I need to know how to tell if i have a blown head \head gasket


If you car is overheating often and white smoke come out the tail pipe when running, good chance it is. Easiest way it to check is the fluid in the radiator - look for oil floating on the top. If your cooling reservoir (off white container connected by a smaller black hose to the radiator) has fluid in it, check it or you can open the radiator cap (only when the engine is cool - hasn't been running - don't touch it until it's sat for a few hours if you used it) and use a turkey baster or similar to pull some fluid out. If you see some oil floating, it's most likely a head gasket.

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

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.

2001 F-250 Super duty V-10 small amount of oil in radiator


oil in a radiator indicates that the transmission oil cooler in the radiator tank has failed and leaking transmission oil into the radiator
there are 2 possible fixes
fix one is a new radiator
fix 2 is to give the radiator oil cooler a miss altogether and opt foe an air cooler mounted in front of the radiator
the advantages here are that the radiator then has a bigger capacity to handle the engine heat as there is no hot transmission oil adding to the engine heat
the second advantage is that the transmission oil is being cooled to ambient temp and not engine temp which makes for longer transmission oil life
the disadvantage is that it cost a bit more than a radiator initially but the long term savings are real
oil to air oil coolers are available from auto transmission shops and quality auto spares shops
