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.

Hello i recently 'i think' blew my engine about a week ago i have a 2006 pontiac grand prix 3800 v6 i checked the RADIATOR and it had oil but the oil doest have water. help


flush and drain your radiator and put new coolant and see what happens then if oil shows up again replace radiator because the transmission coolant line runs to the bottom of the radiator so it might be a problem there

My reatta has an oil leak, and the gage dropped to low and the car died, i put more oil in and it was fine for a couple days then bam it happened again, this happened sooner each time, and simultaneously...


well it sounds like you have a major problems here . If your coolant level is dropping and the oil level is high it sounds like you have a head gasket leaking coolant into your oil system . Is the oil a milky color . if so i would look at a head gasket problem . Also if the oil does look milky it may have gumed up the oil level sensor so it is not working right

when the motor is running put your hand on the tail pipe and see if any thing is coming out of the pipe, take the oil dip stick out and see if the oil looks foamy, possibly you head gasket is gone

Car overheated once. added more coolant. Now coolant level goes down gradually from time to time, but engine oil seems to be rising. no coolant on the ground that I can tell. whats the problem?


have you noticed some coolant in your engine oil? it will make some bubbles/foam in your oil. If so, the engine head might be cracked and your coolant is mixing with your engine oil. That would explain the reason why your coolant goes down and your oil level goes up.

Overheated, mechanic replaced heads (perhaps on wrong sides?), then knocking began in engine (not there before). so can the heads be put on wrongly? and if so, what problems would it cause? thnk that the...


During an overheat, coolant can enter the engine and goes into the oil pan. This in itself can damage the crank bearings. If the oil was not changed before the engine was re-started after the repair, the very first thing to circulate through the oiling system is coolant.(oil will float on top)
The reality of this is that proving when that happened is nearly impossible unless the oil has still not been changed.
Heads are generally interchangeable and if not, the accessories on the front cannot be mounted.
Bottom line is you need to replace the engine or short-block. Very expensive and better done by a more reliable shop.

2000 catera oil is geting in the cooling


If a mechanic putting the coolant back in after arepair didn't do it then the oil cooler connection in the raditor can fail but the head gasket can be leaking too. Check for coolant in the motor oil tooas his will tell about the head gasket. The oil isundermorepresure than the coolant except then the car is shut off after fully warmed. No coolant in the engine oil. Flush the cooling system real good and install just water run the car and look for oil again if it's clean then put new coolant in it and don't ley the last person to work on it since this happened to work on it any more as someone could have added oil to the coolant not knowing about cars well enough or trying to cause problems on purpose.

Low Coolant light always on put new coolant in and it disappears


where the coolant is going and why the gauges go nuts are probably not the same problem. sounds like your gauges have a problem with the ground side connection to power. you could look at the negative battery post and see if it is really gunked up, might as well check the positive side while you are looking. if the battery posts get oxidized pretty much everything gets a not so great connection but gauges are one of few places you notice it. the car only runs off the battery at startup or if momentarily car is using more amperage than alternator can provide, but current runs through battery from alternator so bad connection there will cause whole system to function less than optimum. in the cooling system one component you don't mention replacing is the heater core. you say the coolant is not on the ground, so where can it be? pull your oil dipstick and see if your oil looks like oil. if it looks like vaseline, kinda white and creamy, you just figured out where your coolant went and you have a blown head gasket. hope that's not it, it's sort of a hassle. there aren't too many other places for the coolant to go. it either runs on the ground, boils off against the hot block, like if it comes out near an exhaust manifold (and that makes quite an odor) or gets into the oil through blown head gasket. it can make it into the passenger compartment through a leaky heater core and if that happens you will smell a sort of sweet smell in the car and after while get a green cast to condensation inside windows. hope that helps.

Oil in the radiator overflow reservoir


either a leaky head gasket or someone put oil in the overflow, it happens, clean it out drain the coolant from the entire system and refill with new long life antifreeze, also add a can of good radiator sealer.
