Oil in coolant

Oil in the radiator is usually caused by a leaking head gasket or other engine problem, or a break in the transmission line if the automatic trans uses a cooler in the radiator.

The oli is getting into the water but not water into the oil?

Is coolant oil color now pink or brown?

If pink, transmission oil cooler failed.

If brown engine oil cooler failed, oil pressure is higher than coolant pressure.

Check the oil cooler for corrosion internally, problem is common.

Possible head gasket failed or worse, head cracked..

Oil in the radiator but no heat

Oil in the coolant means u have an OiL LEAK!
If u have an automatic transmission, ur transmission fluid might be leaking thru ur oil cooler via radiator!
If ur engine frequently loosing LUBRiCANT ENGiNE OiL, thats the case u have a a blown head gasket!
Might as well bring ur car to ur nearest garage mechanic to check on that!
Nice to help someone!

Oil in expansion (coolant) reservoir Golf 1.4 98

replace the oil cooler first before you change the head gasket ,but normally a 10 year old vehicle often has gasket fatigue ,not made like a good old fashioned copper head gasket ,they rarely went wrong

This is probably a head gasket problem and not an oil cooler problem.

The oil cooler is fairly easy to test.

Remove the cooler from the engine but do not disconnect cooling lines and then pressurize the cooling system. You can use a radiator test tool to put pressure on the cooling system and look for leaks. If it leaks, replace it.

You may also be able to bypass the oil cooler altogether if it leaks.

The head gasket is another story.

Get a 1/4" pipe to spark plug fitting and put a male air coupling fitting in it.

Then you can charge the cylinders with air from your compressor.

Make sure each cylinder that you test is at top dead center so that the valves are closed.

If air bubbles into your coolant, you found your problem.

If air leaks out your intake you have a bad intake valve

If air leaks out your exhaust you have a bad exhaust valve etc.

If you find this useful, please take the time to rate it.

Coolant consumption

Are you sure you've checked everywhere around the engine block? What about arounr the oil filter as some has an oil cooler which tend to leak coolant? If it uses coolant, it must have gone somewhere and normally you should be able to see a trace of antifreeze leak aomewere.
Let us know how you get on.Cheers.
