    Wouldn't know where to start to find them. It appears to be a motor that actuates a valve (?) just my shot in the dark. It looks like it's leaking out of the shaft at the back of the motor. It's just a drip per second right now.

    This would be much easier if I had a 3.2 haha. I googled the hell out of it and didnt find anything really...my advice would be, if you have time and a ride, to uninstall it take it to the caddy stealership and say hey...I need a new one of this haha.

    Can you find a part number on it anywhere?

    Re: Coolant leak

    Aux/Afterboil sounds good to me. Damn the engineers

    Site said $26.95 if you only pay for 1 vehicle.
