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.

I have a 2001 Cadillac Catera that the oil light and alarm has been coming on when I come to a stop or slow down after driving the car for about an hour. Had the oil change and that solved it for a few...

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.

Just replaced a 1998 catera engine now have no oil pressure was told i had to "prime the pump" how do i prime the oil pump?

The best way to prime the pump hoping that you havent ran the engine to long without oil pressure
is to remove the oil gauge switch ORoil light switch on the engine and get a connector with the correct thread to screw into the block and fit a hose to it and to a 1/2 ltr oil can pump oil in as hard as poss and then turn engine over IN REVERSE(Backwards) 3 times and then (pumping every time) refitswitch and start it should be ok....

Is the oil pump internal or external ?

On every reciprocating engine I have ever seen in a vehicle, the oil pump is located at the lowest point of the engine and submerged in oil in the oil pan which is the lowest part of the engine and is mostly rectangular in shape. Once oil has circulated to the moving parts it flows by gravity back to the pan to be pumped again through the oil filter and into the engine.

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.
