Question about 1983 Ford Ranger
Seems to run good, until oil in radiator slows coolant flow and it starts getting hot.
no water in oil
no blow by
no oil cooler
valve cover says turbo, but there is not a turbo unit
flush rad and engine w/water,seems ok till oil gets back in rad
no history, vehicle was bought this way about a year ago
doesn't indicate compression leaking into cooling system either
You might have a blown head gasket that is allowing one of your oil galleries in the engine to mix engine oil with the coolant after the oil pressure gets to a certain point. You might also have a cracked head causing the same type of problem.
