Question about 2005 Renault Kangoo 1.5
I have since discovered water in coolant bottle overflowing with sludge, oil appears to be getting into coolant bottle??? no smoke from exhaust or evidence of oil in engine area - no sludge
Is it over heating? If there is oil in with the coolent, It could be a cracked head gasket on the engine, Or evan a crack internally in the engine block,

This being a diesel, lack of compression is your worst enemy. These symptoms sound like a blown head gasket. Check your coolant for signs of oil, and check your oil for signs of coolant. (oil will be milky looking) Also indicative of a head gasket problem is an oil or coolant leak from the engine as well. If you see no evidence of the above, have a compression test done, and it should show up.

SOURCE: i have a cracked oil
Steel putty may work, but it is at best a short term solution and even with the most diligently cleaned and roughened surface, will eventually come loose due it expansion differences in the materials. The permanent solutions is to either replace the oil pan or have the crack brazed up professionally. Both will require removal of the oil pan.

A small leak in the head gasket will cause the coolant to disappear,but will not always be visible steam from the tailpipe.(small leak).A good way to check for this is to remove the spark plugs(keep them in order),and see if one of them is cleaner than the rest.(The coolant will steam clean the plug,and leave a slight greenish hue in some cases).If you do find this,you're looking at doing a head gasket.
