    Are you leaving a spot where you park? If yes that will indicate a leak if not then it is your temp sensor is failing

    If there is no leak look in radiator see if there is oil sounds like a head gasket leak

    yup what osure said is exactly what i was gonna say sounds like your on your way to a blown head gasket my friend. Its not bad though i mean i have had mine for five years and i have been burning antifreeze for 2 yrs so when its down i fill it up same with oil.

    You are right it isn't good on motor but you could run that way for a short while but motor will prob. Start overheating then you create more issues

    Re: antifreeze/04 cadillac escalade

    and if you mean 02 yr the interior is different like little things like the dash cluster which i like the best out of any years also the 2 consoles one small one on top and your regular one have no idea why they got rid of thay feature or moved the SIC (Secondary Information computer) to on the dash its another thing i like right where it is way easiier to use while driving and bigger than the dash one where iits just where the odometer readout is. I mean from the inside of the 02 just little things like the dash cluster you can tell they were trying to make a statement because that thing just screams money but is the coolest out of all of them i actually have a pic of mine i was trying to send to a chick that just got an 04 EXT. They say its to big google it im sure someone has one online its just the little things that im gonna miss when i gotta get a new one. The only thing i couldnt really get in a new one to feel like mine is the SIC hahahaha
