you must have a black hole some where in your engine,lol. but seriously the fluid must have been refilling the radiator from there it must be leaking out some where, check your oil level for anti freeze contamination. check the tattle tale hole on the water pump for any leaks there.park the car and check fluid levels cold start car and let warm up untill thermostate opens then check for leaks
Could be time for a new van. The oil light is warning the driver engine oil pressure has dropped below 10 psi, not necessarily that the engine is low on oil. Common causes for low oil pressure is a faulty oil pump or screen, or worn engine parts. The fact you are also adding coolant and you don't see any external leaks sounds like the engine is reaching the end of its life.
check your fluids radiator should be full and resavor should be at full level if you dont have enough anti freeze it wont push fluid into your heater core also pay attention to your tempature gage if the temp is low you wont get good heat your thermostat could be stuck wide open I would try adding anti-freeze first though that usually fixes it make sure its 50/50 if you just add water sooner or later that water will evaporate
check all fluids..oil,transmission fluid,anti freeze.look for n.e leaks.see if the check engine light is on..test it and see if you notice n.e lack of power or n.e kind of odd noises and shaking.hopes this helps you out a bit. :)
Drain it out into a very clean container, that way you can inspect it and still be able to put it back in. Years ago when this happened we would point to the fuel pump because there was only a diaphragm that separated the gas from the engine. The crankcase would fill up with gas. We have no such trouble these days with electric fuel pumps. Aside from that there are only two choices; overfilling and water from the cooling system. Please post your results.
