Hi,
This doesn't sound good. I would change the oil and get a report of what drained out. If it's milky sludge too, you have water getting into the oil.
Did the engine run hot? A blown head gasket could cause this oil in water issue. If that's the case, you may be in for an inspection of the engine to see what degree of damage if any... this is major. Don't let it go unattended.
Man, I hope I'm wrong. Good luck!

My 96 jeep grand cherokee laredo over flow tank won't hold any water. The radiator was staying pretty full until now. It's leaking water can't find where it be?


Pull the dip stick for the oil , its probably over full ! The reason is that you have a bad head gasket ! So water / coolant are mixed with the oil !

Why is the coolant overflowing when the temp guage gets half way?


well the tank must never be full, when engine is cold
was it? (read operators guide to see methods)
water expands hot, and the tank captures this expansion
that is normal.
what does "until its all gone", mean, what is IT?
there are lots of tests.
the first one, is,
IS the engine overheating,?
try a new rad cap, they are dirt cheap.
and, is the oil or carbon in the RAD neck, cap off , cold engine>?
is there water in the engine oil, milky dip stick end?
same with A/T trans? milk, or pink/red ATF.
is there steam going out the tip of the exhaust pipe on a fully hot engine>? yes/no?
is air and water exploding in to the side expansion tank.?

cold engine
remove rad cap'
fill rad with 50% AF.
new cap back on.
put 50% AF 1/2 way up in to expansion tank(its marked clearly)
start engine , does it overflow now>?

What does it mean if there is oil in my coolant reservoir


oil too low!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! have some change your oil & filter immediately !!! drain radiator & coolant reservoir , refill w/ fresh 50/50 coolant , white smoke is not exactly a good thing ! it could mean coolant is mixing w/ oil , because of a possible leak from a bad gasket either from intake manifold or head gasket !!! water pump would not cause this ! I would bet on a gasket leak given the age of the car . 2000 ! 13 years old, how was it maintained, intake gaskets are cheaply made, head gaskets are made well ! so, my bet, goes to the intake manifold gasket !!!!!!good luck kristle !

2000 Buick Century - water pump replace


The water pump is not the problem if the recovery tank is full and no coolant is being sprayed onto the underside of the hood. the problem is a defective low coolant sensor which is very common in this car model and year. The sensor is in the radiator side tank and easy to replace as well as cheap, personally i disconnected mine.

Ya it ran and then die and i pulled the dip stick it was milky,drain the oil its full of coolant.i think it just blow the intake gaskets? plugs are clean no coolant in the plugs area?


Sounds like your correct. Typical sign of a blown head gasket is coolant in the oil. Try using a compression tester on each cyclindar and see if one (or more) have less compression that others.

2000 vw jetta 2.0 checked oil no oil showed on dip stick. saw that oil leaked into coolant system. replaced head gasket w/ new head bolts. flushed system, drained oil, new filter. after all done no oil...


Most likely place for oil into coolant is oil cooler, the aluminum box that mounts between the oil filter and a flange that comes off the block.

Is a blown head gasket the only reason my oil could be milky


Hello and yes. Your coolant is mixing with the oil causin the milky color. Keep a eye on your coolant level its going to drop due to bad gasket. Hope this is helpful

Audi A4 2.5 V6 TDI - Creamy grey coolant in expansion tank


Sounds like blown head gasket (or worse) still to me.
Remove oil filler cap and look for grey oil.
Never use water these days but special coolant. Water makes vapour spots and cause block cracks, worse then blown gaskets!!!
vapour does not cool very well.
Look like you have cracks already.
Take a compression test if possible. But might not show op at that temperature.
The gauge indication troubles me.

Gas smell in oil


The white strip of fluid on the oil is a slight amount of coolant getting into the oil . The water could be from condensation on the dip stick. I would drain the oil and just put regular recommended oil in it with a new filter. I would pull the spark plugs and check for any coolant or oil residue on them.Then drive the vehicle a little and check the performance. If there is unusual noise from the engine then or blue smoke from the tailpipe the engine has internal damage.

Assuming the engine performance stays the same. There could be a fuel injector sticking intermitantly.
