OIL IN COOLANT RESERVOIR 00 CADILLAC DEVILLE


Are you sure its oil? If you bought it used someone probably added Bars Leak or some other cooling system sealer which can appear as oil. Cadillac Northstar engines are well known for cooling system problems, and that is usually the first step people take. If it is oil that could indicate an intake manifold leak or a head gasket leak, although it usually results in coolant in the oil, not the other way around.

Just bought a corolla sport2004,it shows engine oil light on dashboard after working for about 30minutes,and wont off until i switch off the engine and restart....cause and solution please


Lots of possible causes / solutions. Make sure that oil is correct type and amount, make sure there are no leaks, check any oil cooler for damage, look at eack spark plug in turn making sure that they only show light brown not black discoloration, change oil and filters. Hard to say more without seeing.

Engine is overheating and I believe I can taste antifreeze in the engine oil we drained. We only drained a small amount.


One way to test for sure if there is antifreeze in your oil (and avoiding ingesting poisonous ethylene gylcol) is by placing a drop of oil on a hot exhaust manifold. If it boils, there is a antifreeze leak. Similarly, if you can light the oil on fire with a hand lighter, there is a gas leak as well. If you find antifreeze, you can try using a florescent dye to track the leak to its source.

Bought the envoy w/ 70,000 miles, fresh oil change. @ 74,000 miles it was 1.5 qrts low, put in 5w30, checked oil 2 weeks later it was 1 qrt low. do not see smoke or any leaking.


I just bought a 2005 envoy too. I read in the manual that the 4.6 6 cyl engine needs 7 qts total. 2 Over the normal oil change. Is it possible it wasn't low to start? I noticed when Walmart changed the oil they charged extra for the change because it needed the two extra qts. However my dip stick has oil over the full mark. Seemed strange but I haven't had any leaks and after 3k mile no change in level. Make sure you had the correct about the first time.

Leaking oil around the oil filter. is there a special filter to use on this car? I bought it used and it didn't start leaking until i changed the oil myself. and it only leaks when it is running


Oh, one should make sure that the old rubber gasket didn't get stuck on the engine block where the filter is. Sometimes, people change their own oil and don't look at the old filter they took off, to see if the gasket came off and stuck to the engine block.

In that case, the new filter has a gasket, and the old gasket is stuck to the block, and you have two gaskets stuck together, which will leak.

This is a common mistake to happen on any car.

Good luck on this repair.

Oil leak from a Mazda Bongo


Are you sure you are leaking oil? Rotary's are designed to consume oil. How much oil depends on how you drive. Oil is injected into the engine to lubricate the seals. It is normal for a rotary to consume oil. Make sure it stays full, I usually check every 1200-1500 miles or so. The Renesis engine in the RX-8 uses less oil than the previous Atkins 13b's found in RX7's. I believe I have used about a quart of oil in 8000 miles or so and that is with aggressive driving habits. The best way to maintain a rotary's oil consumption is to check in between oil changes and fill as needed. Get yourself a factory service manual for detailed info on your RX-8. I got mine from www.promanuals.net for about $20. The best tool I've bought so far my Rotary.
