SOURCE: 2000 Boxster overheating, blowing coolant out of

Whatever you do, do not drive. I got the same problem about 4 hours ago and tried to get home. Half way, no oil pressure, overheat, silly noise from the engine.
Take your Boxster to a shop with a truck, you'll save money.

I have a 1995 Toyota corolla and I recently noticed I had a gas leak I sealed the hole with JBL epoxy to hold me over until my new tank arrives but it looks as if there is oil mixed in with the gas .


Keep checking the oil level and the transmission fluid level to make sure they stay full, but there should be no oil in the gas tank.
There may be water, however, and it may be brown like oil.
Water will sit in the bottom of the tank and make rust underneath the gasoline, since gasoline floats on water.

Why does my Mini's fan stay running for 20 minutes after engine is switched off & header tank from radiator needs topping up every week?


will assume it the newer mini produced


yes 20 minutes is too long

will need to go to a workshop for inspection
possible answers for the issue

the fan .......all fixable
faulty internal thermostat ..
faulty thermostatic temp switch not switching off
of fan motor not spinning quick enough


the fan thermostatic on /off switch is set that way to cool down the motor and not warp the head or block
after stopping the engine the coolant is at is hottest for a short time
so the fan shuts off when the coolest temp of coolant is reached

header tank needing top ups

check for hose leaks at clamps or small cracks in heater hoses
the cap of the header tank may need replacing
the internal heater radiator may have a leak
(you would have wet carpet inside the car)
a welsh plug may be leaking
radiator may have a hole hole
or other coolant leak unknown

worst case
if the coolant in the header tank looks like it is sludgy
(has oil in it ) or oil dip stick has coolant or water with the oil
there is a possibility the head gasket has blown

Oil in water tank


Oil is entering water system via a small leak in the head gasket adjacent to the oil drilling where the oil comes from the pump through the head gasket up to the head itself to lubricate the camshaft / valve gear. Or, there is a problem with the oil cooler found on a lot of Renaults. If you look at the oil filter there may be a metal donut looking piece with 2 x 3/4 water hoses attached to it. Because the oil pressure is 40+ lbs and the water is 14lbs when running, and if the cooler has an internal leak / fracture, the oil will gradually pass to the water jacket by virtue of the greater pressure.
Disconnect the 2 hoses and join the 2 block ends together with a length of hose, refill the coolant, run the engine for a while and see if there is any trace of oil or bubbles coming from the now open oil cooler stubs. If there is then the cooler is leaking internally. Replacement is the only option. The biggest problem you face is that the engine block, radiator, heater matrix are all carrying the oil sludge that's been circulating the water system. Cleaning all that out successfully may be your biggest quest.
How do I know all this, I'm just doing the same job on a Renault Clio diesel!!
Get some quality help, prepare yourself for changing the head gasket, timing belt etc. I'm going to flush mine with a strong detergent mix on reassembly, running a garden hose into the upper rad stub and allowing the lower to vent out and hope it brings most with it. Only a hot washer would help and I've bought a new header tank from online to replace the discoloured one when there's no gunk left. Good luck.

Water and oil mixing in my car engine vw golf mk3 cl 1.4l


Sounds like you have a blown head gasket or a cracked block, pull the plugs and see witch one is wet that will be the cylinder that is leaking.

I have a bmw318 on a 94 plate have had the water pump checked the thermostat checked and had a new radiator fitted the system runs fine when cold but when reaching normal temp the hoses become solid and...


sound to me like you have a blown head gasket, try letting it heat up with header tank open and if coolant overflows when you give it a rev up this would tend to confirm it,check also for water in oil or oil in water, water in exhaust all point to head gasket or head crack problems.

Mitsubishi L200 overheating


i have an l200 animal, i started getting the same symptoms, bubbling noises, over heating, water being discharged into the header tank, i had a good look around the engine,there was no oil in the water or water in the oil ( signs of head gasket failure) when the radiator cap was off and i revved hard nothing happened, no dip in water levels and no splashing out. i took the water pump off and the impellor had sheered off the shaft. fitted a new pump and its been fine, maybe all these cracked cylinder heads and warped heads are to do with the engine being run with the fault not being cured.
