    Does cokkent stand for Coconut? Perhaps you are meaning 'Pumpkin', which is a slang term for a Differential.

Cars generally overhead when engine coolant is below acceptable levels. That can be caused from leakage, blockage or equipment malfunction.

  • Inspect coolant level in the vehicle's reservoir or radiator.
  • Inspect radiator and heater hoses for cracking causing leaking.
  • Inspect the radiator for leaking.
  • Inspect the inside of radiator for smudge build-up, a sure sign that the water jackets might be restricted.
  • Inspect water pump for leaking or broken belt (serpentine belt)
  • Check to ensure water pump properly functioning, does the pump's pulley turn?
Repair or replace any faulty item.

cracked block. once it heats up the crack gets bigger and the oil gets thinner which makes more oil burn. run car without the oil cap on and see if lots of air/ oil comes out if so thats blow by and you need a new engine.

My 1996 Toyota Camry has an oil pump leak


Keep an eye on the oil level get this repaired as soon as you can and remember that the oil of a car does two things not only does it lubricate but it also takes internal heat away from the parts that are being lubricated. Friction cause heat heat causes bearing fatigue so make sure you get this repaired as soon as possible and keep an eye on that level. Don't over fill that is just as bad as not having enough oil in it.
