Make sure it is engine oil,and not transmission oil,If it does not run hot,and it is engine oil,the intake is most likely the problem.

I have a slight amount of oil in my radiator, I had this years ago and my dealer fixed it and said it was something small. Anyone know what it maybe or had the same experience. Thanks


This is a concern that requires immediate attention. Oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil is an indication that the integrity of the engine has been compromised and a passage has developed between the oil and coolant.

Installed in some radiators is a transmission coil cooler that is connected usually at the bottom of the radiator by two metal tubes. A failure internally of the radiator could breach the separation.

Head gaskets that have coolant pass through openings can also be a failure allowing the liquids to mix.

Look for coolant in the engine oil.
Check for oil level overfull

Look for steam from exhaust

Hope this helps.

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

Oil in the radiator


oil in the radiator is from a failed transmission oil cooler that is in the radiator tank. You will also have water in the transmission oil as when you shut off the engine the coolant pressure may enter the oil lines through the crack in the cooler.

Consider if it is engine oil or transmission oil or power steering oil. Transmission oil or power steering oil would indicate a bad radiator. Engine oil could be a bad radiator also if the radiator includes an engine oil cooler ("extra cooling") but usually indicates an intake or head gasket leaking.

Remove timing cover and replace gasket. The pump is in the cover and I have seen gasket failure there that will cause oil in coolant. Your motor is a 3800.
