What makes a 04 envoy run hot and lose oil?


A hot running engine is usually caused by a cooling system problem. Make sure the coolant level is full and the thermostat.. rad fan.. radiator cap and water pump are all functioning correctly. Make sure there are no restrictions in front of the radiator to obstruct air flow and coolant circulates properly throughout the radiator. As for losing oil, check for the obvious..... Leaks. If no major leaks and you have a high mileage engine, suspect the oil to be burning within the engine. A constantly hot running engine can also cause the oil to break down quicker resulting in consumption, especially if oil changes are neglected

Diesel run in radiator inside


Diesel oil in with the coolant, in the radiator? Very unlikely. Engine oil in radiator indicates a leakage like head gasket, cracked block or head. Transmission oil in radiator indicates a leaky radiator where the hydrolic fluid is cooled inside the radiator.

Engine oil in radiator


i had this same problem before, in my case it was that the transmetion oil runs through the radiator to be cooled and the part that the transmition oil runs through had cracked. I put a new after market radiator in and never had another problem.

Got a 311cdi mercedes sprinter ,mileage is 250k drives well but engine is making loud tapping noise & there is oil in radiator. please help.


Your low on oil (the tapping noise) because its in your cooling system. Your vehicle uses the radiator as a cooling system for your engine oil. It runs through it to help cool the engine oil. If you have oil in the radiator, you need a new radiator before you cause more damage to the engine and the cooling system.

I have Mercedes Benz sprinter 210td 1998 170000 miles done,I got oil in radiator,engine not smoking,no water in exhaust,no over heating no creamy from oil cap,I change oil after 3000to4000miles,engine...


Consider if it is engine oil or transmission oil or power steering oil. Transmission oil or power steering oil would indicate a bad radiator. Engine oil could be a bad radiator also if the radiator includes an engine oil cooler ("extra cooling") but usually indicates an intake or head gasket leaking.

Overheating, water in oil


You have a bad head gasket. You will not know how bad the damage is until the engine is disassembled. Chances are, a head has warped though, and will need to be machined.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
