    Ok. Thanks for the advice. Do I need to put any of those anti-leak suppositories in? Didn't the factory use them with dex-cool?
    I used to be 'with it'. Then they changed what 'it' was. Now what I'm 'with' isn't 'it', and what's 'it' seems weird and scary to me.......

    After you're done flushing it really really good, flush it even more really good. Maybe backflush it. I've seen too many Degas tanks with muddy concrete from the slightest bit of coolants mixing.

    Those Cadillac pills were used right off the assembly line in many GM cars are far as I know. They're made from crushed almond shells IIRC. They're pretty safe to use, they won't destroy your cooling system like Bars products. I've used them in a few cars, even non-GM vehicles.

    My mom had the same eldarado when I was learning to drive. Loved the car, had great power for what it was once she got in the mid 100's it started using coolant and then it was gone.
