Having problems with your 1998 Cadillac DeVille ?
1998-Deville-Northstar Engine. Just had my radiator, water pump, and thermostat replaced. I parked it in the driveway and when I came out, there was a puddle of red, rusty looking water under the right front tire. I drove it and it got to 242 degrees and started reading "Check coolant level" There was also a maple syrup kind of smell. What could the problem?
Hi, There are two metal pipes on that side of the engine that supply coolant to and from the heater core. One or both of the pipes may have rusted through. Need to pressure check cooling sysem and visually check.
