Question about 1997 Cadillac Eldorado
Your water pump may be getting ready to go out or your timing chain may soon break. Often the first problem can lead to the second problem. (not neccessarily at the same time) Check your radiator hose after idling a couple of minutes from cold startup. Shut off the engine, raise the hood, and carefully (making sure that you don't touch anything that may have become too hot) squeeze the hose that connects to the radiator. If it feels very flimsy, soft, or appears to be abnormally larger than further down the length of the hose you may just need to replace the hose. Make sure that the hose clamp is snug. Check your coolant level, if coolant is needed be sure to add the same color coolant that is already in your radiator. Mixing coolants can lead to much bigger woes in a short amount of time.
