If it is oil, it means you have either a cracked head or a blown head gasket. If it's transmission fluid, then your transmission cooling line has broken inside the radiator.

Since your overflow is full, it more than likely is the Head gasket/cracked head & will require dissasembly to determine the extent of the damage. It is best not to operate the engine with this conditioin as the antifreeze can cause the pistons to sieze in the cylinders and the bearings will also suffer.

Seek immediate service to repair, or consider a replacement if the mileage is exceptionally high.

good luck.

    If the tranny fluid got into the system as I said in my comments above, it's the transmission line going through the radiator that has broken, you can repair that part of the problem with an aftermarket transmission cooler that you just hook the 2 trans lines to, then you plug the other lines on the radiator. This is only if it's transmission fluid. You need to completely flush the systems, Transmission & Cooling. good luck

You may have a seeping head gasket,If your vehicle has high miles you may want to consider installing a low mileage salvage engine.The labor it would take to replace the head gaskets you could swap the engine out for less.

It probably shows a problem with the engine head gasket leak.

RUNNING HOT


The only item left that controls the flow of the coolant is the thermostat. It is and usually replaced with the water pump or radiator because it is an inexpensive part. The thermostat blocks the flow of coolant until the vehicle warms up to the thermostats specified temperate recommended by the vehicle manufacture then opens to allow flow of coolant.

My mutsuibish shogun 1994 v6 keeps overheating and building up so much pressure that it keeps spliting the radiator hoses???????? PLEASE HELP


ur car is overheating because it does not have the capacity to dissipate high coolant temperature from ur engine to ur radiator or heat exchanger/ check auxilliary fan operation/ if electrically operated check fuse or motor condition/ if no motor check fans silicone oil/ could be too less/ check radiator condition it coul be blocked that why it restrict coolant flow/ check thermostatic valve condition could be stuck up and restrict coolant flow to the radiator...check coolant reservoir if water has oil in it/ if it has oil in it then ur engine cylinder head gasket is broken....

Clear oil dripping out of radiator, why?


The clear oil leaking from the Radiator? Are you sure its not leaking from the a/c condenser? That oil is almost clear in color. The other oil that flows through the radiator is the transmission fluid, and it's usually a reddish, brown color. Please have this issue checked for early repairs, and may be possible to be a cheap repair. Thank you.
