No oil coolant mix and good compression lets think that the head gasket is good.

If engine is rough a good start point could be scanning the ECM with and OBD code reader.

Give more detail on the problem if you want a more accurate diagnosis.

    If one cylinder has no spark then it is either the cable or the distributor.
    Ensure that spark plug is good, and that the cables from distributor are connected in right order.
    Try replacing the cable, if that does not fix it , then go for the distributor or distributor cap.

Hi, I have an 06 kia sorento. We are losing quite a bit of coolant daily. It keeps throwing a cylinder 2 & 4 misfire daily. All plugs, wires, and coils replaced. T/stat and rad cap both replaced.

possibly out the exhaust ports
have a compression test done
have a coolant system pressure test done by a professional radiator shop to check for leaks while stationary
remember that misfires are moe probable from dirty injectors and wires than plugs and coils

Looks like i have oil in my coolant its a 1972 chevy 350 i also notice when you first start the car the guage reads 50 lbs of oil pressure when it warms up it shows about 20

Perform a compression test on all cylinders. Unfortunately one of the only things that will cause oil and coolant to mix is a blown or failing head gasket. Good luck.

Why do i have oil in my antifreeze

Transmission cooler inside the plastic parts of the radiator may be leaking and causing the oil to mix with the coolant. GM also has a problem with their lower intake gaskets leaking, which would allow the oil and coolant to mix. Last possibility is the head gasket is leaking and mixing the oil into the coolant side but not the other way. Check your transmission fluid for mixing evidence. Another thing to do is pressure test your cooling system (Radiator, hoses ect) to see if there is a leak. Another test to try out is compression.

Ok I have a 2002 venture van 3400 misfire occurring was loosing coolant did intake gaskets had heads done checked and did head gaskets. Now misfire cyl 3 only. Changed plug wires coil no change compression...

you mean the injector # 3 was dry ? Is that injector connector plug-in, wires ok ? do anything different ? Is harness ok ? Is plug wire ok ? you need to make sure you have power thru and to #3 , even new wires can be bad ! check for a short, continuity, and good ground. any codes stored in the ECM ?

My oil is looking milky but, I don't drive the car that much

More than likely you have a head gasket that is letting motor oil seep into the cooling system.

I noticed a milky substance on the dipstick of a 2002 cavlier

this is coolant mixing with the oil it creates the off white gunk. you may have a head gasket leaking. does it blow white smoke? the intake may have a leak as well. need to find the leak and repair it to stop this mix from happening. a good shop should posses a dye test system to pinpoint the actual leak source. hope this helps

Sorry to say that the head gasket was blown. Coolant already mixed with oil to generate that milky thing. There is no power since there is not compression due to the leak going through the head gasket.

Engine runs but has steam coming out of exhaust pipe

The ONLY way coolant can get into the crankcase is through a crack in the cylinder head, block, or head gasket. THE ONLY WAY!.

Checking compression was a good idea, and you've confirmed that is not where the leak is. It could be somewhere else within a head, the block, or head gasket.

Any gasoline engine will blow steam from the exhaust pipe on start-up and a few minutes running. May even stink, depending on how sensitive your nose is to smell.

I think your going to have to dig deeper into this, if you truly had coolant in the oil. But to tell you exactly where to look is not going to be easy.

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.
