Blown head gasket or cracked head. Will eventually cause coolant to foam up and stop circulating. Must pull head and look for gasket leak. If gasket OK, have head tested for leak between oil and coolant passages. I'm assuming you have overhead cam, else there is no high pressure oil in the head.

SOURCE: going through lots of coolant

If your car is eating Oil and Coolant, you need to change your head gasket. To buy a head gasket Set costs about 75 bucks. To hire someone to replace them: about 800 bucks. Your car aint eating all that up. You have a leak somewhere.

What do you think about my suzuki multicab with lots of white smoke and sometimes the smell a burning of clutch?


White smoke usually means burning coolant in combustion chamber and lots of it is not good. Check for oil in radiator coolant reservoir. If oil is present your engine is bad.

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 in coolant . a lot


Oil in the coolant can be caused by several different things one of which could be a cracked block. It might also just be a bad head gasket.

Ok so i do have oil and coolant is it hard it impossible to fix


Hi Jose:
I'd be looking for a bad head gasket. If the coolant is getting into the engine oil, the oil level will get higher, and the oil will be milky coloured from the coolant. Have you done a compression test? Is there a lot, and I mean A LOT of water vapour coming out of the exhaust? Head gaskets can fail in different places and give different symptoms, but the bottom line is that the engine will need to be dismantled and the head gasket replaced. If the engine has overheated during this problem, the head may be warped. Your engine is not happy.

Oil pressure warning lamp flickers when in drive at a stop at idle


2.7 engine I ASSUME??????. A larger inlet for the oil pump is needed. Call the dealer parts dept. about it. This engine had lots of oil sludging and timing chain problems. Fix them before the chain breaks, or its BIG BUCKS to fix. I would recoomend having your mechanic do the oil pump and check the timing chain/ water pump components.

Coolant/temp Warning light


Yes, fill your reservoir and see if you have a leak there....if it is something worse, drain some oil from the oil pan and see if you have coolant or a milky look to the oil. Another thing to is your water pump may have bit the big one.

Oil in coolant and engine will turn over and will not start...2005 Ford F450 Super Duty 6.0 Diesel


oil in the coolant generally indicates a blown head gasket. If the head gasket is blown, oil and coolant could be getting into the cylinders. You should have a mechanic check it out. I don't know a whole lot about dianosinng diesels. If you can get the glow plugs out, turn it over and see it any water or oil blows out of the holes.
