Is most olive oil sold for FOOD mixed with soy oil?

I read that suppliers/bottlers were mixing in other vegetable oils to extend shelf life because pure olive oil gets rancid so fast. That makes those of us allergic to soy at high risk.

Try buying genuine brand oils sealed in bottles. Generic brands may be mixed but genuine brands would not do this as it would ruin their reputation

SOURCE: 1999 tahoe has water mixed with engine oil.RBM

You may have a intake manifold gasket that has gone bad or a cracked intake manifold which is causing the antifreeze to leak in to your crank case. keep an eye on your antifreeze level and have the problem repaired soon as you can, Antifreeze is corrosive to the engine's internal bearings and it's been known for bearing to fail as low as 2000 miles. Once the bearing fails your going to have to replace the engine, sorry for the bad news. This is common for the lack coolant service, after 150,000 miles or 5 years, the antifreeze will start to crystallize and restrict the coolant flow through out the engine. This will create hotter areas then others making gaskets and heads gaskets to fail. Keep me posted, be glad to help you get your Tahoe running 100% again soon.

SOURCE: oil mixing with Diesel and car emits white smoke.

The copper washers on the bottom of the injectors can give this fault if they are not renewed when the injectors are replaced .

If you have changed these allready and made sure you pulled them down exactly as the manual says in 3 stages then you may have a bad injector - see your Isuzu dealer .

SOURCE: engine oil dipstick shows water and rust mixed in with oil

Everyone always jumps to head gaskets. There are plenty of MINOR things that can be looked at first.
The Volvo 2.3, 2.4, 2.5 Inline 5 Cylinder dipstick tube is known to develop a large amount of condensationin winter months and stop and go driving. What you see on your dip stick is possibly just condensation. Take off your oil cap and look under the cap and inside the valve cover. Is there any thick foamy oatmeal like substance or noticeable amounts of water? If your oil was saturated with coolant, you would be able to see it up there too. Check your coolant for oil. Volvo coolant is typically brown to orange, however make sure there is no sludge. Start the car with the cap off and keep an eye out for alot of bubbles. A large amount of bubbles is a sign of a bad head gasket. A couple here and there is just air in your cooling system.
Coolant, Transmission fluid, and Oil have several places they can mix. If you have a turbocharged Volvo, the seals in the turbo can go bad and cause a mix of oil and coolant. Your transmission cooler is also in your radiator, and if it cracks your transmission fluid and coolant can mix. I believe turbo models have an oil cooler built into the radiator as well.
Overall if your car sounds fine, you dont see oatmeal, your not using coolant and oil in excessive amounts, dont have white smoke, and your turbo isnt whining you probably just have condensation in your dip stick. If you are overly concerned you can send a sample of your oil to a lab and have it tested for traces of coolant. Headgaskets rarely fail on Volvo's, even the old ones....I have seen many that have gone to replace them have not found a failed gasket and end up finding a bad transmission cooler or a bad turbo.

What do you do if you put bio diesal in a 2015 versa


if the engine is a petrol engine , you drain the tank and refill with petrol, you may have to bleed the fuel rail but basically it will run a bit rough to start with until all the diesel is flushed from the system then it will settle down
if it is a diesel engine and it is not performing on the bio diesel mix, drain the tank and replace the filter and refill with regular diesel
it may be a bit rough until the system is flushed
If it runs good just use the tank then refill with regular diesel

Is the article about how a lot of Olive Oils brands are mostly fake true?


Pretty much. Just read the ingredients. You want pure virgin olive oil. That is all the ingredients will say. Pure Virgin Olive oil. Anything else with it, it not pure. Just like everything else. You want green beans? then the ingredients will only say "green beans" If you want organic. the label will say organic, the virgin olive oil.

Does mixing orange and green anti freeze cause problems


The orange antifreeze is dex-cool which is suppose to be better, like comparing synthetic oil vs standard oil. It helps extend the life of the antifreeze. Now they have an ANY COLOR ANTIFREEZE that's green, so as long as its that type then you should be fine. It only helps extend and protect the corrosion factor of parts on the engine. hope this helps

What's the likely cause for an oilcooler to mix


The passages that the oil runs through inside the oil cooler have likely become corroded and are allowing oil out/coolant in. This has been an ongoing issue with vehicles using extended life antifreeze, particularly Dexcool. The antifreeze becomes corrosive and rapidly wears components that it passes through, i.e. radiator, heater core, oil cooler, etc.

Antifreez type 1991 volvo? 4cyl


Volvo would like you to believe you need their o.e.m. and pricey anti-freeze to keep your cooling system from falling apart. NOT! Any good quality anti-freeze will perform well. Just be sure to mix it 50-50 with water when adding or changing, or using the 50-50 premix that's sold ready to use. More expensive because you're paying anti-freeze prices for water! I have used off-the-shelf anti-freeze in all my Volvos, which run 300,000 miles or more. You can extend the life of your radiator, water ump etc, but flushing the system every year or so, draining off the old coolant and adding a fresh mix.

OIl, synthetic or regular, what's the difference?


Synthetic oil won't break down as quickly as conventional oil, gives better protection and longer life. Excellent product, I Strongly suggested for those out there who forget to do their oil changes regularly or courier/ work vehicles.
Heres the link to an explaination from Castrol
http://www.castrol.com/castrol/genericarticle.do?categoryId=8264018&contentId=6003233
I use conventional Oil in my jimmy with 5% of Lucas engine oil treatment and service the engine every 3,000 miles. I find it to costly for the Synthetic oil every 3,000 miles, and as for the high mileage oil you can buy. The high mileage oil has a higher fluid retention like adding Lucas engine oil treatment to any conventional oil, so you decide on what type of oil you like to use in your engine.
Good luck and hope this helps.

I have a 2006 mailbu and it has a oil % says 4%


You may want to see what it says in the owners manual about the 4%. As far as the " coolant" you want to use "DEXCOOL" antifreeze, follow the directions on the antifreeze container for proper mixing.

WHICH ANTIFREEZE SHOULD I USE ON MY ECLIPSE SPYDER 03 ?


When choosing antifreeze don't be mislead by the color! In fact, unless you open the bottle and pour some out you won't know what color you are getting in the first place. What to look for is the information on the label.

Typically the "Red" antifreeze is extended life 150,000 mile (5Yr) antifreeze. While the "Green" solution has been the good ole 12-24 month service life stand bye for many year. In fact you can also find the colors of Blue, Orange, and Yellow. The colors are additives, meant to distinguish one set of properties from another. Unfortunately the colors, and additives do not necessarily match from supplier to supplier. Be sure to read the labels.
adparams.getadspec('c_billboard1');
Firstly, read your vehicles owner's manual and identify the recommended call out for the engine coolant. Read the labels carefully to be certain the bottle in your hand is matched with that recommended in your vehicle manual.
If in doubt, drain it out! If you can not determine what your current antifreeze is, drain the entire system, flush it clean, and refill according to manufactures recommended mix ratio. Never mix different antifreeze types. The combination of chemicals can cause unwanted oxidation, corrosion, and degradation of cooling properties.

Keep levels proper. Low levels can allow excess air, coolant cavitation, and yes accelerated corrosion to your cooling system.
Never mix with tap water! Tap water has chemicals that can combine with those in the antifreeze, and cause effects.

Check your coolant specific gravity with a hydrometer. This simple device only cost a few dollars at most auto parts stores. It will tell you when your coolant needs to be changed. Check your level monthly, and the specific gravity seasonally.
