  1. if you do the service on car, then that is bad. (oil in AF)


  2. if done at JIPHPYboobs. it can be just oil put there.




it will get worse if #1

if #2, go to any real auto shop, ASE shop and get a full flush and fill

to get that gunk out of your engine.

or ask them to do the rad leak down test or exhaust fumes in RAD test.

if all tests pass , its a long distance runner... if not , not.

SOURCE: Cooling System Pressure Build up, but No engine overheat, No Water in oil

Found hints on VolkswagenTalk.com suggesting to check inside engine oil cap. If you find foam (some call it ice-cream) Cylinder head gasket is blown. Went checked, and actually found ice-cream on it. Credit to Hillbill, Man you Rock!

I am now doing pressure test, but no wapping has been detected..problem was just in its early stages. on my way to get a metal gasket, and replace. Cheerz!

SOURCE: ROVER 214i When idling coolant

This is often indicative of a failed head gasket, exhaust gasses could be getting into the coolant from one of the cylinders, it is quite common on this engine.

SOURCE: Engine smells like rubber burning

Generally that smell is caused by an oil leak that is getting on either the exhaust pipe or manifold (doesn't take much to smell). As far as bottle getting low, I've got a 93 that never stays full but only needs coolant in the radiator about once every two months. Been like that for two or three years and has never overheated. I'm sure there is a small leak somewhere, but I'm not driving myself crazy looking for it. Check all hose connections, and look on the ground after being parked overnight...If it's leaking, something will show up. But if the radiator is staying full, just check it when checking oil level.

SOURCE: 2001 dodge stratus engine temperature gauge spikes occasionally

Look for a loose connection to the temperature sender unit on the motor.
If all connections OK, you may need a new temp sender unit.

SOURCE: Found radiator fluid in motor oil. Oil looks like

No, you can flush system with oil after doing repairs. Just ad oil as you would normally do on service then run car for 30 mins to hr then dump oil and change filter. Should be fine. Yes hope that it is a intake gasket.

Found coolant sprayed over the backside of the engine passenger side and is overheating like crazy. What could be the causes?


If there is any water in your oil, you'll have to replace your head gasket. Sounds like the intake manifold gasket needs to be replaced, unless you just happen to have a water line to your heater core that is busted. Make sure there is plenty of water in your radiator and reservoir, then let the engine idle up to normal temperature and look back there with a flashlight and see where it's coming from.

I went to change the thermostat. on 98 Olds Sillouet When I removed the throttle body I found oil and water in the upper intake manifold Also I did not find any water on the dipstick. Any ideas?


If your thermostat is sticking open, the vehicle never reaches operating temperature. Moisture in the engine is never vaporized and burned off. This is also normal if you only drive short distances. Take your vehicle for about an hour drive and the moisture should be gone.

With engine at normal operating temperature why is the top radiator hose hot and the bottom hose warm?


It is normal for the top radiator hose to be hotter than the lower hose. The top hose brings the heated coolant from the engine to the radiator, and the lower hose returns the cooler water from the radiator back to the engine to help keep the engine at proper temperature. For the smell, check to see if you have any oil leaks, especially where the oil may run/drip on to the exhaust manifold. Check the valve cover gaskets, and look for excessively oily areas on the bottom of the car to see if you can find where the oil is leaking from.

Oil in the radiator


That is likely coolant that has broken down and appears to be oil but it is not. Remove the tank and flush it out and then flush the entire cooling system.

Over heat some times but temp gage is saying its fine not head gasaet


not sure what exactly you are asking... if your temp gauge is normal with the motor up to normal temperature (210-211 degrees for dodge) and suddenly moves down to the cool mark like around 100-150 usually that indicates you are low or have no coolant. if your engine starts making knocking noises and pinging or sounds bad when this happens it is bad the motor is overheating.
to find out if it is the head gasket. let the engine cool down, remove radiator cap look if you see oil in the radiator (antifreeze is usually orange, red or green) if it is black or milky white in the radiator good chance it is a blown head gasket, check the oil if there is water in the oil, good chance it is a blown head gasket. leave radiator cap off make sure radiator is full start engine let temperature come up to normal keep everyone away from radiator,rev engine in the safety of the car if you have radiator fluid shooting out of the radiator like a geyser it is blown head gasket
