Hate to say this, but check your tailpipes when hot. Had the same thing happen to a 97 that I bought. It was running hot and I could not see where it was leaking to. Had to be cracked heads running down the exhaust. Ditched the caddy and bought another one.

i ran it for about 30 minutes today and there is no smoke or anything coming from the exaust, when i take my radiator cap off there is a slimey green buildup on the inside of the cap, i was told it could be evaporating through the cap if it is bad, i don't know whats wrong with it

That's a cheap and easy fix, let's hope for that. That would be great.
