I got an 85 Caddy for scrap. Taking it apart today I opened up the petcock on the radiator and was greeted with this lovely stuff. NO it isn't oil it wasn't oily. It appeared to be almost straight stop leak.

You do know you're not supposed to drain the radiator by stabbing it with a knife, right? :D

Yech. That's oooey-goooey.

Looks like they may have missed a maintenance coolant flush & change.
