Question about 1997 Dodge Neon
I have oil in radiator I've cleaned out but it keeps coming back, there is no discoloration or bubbles on engine oil stick. The radiator cap is a creamy white colour. Can anyone tell me where the oil is coming from?
Hi it sounds your head gasket need's replaced ,,,As for the water creamy white that means that oil is getting in to your water .
The head gasket has gone water can get into oil
but it also oil can get into water can also
water can be lost down the exhaust.

Rear main seal is probably the problem.
My 1997 Dodge Neon has this same problem. My father-in-law (who used to be a mechanic) checked the car for me and found the rear main seal needs replacing.

I'm not possitive but there is usually a vent tube on top of the transmission, may be possible that dirt or something is clogging it up. That would cause the tranny to build up pressure. But to blow the seal on a new radiator, I wouldn't imagine that. My opinion would be that the new radiator wasn't put together correctly. But just in case the vent tube did cause it to let go, check the vent. I hope that you find the problem. Best wishes.

fuel cap is just one of the causes. Here are 2 others:
Below is a link that explains more thoroughly what the module does; I do wish you the best of luck with your Neon and hope you found this information helpful. Take care!

I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7ltr Hemi....I had a significant issue with loss of oil...the bottom of this engine and vehicle is as dry as they come. No smoke from the tail pipe...however the inside is dark...not that light grey clean burning look...I'm also seeing oil residue inside the air breather....I searched all over that engine to find what knew a PCV should look like...I finally broke down, drove to the local Dodge service dept. and asked one of their mechanics to come show me...facing the engine...on the passenger side of the engine, behind the throttle body cover is what looks like a plug with a raised center clip you grab and twist clockwise to unlock and counter to lock....it took a bit of prying with a small flathead screwdrive, but it popped up. The check valve in it was sluggish (due to the oil) and probably not functioning to full capacity. The dealership charges about $42 per but cut me a "deal" and charged me $34. You do have to remove the throttle body cover to see it and ultimately remove it....2 screws and you're there.
