Coolant filling the engine oil? I would suspect a head gasket or piston liner gasket failure, I this is happening when you fill radiator and engine is still off I would look at the block itself for a crack in the piston wall(internal damage), if this is while running consider the head gaskets

SOURCE: Coolant filling up overflow bottle

You may need to ask AAA to put a radiator pressure tester on the resevoir bottle and pump it up to operating pressure(Pressure cap rating) and see if it over pressurises while it is running at operating temp,rev engine up and down and watch what the testers pressure readings do,it should move up and down in sync with the water pump.If the pressure keeps building i would have to believe that combustion chamber gases are over pressurising your cooling system.Also test the pressure cap is functioning within factory specs.

Trans fluid ed in coolant bottle did flush and two week brown oily goo in bottle


Flush coolant system again. Do you have a brown sludge in the oil. Do this get Preston coolant flush, drain radiator drain coolant tank, fill radiator with water, add the Preston run vehicle for about 15 min remove lower radiator hose from radiator. This will allow all residue to be removed from engine. Replace radiator hose. Fill radiator with appropriate amount of coolant. Disconnect tank from system and let water run through tank until it is clear. Reconnect tank and you should be good. Unless you have oil and coolant mixed which means a blown head gasket or cracked block

Do I have to release a valve when adding antifreeze to radiator on 2006 toyota sequoia?


Look for an air bleed valve, high on the block or head, often right on the thermostat housing. Such a valve if equipped, will be at the highest point of the coolant passages in the engine, used to bleed air from the engine coolant. When you are filling the radiator, the valve should be opened. On a Buick there is a center screw in the valve that just comes out and laid aside until coolant level reaches that point. As you fill the radiator, you are also filling the coolant passages in the engine. When the radiator is close to full, you will see coolant start coming out of the bleed valve. That is when you close the valve, you have bled the air out of the engine coolant, and you can now continue filling the radiator.

Losing coolant with no visible leaks 2005 jeep liberty engine 3.7


Did you listen to the radiator too see if it gurgles when filling? When filling the gurgling tells you there are no air or coolant leaks in the engine much the same as an upside down soda bottle gurgles when turned upside down. Also look in the radiator too see if bubbles are coming from the bottom of the radiator while running at normal operating temperature with the cap off.? If you see bubbles coming from the bottom, you have a leaking head gasket. This can and will happen without the coolant leaking into oil, and without oil leaking into coolant. The gasket leaks right near the cylinder and sucks the coolant into the cylinder on the intake stroke, and blows it back into the radiator on compression stroke. This is why the coolant bubbles up from the bottom. The coolant that gets sucked in gets vaporized and comes out the exhaust. Loosing coolant ?? This is where it is going if no leaks under or around around the vehicle.Good luck I hope this solves your problem. Please post a solved comment on fixya, so I receive credit for the solve.

Coolant in oil


Some place the coolant flows is through an area with oil in it, and the 2 mix, this indicates the gasket is defective or the part is cracked or otherwise not sealing. Cylinder head gaskets can cause this and often do.

Change the thermostat and make sure you blead the system of air and if it still keeps heating up then you have a bigger problem and that is the head gasket.

Replaced thermostat and flushed out heater core 3 times 3 times it was cloggged, flushed system twice got good radiator flow and ther very hot just heat like luke warm one line in to core hot one oming out...


If the heater core is not damaged or leaking ie: if you don't see coolant on the INSIDE of your windshield or coolant on the floor inside the car then chances are you may just need to BLEED the radiator.

remove radiator cap

Fill coolant resovoir to the cold line if the engine is cold from sitting overnight.

Start engine with cap off

Wait till engine gets hot

While waiting you will see a big gurgle of air bubbles come out and the coolant level will drop

Fill the radiator with more coolant to compensate.

When the fans come on and it stops gurgling air install the radiator cap

You are done

Watch the coolant level for the next few days and top off in the resovoir as needed to keep it filled.

Your heat should be very hot now providing you installed the correct oem thermostat correctly.

Hope this helps

Usually you have the fill the system completely one time with car running. It is a good idea to burp the upper radiator hose to draw coolant in. After few minutes of car running, thermostat will open and drain all coolant from radiator to engine block. This is where you need to fill up the system again. Also check to see if you have a coolant pressure bleed valve. Some units do.
If you are not leaking anything, and have good compression in cylinders with no leaks, then you should be fine Coolant is just in engine block instead of radiator. Both units need to be filled.

I have seen this many times before. The sound is air being forced out of the radiator cap and escaping back into the coolant recovery bottle. It can be as simple as a new radiator cap or as costly as cylinder head crack, or even block cracked. It is important that your radiator be completely full with proper coolant mix and have a good working order cap with the proper pressure.
