Not sure but you may have a leak in your oil cooler ,,,, this would allow trans oil into the coolant and cause your loss of oil and overheating,,,,

SOURCE: 96 Blazer Overheating

Yes the issue is most likely an air block, jack the front of the truck up as far as you can, fill the recovery bottle and run the engine for about 10 min, then shut down and run cold water over the radiator, this should purge the air, recheck the recovery tank and refill as ness.

you could have a bad hose, check the upper and lower hoses and hake sure they are not caving in on themselves. sounds like it could either be that or you might have something cloging the hoses. run the engine with the hood open so you have the pressure build up, and look at both raditior hoses. see if they are bulging out as pressuer gets built, or if they cave in .

SOURCE: 1995 legacy 250t wagon - overheating

Sometimes after changing the coolant, people (like me) decided to fill the radiator ... only to find the car overheated like a candle.
When you fill the car, DO NOT fill the radiator first. Pull the top hose off, and fill the engine (via the hose) with coolant. Once that's full, shove the hose on and then top off the radiator.
Solved the problem for me. Has never overheated since.

Radiator is bubbling, what does that mean


This indicates a cracked head or a blown head gasket. have a compression test done to confirm if this is so.

Blowing white smoke out of exhaust pipe


White smoke is usually a sign for a bad head gasket. How much white smoke is coming out? Also, are you losing coolant and can't find a drip under the engine?

I have a 2010 hummer h3 that has a milky color in the radiator we checked all the fluids the engine oil is fine but the transmission fluid is barely touching the dipstick what could the problem be ...........


Milky colour in the radiator means that the engine has overheated and the head gasket is blown and might need replacement after skimming the cylinder head.The milky colour is oil in the engine mixing with water that cools the engine

I am losing antifreeze no leaks and white smoke


White smoke means the car is burning antifreeze, along with gas. One of your head gaskets has blown out and will have to be replaced. Also the cause for overheating. A block test or compression test will confirm it, and tell you which head gasket is out, whether left bank or right bank of engine.
Sorry for the bad news, ft, cylinder head repairs are expensive.

Bad head gasket?


The A/c will drip water normally from the condensation drain hose, a small hose on the front of the firewall somewhere.

Are you having to continually put in radiator water? Has your engine oil got an appearance like dirty milk (water in it)? If not, and it is not overheating very quickly (a classic sign of a blown head gasket) then you can discount the head gasket as a cause.

Continual need for oil can also be due to a leak (oil on the outside of the engine and heavy drips on the ground), or burning of oil (much blue smoke from the tailpipe after idling for a bit).

You could get a compression test, which will point to a blown head gasket and/or a worn engine which is burning oil. A radiator leak down test will show up a leaky coolant system.

I have a 2000 Plymouth Neon. I have oil in the


sounds like blown head gasket or possible cracked head. Only way to know for sure is either you pull the head, take to a machine shop have it serviced, they will replace any bad valves, resurface and pressure check it. If its cracked they will tell ya. The alternative is to pull the head, clean up really good and put a new gasket and reinstall the head. If it doesn't fix its cracked.

We have a 2003 gmc Envoy V6 4X4 Automatic has 108000 miles on it i see that the hose was replaced going to the radiator we smell antifreese under the hood and having to put anti freeze in the over flow...


Well, the fluid from the radiator could be evaporating. Is the upper hose solid when you shut it off?

If you 'smell' antifreeze there 'is' a leak.

Is the fluid 50/50 strength antifreeze to water?

Usually, if there is a leak, it will drip to the ground or come out of the tailpipe (in the case of a bad head gasket).

It is not unusual to have a car with 108,000 mi. to have a leak somewhere.

Keep looking and topping off the fluid.

Oil keeps getting in to the water


if thats the case you should have water in the oil also, that means you have a blown head gasket
