Hi everyone, my dad bought my 2000 catera two years ago he noticed it had a coolant leak and put in some bars leak, it seemed to work for a little over a year, but now a notice when a slow dripping coming from somewhere behind the engine area, and a little more when it gets up to pressure. Any ideas on what frequently goes wrong here, or if I should just use some more bars leak?

There is a real good chance the coolant leak is the heater control valve (HCV), a weak spot in Cateras. Search this site for more information on the HCV.

Agreed, and buy it on ebay. Much cheaper there.
