SMOKES WHEN STARTING UP SOMETIMES - 1999 Cadillac DeVille

Answers :

If it is blue smoke, it is oil burning. If it only smokes after sitting, then it is a leaking valve guide(s). If it smokes randomly while running, you have leaking oil control piston ring(s). If the smoke is very heavy and white, that is coolant and your head gasket is the problem.

Also, when the coolent temp gets higher above 250,( we have been experiencing the car overheating, and have posted about that as well) it will stop blowing cool air. Charge is good on AC. No need to add freon.


When the cool air ceases, does any air blow? If your air flow ceases (the cooling fans run the entire time the A/C runs normally), your cooling fans might also be malfunctioning. How many times has your car overheated since the September 2008 head ... Cadillac DeVille
