SOURCE: My 2000 Olds Silhouette leaks coolant.

First is to check to see if it's your intake gasket, pull the dip stick and look at the condition of the oil. Look for excessive sludge and milking, look under the oil cap and look in to the valve cover, also pull the PVC valve and look at the condition. Check to see if there is sludge and milking, if there is then you have antifreeze leaking in to you engine crank case which is very bad. The antifreeze is corrosive to the engine bearing and will soon cost you a new engine if there is no indication of antifreeze in your crank case, then it's a leak somewhere else through out your cooling system. If you see the leak from the out side then that's good, it may just be a bad hose clamp that needs to be tightened. If your not sure and want to buy some time, add about 3 table spoon of common kitchen Black Pepper. The black pepper will work it's way throughout the cooling system and will plug up the leak for now and the great thing about pepper is that it will not leave any residue when you flush out the system, not like the radiator stop leaks out in the market. Good luck and keep me posted, it could be the heater hose to the heater core.

Testimonial: "No, I did not notice any antifreeze in the oil. I was aware of this possibility due to past experience on a different vehicle many years ago."

I had this problem too. Could be loose bolts holding the intake manifold down. Lots of work to reach the bolts, but much more work and $ to replace the gasket. Look closely for the bolts, some parts may have to come off to locate them.

SOURCE: leaking above oil filter in

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you have an oil change. Replace the oil filter after you drain all of the oil for the filter's rubber seal is surely worn out that's why it's leaking. You'll be good after the procedure.

Hope you find this information helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

2001 olds silhouette engine overheats


Time for Intake Gaskets and possibly head gaskets, very common problem with these, the intake gaskets go bad and the coolant actually burns in the cylinder and of course the cylinder pumps air into the coolant system because of intake gaskets being bad. :-(

Large oil leak behind starter


Sounds like a crankshaft seal behind the flywheel or a leak from the gearbox. You didn't say manual or auto. You should be able tell what is leaking by the colour of the oil.

My 2000 Olds Silhouette with 150k also had its low oil pressure light come on and is dinging. Any ideas of extent of problem and solutions.


Quite a few of these vans had issues with the instrument panel cluster causing this problem. There is an updated program to recalibrate the cluster to not set the low oil pressure light on. Go to a GM dealer and have them reprogram the IPC.

Just did the head gasket on a 02 olds silhouette and there is still oil in the coolant could it be the oil cooler leaking into the radiator or is there still a problem with the head gasket


the head gasket is fine you can check this by watching the radiator and oil levels if they dont move at all then there is still oil from the previous blown head gasket in cooling system they do make a supper strong cooling system cleaner for that type of stuff its made by prestone and works really good you might have to use it a few times.

2001 oldsmobile silhouette will not crank after.........


does the temp gauge or light come on? is the car over heating? .... oh and a starter can test fine when its cold, but the heat soak from the engine and exhaust affect it's performance drastically. it sounds like you need a new starter.
