SOURCE: oil mixed with water in coolant

Head gasket would be your only problem, the oil cooler normally is cooled by air and not water.

SOURCE: water/oil mixing in 22r engine

yes it can mix, also check the timing cover for rubs from the timing chain. this is the common problem with 22r. many mechanics will tell you its the block but they are just trying to make money.

SOURCE: 2000 vw jetta 2.0 checked oil no oil showed on dip

Most likely place for oil into coolant is oil cooler, the aluminum box that mounts between the oil filter and a flange that comes off the block.

Trans fluid ed in coolant bottle did flush and two week brown oily goo in bottle


Flush coolant system again. Do you have a brown sludge in the oil. Do this get Preston coolant flush, drain radiator drain coolant tank, fill radiator with water, add the Preston run vehicle for about 15 min remove lower radiator hose from radiator. This will allow all residue to be removed from engine. Replace radiator hose. Fill radiator with appropriate amount of coolant. Disconnect tank from system and let water run through tank until it is clear. Reconnect tank and you should be good. Unless you have oil and coolant mixed which means a blown head gasket or cracked block

Oil in radiator , but there is no oil and water mixing in sump


I am assuming its motor oil and not transmission fluid, right ?
You can have a leaking intake gasket or head gasket and get oil in the coolant without getting coolant in the crankcase.
Same thing opposite. The bigger the leak, the better the chance of getting both at the same time.

What to do when there no psi on cyl 4 to get the psi up agan"?"


There are at least three possible reasons for no psi in cyl No 4.
1. Burnt or damaged exhaust valve in that cylinder
FIX Remove head and replace faulty valve
2. Blown head gasket (water mixed with sump oil shows milky on dipstick and steam or water coming out of exhaust tailpipe, radiator water disappears )
FIX Remove head, grind flat and assemble with new gasket.
3. Broken piston rings, or cracked piston or burnt hole in piston.
FIX replace faulty parts.
Squirt some sump oil ( 2 or 3 spoonfuls ) through spark plug hole,
spin motor , and if compression PSI improves then it is rings or piston, if no PSI then it is faulty ex valve !!!

If head gasket if been change. The ways you can mix both of the is by a bad head gascket or radiator if the tank breaks and mix. Most times head gasket but do a compression test and you will find out easy with out takeing the gasket out.

I HAVE 2004 MONTE CARLO. THE HOT COOLANT TEMP LIGHT HAS COME A FEW TIMES. THE HEATER ONLY BLOWS COLD AIR FOR A BIT AND THEN EVENTUALLY HEATS UP. THE CAR NEVER SEEMS TO RUN HOT THOUGH. I HAVE BEEN TOLD...


A blown head gasket is usually easy to confirm. The head gasket prevents the engine coolant and oil from mixing under the head. If you have a blown head gasket, you should be able to see bubbles of water/cooland on the dip stick when you check your oil.

I do agree that with your heater taking a while to get warm, it probably has some build-up in the system that needs to be flushed out, before it causes other issues.

Best of luck!

2000 Beetle has oil in the water resivor. What would cause this?


It sounds like your head gasket is blown. I would check the oil and see if there is water in it also. make sure someone didn't poor oil into the cooling system. Also i wouldn't recommend driving the vehicle especially if there is water in the engine oil or water in the transmission fluid. It will destroy the engine or transmission if there is water mixed into the oil of either component

I have had exactly the same thing happen to me. In the end it was a faulty water pump which was allowing water into the engine.

OIL IN ANTIFREEZE


Everyone automatically assumes that oil and water mixing means a blown head gasket or cracked engine block. Of course common sense is usually not that common. Oil in coolant is a different problem than coolant in oil. The former is a low pressure leak, and could indicate only an intake manifold gasket. It could also be an early or small head gasket leak. Coolant in oil is usually a cracked block or torn head gasket, and has concomitant symptoms of white exhaust smoke and milky oil on dipstick. If you replace the head gasket and the problem persists, an intake gasket could have fixed the problem.
