Oil in radiator? 1999 festiva auto

Sounds like you may have a blown head gasket. Did your motor recently get hot or over heat? Those symptoms point to a blown head gasket. Your engine oil is getting into the coolant and coolant is most likely getting into your oil. Kinda looks like chocolate milk?

Ford falcon 4,0L engine fix radiators but brownish fluid came out on cooling system small radiator in front what is problem

Does not sound good. A brownish fluid is the result of coolant mixing with engine oil. And if engine oil is getting mixed in with your coolant, that indicates a crack somewhere in block where oil is getting into the coolant tubing. Also could be a bad head gasket.

2006 Ford F250 Deisel 6.0 is producing excessive white smoke what may be causing issue

Could be coolant entering a cylinder. That can be a result of a bad head gasket - or cracked engine block. Check coolant level. Top off and then check every 100 miles of so. If getting lower - that's the source. Check oil to be sure coolant isn't entering crankcase, either. This could be a $$ fix for a head gasket repair - or significantly more if a cracked engine block.

Signs i cracked myblock on my engine

If you are getting oil in the coolant, or coolant in the engine oil, or any obvious external leaks, the block could be cracked. The crack would be bigger when the engine is hot.

My Ford Taurus 2002 has a blinking engine light. Also, the coolant has a leak. My mechanic says there's a leak of the coolant that is going into the engine. Just to see where the leak is happening he...

well, coolant mixed into your oil is terrible. it breaks down the oil.Before you do anything expensive you could try GM cooling system sealing tabs. Or another off brand from a parts store. GM came out with these tabs when they realized they had weak intake gaskets in there vehicles. They seemed to work rather well. Just because they are a GM product doesn't mean you cant use it in other makes. And change the oil as soon as possible! maybe a couple times.

I have white smoke coming from the tailpipe, loss of coolant, and oil in the cooling system. 1992 Ford F 250 Turbo Diesel 7.3 L

One of the head gaskets is blown allowing coolant into the combustion chamber causing the white smoke and low coolant. Also allows oil into the coolant and coolant into the oil.

Get it fixed before you ruin the motor. It is expensive to get fixed, but cheaper than a new engine

Oil in coolant and engine will turn over and will not start...2005 Ford F450 Super Duty 6.0 Diesel

oil in the coolant generally indicates a blown head gasket. If the head gasket is blown, oil and coolant could be getting into the cylinders. You should have a mechanic check it out. I don't know a whole lot about dianosinng diesels. If you can get the glow plugs out, turn it over and see it any water or oil blows out of the holes.

Oil in coolant only

You might have a blown head gasket that is allowing one of your oil galleries in the engine to mix engine oil with the coolant after the oil pressure gets to a certain point. You might also have a cracked head causing the same type of problem.
