what makes a 98 Cadillac Catera run hot

Asked by Mar 07, 2011 at 11:40 AM about the 1998 Cadillac Catera RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car runs fine its just the fact that i have to keep putting antifreeze in it because it keeps running hot. Can someone give me some info about this? What is it that i have to replace?

1 Answer

mine had done that for the past few years.. had it in the shop 2 times and each time after a few weeks it started it again. had a freind over and was looking at it and i told her that i opened the hood when i got hom to see if i saw anything and you could see moisture around the hose coming out of the radiator.. she replaced the hose and it still did it.. so i was saying are you sure it doesn't need a new clamp and she said no but to make me feel better she replaced it since it did look like the original one you had to squeeze to get off instead of the bolt to tighten.. and sure enough i haven't seen anything and the light hasn't cme on these past 2 weeks since the clamp was replaced.
