Whistling could mean a belt is misaligned or there's an intake leak. Squealing may be caused by a loose fan belt, and grinding might be coming from the brakes, not the engine.
  • What could damage my Cadillac Eldorado engine? Certain driving habits can hurt your engine. These habits include driving on an empty fuel tank, flooring the gas pedal while the car is in Park, or pushing 'the pedal to the metal' before the engine has warmed up. Steer clear of these habits to help protect engine performance and efficiency.
  • Is it okay to put water in my Cadillac Eldorado radiator? Only in emergencies. A 50/50 mix of coolant and water (or a pre-mixed) coolant is recommended. However, if you must keep driving when you're out of coolant, it's better to drive with water in your coolant reservoir than nothing.
