SOURCE: water heating radiator and water expulsion oily reddish color

Sounds like you have transmission fluid in the antifreeze. The transmission cooler might be leaking in the radiator. If it is, replace the radiator.

SOURCE: what is the problem if the engine oil cannot reach

it means that there is no hole in the head gasket to allow the oil to get to the rocker gear. That means that either you have placed the gasket on the wrong way round or the gasket you have is not exactly right for your engine. Simple check is to remove the cam shaft and see how far a piece of wire can be pushed down the oil hole .

SOURCE: If engine oil does not reach in Engine head cylinder, What are its reasons?

wow no year ! 1967 to now. wow2
or engine size or type or gas or diesel.
no engine stated.
great question, engine mileage is? 100k 500k miles?????
other shoe drops is this engine been dismantled?

well, is oil pressure at spec. at block gallery ? y/n
if yes, then the head gasket put on upside down?
or if not that, the head oriface is blacked.
or if gallery pressure is low , the pump pickup clogged or 0ring bad sucking air in to oil pump?

we i rebuild and engine (100%)
i do top end oiling tests, using just my starter and no fuel.
if that fails, the means I failed, as can , and old engine
1: top end fail, to oil, , is pressure at spec>?
2: is head gasket on right, (i buy felpro, that is marked UP)
3: is pump primed,(no gallery sender pressure)
4: is screen clean, and all seals, good on pump and oil pickup path?
5: if pressure is good, is the head orifice clear. the heads on engines have an oil resticter, that keeps main bearing from BURNING if cam shaft does a HARD FAILURE>


and lots more, not one can we guess. ever. given no year.

Water in the oil

Radiator coolant in the engine oil is normally an indication of a failed cylinder head gasket or a crack in the cylinder head or both.

Running the engine in an overheated condition will cause head gasket failure and often a crack in the cylinder head.

The problem you have is coolant is escaping into the engine's lubrication passages via the failed head gasket or head crack and contaminating the engine oil. If not fixed you will cause further damage to the engine as oil contaminated with radiator coolant cannot adequately lubricate the engine.

Running a leak down test on each cylinder will confirm the leak. In this case you are going to need to have the cylinder head removed and thoroughly checked for cracks and any warpage as well as a new cylinder head gasket fitted. The condition the engine block surface will also need to be checked.

My 92 diesel nissan terrano is sitting at an abnormally hot temperature. Any ideas why? Thanks!

Is the thermostat opening? Either take it out and test it in hot water, to check if it is opening, or just replace it.
Is the temperature sender unit faulty? The engine temperature might be fine, but the gauge may be getting lied to.
Check in the radiator, remove the cap (not when hot, as if boiling, and the pressure is released it will all want to revert to steam instantly, and will scald with a fountain of steam), and look for scum or oil and when running, check for bubbles and exhaust gas smell in the radiator, these would indicate a leaking cylinder head gasket, or cracked cylinder block, or cracked cylinder head.
Another potential, is that the transmission is running hot (heavy towing in overdrive ?), as the radiator has the transmission oil lines going into the bottom, and is used as an inter-cooler for the transmission oil.
Is there antifreeze / corrosion inhibitor in the cooling system, and is it still active (not expired), as the dissimilar metals in motors, act like a battery (electro-galvanic corrosion), this will cause pin holes of corrosion to eat through the cylinder cooling jacket, and allow hot exhaust gas / oil / coolant to mix. All engines, especially modern ones, need antifreeze / corrosion inhibitor, and prferably deionized water, so that the coolant is not an electrolyte.

Over heating after a hit n run in a restraunt parking lot, no video, now I have to fix it.

1) the overheating can be a) engine b) transmission c) radiator
see the radiator steps and fix it. God bless you

Look for signs of coolant leakage on the garage floor, driveway or ground under your vehicle.

  • 2 Check the level of coolant in the overflow reservoir or inside the radiator by removing the radiator cap. The engine must be cool before the radiator cap can be safely removed. If the coolant level in the overflow reservoir or radiator is unusually low, odds are good that you have a leaky car radiator.
  • 3 Inspect the radiator to find where it is leaking. There may be an obvious hole or other defect that is easy to spot, such as deposits of coolant and an orange or green discoloration.
  • 4 Remove the radiator for further testing if the leak cannot be found.
  • 5 Use a radiator pressure test kit to fill the radiator with the amount of air specified by the radiator cap. Submerge the radiator in a tank of water and watch for escaping air bubbles. The source of these bubbles is the leak that must be repaired.
  • 6 Pour the stop-leak additive into the radiator to fix small leaks, following the instructions on the product label.
  • 7 Use a soldering iron to patch larger defects in radiators made of copper and brass, which are frequently found in older models. An epoxy gun may do the trick for the aluminum radiators in newer vehicles.
  • 8 Refill the vehicle's cooling system after the radiator leak is repaired.

  • see the steps for head gasket motor:
    Examine the Acura to make sure the engine is cold before you start working under the hood. Separate the negative battery cable from the terminal. Slide a clean pan or container beneath the radiator to allow the cooling system to drain the coolant. Drain the motor oil from the reservoir. Release the pressure from the fuel system.

  • 2 Write the name of each upper engine part on a label and tag each component. Release, remove or slide off the belts, assemblies, mounting bolts and the upper engine car parts: engine covers, strut brace, intake air duct, upper engine covers, cruise control cable attached to the throttle body, accelerator, wire harness holder, mounting brackets on the engine, accessory drive belts, power steering pump along with attached lines, ground cable on the engine, spark plugs and distributor. Use a wrench to loosen bolts. Use a socket to undo lugs. Some part can slide off or disconnect with a gentle pull, such as hoses.

  • 3 Remove or separate the hoses: water bypass hose, brake booster vacuum tube and evaporative emissions -- or "EVAP" -- canister hoses attached to the throttle body, heater hoses, top radiator hose, bottom radiator hose, and intake air bypass control valve vacuum hose.
  • 4 Separate the electrical connectors: intake air temperature indicator connector, idle air control valve connector, throttle position indicator, manifold absolute pressure indicator connection, engine coolant temperature indicator connector, radiator fan switch connectors, crankshaft position sensor connection, top dead center -- or TDC -- indicator connector, engine oil pressure switch connection and exhaust gas recirculation valve connection.
  • 5 Remove or disconnect the intake manifolds, exhaust manifolds, crankshaft pulley, water passage assembly and front timing belt cover, ignition coils and fuel rails.
  • 6 Align the crankshaft marks and camshaft pulley to position the engine to TDC. Glide off the timing belt. Remove the camshaft pulley and the cover of the rear timing belt.
  • 7 Use a wrench to turn each of the cylinder head bolts a third counterclockwise in the appropriate loosen sequence. For example, the 2001 to 2004 Acura RL models cylinder head bolt numbers on the upper level loosening sequence includes 1, 7, 5 and 3. The cylinder bolt numbers on the lower section include 4, 6, 8 and 2. Take off the cylinder head and remove the oil control orifice.
  • 8 Clean the cylinder block assembly and gasket mating surfaces. Review for wear and tear, such as dents, nicks or defects. Position clean motor oil on the cylinder head bolt threads and cylinder head bolts. Use new O-rings to position the oil control orifices. Lower the new head gasket in place and align with the dowels. Position the cylinder head on the cylinder block. Position the new bolts in place. Assure the engine is set to TDC.
  • 9 Tighten the new bolts in a three-step procedure with a torque wrench. For 2001 to 2004 Acura RL models, torque to 29 foot-pounds for the first pass. Torque to 51 foot-pounds on the second pass and torque to 72 foot-pounds for the third pass.
  • 10 Replace the Acura parts in the opposite order of removal. Note the labels you placed on each component. Install and reconnect the exhaust manifold, timing belt covers, crankshaft pulley, water passage assembly, intake manifold, ignition coils, spark plugs, ground cables, intake air duct and belts. Reconnect the connectors, hoses and tubes.
  • 11 Refill the oil reservoir with new clean motor oil. Place coolant in the cooling system. You can use the old coolant if it is not old and it is clean. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Turn the car on and let it run for about five minutes. Examine the vehicle for leaks.

    91 cressida running rough

    The mechanic is probably tight, these engines have had known head gasket issues at cylinder #6 especially, have the system tested by doing a block test, most repair shops can do this, it's a chemical test that checks for hydrocarbons in the coolant, you can do this yourself, just buy the test kit a a autoparts store and follow the instructions.

    Where is the oil pressure sensor located on a 1996 murcury cougar

    Look for the oil pressure sending unit on the block or the cylinder head on the V-6 or V-8 models. --- OIL PRESSURE TEST Check for proper oil pressure at the sending unit passage with an externally mounted mechanical oil pressure gauge (as opposed to relying on a factory installed dash-mounted gauge). A tachometer may also be needed, as some specifications may require running the engine at a specific rpm.
    1. With the engine cold, locate and remove the oil pressure sending unit.
    2. Following the manufacturer's instructions, connect a mechanical oil pressure gauge and, if necessary, a tachometer to the engine.
    3. Start the engine and allow it to idle.
    4. Check the oil pressure reading when cold and record the number. You may need to run the engine at a specified rpm, so check the specifications.
    5. Run the engine until normal operating temperature is reached (upper radiator hose will feel warm).
    6. Check the oil pressure reading again with the engine hot and record the number. Turn the engine OFF.
    7. Compare your hot oil pressure reading to specification. If the reading is low, check the cold pressure reading against the chart. If the cold pressure is well above the specification, and the hot reading was lower than the specification, you may have the wrong viscosity oil in the engine. Change the oil, making sure to use the proper grade and quantity, then repeat the test. Low oil pressure readings could be attributed to internal component wear, pump related problems, a low oil level, or oil viscosity that is too low. High oil pressure readings could be caused by an overfilled crankcase, too high of an oil viscosity or a faulty pressure relief valve.

    Losing antifreeze, but I see no leakage on the

    If you are loosing radiator water/antifreeze and you see 'white' smoke out of your exhaust then it is likely that you are seeing steam: this usually indicates that you have a blown cylinder head gasket or have a cracked ylinder head: both situation will cause overheating of your engine. You can also check this situation by waiting until the engine is COLD, opening the radiator cap, refill with clean radiator fluid/water, restart the engine and see if the water as seen in the radiator is violently bubbling. Another condition before even starting the car again is if you see oil/white-brown staining in the radiator fluid caused by cracked cylinder head or gaskets letting engine oil in the radiator circuit. In any case, it is a critical sitation and you should get it checked and fixed immediately.
    Hope it helps and please let me know if I have assessed the correct situation.

    Location of a oil sending unit 1996 ford 3.8liter 6cly

    if it's anything like the 8 cyl version it should be right up near the oil filter which is in the bottom front of the engine, just behind the radiator. Not sure though, the 8 cylinder is a mess to work on. I know where mine is only because it's leaking.

    Overheating and change engine oil ... oil was changed one week ?

    it seems like the radiator of your car needs attention. check for coolant level in it, when its cold. if les add some coolant and then see if the problem persists.
    --than there are chances of chocking in the coolant pipes, may be they not reached to engine..  
    --Check the chock,, that it is not turned on. 
    --May be sum loosing nut in engine.
