Sorry for the delay. if it is like that than your head gasket is bad. that is the only two common points other than the head and cylinder wall! if you do the head gasket make sure to take it to the machine shop to be pressure checked and resurfaced just because it's aluminum.

good luck and if you need any more help please ask

How do you bypass the oil coolant


Not sure why you would want to unless it's leaking, but if you must, disconnect both lines and fashion a hose to connect them. DO NOT USE FUEL HOSE! There is a special type hose made for oil cooler lines. Not much pressure involved here, so if you can get a hose that fits over end of lines, use clamp and secure it all out of harms way = done.

My a/t oil temp light is on car would die when I accelerate.right on course with everything I've read &it's Slottook it to mechanic he says no codes thinks it's ecu


Check your oil if it's not the color it normally us and looks slushy than you have a blown head gasket that's when your oil mixes in with your antifreeze and to fix that you either need a new engine or change the head gasket

Car overheating


You may have a blown engine head gasket. Check your oil to see if it is milky because water is getting into the oil, and check the water to see if oil is getting into the coolant.
If you have either of these, you may need to have a new head gasket for the engine, and hopefully you do not have a cracked engine head.
This will require a fair bit of work to fix correctly. Your local garage or mechanic may be your next call.
There are some products you can use in the coolant for either of these, but it is only a temporary fix.

Heater doesnt work but ac does


Assuming the fan blows OK but you have no heat. Go to the firewall and notice where the heater hoses enter and exit the cabin. You'll notice a metal manifold and also a rubber bypass hose that connects the two. This bypass hose is a design problem and causes the coolant to bypass the heater core which is located inside the cabin under the dash. Over time, the heater core gets blocked by gunk and you'll get no heat. All the coolant flows through the bypass hose when this happens. The fix is to flush the heater core itself. It's difficult to access at the firewall, so I disconnect the two hoses at the engine itself and attach a garden hose to flush it. Before doing this you must clamp (vice grips) the bypass hose so that all of the water goes through the heater core.

Maybe it is transmission oil . If it is coolant change the coolant bypass hose and upper main hose for a start .

First take care of the coolant problem. Short term you can fill the radiator & reserve tank with water. Run the car & watch for leaks on coolant hoses, radiator, etc. As long as the car runs ok, don't worry about oil around plugs until you get the car to run cool.

Was the smoke white? if so it is probably your head gasket you can still save it if you want as long as the head isnt cracked as well then it probably just isn't worth fixing and from the sounds of it sorry to say but I cant be sure with out seeing it

NO COOLANT IN RADIATOR, BUT COOLANT IS RESOUVIOR


First thing to do is start it up and stand by the exhaust, and if you can smell anything like antifreeze chanses are its a head gasget, if you don't see any puddles under car its got to be going someware and chanses are its out the exhaust. The only true way to know where its going is to do a cooling pressure test.

1985 cadillac fleetwood V8 4.1 blows cold air out but no heat


if you had heat before the problem than there is probably air still in the system . dont know your motor set-up , but it might have a bleed valve on the thermostat housing or a bypass line . if not , start the car and let it warm up ......in the mean time take the upper radiator hose off @ the radiator . When it heats up to normal temp , the coolant should flow out of the hose . that will tell you that the thermostat is opening , and it will also get the air out of the system @ the same time . As soon as it starts to flow , hook the hose back up and tighten . refill the cooling system back to the full line , than check for heat
GM is bad about getting air trapped in the system .

My '97 Tahoe overheated and now it won't start


Probably just low on coolant causing air pockets. Start it up with the radiator cap of and add coolant, then check to see if the water pump, intake gaskets, or coolant bypass connector on passenger front corner of the intake manifold is leaking.
