Your intake gasket or head gasket is blown,, and will need replaced,,, when anti freeze is present in oil it will turn the oil a light milky brown and clot up,,,anti freeze will also crystalize the bearings in an engine if it is not fix asap,,,do run the engine til its fixed or you might have to replace to whole engine, or have a complete rebuild,,,, i would try to find a used engine and replace,, its alot cheaper,,, or if your looking for a quick short term fix you can try some radiator / block sealent and pour in you radiator,,, FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON THE BOTTLE OR CAN,,,may or may not work,,,,

First I must ask if you have checked you oil level to make sure you don't have a leak putting antifreeze in your crankcase. And a severely overfull crankcase will cause a turbulence that that can displace the liquid. Also make sure your PCV valve is working. It also sounds like you may have a 'blow by' issue.

Ford truck xlt ranger2.3 litter oil in throttle body ? good or bad


I found out with my old 94 Ranger 2.3L that the oil breather does not have a filter element, which causes oil to "naturally" (as Ford puts it) accumulate in the throttle body and air intake hose. You can get an inline breather element at any parts store for a few bucks and install it on the breather line without harming anything, and this will stop. Cheers.

Where is the pvc valve on a 2002 ford taurus? and how do i replace it?


Hello
The PCV is below the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation valve) valve close to the intake manifold below the intake air sensor, there is a tube running to it from the engine to recirculate exhaust air with fresh air, there is a clamp holding it to the air intake that you need pliers to remove, then you need to turn counter-clockwise 90 degrees to remove, do the reverse to install. to make it easier to access remove the upper intake. The PCV valve is not visible, however, you can identify it by the 3" inch long rubber hose that connects to the steel line running into the bottom of the intake. I have the part and am going to replace it soon, although Ford really makes it difficult to remove it - PCV valve is located just under the throttle body. remove air cleaner assembly from throttle body and you will see a u shaped hose running horizontally.

Where is the pvc valve and gasoline filter 2000 mercury marquis


Gasoline filter would most likely be underneath the driver side rear of the vehicle. Follow fuel lines from the tank, and it will lead you straight to it. The pvc valve should be in one of the valve covers with a rubber hose attached to it. This will run to the throttle body or air intake of the motor.

Motor running uneven ignition timing unstable even at idle speed


If you mean that the idle speed fluctuates, this is normally caused by build up of oil in the throttle valve housing. This oil is blown through the crankcase breather and gets worse as the engine gets old and wears. To remedy this remove intake hose from the throttle valve housing and clean out the oil build up in throttle valve housing in the area of the throttle butterfly. Open throttle valve to enable cleaning.

2001 ford escort, rough idle, runs smooth while driving, but tries to die at every stop-replaced vacuum lines, plugs, wires, etc.- nothing has worked


Your IAC may be defective, first check the canister purge valve by removing the large hose off the charcoal canster and plugging the hose with a bolt or something you can fit into it, then try it also check PCV valve and see if it's bad. there are more things to check like fuel filter fuel pump and or fuel strainer if fuel tank but would need to have more information to help.

Check vacuum hoses to MAP sensor. They can get porous after a while. Also check hose to EGR valve.

Can I change the electronic idler motor on my 1998 camry or does it require


The air intake tube is the plastic or rubber hose that connects the air filter box to the throttle body. It should be about 3-4 inches in thickness..... The motor is relitivly easy to change. Although, you will need to remove the throttle body to change because it is located on the botton of the throttle body. Let me know if you have any problems.
