2 Questions for Other V Owners

724 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Florian

This is my first posting and I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I have two questions:

1. I seem to be losing Engine Coolant but with no traceable (visible) loss. It occurs over a 2 to 3 month period. I have added one half container of engine coolant to top off the tank only to find that a month later it required more. My first question is: Is this normal? It was the summer months where I used the air frequently.

2. I am getting ready for winter and noticed the list of Winter Tires on the cadillacfaq site. I have it narrowed down to Blizzak LM22, Dunlop M30 or Michelin Alpin PA2. I am leaning toward Blizzaks but wondered if anyone has used any winter tires on the V's from previous years. Also, I was thinking of getting a tire/wheel package from the but notice they have only one wheel that fits the V. Does anyone know if there are other wheels that work with the V?

Thanks in advance.

There is a TSB on the radiator issue (check on the FAQ site).

With regard to rims, just do a search on this forum, there are a lot of threads regarding different rims people have had made etc. Also, you could always look for another set of stock rims here and on E Bay. Since a group buy just finished for the optional GM rims, I bet there will be a few people (myself included) who will be selling four stock rims in a few weeks.

BTW: Welcome.

For the rims, some of the guys have had CCW and HRE rims made in black and black chrome I think. Not cheap though.
