Kerosene works well too. Run a gallon of it with some cheap oil and fill only to max oil level on dipstick. Run engine for 5-10mins with this mixture and DO NOT rev engine....Just idle. Then drain and refill with all new oil and replace oil filter as well.
You have major problems if you did not locate why you got coolant in the engine oil. Blown head gasket or the typical on this engine which is leaking intake manifold gaskets. If this is the case DO not use regular intake gaskets. Use the Fel-pro problem solvers which run around $50 for a complete manifold gasket changeout which includes one valve cover gasket and distributor gasket and orings for steel fuel lines at the rear of engine. Problem solver gasket can be easily identified by looking for a solid piece of steel that runs the whole length of the gasket.

Not much. buy some lucas oil engine flush fo the oil system,and run it thru. flush your cooling systemas well. this is all contingent that you fixed the problem that caused this in the first place. if you have...then around 50 bucks.

Was driving my 1999 chevy venture this morning after 12 miles had no heat & temp gauge pegged in the red. then went down & came right back up. Stopped & turned it off for 20 minutes or so. ...


You are describing a slow coolant leak and the resultant no heat and blockoverheating symptoms. The no heat is because there is insufficient coolant to cycle through the heater core, and the chuggin you describe is the engine indicating serious overheating.
With engine cold, you must add water--not anti-freeze--to the radiator itself, until it reaches the top of the radiator, then start the engine. If you do not have a radiator cap in addition to the overflow bottle (some vehicles don't), you must still add water to the radiator, even if you have to bypass the overflow bottle hose to do it. Add water until no more will go into the radiator. Start engine, let idle until operating temperature is reached. Thermostat should open and a good bit of the water will "sink" into the depth of the radiator. If you have no radiator cap, observe the temperature guage. When it reaches normal operating temp, when the thermostat opens, the temp will drop briefly at first, and you will notice warm air from the heater/defroster.
Once engine is warm and known to be full of water, seal radiator cap and/or system, and let idle for 30 minutes. Use this time to locate the "mystery leak." They can be very hard to find, and some won't leak until after the engine is turned off. During this idle period, observe the vehicle exhaust from the tailpipe as well as looking for actual water leaks: sometimes a bad head gasket can be diagnosed this way; if the exhaust is white and thick like steam, and smells like anit-freeze, you have a more serious problem. It is possible that after the repeated overheating cycles you have endured you may now have both a "mystery leak" and a blown head gasket.
Once leak is located, your next step is to let engine cool completely, drain the water, fix the leak, and then and only then add new antifreeze of the proper rating and ratio recommended by Chevy for your vehicle.
Anytime you drain a cooling system and refill it, it is necessary to check the overflow bottle at least 3 times in the first week after repair to ensure that you have the proper coolant level, and have not either missed another leak or not correctly repaired one. You MUST check it before you drive the vehicle the second time after the first repair attempt because it is normal to need to add more coolant than you added initially after the repair because of air trapped in the cooling system that will only be expelled after the first start/stop heating cycle. If after 1 week of daily normal driving you have only added a little more coolant once, and there are no more problems, you can be very comfortable that you have fixed your car.

While driving my 1995 honda accord sounded like a diesel engine and water just started pouring out on the drivers side back by the oil drain pan away from the radiator.


ther is a blown radiator hose or worse there is a hole in the engine. locate the leak and fix it. the sound you heard is most likly cause the engine over heated and important parts of the engine expanded when hot. if lucky it may be just a hose or a water pup that went bad. also if the bearing went bad in the water pump it would make a horible sound also.

1999 Chevy Astro Van. Don't know exact model # of


You should have a 4l60E in your astro van. Which is electrically controlled, so no vacuum modulator. However, to address the ventilation selector not working... look for a vacuum line exiting the firewall and going to the passenger rear of the intake manifold. You will likely find it broken or disconnected there.

Leaking fluid in my 1999 Chevy Malibu


When they changed the water pump and the leak stopped then the water pump was bad. If they changed the water pump and was still leaking then then it was not the water pump. 
Where is the fluid leaking from, if there is white smoke coming from the tail pipe then good chance is that the head gasket is gone and pull the dip stick out to see if there is antifreeze mixxing with the engine oil.
It's common that the 3.4 V6 has intake manifold gasket go bad and leak. Check all the heater hose first, and try to find out where the leak is coming from.
Good luck and keep me posted, glad to help you as much as i can.
