overheat warning then the engine
went into the reduced power mode. Found to be low on coolant. Added coolant and the engine appears to be running normal and the temperature remains steady at about 205-210degrees F. Indicator still says low power mode and engine check light still on. Does this reset itself or do I have to do that manually?
JA: Do you have the trouble code? Do you have a code reader or scan tool?
Customer: No but I can borrow one.
JA: Not a problem. You can work with the Cadillac Mechanic to figure that out. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes, if the problem was simply the low coolant. If the issue returns I would certainly take it in to get checked out.
JA: Great! What have you tried so far? Is there anything else important you think the Cadillac Mechanic should know about your Cadillac?
Customer: Not really... It's a 2012 3.6 CTS4 with about 45k miles. To be honest, because the reservoir/overflow tank is not transparent, I have overlooked checking the level when I do regular maintenance. Something I'll have to remember from now on.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Cadillac Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
