Engine was idling then just stopped appears to have siezed what would cause this

Lack of antifreeze and water (coolant) flowing into the engine. Water pump failure or not enough coolant in the system. Lack of motor oil flowing in the engine. Very low amount of motor oil in your car or oil pump failure.

HI, we have 2002 Nissan Primera that is losing water but not onto the ground beneath the car. There isn't any oil in the water or vice versa, but we can't see where the water goes? Any ideas

check the water level in the bottle. If the radiator cap is faulty it will allow excess hot water into the bottle but on cooling down the water is supposed to be sucked back into the radiator. It gets to a point where low water in the radiator will not be pushed out and you get the impresion that you are loosing water If this area checks out the only other place is through the combustion chamber as steam indicating a head gasket or cracked head./ Check the radiator cap first and while you are at it with the engine hot fill the radiator right up and run the engine at idle. If you see air bubbles blowing out the water intermittently put your money on that is where the trouble is. hrad gasket or cracked head

I have 1995 Golf MK3 VR6, just bought it, the guy reckons first he was loosing coolant rapidly, of some sort. He was then told his oil cooler is gone, so he got it changed, 3 months later the car just...

oil in the cooling system is an oil cooler in the radiatro failure
fix is new radiator
oil in a cooling system leads to overheating as it prevents the water from contacting the cylinder walls to transfer the heat
The system will have to be flushed professionally to fix the problem
have a compression test doen to check for head gasket problem as well

Vw golf losing coolant through the overflow (expantion tank) when cooling down. thermestat changed. not overheating even at high speed. no water in the oil or oil in the water. the oil is normal colour ....

If there is definately no air in the system and everything is working properly have you changed the pressure cap on the expansion bottle? Very unusual but if everything else is ok then it might be worth a shot. Caps have a pressure release mechanism biult into them.

Replaced water pump, flushed cooling system,no oil in coolant,still overheating after 30 mins of running

I don't see where you replace thermostat, when replacing water pump very good idea to also replace thermostat, if you done that and stillls over heat's, then you will need to do a block test any repair shop can do this or you can buy a test block kit at any auto part's, this test will let you know if you have bad cylinder head gasket's, you will not always get water in the oil when head gasket's are bad, about the only time that you get oil in coolant is if you have bad in take gasket, check oil dip stick for water.

The most cheapest way is as follow: Disconect the hoses from the oil cooler and connect them together.Clean coolant system from the oil and drive about 20 miles.Check again coolant system.If there is oil-change cylinder head gasket.If not-change oil cooler.If you are in London go to see Hall service centre N17 Ferry lane next to Hall subway station-Tottenham.Tell Duane -Sabo send me here.

Check the engine oil for a yellow sludge you should see it on the dip stick.If its just oil then it could be your oil cooler leaking oil into the water system.Or the only other thing that would cause this sludge in your water is the head gasket.
