Oil in water coolant bottle of rover 25i

HI. If your car is equipped with an engine oil cooler that uses coolant to operate, this would be a good place to start (This is a big issue in some GM vehicals). Sometimes an engine oil cooler can act like a one way valve. When the engine is not running but is still hot the cooling system will have about 15 pounds of residual pressure forcing coolant into the engine. This problem can be repaired by replacing the engine oil cooler. Once the oil cooler has been replaced you must replace the engine oil and filter and recheck for the conditions once more. There are three remaining causes for coolant in the motor oil, and they all require you to dismantle the engine. This can be tricky because the repair overlaps and it is difficult to tell which one is causing the problem. For example: A mechanic has told you that the cylinder head is cracked, or warped, and as they start disassembling, the tech discovers that it is the intake manifold gasket that has failed. It's up to the repair shop to tell the customer that the cost of the repair will be less. Or the opposite can happen, example: A repair shop has discovered that your power plant has a blown head gasket, once the disassembling is complete, they inform you the head gasket is ok, and the cylinder has been pressure checked and is ok. This only leaves the engine block as the failure and must be replaced to repair the problem, and that can be very costly. Always check the intake gasket first on V6, V8 and V10 engines. Then the cylinder head gaskets, cylinder heads and finally the engine block.

NOTE: Most common occurrence in this situation will be a failed head gasket set

Oil in overflow bottle. one guy said head gasket $ 15-1900.00 I pressurized overflow bottle left it overnight. next day checked crankcase and trans for water.,None in either. no coolant loss

It has to be a gasket related problem or radiator. Check your oil cooler lines, they maybe allowing oil to get into radiator, therefore prob bad radiator but sounds like intake or worse yet Head gasket problem.

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 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

Oil mixed with water in coolant

Head gasket would be your only problem, the oil cooler normally is cooled by air and not water.

Oil transfering into the coolant on a chevy optra. lugs look good, compression is equal on all cylinders.

Oil in water resovour vw 2002 passat

Could be just the OIL COOLER. VW IS CORRECT.
If the oil cooloer fails internely you will have a mix of coolant and oil. In the engine and in the Radiator,

But not to say the other guys were wrong...

Oil in coolant and engine will turn over and will not start...2005 Ford F450 Super Duty 6.0 Diesel

oil in the coolant generally indicates a blown head gasket. If the head gasket is blown, oil and coolant could be getting into the cylinders. You should have a mechanic check it out. I don't know a whole lot about dianosinng diesels. If you can get the glow plugs out, turn it over and see it any water or oil blows out of the holes.
