Why is my 2008 Chevrolet Silverado burning oil


Did it ever over heat The intake manifolds on chevys can't take heat.
Cheak your antifreeze for oil in it look at your dip stick look for white fome.
If you see eighter of these condutions you need to fix the intake manifold fast or the engine will be shot.
It could be a valve problem to how many miles are on it .But check the oil and antifreeze

Engine smoking, clicking sound, and over heating shaking


You may have blown a head gasket. smoking is fluids (oil and antifreeze) getting into the cylinder and burning.
SHAKING- When the antifreeze and oil enter the cylinder they don't burn well, causing the plug to foul.
Check your radiator and see if the antifreeze looks like chocolate milk, or check your oil dip stick for the same.
pull your spark plugs and inspect the ends for oil and or antifreeze

Transmission slipping on 03 GMC Envoy. what does iy mean when trans fluid measure high on dip stick?


Two things: #1 someone has overfilled it by mistake thinking they were putting oil in the engine. Yes I have seen this.
#2 The transmission cooler in the radiator could be leaking antifreeze into the transmission through the cooling line raising the fluid level. I would look for milk shake foam on the dip stick and make sure you check trans in park and not neutral.

What's the brown oil like substance in my surge tank I use dexcool antifreeze



  • Sounds to me like the antifreeze needs flushed. The say it's good for 100,000 miles but my experience is 75,000 miles max. When Dexcool gets old it turns a brownish tinge.


  • Now you want to make sure to pull the oil dip stick and make sure it does not look like chocolate mile. If it does then you have a cracked head or head gasket.

  • This can also be a little dirt/rust in the system. If the oil on the dip stick looks normal the flush your coolant.

  • Thanks for using FixYa
