What could cause a antifreeze leak when the car is turned off on a 1999 Cadillac Catera?
Check it when it is cold. If it smokes white smoke when you start it, you could have head gaskets leaking.
the pressure is still existant in the radiator..
Usually when the car leaks water when it is off it is because the water pump is weeping.... Starting to go out, you need to replace it
I have had a lot of experience with this one. The design of heater control valve is flawed. The valve snaps together and after a while the pressure in the coolant system will push the top up just enough to leak. As the inner spring gets weaker it leaks more. The replacement valve cost me less than $100 at Advance Auto and took about 2 hours to replace. The valve is located against the firewall on the passenger side of the car.

1997 Cadillac Catera Help Most cars have two radiator hoses. One is the upper hose (Usually located towards the top front of the cars engine and sometimes easier to see and get to to replace) and the second located below it toward the middle or side of the engine.

2001 cadillac catera What would cause a coolant low light although the tank is filled to cold line and the engine is not over heating?
Bad head gasket. Not compression side but the outer side. Get K+W block sealer and follow the directions EXACTLY. I have had fantastic results from this product. There may be a leak at the heater core inlet. There is two smaller hoses that divert radiator water to and from the core and sometimes the brass necks break and cause small leaks. Y-THINK-Y Could quite likely be a bad heater control valve ( known to go…

Will a bad mass air flow sensor cause the transmission light to come on and the car to rev up but be very slow until up to speed I have a 97 Cadillac Catera?
If it is motor oil in the anti freeze, then it is either a cracked head, cracked engine block, or a head gasket blown. If it is transmission fluid in your antifreeze, then the radiator is leaking from the transmission cooler ----- although usually that would cause antifreeze to be in your transmission fluid.
