Just brought this to my mechanic to check out after purchase. He found oil leak and said he wouldnt touch it and to just add oil as needed. Said he would have advised me never to purchase . Oh, well:(

Seeping oil from lower engine seal. Fix is to spend $3000 pulling the engine and replacing a $10 part or putting a $5 dollar quart of oil every so often.

On 5/23/14, I purchased from its owner, a 2001 Cadillac Eldorado ESC. I am having problems with the trunk. The trunk will not open with either the keyless remote or the button inside the car. When it was opening with these two methods a day or two ago, it would not always close. I can open the trunk with the key but I have a hard time getting it to close/latch completely. I tried 5 times yesterday to get the trunk to latch shut. I now have a car whose trunk I am afraid to use.
