View Full Version : Sign of upcoming headgasket problem?

I have an 01 Deville. Last night I could smell coolant near the drivers side of the car. I didnt see any visible leaks though. This morning I had a "Check Coolant Level" message. What could be the problem? Could this be a sign of bad things to come?

Crossover gaskets or water pump cover. You may have a water pump leaking also

Had the same problem on my '03. Turned out to be crossover leak. There was coolant on the trans right under the EGR. Fixed under warranty. If it where a HG you would not likely smell coolant.
