Question about 2002 Toyota ECHO
What could be the cause of oil in the radiator overflow reservoir? I just bought a 2002 Toyota Echo and after driving it about 350 miles noticed the coolant low temp. light was staying on longer than it seemed like it should. Checking the coolant level I found oil in the overflow reservoir. It seems to be almost pure oil, no anti-freeze. Will take it to a mechanic tomorrow but would like to know what to expect.
Either a leaky head gasket or someone put oil in the overflow, it happens, clean it out drain the coolant from the entire system and refill with new long life antifreeze, also add a can of good radiator sealer.
