OK, anytime oil gets into the cooling system or vice versa, there's a strong possibility that there is a leak at the head gasket.

Could have to do with overspeeding the engine.

The cooling system can get up to 14 to 16 psi, enough to burst into the oil lines which run next to the cooling lines in the head and block.

If it's spilling on the front driver's side of the car, then you have some serious problems with this engine.

06 pt cruiser turbo replaced radiator test drove and coolant was leaking found black wire to fan not connected radiator won't fill after 8oz it leaks out


So you drove the vehicle with the power to the fan and it overheated and was discharging coolant?

After you have drained coolant and then refilled, you have to 'burp' the system to remove airlocks. There are videos if you Google 'burping vehicle radiator'. Basically you run the vehicle from cold with the radiator cap off and add coolant as the level drops. When the thermostat opens the level will rise and fall. There is a gadget that you can fix to the top of the radiator cap that you fill and the level is maintained. You can help the process by squeezing the lower and upper radiator hoses. The system must be full of coolant with no air. Then you turn the engine off, top up one last time, replace the cap and then top up the reservoir.

My 2005 PT cruiser turbo has just started heavy white smoke when idling. Does not happen all the time and appears to run rough when it does


Hi Barbra:
1) I'd be suspicious of a bad head gasket with a possible leak between a cylinder and the water jacket.
If fumes smell like coolant that would be a confirming hint.
Check the oil (dipstick) and see if it has a milky colour or if there is any water visible. If the head gasket problem is only as in 1) above, it should be just oil.
- Temporary fix attempt????? - add aluminum sealant to coolant.
- Permanaent fix (expensive) - Off to the repair shop for a new head gasket.
Hope this helps.

Have 2005 pt crusier 2.4 turbo


Its oil. Oil is leaking past the valve seals, letting oil seep into the combustion chambers when sitting. This is a pretty small leak that shows its ugly head when starting it up after it sits a bit. Keep driving it, not a major problem. Just keep an eye on your oil level.

05 pt cruiser turbo.oil is getting into intake manifold.smoke is coming out of exhaust.installed new turbo.still doing the same thing


It is getting into your exhaust manifold-the return line is either restricted or blocked, or the oil seal inside the turbo housing is either leaking or blown, usually due to excessive crankcase pressure.Try disconnecting the oil feed and return lines first, clean them out, and try it again-if it is still there, the turbo will have to come out and it will have to be gone over for blown seals.

Loud humming noise coming from 03. Pt cruiser with turbo. You can only hear the sound when excelerating. When hooked up to the computer at the parts store it says something about the emissions. Any...


It appears that the bearing and seal on the turbine shaft of the Turbo have failed causing the noise of a worn bearing and oil leaking past the seal into the exhaust system. Continuing to drive it will eventually remove all oil from engine if not topped up. The Turbo needs repairing urgently before any more damage occurs.
Turbos get very hot during brisk driving and need to be allowed to cool down before turning off the engine to prolong bearing and seal life. It is recommended to allow engine to idle for at least three minutes before switching off to allow the circulating oil to bring turbo down to a reasonable temperature.
