First look under the engine itself for oil drain Boll take it off make sure you have a Oil Pan...Flush All the Oil Change your Oil Filter
For new Oil Filter refer to Canadian Tire or any Garage 10W40 But I will Refer That to a Nissan Garage To Ask for the right Motor Oil
For your Head Gasket Check For Missing Rubber in Safety Cap
Check For Battery Connection and Battery it self if it good then follow our connection and main Fuse Box for burning fuse or bad relay connection...

I have a 93 stealth keeps running hot my mac. Said it was waterpump so had him change it I changed redaitor . And thrumosat. All hoses I do have fans wire full blast. Is that bad just didn't want it to...


Good idea on the fans. Keep it that way till you fix the problem. Won't hurt anything, just may shorten fan life-but a new fan is much less expensive than a new engine.
Watch the temp gauge on your dash. The thermostat should open as it warms up, before the gauge gets up to half-way. You can tell when the thermostat starts to open-the upper radiator hose will start feeling hot, or at least start warming up. You will get a rough idea if the thermostat is working properly. By the time engine is at normal operating temperature, the thermostat should be fully open and the hose will feel quite warm. If the hose is still cool when engine is at operating temp., the thermostat may be opening too late, as in wrong thermostat. Not very likely, but always possible.
How did the shop check the head gaskets? Did they do a compression test? With new pump, new radiator, new hoses...should be good, but still runs hot? Any bubbling in your overflow tank? You may want to consider having a block test done, where they check for exhaust gases in the coolant. That would be a head gasket leak causing hot running condition. Maybe the shop checked the gaskets this way, or maybe they missed something? About the only other thing I could think of would be a coolant circulation problem inside the engine, a restriction or something, that an engine flush might clear up. A shop could do a reverse flush of the engine if there is a circulation problem.
Good luck, and keep us posted on your progress. Does your mechanic have any other suggestions?

To me it sound like you have oil getting into your radiator fluid either from engine or transmission lines..As for the overflow problem make sure the fan is coming on when it gets hot..It could be water pump or radiator or thermostat

Oil keeps getting in to the water


if thats the case you should have water in the oil also, that means you have a blown head gasket

Oil in overflow of radiator.


If you have coolant mixed in you oil you have blown a head gasket at the very least. You will have to pull the heads and replace the gasket.

Oil leaking into coolant -- not head gasket


That vehicle has the transmission cooler built into the radiator. You may not be leaking oil into the coolant, but transmission fluid, they both make the same mess. Replacing the radiator will probably fix your problem. Let me know if this helped.

you could have a broken cylinder head gasket...you are loosing water thru the engine pistons that is why you have smoke on tail pipe when engine is running.

our simple test if you have a blown gasket is to fill the radiator up to the rim and then be carefull, do not stay in front of the radiator then ask someone to start your engine and watch the water in the radiator, if the water rushes outside the mouth of the radiator, then you have a blown gasket.

if not, then put the gasket cover and run the engine for 20 mins and watch the temp gauge, it should not over heat.

tnx for using fixya,

OIL IN ANTIFREEZE


Everyone automatically assumes that oil and water mixing means a blown head gasket or cracked engine block. Of course common sense is usually not that common. Oil in coolant is a different problem than coolant in oil. The former is a low pressure leak, and could indicate only an intake manifold gasket. It could also be an early or small head gasket leak. Coolant in oil is usually a cracked block or torn head gasket, and has concomitant symptoms of white exhaust smoke and milky oil on dipstick. If you replace the head gasket and the problem persists, an intake gasket could have fixed the problem.
