Oil leaked into radiator after it over boiled

I have oil leaked into the radiator after it over boiled. The cooling fan came on only when the air cond was on but after awhile the fan stopped working altogether with or without the air con switched on. How and where do I check for whether the sensor or the regulator is broken? It's 2001 Volvo S60 2.4t.
Can anyone help?

Check thermostat. The boiling sound your hearing could be a restriction in the heater core under the dash.

98 caddi deville small pin leak at top of radiator, changed cap to 10 pd , stopped leaking but when we use the air cond it over heats and needs more coolant getting frustrated


The radiator cap is rated for a reason. The higher the pressure the cap holds, the higher the boiling temperature is because the high pressure holds air in the coolant. By putting a lower rated cap on your lowered the boiling point of the coolant. Put the correct cap on and fix the leak. Why didn't you just fix the leak in the first place? You can use JB Weld to fix a pin-hole.

If the car overheats is it cause the alternater?


No. its either radiator , engine cooling fan, coolant leaks, thremostat, or worst headgasket. Acura are popular for radiator being broken at the seam of the radiator.So check for leaks, now if the cooling fan doesnt come on the yes it will overheat, so the operation has to be monitored a engine cannot go pass 215 F there it can be damage, now the thermostat need to open at a cerain degree . or it will cause overheating and not allow cool fluid to enter the engine area. and the radiator cap must be able to sustain a certain pressure in order to keep the car from overheat, water boils at 110 F so a radiator cap rated for your engine must be specification for every one pound of pressure it increase the boiling point 10 degrees. 210 is fuel control you should not exceed this temperature. radiator are popular for getting plugged internally.

Well its like i have an oil leak when im running on the freeway my oil pressure goes up and temp goes down but when i stop my oil pressure goes down and my temp goes up???...what could this be a valve...


Valve cover leak (oil) will not cause this problem, what needs to be checked is your radiator cooling fan, more then likely not working, that's why when your going down the freeway it don't over heat, you have air going through radiator, but when at stop, no air going through radiator to cool coolant before it goes back through engine, starts to get hot, and oil will also thin out, and have low oil pressure, check cooling fan's or fan, for voltage, should have voltage at normal oper. temp. about 210 - 220 deg., if you do have voltage and fan are not on, replace fan motor.

I have a 2006 jeep liberty with a 3.7. in normal driving conditions is does not overheat. if i am 4x4ing or with the air conditioning on it will overheat. The electric fans works and the fluid level is...


Do you know for sure if the radiator fan comes on? It should be coming on for the a/c, and it should come on BEFORE the engine temp gauge begins to climb.

Also, do you have obstructions in front of the grill? I would think that you said no blockage to the air intake, but also I could think if you have a winch. Is there any chance you have mud/debris in the radiator fins?

Bugs would be in the a/c condenser. Have you looked at the engine radiator behind the condenser? It's kind of hard to see. You may have to remove the plastic cover.

Make sure the fan goes from low to high speed; when the jeep starts to get warmer the fan should go from the normal low speed up to high (you usually will know it because it really is humming out there on high). It may just be hot enough that low speed can't handle the heat load of the air-cond and the engine in traffic.

The air cond gets the air before the radiator so if the fan is coming on low it will keep the condenser cool enough to have decent A/C performance... the dealer should also be able to test low / hi radiator fan operation.

Tell us news, hope helps.

Radiator replacement


  1. Remove air cleaner and duct assembly.
  2. Drain the coolant.
    1. Remove the engine mount struts.
    2. Remove the cooling fans with the cooling fan shroud.
    3. Remove the radiator upper hose from the radiator.
    4. Remove the radiator lower hose from the radiator.
    5. Disconnect the transaxle oil cooler lines from the radiator.
    6. Remove the radiator brackets and bolts.
    7. Remove the radiator. Installation Procedure
    1. Install the radiator. Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice in Service Precautions.
      1. Install the radiator brackets and bolts.
        • Tighten the bolts to 24 Nm (18 ft. lbs.) .
      1. Connect the transaxle oil cooler lines to the radiator.
      2. Install the radiator upper hose to the radiator.
      3. Install the radiator lower hose to the radiator.
      4. Install the cooling fans with the cooling fan shroud.
      5. Install the engine mount struts. Notice: When adding coolant, it is important that you use GM Goodwrench DEX-COOL (R) or HAVOLINE (R) DEX-COOL (R) coolant. If Coolant other than DEX-COOL (R) or HAVOLINE (R) DEX-COOL (R) is added to the system the engine coolant will require change sooner; at 50,000 km (30,000 mi) or 24 months.
      6. Fill the cooling system.
      7. Install the air cleaner and duct assembly.

Engine is over heating and blowing air into coolant resivor and boiling coolant


The blowing of air into the coolant resevour is caused by a leaking head gasket. What's happening is the cylinder is blowing air into the cooling system causing this to happen.
