  • I know that lately, we've gained a lot of new members which is awesome and a lot of those new members are coming from other forums that may use vBulletin and their Private Message (PM) system. Here, we use the XenForo forum software which is (IMHO) much better than vBulletin. The "Conversation" system here is the same as the PM system on vBulletin. So if you want to PM another member, just click their username in a post, and click on "Start Conversation". To see all of your PMs, click on your profile and go to Inbox. Hope this helps.

ATS issues

V-Series Cadillac(s)?
'11 V Wagon, ( '13 427 Vette & '14 ATS)
Not the V version as I have the ATS Premium edition of the 2014 ATS. It has the 2.0 T engine and AWD. It got a little over 72,000 miles on it now and, up until this past month, totally reliable. A month or so ago, I noticed coolant on the garage floor intermittently. I added some coolant and the leak got worse. Then I noticed the hint of an oil leak mixed in with the coolant. Time for a trip to the dealer.
They found the rear water outlet and surge tank hose leaking coolant. They found the oil pan and front engine cover leaking.
The cost of the parts (gaskets, seals, coolant, oil, etc.) wasn't so bad - about $500. The cost of labor was eye opening - ~$3000. Ouch.
Now it's time to find out if resealing the engine is good. My wife and I are going to drive the ATS to Arizona next week and visit the south rim of the Grand Canyon.
I can't believe that the ATS started leaking oil and coolant at the same time and the cost of repairing it!
