You should have oil in the engine, I am hoping that you meant to say that you have water in the oil. If this is the case you have major problems. Probably a cracked head or blown head gasket. If you need more information please feel free to contact me

My 2003 Pontiac Gran Prix overheats in zero degree weather.

Make sure radiator is full and that all hoses are ok. Then make sure that the thermostat is opening and that your water pump is circulating coolant through the radiator which must not be clogged. Till you find issue run your heater full blast with window open to add additional cooling to engine.

2002 pontiac gran am son was driving it ran hot I put in coolent and check oil no oil put in oil tried to start it car will turn over but will not start getting gas heard the fuel pump

check oil to see if there is rad fluid in it. if there is you have a cracked head or head gasket. if no rad fluid in oil, check for a spark.pull out a spark plug attach spark plug wire hold close to engine block with gloves and turn over engine. it is best to have someone with mechanical know how to do this,i.e. friend or nieghbor

My power steering is not working and the fluid is not leaking what could the problem be it is a 2001 pontiac gran dam 2.7L engine

Hi, Check that the pump is pumping oil to the steering rack. But first check the oil level it maybe low. Good luck.

When i start my car it very slowly leaks oil from a censor on the top drivers side of the engine above the coolant housing and right behind the powersteering resivoir.

Is it the Quad4 engine? If so, that is where your oil sending unit is located (sends the signal to the oil-pressure gauge). Same thing happened on an 1995 Z24 I had. It takes minutes to replace and is not very expensive.
