SOURCE: My 2000 Olds Silhouette leaks coolant.

First is to check to see if it's your intake gasket, pull the dip stick and look at the condition of the oil. Look for excessive sludge and milking, look under the oil cap and look in to the valve cover, also pull the PVC valve and look at the condition. Check to see if there is sludge and milking, if there is then you have antifreeze leaking in to you engine crank case which is very bad. The antifreeze is corrosive to the engine bearing and will soon cost you a new engine if there is no indication of antifreeze in your crank case, then it's a leak somewhere else through out your cooling system. If you see the leak from the out side then that's good, it may just be a bad hose clamp that needs to be tightened. If your not sure and want to buy some time, add about 3 table spoon of common kitchen Black Pepper. The black pepper will work it's way throughout the cooling system and will plug up the leak for now and the great thing about pepper is that it will not leave any residue when you flush out the system, not like the radiator stop leaks out in the market. Good luck and keep me posted, it could be the heater hose to the heater core.

Testimonial: "No, I did not notice any antifreeze in the oil. I was aware of this possibility due to past experience on a different vehicle many years ago."

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Olds Silhouette that keeps running

That engine is FAMOUS for the intake manifold gaskets to leak. Does it run hot all the time or only when its low on coolant. When its hot and the fans are on, is the air coming through the radiator HOT? it should be, if its not HOT or LUKE WARM, the radiator isnt flowing coolant. Make sure the water pump isnt leaking. The thermostat is a pain to replace, so make shure its bad before replacing it. Does it run hot sitting still or going down the highway? If it cools on the road, check the cooling fans. They only work when the a/c is on OR till the engine is approx 230f or so.

I had this problem too. Could be loose bolts holding the intake manifold down. Lots of work to reach the bolts, but much more work and $ to replace the gasket. Look closely for the bolts, some parts may have to come off to locate them.

SOURCE: leaking above oil filter in

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you have an oil change. Replace the oil filter after you drain all of the oil for the filter's rubber seal is surely worn out that's why it's leaking. You'll be good after the procedure.

Hope you find this information helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

What could cause the oil to run out above the starter only while running?


It seems to me that you might have a problem with your head gasket, also check the valve cover gasket, for the heads gasket if this is the problem you might want to take it to a mechanic shop, and if is your valve cover gasket you can do this your own self, ask auto zone for the tienen process make sure you put silicone on the proper edges good luck!!!!

Oil leak above starter and hits exhaust manifold


Rocker cover gasket must be leaking. Sometimes just tightening the cover bolts will stop it. Otherwise replace the gaskets.

2001 olds silhouette engine overheats


Time for Intake Gaskets and possibly head gaskets, very common problem with these, the intake gaskets go bad and the coolant actually burns in the cylinder and of course the cylinder pumps air into the coolant system because of intake gaskets being bad. :-(

Just did the head gasket on a 02 olds silhouette and there is still oil in the coolant could it be the oil cooler leaking into the radiator or is there still a problem with the head gasket


the head gasket is fine you can check this by watching the radiator and oil levels if they dont move at all then there is still oil from the previous blown head gasket in cooling system they do make a supper strong cooling system cleaner for that type of stuff its made by prestone and works really good you might have to use it a few times.

Oil leak above starter

Oil leak somewhere abouve the starter.


It could be transmission fluid. This can leak if not sealed off and they smell similar. If you can get some of that leak on the ground and a good amount, put water onto it. If it turns pink it's transmission fluid. If it stays black the oil line may run under there somewhere. Don't really know about them German cars.

Where is the oil pressure sending unit on the 1998 olds silhouett


Just above and slightly to the left of the rear end of the starter motor on the front side of the engine. Best to work on this with the engine cold as the front exhaust manifold is just above it
