Some cars are equiped with an engine oil cooler. I am sorry to be the one to tell you, but when the this cooler;s gasket fails, it will leak coolant into the radiator. It is a very hard repair that needs to be done by a good mechanic with a good reputation.Then on the other hand it may be a cracked engine head. It is either one or the other. Both are costly to repair. The cooler repair will go for about $400 plus labor. The Head replacement is probably more. You can weigh the consequences and see if you want to do this yourself if you are mechanically inclined. Sorry bro.

My 1995 Buick Lesabre has a low humming noise. It started right after I got my oil changed. It sounds just like the noise a car makes when you don't have any power steering fluid in your car and...


I would go back to the oil change place. Fluid levels are their responsibility and you should have a trail of fluid from the leak. If you had no problems before the oil change and immediately after you have problems, then they are the people to talk to.

There are some basic systems that are to be checked when doing an oil change. Power steering fluid, washer fluid, and auto trans fluid are normal items the shops keep on hand to put in cars.

Now cars with rear differentials and standard transmissions are checked on request. Your problem is something that should normally be checked by a shop doing an oil change.

Some of the better shops grease the fittings, check the belts, spray the battery connections and check the Antifreeze.

If the Power steering was out of fluid, the pump may be damaged. There are also different fluids to use for each car company.

Please rate my info.

We have a 95 buick riviera with the supercharge 3800 v6 engine. It overheated, usually runs at 200 degrees and blew the oil dipstick up and oil splattered on the engine. Oil level is ok and oil...


The overheating might be caused by a thermostat stuck closed, have it replaced. That should fix the overheating, as for the hesitating, run a scan on the ECM module to make sure you dont have any codes, clear if any and fix anything that might've gotten damaged from the overheating.

The transmission of my 1995 riveria seems to be slipping


you are possibly looking at a new clutch if manual drive, this sounds like the thrust bearing is warn ( whiring noise)as well as the clutch plate ( slipping as you accelerate), if its an auto, try topping up the fluid for the autobox, as this also sounds like its empty( whiring noise and loss of power to drive), dont forget when checking the auto box fluid, make sure the motor is running and obviously in park...hope this helps

Loud ticking noise on startup


I would have you oil pressure checked. The oil pump or bearings could be going out. The lifter noise on this car usually will go away faster then 5 minutes. I think the noise is lasting a little to long.
