Went to add coolant to reservoir there was oil in it! checked radiator only coolant disconected reservoir from radiator until i get it fixed. think previous owner added oil here. any other ideas?


The way to tell if something is wrong check oil cap. Look for a white foam sometimes it's brown showing coolant in oil also look for white or blue smoke coming out of tailpipe. If you don't see any of these simple drain reservoir and flush it. I would also drain radiator to be on safe side. It is possible that last owner put oil in reservoir I have seen strange things like that and worse

High oil warning ml350


Check the oil on the dipstick. If it is high, it may be contaminated with gas or coolant. You can smell if it is gas. If it is coolant, it will look milky brown color. That would point to a head gasket problem.

If the oil looks good and not contaminated, but still high, drain enough out the drain plug until oil is at proper level, or just go ahead and drain all the oil so it can be looked at at for contamination. Because if jiffy lube put too much in, you are right, the light should have come on sooner. The whirring noise could very well be from a high oil level, so look into all possibilities. If oil is not too high, it could be just a sensor problem-but it doesn't sound like it. Good luck.

Where is the engine drain plug?


It is always on the lower side of the oil pan on the "bulge".

Coolent went down and oil level shot up, what do i do-drain the oil, its leaking oil real fast now right after an oil change


Drain the oil and check for coolant, if there is coolant present, you have a head-gasket problem. You may also notice sweet smelling exhaust because of the coolant leaking into the cylinders.

Win i start the car and look under the hood, there is oil coming out of a box that is, on the side of the block. But above the oil filter ?? . How do i fix that, is it a gasket or what ??


That is the engine oil cooler. There is a 'O' ring between it and the oil filter mount. They harden and crack.

Ask your dealer for the large Oil Cooler 'O' Ring.

Remove oil filter. Remove exposed pipe nut holding oil cooler to housing. If nessacary, drain coolant so you can disconnect coolant hoses from cooler or catch coolant as hoses disconnected. Swing oil cooler away and remove old 'O' ring.

Place new 'O' ring with grease on oil cooler it to hold it in place and reassemble. Tighten oil filter pipe nut to around 18 ft lbs .

Refit oil filter. Refit coolant hoses and top of oil and coolant.
Run engine to check for leaks and allow to cool. Top of coolant to COLD level if required.

You will need hose clamp pliers and wrench for oil cooler pipe nut. Pliers can be obtained from most parts stores.

Most likely place for oil into coolant is oil cooler, the aluminum box that mounts between the oil filter and a flange that comes off the block.

What make engine to have excess oil


Water. when an intake or head gasket blows it can drain coolant into the crank case. You need to check this out. and don't drive the car. Coolant in the crankcase will destroy an engine. you can remove the oil drain plug and see what comes out. coolant will drain first. Unless the coolant and oil have already mixed, then it will come out a milky tan to brown color

Was adding coolant to engine grabbed wrong can added motor oil by mistake what to do???? less than a quart of engine oil went into surge tank engine was not running


Not to worry. Drain the oil out of the surge tank. If there is a hose attached to the bottom of the tank just let it drain inot a jug from there. Otherwise you'll have to take the tank off and drain it that way unless you have a shop vaccuum. Oil floats on water, suction it out with the shop vac. When you drain it let it drain for 1/2 hour or so and then hook it back up and fill with coolant. Oil in the coolant is not nearly as big a problem as the other way around. Hope this helps.

Im having a problem with my 2003 Chevy Malibu leaking coolant. What do I do? What do I check? I have no idea where its coming from. I can drive and when I park the car it starts to pour out coolant. I took...


actually it is not good idea to replace your coolant by water only you shoul full your coolant system 50/50 mixture coolant and water because coolant has uniqe smell and color so easier to identified leaks.
first check your oil condition and coolant reservior for any coolont oil mixture for figure out head gaskets condition if you have any oil coolant mixture in oil or coolant you have a blown head gaskets this will send you to mechanic if everthing looks clear then go front driver side bottom of radiator and open the drain **** (make sure car is cool and put container under because coolant is toxic and mess up your drive way )open reservior tab too and drain all the water close back drain **** probably your vehicle prefer dexcool(red color)
fill 3 qt dexcool then water or just buy ready mix run the engine with reservior tab open and check coolont level add more if necesery suquize collont hoses for air inside when engine start hit up close reservior tab. on passanger side front of the engine has a coolant drain plug open with number 8 wrench untill you see the coolant come out( bleed the system for air) make this several times turn on your heat too and bleed again and watch your upper and lover hoses for any visible leaks fallow small coolant lines like under throttle body check thermostat housing under throttle body on 3.4l engines check under radiator if your pressure cab dosen't look good get a new pressure cab .shut of the car and check for leaks once you find out where is leak from easy to fix it.
