Hello, I have a 1998 320 S, the temp is always below half, and most of the time, quarter,one of the houses blown up all of the sudden, went to change it, found out there is this thick creamy colour inside...

Hello...from you description it does not sound good & your diagnosis is probably correct. The oil in the coolant would indicate a blown head gasket or cracked head. At that point repairs would have been on the top end of the engine. Now, with the loss of oil the bearings have seized on the bottom end. You may have thrown a connecting rod--- The sudden loss of oil may be from a hole in the block or the oil pan... i hope this helps.

There are many things that can cause oil loss. The most common are a loose or missing oil drain plug, or a leaking oil filter. With either of these problems the oil can leak out very fast. Your mechanic will locate the oil leak as a first step, then I am sure they will then proceed to inspect the engine for internal damage due to oil loss. I would recommend a leakdown test to check for piston or ring damage, also you need to pay close attention to whether the engine has any new noises. If the leakdown test shows good results, and there are no new noises in the engine, your engine has a pretty good chance of surviving this ordeal. There are many possibility for the leak source, like worn seals, or the tow previously listed items, be sure to repair the engine where it does not leak, because loosing the oil can destroy the engine. Good luck with it.

I have a ML350 - 2006 I have been getting a low oil level message and have been burning off about a quart of oil every few weeks! How can I fix this or prevent it from happening. And why am I suddenly...

You may not be 'burning' the oil, it could be lost because of leaking gaskets.
If you do not have bluish fumes under hard acceleration or see a puff of smoke after idling down a long grade and resuming acceleration, the oil loss could be elsewhere.
Make sure you have no spotting on the ground under the engine after standing, and examine the engine itself for signs of wet oil deposits.
You didn't mention the odometer number so we cannot determine whether this oil loss is due to engine wear. Diesels can actually consume some oil passing the rings since they burn a heavier fuel than gasoline engines and this can mask some blow-by occurring from wear. A compression check might be in order if you find no traces of oil loss elsewhere.

Sudden lose of oil pressure

mcdevito75 here, It"s possible with the mileage on the engine the oil pressure is being reduced while accelerating or comimg to a stop, or the oil pressure switch is faulty on the engine.

1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4.0L engine. Oil

I'm assuming the engine is still running and no engine noise has occured due to loss of oil pressure, and it is just the gauge that is not reading? If so, the oil pressure switch that is located on the camshaft sensor, could have a bad connection or the oil sensor will need to be replaced. The oil sensor is located on the left side of the engine and is mounting horizontally on the camshaft sensor housing.

Oil pressure loss

the 1st thing u do is have the oil pressure tested with a test mechanical gauge by a shop, most times it is just the oil pressure sending unit is defective, but never assume that is the problem, low oil pressure will distroy a $5000.00 engine very quickly, u can just try a new sending unit, but highly recommend a pressure test with a mechanical gauge before you run the engine anymore.

Can missing motor mount cause oil pressure problems? My oil pressure light keeps flickering and I just got the oil changed, the spark plugs and wires changed and pcv changed. I found the engine mount...

If your engine is free to move around, your engine may be losing rotational force to engine twist. Technically, when there is a sudden loss of rotational power in the engine rotating assembly, this could cause the oil pump to stop rotating for a split second. however, there are many more reasons that you need to get the mont replaced anyway.
