If the water is in the oil then their are tests a shop can perform before they tear it down to rule out other factors but no way for us to guess correct sight unseen

Where can nissan3.3 loose water it does not over heat and it is not heater rad pressure drops while doing pressure test but nothing can be seen

the housing behind the pump impeller corrodes into small pin holes and water gets to the sump
check for grey colored oil
next is rust holes at the welsh plugs , normally at the back plugs in the block
check under the water pump housing for a small drain hole
this hole is used to drain water away from the bearings when the seal fails

My Jeep grand Cherokee 2.7 2003 mixes oil with water in the reservoir.

engine oil brown, or ATF oil, pink/red/maroon?
did you look in the rad neck , and then drain out some (by any means)
rad coolant to a jar
let it settle and LOOK, see that oil pool up.
and say, (engine oil or ATF to self?)
first check transmission oil (at dip, or drain it)

if it has has any signs of milkshake color, (cream) BINGO.
the 14psi coolant is pushing in to the transmission too.

try to understand. this:
trans cooler in rad, bottom can be breached.
when you start and engine the trans pump pushes AFT to the rad.
then when engine gets hot, the 12-14psi RAD pressure reverses this flow , coolant to trans.
why not pressure test the trans cooler next, or first.

Where is located oil filter at 2009 Chrysler grand voyager 2.8 crd limited

Oil change is not too bad a task

Take the car for a run to get the oil nice and warm.

Jack the front of the car up and put it on proper axle stands, not bricks or a piece of wood. Place the axle stands on firm,level ground and make sure they are supporting a solid part of the car, not just the floor pan but something structural.

There is a plastic tray that covers the underneath of the engine, in the middle of it there is a round plastic grommet about 3" in diameter. Pull this out and behind it is the sump drain plug. From memory you will need an 8 or 10mm allen key to undo it.

Steal the washing up bowl from the kitchen sink or another suitable plastic container - make sure it will fit under the car and hold at least 10 litres and remember that you will never be able to use it for anything other than oil again.

Place the container under the sump and undo the drain plug. Note the drain plug is usually quite tight and can take a bit of force to undo. Most people way over tighten them. If you do this on a windy day then it's surprising how much the wind can affect the flow of oil out of the engine and make a mess of the driveway. Go and have a cup of tea while the oil drains out.

The oil filter is at the rear of the engine and accessed from underneath. Again the oil filter will be tight and you will probably not be able to unscrew it by hand. I use something similar to this 2pc Strap Belt Wrench Spanner OIL Filter Pipe Pump REMOVER REMOV

A bit more oil will come out when you unscrew the filter, so be prepared for it. Take the new filter and smear a bit of clean oil around the rubber gasket on it's face and screw it in. Only tighten the filter by hand. Don't strain yourself when tightening it, but it needs to be firm.

Take the sump plug bolt and give it a wipe clean with a bit of tissue and make sure there is no grit stuck around the washer. Give the sump drain hole a quick wipe. The official line is that you should replace the washer on the sump plug, but I never do. Refit the sump plug. Again, don't strain yourself in tightening it up, but it does need to be firm.

Check the manual for the required amount and type of oil. Don't buy really cheap oil but also top of the range synthetic is way overpriced for what it is. If you know someone who has a Costco card then they do oil at a reasonable price.

Drop the car off of the jacks and put about 3/4 of the oil in through the filler cap on top of the engine. Start the car and let it idle for 30 seconds - this will get the oil into the filter. Turn the car off and top up the oil checking the dispstick level until it's between the min and max marks.
Again, start the car and let it idle for 30 seconds and then turn off and recheck the level on the dipstick.

Automatic trans will not shift to drive or reverse until warmup, progresively getting worse

YOUR main problem is either the filter in aoto sump is dirty and hard to get oil through 2nd the pumps both forwards and reverse are not working due to lack of oil, 3rd in turn when pumps start to get oil and work its wearing out the Bands before gripping and working straight away so answer..Is either get it looked at or take the g/b/sump off and wash out the filter and change the oil other wise its the big body valve which you cannot do anything with its the experts job then

Shifting slow

IF auto matic then you have a valve problem or the piston in high band is sticking.
1 check aoto matic oil if red and thin should be ok ,,but if turning black or dark red then you need to go to auto gear box shop and have it drained and sump off and bands checked out before you burn out the forward bands in g/box.....

Oil in the rad water but no water in the oil

I would say that there must be a small track between an oil channel and a water channel in a cylinder head gasket. The oil pressure is normally more than the water pressure, so the fluid transfer is one way - to the water system. The track will be very small, so flow will only occurs when oil pressure is above zero. It's all it can be, I think.

Grand voyger wont start in the heat

Have fuel pressure tested when it happens if you can, or take it to shop, let it run on a hot day, then check it. May be a fuel pump on it's way out.
