Have Radiator pressure tested you will know right away. It is still possible it is going in the oil just not enough to change the color right away.

06 Chevy 4.8 burning oil


Hi Dougles

The short answer on this is that almost any 9 year old vehicle burns oil. That said, it's generally the miles more than the years that lead to that. Wear on the cylinder walls and piston rings can lead to oil burning. Leaks can lose you oil, but you'll likely then notice oil puddles where you park. A more worrisome possibility would be if you're also losing coolant, as that could mean your head gasket is circling the grave. White smoke, bubbly or burst radiator hoses, or constantly needing to top off coolant could be a warning sign there.

On a vehicle of this pedigree, part of the question on burning oil is whether the car still runs ok, and how much it's costing you in extra oil. if you're burning an extra quart a month, you can dump a lot of years' worth of oil in before it'll come anywhere close to getting the valves, head, and pistons all redone. A lot of years.

Hoping this helps!

Loosing a lot of coolant


it has to be either leaking somewhere, or it is going through the engine-check passenger floor for heater core leak, or a hose/clamp leak near or over the exhaust. Is the system holding pressure when hot? {squeeze the upper radiator hose when hot, you should feel it as a solid hose, that is not collapsed}. If you have pressure, it is some sort of external leak if you do not see smoke coming out the exhaust.

I have a 2008 Suzuki Swift and i have liquid leaking onto my foot when it is next to my clutch. I think it is coming from the heater core??


You have a leaking heater core. You must remove the dash to replace it.Not a job for the unskilled home mechanic in most cases.

Is this TRUE that small Quantity Mobil Oil comes in coolent through INTERCOOLER in swift vdi ddis ?


i wouldnt think so.. the inter cooler on a turbo car is for air only. if your getting oil mixed with coolant the issue can either be a bad turbo or a blown head gasket or if your radiator has an oil cooler built into it then your radiator is bad and needs replaced..

it may not necessary be a blown head gasket but it indicates that it is losing water, it may be a leak somewhere, you wont always see a puddle on the floor, the only way to find the leak is to have it pressure tested by a radiator repairer to see where it is leaking...hope this helps.

Hello, if you are losing coolant as you say than the most probable place is through your head and into your exhaust system, it is highly likely you have a cracked head or a major head gasket leak. The only other place it can go is if you have a automatic vehicle with the cooler on the bottom of the radiator tank (crack between two tanks), it will go straight into your transmission, you can tell if the transmission oil is overfull and watery (thin and whitish).

My toyota 4runner is overheating but i have no water leak and yet my radiator is losing water


SOUND LIKE HEAD GASKET LEAK.CHECK ENGINE OIL FOR SIGNS ANTIFREEZE CONTAMINATION..OIL WILL LOOK LIKE MILK SHAKE.IF USING WATER IT EVAPORATES AT 212 DEGREES. ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE CAN CLIMB UP TO 220 DEGREES.IF OIL IN CRANK CASE LOOKS GOOD.ADD 50/50 WATER AND ANTIFREEZE. ANTIFREEZE WILL RAISE BOILING POINT TO KEEP COOLANT FROM EVAPORATING.SEE IF YOU LOSING WATER ITS BOILING AWAY LIKE WATER IN A TEA KETTLE.

I have a 2001 Saturn L. Oil is leaking, it is not the head gasket. Tore engine apart and replaced gaskets. Stopped leaking for about 6-7 months and it started to leak again. Did oil change last week...


If you have no visible signs of oil leaking out of the engine then the oil is being burnt. By visible leaking I mean a small puddle of oil under the car after having been left overnight. This can be cured by replacing shaft seals and gaskets. Burning oil is visible as smoke under deceleration (no throttle) and under full power(flooring it). This is due to worn/old valve stem seals(smoke under deceleration) and worn oil rings(smoke under acceleration) This can only be cured by a major engine overhaul or engine replacement. Bear in mind that losing a pint of oil in 1000 miles is acceptable.
