Engine oil mixing into coolant


The only place, oil and water share a gasket is the cylinder head gasket, oil and water galleries run through the engine block and head via the head gasket. The cylinder pressure will be OK, it's the oil pressure that's putting the oil in the coolant, the gasket has gone between the water and oil galleries or there is an internal crack (unlikely). A coolant pressure test should show it up.

Engine overheats and I've changed the water pump already along with the thermostat. What could be the problem?


many things can cause an engine to over heat
Look for any collasped water coolant hose. That will cause overheating'
If the inside of the engines oil cap looks to have a creamy filling in it that will be from coolant mixing with the engine oil. Head gasket leak and can cause overheating
A clogged up heater core or radiator can cause overheating
A loose or worn seal on the radiator fill cap can cause overheating as well

Engine overheat, A/C shut off, fan hot


Chances are that your engine is ok. Bad engine overheating can seize the engine. Less extensive overheating can crack the engine especially the cylinder head and lead to power loss or mixing of water and engine oil. If water is mixing with oil, the oil looks milky. If your car is not losing power and the oil looks normal then chances are that there was no damage to your engine.

Just make sure that whatever caused the overheating in the first place is sorted out - perhaps the radiator flushing resolved the cause of the overheating.

I have a lot of prolem with my kia carnival model 2002, overheating than mixing oil with water several times


Overheating then oil mixing with water most of the time means a problem with the headgasket. Not a good idea to drive it until you have it repaired, you can ruin the engine.
