This could be one of two problems.1.someone has mixed two different types of antifreeze that are not compatible,you need to flush/ refill asap.2.you do not have the right amount of antifreeze in the system and its rust dust(mud). system needs full flush/refill to 50/50.when you do flush.flush backward,up to the reservoir,not down(i take the top hose off the heater,block the pipe,and connect a hose to the heater manifold,if you can get to it.....that way you wont get any air in system.

I have a mud like substance in my radiator and qwhat causes that


What you see is a mixture of water, oil and fuel, Unfortunately you car has a blown head gasket or cracked head, you need to get a mechanic to completely diagnose it as the engine will sustain more damage if you continue to use it.

1998 buick century blows cool air no heat. cant find the heater coil fuse if there is one. any ideas


It could be one of the following or a combination of the two:
  1. System is low on antifreeze/coolant
  2. Bad thermostat
Assuming the coolant level is good, the odds are pretty good you have a bad thermostat.

Car losing antifreeze water, no visable leaks, car overheating. 1998 buick century, v6


if you have no visible leaks and it is overheating then it sounds like you have a head gasket leak internally.the coolant is going some where .get the cooling system pressure tested to make sure you don`t have a leak externally.if the coolant is not leaking out the radiator then this indicates the thermostat is not stuck.what ever the problem is change the thermostat at the time of repair.
