Yeah, I'd think tq steer would be an issue. You have 300 lb ft. of torque

Nice car... I was about to buy one before I bought the Impy. In retrospect, I probably should have, but oh well... I've always loved Caddy'*, especially the Seville... Keep an eye on the oil seals and the head gaskets and it'll last ya a long time

Yeah, I use the GM tablets whenever I change the anti-freeze, which was immediately after I bought it (about 4 months ago) and will be every year. Supposed to seal the bolts around the headgaskets.

telI me about the " GM tablet". I Just bought a 2003 DTS, and am going to get the radiator fluid changed soon.

Had to use those GM Tablets on my 86 Fleetwood, fairly easy procedure, i used to crush them to fine powder and drop them in the lower rad hose before i filled her up.

Just go to your local GM dealer and ask for the radiator additive tablets--they're about 1 1/4" in diameter, there are usually 6 in a packet and you crush them up real fine and add them to your radiator. You can get the same thing but they're called something else, at most auto parts stores and maybe even at Wal Mart. Not expensive, but I've heard they're recommended for aluminum blocks with aluminum heads.
