If your referring to the radiator there is a drain mounted on the lower left or right corner facing the engine. It will either look like a plastic wing nut that you unscrew. OR it will look like there's just a nipple coming out of the radiator. Use a 1/4" drive in it to turn it a 1/4 turn. Be sure to wait until the coolant cools off before you open the drain.

Water detected in sump would it come from the oil cooler


Would need more information on the year, manufacturer, model and engine size. That said, most engine oil coolers do not use engine coolant as a cooling medium. They are mounted in front of the radiator and use air cooling. If that is the case, water in the sump would most likely be due to a blown head gasket, cracked head, or cracked engine block.
Oil coolers for automatic transmissions are often installed internal to the vehicle radiator, and if one of these breaks, then coolant will infiltrate the transmission sump and transmission oil will infiltrate the cooling system.

Oil getting into water


if it is an automatic ( make and model omitted in question) there is every chance that it is transmission oil from a burst cooler in the radiator tank. The fix is a new radiator or and air to air cooler core fitted in front of the radiator. If the engine is a diesel or an engine that has a sump oil cooler then the oil core has burst allowing engine oil into the radiator vial the coolant system. It may be from a failing head gasket where the oil hole to the rocker gear is leaking across to a water jacket

Water in oil what is wrong how to fix


water in the oil ,can be from head gasket failure ,cracked head but most probably from corrosion behind the water pump impellor. If the engine has an engine oil cooler then the cooler unit is suspect. Check any unit attached to the engine that uses coolant for cooling

If the water is in the transmission oil then it will be the heat exchanger in the radiator tank and will require a new radiator

Water leaked into transmission and transmition oil into radiator


Your transmission cooler is cracked. Discontinue using that cooler immediately. Get some caps, cap off the cooler. Replace the cooler with an after unit vor about $80.00. Change the transmission fluid and engine coolant before you drive any further.

Hi, i have automatic passat 1999 model and recently water happens to get into the gear box and it control board, i experiences a boom sound anytime the gear is changed, the oil has been changed by the...


If no external leak and the transmission fluid colour looks white, the problem belongs to the automatic gearbox oil cooler. The oil cooler has broke mixing the gearbox oil and coolant causing this milkshake. It's a small radiator core type oil / water heat exchanger. It is cracked inside and transmission oil is mixed with engine coolant. Because the transmission oil pressure is greater than engine coolant pressure, the transmission fluid level drops. See also the coolant colour inside recovery coolant reservoir inder bonnet! It could be like this:

1.6 hdi when i rev the engine it sucks the rubber pipe in from the intercooler and will splutter and wont rev past 3000 revs?Thanks.


I'm not very conversant with your vehicle, as we have few where we are, but there are certain parameters to follow. First I would check for a restriction in the inter cooler or the air cleaner. The element may have become very contaminated.
  • Open the air cleaner and try the engine with the element removed.
  • If that doesn't work it will mean removing the inter cooler and checking for a restriction inside it.
  • The inter cooler unit is usually fixed with four five or six bolts.
  • It will also have an electrical connection for the cooling fan.
  • disconnect the fan at the socket provided.
  • Remove the clips for the rubber ducting and ease them off from the inter cooler.
  • Check the work outlined above
  • Your vehicle is a diesel powered, so if it's required to clean out the inter cooler unit, do not leave any water inside, as water can damage the engine, even breaking pistons.
  • Water is non compressible. The water won't accommodate the pistons, or rings, not even the cylinder head, each will bend shatter or break to accommodate the water.
The last suggestion is to replace the ducting as these may have become weak, but I doubt that.

I had the same problem with my T5 130. My mechanic replaced the head gasket to no avail,then we checked the oil filter,that was ok.then we went on to a web forum and found out that the AXD engine suffers from water pump failure.We took it off and it was corroded,the seal had failed and was pumping water into the block.My advice,CHECK WATER PUMP FIRST! Good luck Marc,Somerset.
