What makes a 04 envoy run hot and lose oil?


A hot running engine is usually caused by a cooling system problem. Make sure the coolant level is full and the thermostat.. rad fan.. radiator cap and water pump are all functioning correctly. Make sure there are no restrictions in front of the radiator to obstruct air flow and coolant circulates properly throughout the radiator. As for losing oil, check for the obvious..... Leaks. If no major leaks and you have a high mileage engine, suspect the oil to be burning within the engine. A constantly hot running engine can also cause the oil to break down quicker resulting in consumption, especially if oil changes are neglected

Is it a straight 6? Check water pump for signs of leakage. Will look like a dried stream of buildup. These engines have head problems an my be leaking in head gasket. Check oil if you allow it to go something major is going to happen . Those engines are simple an tough, but when heat problems arise find it quickly. You also may have a leaking hose but i doubt that since it is over heating . Water pump or head gasket are tops on list for straight 6.

1990 honda accord ex overheating fans not turning on, tested sensor conectors with jumper and fans come on.starts overheating at stoplights but temperature drops to normal while driving. have been told...


You will have to replace the fan sensor. If the fans are not working then the temperature will rise when stopped and cool down when running because of the air coming through he radiator.
A head gasket leak will show up by lose of water and bubbles in the radiator, with it topped up to the neck of the filler. Worst indication is water in the oil and out the exhaust.

Started white smoking and losing a little coolant. Not getting in oil. no power lose. no sign of leaking.


if you are losing coolant and and producing white smoke from the tailpipe you have the classic sign of a bown head gasket. usually this smoke is accompanied by a bitter sweet odor. most common causes are severe engine overheating or severe misfire(flashing check engine light). take the car in for a diagnosis.

My 1996 Suzuki Swift Cino is overheating. Replaced waterpump 3 months ago. Stopped overheating until 1 week ago. Replaced the thermostat yesterday and still overheating. Loosing all coolant, but no...


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 1992 subaru loyale four door car.It had water in the oil when i changed it.It does have an oil leak.It doesnt over heat and it doesnt smoke at all.Where could the leak be coming from?


May have a small head gasket leak or cracked head or block, that is usually the way water will get into your oil, unless it was poured in by mistake through the oil fill tube. If you are losing water in your radiator, there are major issues there.

Im losing coolant at a rapid pace and its overheating. i see no leaks from the coolant resivoiur and i want a diagosis b4 i take it it. any ideas..?????


Check radiator, hoses, water pump. Also check the oil to make sure that no water is mixing with the oil. But this sounds like a issues with either the radiator, hoses or pump

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.
