Hi, ok this is unusual. I guess the problem lies with oil entering into the combustion chambers, this can be caused due to improper cylinder head gasket used, gasket not sealing, oil level too high ... the only way to oil being pushed through the exhaust is oil entering the cylinders and being pushed through the exhaused valves on exhaust strokes.

Oil light keeps comeing on ???


Remove the electric sender and install mechanical oil gauge to check that you have proper oil pressure. Bet ya the main bearings are not fitted correctly or the engine wasn't cleaned during overhaul and now bearings are trashed.

Car ran hot wont start unless pushed started


how long did you run it hot, chances are if you run it hot too long more than 10 or 20 minutes you are going to end up with a blown head gasket. Most cars usually restart after cooling off for 30 minute to an hour or by lett it cool off and topping it off with more antifreeze or even plain water if you continue to drive it without water for any length of time you are going to have a major head job ahead of you. If you run it to the point where you warp the head it will cost major $$ the way you tell this is check the radiator when it is cool and see if it looks like oil is mixed in with the coolant (usually looks like chocolate pudding ) or check the oil fill if there is thick chocolate mud like film on the filler cap chances are you have a blown head gasket and a warped head. time for an overhaul, can cause more internal problems as well water mixed with oil causes many mechanical problems. never ever run a car hot for any length of time pull over and sit until cool and top off with water if nothing else.. or have it towed.. not worth the major cost to repair when you blow a head gasket or warp a head. past experience 20+ yrs and working on automobile repairs.

I have oil in the coolant of my 1999 VW Passat 1800 sport, engine code APT. Although on the face of things it looks to be a head gasket failure, I have been told that it may well be an oil cooler issue....


The oil cooler is almost definatly the problem

The reason for this is.

Your oil pressure is normaly anywhere between 2 and 5 Bar depending on engine temp and oil type, where your water pressure is never more than 1.2 bar. Thus the oil pushes into the cooling system due to the fact that it is of higher pressure.

In the event of a head gasket leaking it will push water into the oil not the other way round causing the oil to eventually go white.

These cars are known to have problems with their oil coolers from time to time.

My sienna smokes from the exhaust. what is the likely problem and remedy?


If the smoke is white it would indicate water/coolant getting into the combustion chambers from the cooling system. (Usually caused by allowing engine to become excessively overheated when cooling system has run dry). If this leak is bad enough you may also see a water and oil emulsion on the oil dipstick due to water runing into sump.
If the smoke is blue/grey it would indicate eccessive oil being burnt in the cylinders due to worn, broken or stuck piston rings. This problem shows up as having to constantly top up oil level every day or two. If the smoke only happens when engine is first started then it means worn valve guides or valve stem seals.
The first problem (white smoke) will requre the removal of the engine head to replace gasket and have head face machined,
The second problrm (blue/grey smoke) will require further diagnosis by a mechanic to locate the true cause and may mean a total engine overhaul.

Water is mixed with oil.


Fix this ASAP, Coolant in oil will ruin bearings. Have a shop check it ASAP. I would check the intake manifold gaskets first.
