Change youre oil asap all should be fine depending on how much you put in. the best would be not to start the car.

As for water in the radiator i just hope that were you live the temperature does not go under freezing point because the water would freeze in youre engine causing the radiator not to work and then youre car would be air cooled witch is not good.

Do NOT drive it untill you have drained the oil and put fresh oil in... make sure you change the oil filter as well

Ok so my 2001 kia rio ran fine on my trip from nor cal to phoenix, az and ran fine for 3 weeks after. I noticed the oil level was very low when I checked it a few days ago and it started to overheat. I put...


Your engine does not overheat because the oil is low. Do you get heat out of the vents? Check the fluid level in the radiator not the reservoir. Due this with the engine cold. If the radiator is low than you have a leak somewhere. Add coolant to the radiator and see if you can see any abvious leaks. You may need to have the cooling system pressure checked in order to find the leak. If the coolant level is full in the radiator than you may have a bad thermostat. If you get heat out the vents than we can assume the coolant level is full and the water pump is working. When the temp gauge is hot feel the upper and lower hoses. If one is hot and one is cold than the t-stat may be the problem. If there is no heat out the vents and the coolant level is full than you may have a bad water pump. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

The car wont start


You probably blew a headgasket and now there's water in the combustion chamber. It's a condition called hydrolock. You can't compress water and the engine won't turn over. Remove all the spark plugs and try turning the engine over for about 30 seconds. That should blow the water out thru the spark plug holes. Try jumping the battery with another car or get a car battery charger to juice up your battery.

Hi Kare. I would suggest you drain all the oil immediately or have a shop do it. You don't want water in there for to long or it can hurt your motor. Just get a oil and filter change. and put some water in the radiator. You should be all good from there

I accidentally got water in the oil part of the engine


Definitely DO NOT start the car...drain the oil pan, replace the plug, and refill with the proper amount of oil. Start the car and run until the engine temp is at the normal range for at least 15 minutes. Then drain the oil, change the filter, and refill with fresh oil.
