I don't mean to sound sceptical, but how have you concluded there is not any head gasket problem? Do you mean a compression test is good? Because that will not show up any leak between the water jacket and the oil passages, via the head gasket joint. Only a pinhole leak is needed because water is, well, watery.
Has a radiator leak down test been done? This will show up water jacket leaks (there may be more than one), and give you some idea of the size.

I don't know your engine well, but I cannot think of another ready way for water to get in the oil or v-v, except a cracked block, which is rare. I have read of a leaky intake manifold gasket causing it, but I can't picture that one myself.

    Aha, that casts a different light on it.

    Has the car got an oil cooler in the radiator ?

Blown head gasket will cause this so will a warped head, unproperly torqued bolts on the head, or even a crack in the block.

SOURCE: water/oil mixing in 22r engine

yes it can mix, also check the timing cover for rubs from the timing chain. this is the common problem with 22r. many mechanics will tell you its the block but they are just trying to make money.

SOURCE: oil appearing in radiator, 4afe engine, is there awater gallery behind oil pump? checked head gasket looked fine

Still can be a cracked head gasket. Unless you are creating to much pressure in your engine. Just because you do not see any oil leaks does not mean that the head gasket could not be cracked

What causes oil to appear in water tank


Most likely reason is blown head gasket, look at oil filler cap if it has oil and water mixed into white gloopy stuff it's pretty certain. You will need to replace head gasket to fix it.

Engine oil mixing into coolant


The only place, oil and water share a gasket is the cylinder head gasket, oil and water galleries run through the engine block and head via the head gasket. The cylinder pressure will be OK, it's the oil pressure that's putting the oil in the coolant, the gasket has gone between the water and oil galleries or there is an internal crack (unlikely). A coolant pressure test should show it up.

Actully i think if there is leakage in head gasket oil should come out from it..is it rite?


if there is a leak in the valve cover oil would leak out . if there is a leak in head gasket could mix coolant and oil no leak out the mix would be in crank case, or pressure would build up in radiator whit no mix whatsoever. is this helping? if so please check the corner of this box if you need more info let me know exactly what the matter is i'll be glad to help.

Oil mixed with water in coolant


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

Audi a4 mixing water and oil together hissing,grey/brown foam


That is not true oil and water being mixed can come from many different places. Such as a bad radiator which would cause transmission oil to mix with the water also alot of audi's have a water cooled oil cooler which are a very common cause of oil being mixed with with water. These type of oil coolers are located under you oil filter. They have water lines hooked to them which cools the oil and when they go bad the water and oil will mix. So dont be convinced that its your head gaskets it could be but not as likely. You can pressure test your oil cooler to see if this is the problem just romove it an plug one off the inlet or with rubber plug which can be purchased at you local hardware store (I found mine at ace hardware in there specialty drawers where they have all there bolts) then attach a air hose to the other outlet pressureize the system and place it in a bucket of water. this should tell you if the oil cooler is bad but be careful not to ove3r pressureize the cooler this could damage it and caust it to leak. 15 to 30 psi should be plenty.
