2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V General Discussion Discussion, Coolant loss... in Cadillac CTS-V Series Forum - 2004 - 2007; During the past year accumulating approximately 10k miles, the DIC has indicated "low coolant level" twice. Is this typical???

Re: Coolant loss...
Unfortunately, non Northstar Caddies seem to pick up this very bad habit from their N* counterparts when they are sitting together at the dealers lot. My Escalade has done this to me twice since Ive owned it as well.
Id look into the connection mentioned above as it seems the most likely cause. I just keep mine filled.
I had the same thing, two "Low coolant" messages in the past 3000 miles or so. I always top off the reservoir and forget about it because I have not noticed any fluid on the ground. I think I will check the radiator seam. Thanks for the tip!!

Hell, just reading the word "Northstar" make me want to leak a little bit.
I had my radiator replaced twice under warrenty. It seems they had a batch of bad radiators. When you rev to over 6,000 rpm it would create to much pressure on the radiator and start leaking at the bottom seam. Since the last radiator i have not had any problems.
I also had the same problem...began around the first 100 miles. Initial problem was a faulty hose clamp which just cracked Replaced that myself. Then had the leaky radiator. Didn't actually see it dripping but had loss of coolant. Dealer re-crimped the lower radiator and she's been good for the last 5000 miles. They said that if it leaked again, then they would replace the radiator. Like stated previously...lots of faulty V radiators out there. As well as "faulty" differentials..but we won't go there
