    Slow Leak

    Hello everyone, I have a 1997 cadillac catera and i had a radiator leak and oil leak, so I went and got a pressure test at the local pep boys and they said i had a hole in the radiator. I replaced the radiator and now(week later) i see coolant on the ground under the car. Its not a lot but its like a small splash of coolant on the ground. Anyone know where the small leak could be coming from? I didnt replace the hoses so could that be the problem?

    Where could the oil be leaking from. Its maybe towards the front of the car, and its like a small splash. Any ideas? Any help would be great. Thank you!

    Your coolant leak is towards the rear of the engine on the passenger side, right? Heater control valve. Your oil leak would have to be put up and checked out.

    Im thinking it is in the front/middle. I replaced the hbv valve so i know that is not the case, i hope. Where is the heater valve located?

    Would anyone know the most common places oil leakes on the catera. I had the head gaskets changed about a year ago. Maybe the breather system is clogged causing the oil to seap from the gasket covers? I heard a lot about what the clogged breather system can cause. Thank You.
