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.

First check for any leakage from your radiator, hoses or overflow tank.

If it were a freeze plug you'd not be able to miss the puddling spillage. Where if it were a head gasket the coolant and fuel / oil would mix and you'd be driving a mobile smoke generator { very noticeable while smoke }

If you can't see the leak take it in for a coolant system pressure test. Which will pinpoint where your vehicle is losing coolant.

It's a crankshaft position sensor. the sensor itself is located right under your oil filter ans the wiring runs back up behind the top of the motor.

Coolant leak


You should be able to, so yes. If you have a coolant leak the pressure will build and slowly decrease or it will not get to the correct pressure. Unless the leak is in the radiator cap itself as the pressure tester generally uses a different cap.
