Maybe a blown head gasket,cracked head or a cracked block.... A mechanic can probably tell by doing a compression test

Sounds like a possible head gasket problem. Although usually antifreeze will be in the oil not the other way around. Does it look like chocolate milk or strawberry milk?

The header tank bubbles when I start my 1998 freelander 20T2n engine


check your radiator fluid to see if it has oil in it, and check your oil to see if it has radiator fluid in it that's a common problem with a head gasket leak, also if you notice a lot of steam coming out of your exhaust because it can get through to the piston and burn the antifreeze, but if it's bubbling in your overflow tank it might just be a bad radiator cap keep that in mind good luck

Why is there a gurgling sound upon starting and the antifreeze blows out


Check head gasket. Pull spark plugs and perform compression check? Check plugs for fouling. Check engine oil for water/antifreeze
Hope this helps?

Keeps overheating and blows white smoke out the muffler


Check the oil for water/antifreeze, and the radiator/overflow tank for oil. Your probably looking at a blown head gasket.

White smoke from exaust


Hi,
When white smoke is spewing from your exhaust, it is usually an indication that something is burning. The typical culprit is a burning fluid from the vehicle, but other causes are possible.

Oil, transmission fluid and antifreeze are the three fluids most likely to be the cause of white smoke coming from your exhaust. Ruptured seals, leaky bolts and blown gaskets can expose oil to hot spots, making it burn. Pinholes or loose lines can cause antifreeze to spray on the engine, while transmission fluid can be sucked into the engine and burn


Here is a form of solution or prevention which can help you out;
Keep your fluids at the appropriate level and change them at the recommended intervals to reduce leaks and maintenance issues. Use the proper types of fluids as well. The wrong transmission fluid can cause your gears to stick and wear down, while the wrong oil can reduce lubrication on the engine and cause internal damage. Improper mixture or wrong type of antifreeze can cause overheating.


Good luck.

The car keep overheating, there is water in the radiator and the resevior tank 2000 jeep grand cherokee i check the oil their is no water found in the oil the water from both unit stays full


Sounds like your thermostat is stuck closed. Shouldn't be more than a $20 part from autozone and is simple to replace. Follow your top radiator hose to the motor and it will connect to your thermostat housing. Disconnect the hose (antifreeze will run out) unbolt the housing, and replace the old thermostat. Refill radiator and bleed the system.

If the water is flowing into the overflow tank then it is probably running a little hot. It is normal for a little bit to flow into if as the water heats and expands but there shouldn't be enough to overflow the tank. Have you tried changing the thermostat? If the thermostat isn't opening properly this will have all the effect in the world on how hot your engine runs.

2001 blazer - i have changed radiater,heatercore,waterpump and 2 thermostats - still overheating on me? coolant level is fine until it gets hot and boils out overflow tank? help!


Are your antifreeze 50/50 mix. Too much antifreeze ratio will cause over heating, the antifreeze will start to gel when it get's hot causing poor circulation. Water is the best liquid for heat transfer but it will also boil over and steam out the radiator cap, that is why antifreeze is added to keep this from happening. Looks like you have covered most of the base on your cooling system, Did you do a complete cooling system flush to get some of the corrosion out and it's been know for the orange antifreeze when gelled will clog up the cooling system. Make surer you have 50/50 mix and if you not sure you can buy a antifreeze meter at any large parts store like Auto Zone. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
