How important is the oil cooler on the cateras and what does it serve? Is it hard to change


The oil cooler is integrated into the engine and cooling systems and is an important part. There is a new design oil cooler and install kit which replaces the original part that had many problems. It's located on top of the engine and should only be replaced if you are very mechanically inclined. The cooling system and oil must also be flushed if there has been an oil cooler failure. Good luck.

Why is water resevoir keeps getting contaminated,oil cap is clean ,car isn't smoking,look's like gunk in it .


oil is getting into the cooling system through the oil cooler. the oil cooler is located under the intake manifold. After replacing oil cooler you need to flush the cooling system several times to remove all of the oil sludge

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.

Where are the hoses that run to radiator to cooling system located? send diagram. Oil went into water tank on 1998 cadillac catera


I don't have a diagram, but your problem is the oil cooler underneath the intake on top of the engine. Remove the intake, and the cooler is right there in between the heads. Easy to change once you get the intake off. This is a VERY common problem on Cateras, and the symptom of it is oil in your coolant. I have a 1998 Catera and had the same issue.

2001 cadillac catera: oil in coolant?


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.

I have oil in my radiator.


If it's red oil it will be a problem with your transmission oil cooler core, inside radiator side tank.
If it's black or engine oil, this is more serious, it can be a number of things.
Most common is a faulty head gasket.
