That sounds really bad,was the head checked for cracks?And were the head gaskets replaced?I would say you would be best to replace motor.

Hi I need help with my 2004 Freelander TD4: suddenly blue/white smoke coming out the back of the car ( the car did not over heated the heat gauge was at normal position) notes that there was oil leaking...

cracked block. once it heats up the crack gets bigger and the oil gets thinner which makes more oil burn. run car without the oil cap on and see if lots of air/ oil comes out if so thats blow by and you need a new engine.

I had my val cover gasket replace. my honda 1999 crv is still leaking oil. where could th leak be coming from

What makes you think the valve cover was leaking,was oil coming from there.Exactly where is it leaking from.If the oil filter is tighten too tight,then it will leak,also by the oil filter is the oil pressure switch,it's screwed into block,it can leak.The rear oil seal can leak,where engine and transmission meet.If valve cover is not installed correctly,it will leak and loose compression.

Water leak fro left side of engine

You might have either a blown head gasket or a crack in your engine block on that side of the motor. If you dont have any leaks from hoses, fittings or the water pump itself then mostly likely it is the head gasket, another way to confirm and make sure is to do an oil change, if there is chunky build up or sludge like discolorations due to coolant or water leaking into your oil then its the head gasket, and you'll need to definitely have it replaced or look into purchasing another vehicle. If theres no problems with your oil then its a leak from somewhere else. Possibley a heater hose or coolant line.

Water getting into oil

If its just condensation in the oil cap or dipstick, to some degree its normal. However if you have water in the oil and its very creamy in texture, its probably a head gasket leak, or cracked head. Its important to get it repaired soon, or total engine bearing failure will result.

95 Accord Ex, 4cyl...Replaced head gasket, water pump, and timing belt about 3 weeks ago. It over heated yesterday. I havent had heat since blowing the gasket, could it be something as easy as the...

Check your oil if it is over full the water from the radiator is going into your crank case also the oil will look like a chocolate color. Yes check your radiator as well for leaks or cracks in it. Did you check the cylinder head to make sure it wasnt warped sometimes when they over heat they will warp and you will have to have the surface sanded down till its true again or level.if it is warped then its not seating down on the block all the way to make that good seal thus creating the leak into the crank case.

if oil is leaking from the the top to bottom, check the gasket below the cover that has the daewoo name and sign on on top of the engine block. it could be cracked. replace with new one without any gasket sealant just replace the original and done

I have oil in my engine coolant reservoir as well as my radiator and im not sure what caused this. is this something that can be fixed?

A head gasket leak (blown head gasket) is highly likely. ($200)

Check your oil dipstick If it contains a milky fluid, that is water mixed with the oil. A sure sign of a blown head gasket.

Other symptoms of a blown head gasket include:
1. White smoke and excess water dripping out the tailpipe.
2. Overheatinmg engine
3. With radiator cap off, steam and water will erupt, sometimes violently.

Whichever tailpipe has the smoke is the side that the blown head gasket is located.

... sorry ...

Engine oil leaking into radiator

you either have a cracked block or the head job they did is not good. It is very easy to screw up a head job. Also they may not have put in the right gasket. If they had to shave a lot of the head off, then you need a thicker gasket. If they used the standard head gasket will break or leak again.

Water mix with oil

The only thing that you can do is to atleast change the head gasket and have the head and the block checked for another damage like a cracked cylinder wall or craked water jackets in head or block. Basically you need a comlete over overhaul of the engine. Good lucka andthanks for using FIX YA
