Only if engine got very hot, where the head gasket's were damage, the you will get water or coolant in the oil.

No, water in oil in overhead cam engines is caused by blown head gasket or cracked head. Sorry :-(

My 04 seabring is still overheating after replaceing the thermostat, and then wont start


If you have the 2.7L engine, you may have a bad water pump. The water pump is turned by the timing chain. When the water pump on those particular engines go out, tension on the chain goes away and retards the camshafts bad enough for it not wanting to start. Pull your oil dipstick out and see if you see signs of water in the oil. If there is, this is your problem. When the water pump goes out on those engines, it'll drain water straight into the front of the oil pan.

Waterpump went out and now there's water in the oil - what's wrong?


Water pumps are notorious for sudden failure without any warning. Often the first sign of trouble is a light on the dash board telling you your engines in running very hot. If you have covered a considerable distance you might have done further damage to the engine. we had an old vehicle were this happened. The engine had a system where the oil and water ran either side of a thin metal membrane about the engine. I am no expert, but I fear you have cracked that division between the water and oil

My car heats up changed thermostat no oil in water no water in oil. blows back into resevoir then heats up


Did you check the lid of the cooling system? Has it got the original lid on? If you put some 2 bars of pressure onto the cooling system while cold, would you be able to find a leakage? Did you check the waterpump? The could be most probably some water leakage ore traces of that unter the waterpump inbetween inner and outer bearing.

My 98 ford contour keeps overheating i just replaced the radiator and the water pump. And there is no water in the oil. The fans work but it still overheats . What else could be causing it to overheat?


I can't believe anyone would replace the waterpump without also replacing the thermostat. Once overheated, a thermostat is no good anymore. It must be replaced.

But that is not the only possibility. You could have a bad head gasket, without having oil in the water. Only a pressure check can tell. You could also have a collapsing lower hose, as water pump suction causes it to pinch off. You could also have an air bubble from not bleeding it properly when refilling. You could also have a loose waterpump belt. You could have put in the wrong waterpump, as the type for normal V-belts runs the opposite direction of the type for serpentine belts.
There are many more, but that is all I could immediately think of.

Ihave a leaking waterpump, and coolant mixing in my oil.


once the leak gets to this point nothing works, but it is worth a try, contact NAPA auto parts for a head gasket sealer, they have some that might stop or slow it down for awhile.

I pour coolant in from the radiator cap a almost instantly leaks


On most cars there is a weep hole that goes out when your water pump does. Chances are if your car was not making any terrible noises that it is just your waterpump.
Try cleaning the area then watching carefully to see where the fluid is coming out.But 9 times out of 10 its almost always the waterpump. If it was coming out of the oil pump then chances are that you will be able to see coolant on your oil dipstick and then thats a whole new set of problems.

91 toyota camry overheating problem


So far you did the right things in the right order. If you have a pressure cap (looks like a radiator cap to the rear side of the engine. Dealer $15) change the pressure cap also and then flush the radiator. A sure sign of blockage is when you open the radiator look around inside the top if you see brown or green kind of gunky stuff. Flush the radiator anyway.
If after the radiator is flushed and you still overheat, the next posibility is the head gasket. But don,t worry yet, follow these steps and observations. (this goes for 93 camry V6 also, I have one)

  1. change radiator cap and pressure cap where applicable
  2. Change the thermostat.
  3. Some cars may have a thermo switch which ramps up the fan(double fan designs). Change that if applicable.
  4. flush the radiator and engine block
  5. change waterpump AND headgasket.
The temperature guage can tell you what you need to know.
  1. If the guage starts to spike up after stopping, pausing in traffic or while in gear not moving but it is fine while driving along the highway, then you are having a blockage in the cooling system. FLUSH SYSTEM.
  2. if there is a bubbling sound in the engine when you turn it off, FLUSH SYSTEM
  3. If the car overheats at anytime, anywhere and it drinks coolant like a fish, then you my friend have a headgasket problem. Change waterpump and head together
