These cars are notorious for intake manifold gaskets leaking also. May not show signs of the water/coolant mixture mixing with the oil for some time. Just speaking from experience.

I have 1999 kia sephia started chugging and losing power and the check engine light started blinking I waited and then checked the oil, there was oil all over the dip stick. Whats wrong with it


Was the oil kind of milky and thick? That would mean water in the oil, likely caused by a blown head gasket.
I would also have the codes from the computer read; most autoparts places will read codes for free.
Replacing a head gasket is a pretty big job, if you're not a mechanic.

Gmc Sonoma 94 losing water no leaks not in oil or on floorboard. New water pump. New radiator cap.


your leak is likely in head leaking into the spark plug ignition area and burning of once vehicle is running check plugs for moisture before motor is hot, also can seal using blue rhino at auto zone I used on 6 vehicles and sealed all of them.

01 pontiac gt overheating. if a/c or heater on it


It may be the intake manifold gasket that has gone bad and you may be losing the antifreeze in your engine. Pull the oil dip stick out and see if it' over filled and look under the oil cap, look to see if there is any sign of antifreeze in your engine oil. Under the cap would have a milky brown sludge and under the PVC valve too, if there is then your engine is on it's way out if you do not repair the leak. Antifreeze is corrosive to the engine bearings and it's been know that as low as 1000 miles will cause the engine to go bad with antifreeze in the engine. The intake manifold gasket is known to go bad in the 3.4 liter engines till 2004 where they came up with an upgraded gasket. Good luck and keep me posted.

White smoke cuming out tailpipe 3400 v6


I would almost bet you have a blown head gasket or a cracked head. White smoke at the exhaust, loosing coolant, moisture on the underside of the oil fill cap, and on the dip stick are all signs of a blown gasket. The fact that there is no coolant in the oil does not mean it does not have a blown gasket. To find out for sure remove all spark plugs, disconnect the coil wire, and then run a compression test on all cylinders. If you find one or more with low compression you have a blown gasket. Do not drive this car any longer until you get this repaired. Serious engine damage will occur if you continue to drive it.

Transmission slips, sometimes won't shift out of low, losing coolant, but can't find where it is losing it from.


Check your oil dip stick your coolant maybe mixing with you oil when you pull your dip stick for the oil if it looks milky then thats where it's going and the problem is a blown head gasket. For the transmission this year Taurus are known for the transmission to go out quick it's sounds like it needs rebuilt.Hope this helps.

Engine oil mixed in coolant


this would more than likely be cause by a bad cylinder head gasket. I would bet 89% this is your problem.

If your oil is white looking on the dip stick, you will have serious damage inside the engine.
