Could be too much coolant in the system. Does it run dry on you if you run it for too long? There could also be trapped air in your cooling system which will work itself out with time.

replace the oil cooler first before you change the head gasket ,but normally a 10 year old vehicle often has gasket fatigue ,not made like a good old fashioned copper head gasket ,they rarely went wrong

Vw bora v5 mixing oil with water at the expansion tank. what is the fault?


Most likely a cracked head. They are often difficult to see with the by eye and can be in places you cannot see. One thing though, do any of the head bolts extend into the water jacket? If so, when you install them you need to use a manufacturers recommended thread sealer on the bolts or water from the water jacket will wick up through the head bolt threads into the head itself.

Changed my oil today.When I took the cap off to replace the oil,the cap had some white goo on it.What is this?


Could be a leaking cylinder head gasket or a small crack in the cylinder head. Is the head aluminum? Make and mileage of the vehicle will sometime help as some vehicle makes are notorious for head gasket problems. This allows coolant into the oil and causes this goo on the inside of the cap. Have a trustworthy shop check it out to be sure.

Engine oil mixing into coolant


The only place, oil and water share a gasket is the cylinder head gasket, oil and water galleries run through the engine block and head via the head gasket. The cylinder pressure will be OK, it's the oil pressure that's putting the oil in the coolant, the gasket has gone between the water and oil galleries or there is an internal crack (unlikely). A coolant pressure test should show it up.

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

Oil getting into radiator/cooling system?


Hi Alan, If your vehicle has been overheated at any time, the cylinder head may have become distorted and consequently coolant may be mixing with oil if the gasket is damaged and failing to seal correctly. The job requires the removal of the cylinder head and taking it to a machining company to skim it before replacing. You were quite correct to have checked the oil cooler if it is the type which fits into the engine block and uses the engine coolant for cooling. Oil in the cooling system is not something which should be ignored. Once the problem has been solved and rectified, flush the cooling system to remove all oil deposits and then use the correct mixture of coolant to water. Regards John

Sounds like you have a blown head gasket or a cracked block, pull the plugs and see witch one is wet that will be the cylinder that is leaking.
