Sounds like a head gasket,sounds like it is pushing it out the exhaust. If you take a rag or your finger and wipe the inside of the exhaust tip to see if it is wet or if there is a sticky film resado there.
Does it blow out any smoke?

What are the chances that transmission fluid could get into your oil on a 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac


Not that good although it could happen
You would need a leak inside the radatior between the oil colling system for the transmission and a leaking intake manifold gasket that is letting collant leak into the engine that has trany fluid nixed with it .Of coruse you would see oil floating on top of the antifreeze if you removed the radiator cap or the fluid res
. Also look at the engine oil for white foem this also means collant is getting into the engine oil white smoke out the exhaust sure sign you have a leak someware .

Antifreeze leak from rear of engine on pontiac grand prix


Rule out leak from water pump. What engine is it - 3.0 3.8. Could be intake manifold gasket. Have the cooling system pressurized, about 12 lbs. and look for leak, bubbles.
check oil for coolant in oil also. Possible head gasket leak.

White smoke coming out of tail pipe.


WHITE smoke? Or BLUE smoke? White smoke is usually caused by burning antifreeze (possible blown head gasket). Engine oil burning causes a bluish colored smoke.

Changing the oil two months ago means absolutely nothing to me. I have customers that travel 6000 miles or more in a month. Oil consumption is measured in volume over miles, not volume over months. It is normal for most 4 cylinder engines to use a little less than 1/2 quart in 1000 miles (even more than that for 6 cylinder and 8 cylinder engines).

1999 chevy cavalier oils like milk in coffee, antifreeze leaked bad last winter, summer only drove 4-6 miles a week checked every time I went to store, used 1/3-1/2 gallon antifreeze, now getting cold out...


you're getting water in to your oil that's why its milky. could be a bad head gasket ,cracked head, or a cracked block, usually one of the last 2. better get it to a mechanic, if its the block it would probably be cheaper to replace the engine, it takes less time and most places charge 75-100 dollars an hour

My 2000 ford contour is leaking antifreeze/coolant. i noticed that i would have to buy a gallon about 2-3 times a week. then this morning i saw the anitfreeze/coolant on the ground. when i dropped my kids...


Conway residents say someone is poisoning their pets."Some antifreeze tastes really good to a pet and they may drink it willingly, so if they have access to it there may be no limit to what they take in. I hope you don't live there. You may just have a leaking hose or a leaking thermostat housing (4 cyl). Get someone to check and get it fixed soon as you may ruin the engine. Fixing the leak will be cheaper then buying another engine.

Antifreeze disapearing


If you don't see a leak, get it pressure tested. (The coolant system) If coolant is getting into the engine oil, it will destroy an engine quite fast!

Antifreeze/coolantleak


Check the oil for traces of coolant (oil will be milky in color) and oil cap too. If oil has coolant in it head gaskete needs to be replaced. Also check the floor inside the cabine (espetially passenger side)
If it is dump there is leak from heater core. Also open engine block
Coolant might spray onto hot engine and evaporate.
Please kindly let me know if the information was usefull for you or you need more info
Good Luck
