I've had to trace down small leaks like this and it was usually the small valve stems/seats. The ports where you install freon. These can be purchased at a parts store along with the small tool. Cost about $3 for all of it. The only thing is when you replace these the system has to be dis-charged into another system to prevent it going into the air. The valves can be replaced by you, but if you're going to take it to have it dis-charged, then I would just have them replace the valves.

98 caddy deville nothstar v8 how to replace heater coil have no heat and I'm loosing water somewhere

the heater core in a 1998 Cadillac is very tricky to replace.
start with getting a pressure test to determine where the exact location of the leak is, it may not be the heater core.
if you do decide to pull the dash apart to change the core make sure the battery is disconnected for at least an hour to allow the airbag system to discharge.

My ac went out on my 98 cadi deville a few month ago. It just tells us low refridge. we tried to put some more in and the gage to fill it up says it is still full. but since then my econ/vent; heater; rear...

on those caddys you disconnect the battery and wait a few seconds and reconnect and it will reset ac system. when it goes into service mode the system just shuts down. the battery procedure is how to reset. when the ac compressor is not engaging you will not get an accurate reading on your gauges. it might be low but the compressor must be engaged for the system to take more freon.

Adding freon to the air conditioning where does the freon go?

look for the thick pipes vs. the thin pipes and a quick connector that goes on to the hose that fills the r134a via a can of freon.

Or, do you mean, where is the freon leaking out of? The freon leaks out of o-rings, seals, and possibly the compressor.

I had a compressor changed in my 1990 Cadillac Deville because it was leaking there. This is a common problem on older cars.

Good luck.

1999 Caddy Deville A/C problem

A/C systems are hard to diagnose without having access to the vehicle. One of the most common problems is undercharge (Not enough freon in the system) indicating a leak somewhere in the system. Other causes could be a burnt A/C compressor clutch fuse, defective compressor clutch, defective compressor/belt, defective High/Low pressure switches in the system, defective evaporator icing switch, defective wiring... Basically, you're better off getting the system diagnosed by a good A/C knowledgeable mechanic...
