my car has oil in coolant reservoir but does not misfire, just took it to the mechanic to check it out.
All at one time radiator cracked on upper drivers side,replaced with new one,oil cooler leaking and replaced with new one,heater control valve was leaking and replaced with new one,thermostat stuck shut had to replace.replaced intake gaskets etc.Now the car runs rough engine shakes and wont idle correctly.any ideas anyone...help,,email@example.com if you have any answers to my new problem..Also went for oil change a year ago once they lifted the car on the rack we heard sounds of something hitting the concrete,both back springs had busted and fell out so i replaced them.replaced relay that controls the radio..replace both front tie rod stabilizers.i think thats what they are called,but they are bad again after a year..car had 4 wheel alignment and still goes thru tires fast so i have replaced all 4 of them twice in the last 3 years.. what a money pit..i think Cadillac needs to pay us to keep these cars up and running since it is their car that has so many issues..
