Coolant level coolant running out of reverse

Asked by Feb 04, 2018 at 11:59 PM about the 2004 Cadillac CTS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

No no coolant on floor board doesn't even smell. Fog on
windows some what but I can see. . When I looked can't
see any coolant like on motor or anything. I thought was
just low. Or maybe it's not full. When you fill it reverse
should fill up when full. Not leaking. But I got car had for
year now . New  motor new tranny just changed spark
plugs.   Oh has no pressure when taking cap off after
running. But that might be the way it is. Eats up oil  but
seems like no pressure.  But just started today and it was
raining out all day water puddles  splashing figured engine
was wet. But everything's new in car. Candy dealer put
motor and tranny in before I bought. Hope it's something
cheap

Well first I would start with a old cheap test buy some food coloring and add it to your fill tank, warm the motor look for the food coloring if you see it you found the leak, if not I would do a compression test many times if you can not see it ? it just might be a blown head gasket if you can not do the test? (best thing) then there is one other test pull spark plugs and check many times if you blow a head gasket 1 or more plugs will be wet? and even worn excessive more then the others, and depending on year I understand this is a cad? some years of cads had aluminum blocks and heads they were common to blow gaskets, and warp heads
