If the head gasket is installed properly and they head is o-kay as stated the only option left is a cracked engine block. Sorry for bad news.

Ifull the tank in the radiator but it will disaper but no leaking in the hose what would i do


If you are losing coolant then you have either an external or internal leak.
If you can find no indication of an external leak from the radiator, the radiator overflow tank, any of the hoses on the system or around the water pump fitting then you may well have an internal leak. Check the radiator overflow tank carefully and the hoses to it for any signs of external leakage.

An internal leak of coolant can be via a failed cylinder head gasket or a crack in the cylinder head or both. Coolant can then leak under pressure into the cylinders or into the engine's lubrication system and will then mix with the oil. Check the condition and colour of your oil for evidence of coolant contamination. Check your exhaust for a constant flow of white exhaust emissions which is evidence of coolant entering the combustion chamber.

If you have run the vehicle with the engine overheating this will generally cause failure of the cylinder head gasket and possibly a crack in the cylinder head.

Radiator


When this happens there are several causes. If this is engine oil, a head gasket is probably leaking. Worst would be cracked motor block.
There is also transmission fluid in the Radiator if you have a Water cooled Automatic transmission. The Radiator has 2 compartments and can sometime fail internally. Check transmission dipstick for signs of water beads.
There are sealing additives to help with this problem. They may help temporarily, but remember that oil pressure can exceed 60PSI and that water may backflow and mix and rust internal motor parts.
A compression test may help predict which head gasket is the problem so you do not have to remove both heads to replace a head gasket.

Engine oil getting into the radiater,any suggestions


Hi
Check your oil fill cap on the bottom for any signs of white milky looking oil, pull your dipstick and do the same. If yes, then you most likely have an intake manifold gasket leak, very, very common on these cars. Solution is to replace intake manifold gaskets, and check for signs of cracked intake while apart.

Loosing antifreeze but no leaks


The loss of antifreeze with no apparent leaks could be the sign of many things including blown head gasket, cracked tank, or leaking water pump. I would lean toward a head gasket first. Have you checked the oil for signs of antifreeze? A head gasket won't leak until the system is under pressure and running at normal temperature. You could also have a cracked head although that is pretty rare. Check the oil and plugs for signs of anti freeze. Also check the tanks on the side of the radiator they could be cracked which only leak while under pressure. Check all hose connections and if so equipped tranny cooler lines to make sure they are all attached correctly.

My daughter's 2000 Altima looks like there is oil in the radiator and no oil in the engine. Is this a blown head gasket? Where is the drain plug for the radiator? Better yet, what is the process for...


Could be a blown Head gasket or cracked head. Should be a drain at the bottom of the radiator I think on the drivers side. You will need to pull the heads off and have them checked Magnifluxed for cracks. If they find none then install new head gaskets and see what happens. I have the torque specs for your head bolts if you need them. Let me know.

I have a 05 grand prix with a 3800-v-6. have oil in raditor. 96000 miles. checking fluid in radiator noticed oil. before that i had a radiator flush. new radiator fluid too. the reservoir had some oil too.


Your head gasket is leaking, or you have a cracked cylinder wall.

chances are its the head gasket moreso than a cracked head.

grand prix are notorious for leaking head gaskets. have the block mic'd when you get it apart to make sure its not warped - if you put a new gasket in the same thing will happen.
