    Same specs for our '97 Catera. Someopne told us it was leaking behind the engine, but we are unable to find it to fix. Not much room behing engine, and was trying to find some one or book to tell or show us how to get to it and with what tools, or if the engine had to be pulled to get to, as some one else suggested.

Have someone check the heater valve. Mine was doing the same thing and two people (Midas and local repair shop) told me it was the heater control valve and one told me it was the heater core. It turned out to be the heater control valve ($115 for part and $160 to put it in).

All Cateras run hot, comes with the car. I have been experiencing the same problem with mine. Although I believe that my thermostat is faulty. They had many problems dealing with the cooling system because of the whole dex cool issue but Check the thermostat to make sure it is opening and the test the heat sensor to ensure continunity. If you get past that you got me.

The fan wont turn off on my 1997 catera


wait 10 minutes after you shut the car off - then remove the negative side of the battery - wait 30 minutes then reinstall and run the car 30 minutes.
If your cooling fluid is full and other cooling systems are in place and working - you should be fine.

The fan on your cooling system is made to continue to run once the engine is shut down if it is running a little [ or a lot] hot. So don't panic if it runs 5 minutes after you shut the car off.

In my 1997 Cadillac Catera if I turn my lights, windshield wiper, or Air on the battery goes down slowly untill it dies...I have bought a brand new battery also replaced the altenator!! What else could it...


It sounds like the ground from the alternator is bad. Have the connections cleaned and restore the ground. if that doesn't work have the alternator tested. Sometimes they do fail straight from the shelf. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Have a 97 catera, cooling fan is always running, thinking that it may be the thermastat. if it is, where is the thermastat located? heat is warm, not hot.


if the cooling fan is always running its a temp. sensor you will have to consult a repair manual to find the correct sensor

Car leaking coolant


First of all ensure that your car is leaking coolant fluid, and what is dripping is not just water condensation from the air conditioner.
If you have a coolant liquid leak, it can be from one of the ducts leading to radiator , from water pump or radiator itself. Check liquid levels, and if you have a leak have the car inspected by a qualified mechanic.
A broken water pump, for example, can cause your motor to blow in few miles.
