An oil leak mixing with coolant is an internal leak, which is usually the result of a faulty or damaged head gasket, or cracked head. This is a major repair job, because the entire top of the engine has to be removed to do the repair. You can't see the leak because it's inside the engine, not outside of it. White smoke (steam) should be coming out of the exhaust pipe if this is true.
The speed control of your fan has resisters that are in the venting system to blow air on them to keep them cool. If they overheat and or burn you will lose your low and medium speeds of the fan. If you run the fan at full see if the smell goes away. Your engine could be burning oil on the outside of the engine block, make sure that the weatherstrip where your hood meets the fresh air intake grill is sealing tight.
If the oil level goes up, something has to be leaking into the engine oil pan. That would either be gasoline from the injectors or coolant from the radiator. If you are not adding coolant, it could be a leaking injector.
There was a head gasket problem and some water goes to the piston head. It is wise to open the engine and let the machine shop engr. to do the total cost estimate to rebuild it. Cost including the parts and labor of the mechanic who assemble the engine. If the total cost of rebuilt is cheaper then let it be done by the mechanic. Option 2 is to find a second hand engine from surplus dealer and have a cost comparison.
from mean from the grill or the hood and the front panels gap?? smoke or steam?? steam is your radiator is leaking a very fine mist and looks like smoke. smoke is youre buring oil from an oil leak somewhere the engine. good luck
Doesn't sound good. Check oil level. Also check for metal in the oil once you pull the dipstick. A loud knocking noise is a sign of a blown engine may be you spun a rod in which case you would need engine replacement or rebuild
what colour smoke? if white, you may have a blown head gasket, remove the radiator cap look for signs of oil in coolant, if low top up with water and start engine,if coolant is trown from radiator this confirms same, also look for external coolant and oil leakk on cylinder head.you can also check cylinders by re moving spark plugs cank engine and see if coolant srays out holes
Your antifreese is leaking through the engine block The white smoke that you see coming out off the tail pipe is steam from heating up the antifreeze. This problem needs to be taken to a mechanic because your engine may have a blown head gasket or a cracked block. You keep having to fill it up with antifreeze because it is evaporating inside your engine block. Check your oil and see if the color is like a white milky liquid. If so then its definitely your head gasket. Try not to run the car to much like this because you will crack the engine. This is a pretty expensive job. You may want to consider a different vehicle because who knows what else will go wrong with this vehicle. I hope this helps you.
