Question about 2001 Cadillac Catera
Have you checked the oil level since the oil change ?

It may just be a bad sensor. The pressure could be tested with a mechanical gauge, but the sensor is probably so cheap it's not worth paying a shop to do a diagnostic if you can replace the sensor yourself. If it's not a bad sensor the oil pump may be worn out, or maybe the engine bearings are worn. A thicker oil might buy you some time on it.

Check your fuses, also I'm nt sure if there is no spark at all or just not at the engine so I will suggest scecking to see if there is spark at the coil, if not check to see if the cil is getting power. if there is spark at the coil then check the lead wire. If no spark at coil but power to coil then it's time for a coil. Good luck and remember to rate all solutions you get, thanx.

The Problem, My friend, is a leaking oil cooler. this item is mounted, inside the engine, under the intake manifold. The cooler or the connections are bad. Coolant flows through the cooler, if it brakes then the oil will contaminate your coolant and make a mess.!! Have it checked. Must times is the seals at the pipe to cooler flange connector. will need new seals.. Hope this helps.

my husband did everything that everyone else did that had this overheating problem. It was so weird that my engine cooled at a light and heated up going down the road. I have a north star 4.6 engine and this is natorious for happening. my check engine light also came on and so I had a diagnostics done which told me my #1 injector wasn't firing , car ran like **** as well. After putting in a new water pump and plugs,ect. and realized injector was good a friend told him we could have a blown head gasket. So just to see if this was the problem I went to buy a bottle of glassbeads and the auto parts guy told us to purchase a bottle of BARS STOP LEAK BLOCK SEALER NOT RADIATOR BUT BLOCK SEALER $31.99 . He followed the directions and we waited 24 hrs. before driving it. What ever the problem was has stopped my car runs like brand new and I am loving it again. no over heating no injector problem, runs great.......I hope this helps. I know its probly a temperary fix but its a fix and now we know what the problem was. SASSY

I agree with the questions asked by c17hydro, but also keep in mind that if the new coolant hoses are springing new leaks in the body of the hoses (not at the connecting points), this would be due to excessive PSI build-up in the hoses and you may have a much larger problem. After the car has sat and cooled overnight, start the car with the hood up. IF after 3-5 minutes of idling, the coolant hoses build up pressure immediately (hoses are very firm), this may be due to exhaust fumes entering the cooling system, which is an indication you have blown a head gasket or cracked the cylinder head. Your car will still run, but it's performance will be very poor and sluggish.
