Blown head gasket is the most likely ... do not ignore this ... have your mechanic look at it as soon as possible ... tomorrow is not too soon. This only gets worse and more expensive with every mile you drive.

This vehicle most likely has a 22r engine and the timing chain cuts a hole in the timing cover behind water inlet and you get anti-freeze in oil

Why do i have oil in my antifreeze


Transmission cooler inside the plastic parts of the radiator may be leaking and causing the oil to mix with the coolant. GM also has a problem with their lower intake gaskets leaking, which would allow the oil and coolant to mix. Last possibility is the head gasket is leaking and mixing the oil into the coolant side but not the other way. Check your transmission fluid for mixing evidence. Another thing to do is pressure test your cooling system (Radiator, hoses ect) to see if there is a leak. Another test to try out is compression.

Water and oil mixes together


Check oil by draining. Trans tank on radiator bottom may be oily slick you see if oil pan drained clean. Then trans is probably contaminated with antifreeze and that's what is mixing.

Crack in head passages could link oil and water, if you verify antifreeze and oil mixed in oil pan.

Going through alot of oil and antifreeze.... have oil where my spark plug is


The engine can burn alot of coolant before you see any smoke.
And having a cooling leak in the engine could cause it to run hot at times.
If you are adding coolant every week and don't see any leaks, the engine has to be burning it. Most of the time it is a blown head gasket and cracked head or block.

How do I locate a leak that lets antifreeze and oil mix inside the oil pan?


Most likely a head gasket. The coolant is forced into the oil chambers and mixes. This too leaks into the exhaust gases and burns off as you describe. You usually get oil in the coolant reservoir. This can be checked with a test strip available at automotive supply store. It measures the acidity in the coolant.

My van is leaking antifreeze for the botton of the car isee it dripping off the transmission pan it is over heating and i loosing a lot of antifreeze


you may have blown a manifold gasket. check oil and see if it is milky looking. Does oil pressure light come on? If so the gasket is blown. I had a leak once and it was ths gasket, but none was leaking into oil, just out onto the engine near the intake manifold. You may also have a corroded freeze plug. If you live up north and get a lot of snow and road salt, this could really be the issue. They are not easy to change on front wheel drive engines. Sorry. Have a great 4th of July.

Some kind of oil in coolant on a 94 Celica St


They had the head gasket replaced, when oil gets into the anti freeze its almost impossible to get it all out but a little oil won't hurt it. Its just ugly. To be sure the engine is fine, Do a compression test, the next is pressure test(see if there is a coolant leak and if so where is it going), and pull the oil drain plug for a second. If antifreeze is in the oil, it will settle at the bottom of the pan. Also sludge on the dip stick could be a sign of an issue.

Leaking antifreeze from oil pan bolts


Its almost impossible to leak antifreeze from oil pan bolts. However if you have a bad head-gasket antifreeze can get into the oil and yeah with that back pressure in the oil pan it can leak. I would look at the water pump first, it is possible that the pump or the seal on the pump is leaking and it is running down the front of the engine and it looks like its coming from the oil pan. Check this vehicle care fully and make sure that it is coming from the oil pan. If it is really coming from the oil pan you would nee more than a gasket you would need a complete head job. Check and let me know, the status. Good Luck
