Engine Cooling problem
1999 Cadillac El Dorado V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 94,000 miles
The oil was checked 2-3 days prior to the oil light coming on. There are no external leaks; however, oil was in the coolant overflow. Additionally, there wasn't any oil in the pan.
Prior to this discovery, the car ran great, and there were not issues with overheating. The assumption from the technician was a bad head and/or head gasket. No attempt has been made to diagnose the problem because of warranty issues.
Other than a bad head and/or head gasket, are there any other problems that would cause the rapid loss of oil without overheating or burning oil (no smoke exhausted)?
have the same problem?
