting bad oil into places that it is not supposed to be. Besides rust and overflow, you will cause excess wear.

Oil leaking from the top of engine and can see water in the engine(oil white)


Head gasket leaking. The cylinder head may need planing. Alloy heads will warp if the car has over heated.

Engine runs rough also how can you check to see whether if i have a blown head gasket. it also has no fans running to cool the coolant


Sounds like the overheating condition has blown the head gasket, if compression or oil/antifreeze mixing is evident.

Running an engine with no fan to cool the radiator is a common cause of blown head gaskets. yes.

Oil is leaking into the coolant system


Your Engine has a blown Head Gasket or a Head Gasket leak. The Head Gasket is a Gasket between your Cylinder Head and Engine Block. You will need to remove the Cylinder Head to replace the Gasket. If you decide to get it repaired, it is best to get a few estimates, or take it to your trusted Mechanic.

Valve train ticking noise 1997 cadillac catera


The cats use hydraulic lifters. Just before your next oil change, or when you are down about a litre of oil, put a litre of transmission fluid (Dextron II) into the engine and drive it about 2to 300 miles and then change the oil and filter. You should hear the valve train noise dissappear within the 1st 20 or 30 miles.

Do not overfill!!!!!

This is assuming you have a plugged hydraulic lifter(s). If you have a worn cam or worn valve train, you need to remove the heads (both) and send them to a machine shop that does heads and re-install...new head gaskets, valve cover gaskets as well as any worn cams. valves etc....

Car really has to be worth it. At this point, if you love Cateras (I have 2 2001's), I would sell it the way it is and get a 00' or an 01'.

The 97' and 98's are not worth the trouble.......

1998 Cadillac Catera can't tell if it is the engine oil cooler or a headgasket but oil is mixing with coolant and coolant and oil, what would be a sign if it is engine oil cooler


If you have a head gasket problem, you should see dense white smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe if you have antifreeze (ethylene glycol) in the cooling system, especially right after starting the engine.

I have a 1999 cadillac catera and there is water in my oil.


There are a couple of possibilities here.

Head gasket is leaking or

Engine oil cooler is leaking.

Both are expensive and quite a bit of work.

If you are planning on fixing the problem yourself, you will want to buy the haynes manual for your vehicle.

Even if you are not a mechanic, it is worth buying the manual for your vehicle. It has a lot of reference material and sometimes it will help your mechanic to fix your vehicle faster.

If you need more help, post a comment.

Thanks,

Tim
