Low Coolant Or Loss On
1997-2001 GM 3.0L VIN R Engines
AERA Members have reported a low coolant or coolant loss on 1997-2001 GM 3.0L VIN R engines. This engine was used in the Cadillac Catera.
Customers may complain of low coolant light being on and or engine overheating as well. An oil cooler cover leaking due to an adhesion condition between the oil cooler cover and the engine block may cause this condition.
Remove the oil cooler cover from the engine and the old sealant from the engine block and the oil cooler cover. Use only a plastic or metal scraper to remove the old sealant residue. Clean both surfaces using a solvent that will not leave any residue on those surfaces.
Apply a .080 bead of sealant, Part #2378521 (Canada use Part @#88901148) or equivalent, in the groove around the engine oil cooler cover as shown in Figure 1. Install the engine oil cooler cover back to the engine block and torque to 22 ft/lbs.
