Oil is in the resovior now it link out of the resovior

If I'm understanding you correctly, you're saying there is oil in your reservoir? Could be the head gasket starting to go bad. If you're saying it's leaking out of the reservoir, then you have a crack somewhere in the reservoir or the rubber line that connects to it.

98 expedition 5.4 Had mechanic diagnose leaky intake with smoke test. I replaced and replaced plugs and vacuumed line and Pcv also bypassed adapter for coolant temp sensor cause it broke and dealer wants...

coolant under the manifold is a hole ( corrosion)and if water is coming out then uncontrolled air can get in giving you the running problems. Have a compression test done to check for blown head gasket. Have a coolant pressure test done to find the leaks

Overheating coolant boiling out into reserve tank

you have a blown head gasket.. doesn't have to have coolant in the oil for a blown head gasket... if hoses are rock hard when running then you have exhaust leaking into the coolant via a blown head gasket...

My mazda mpv 2001 coolant leaking somewhere. Filled it Saturday full line and is at low level monday afternoon.Where is it going? Van not overheating

This could be a number of things so I would recommend starting with the easiest of them first and that would be to carefully examine the coolant reservoir to make sure that it is not leaking and then check the radiator hoses and water pump (located on the left side of the vehicles engine if you are facing the windshield with the hood up) while the engine is running at normal operating temperature. Most of the time if there is a leak then you will be able to see it. If you are unable to spot a leak outside the vehicle, then you will want to check the passenger side floor board to see if it is damp, as the heater core is located on that side. If that is good then your vehicle may be consuming the coolant and burning it. This is a sign that you have either a bad head or a blown head gasket. If the head gasket is blown and the engine is consuming the coolant, then it should be smoking when it is running and you will be able to smell the antifreeze burning. I hope that you have found this information useful as that is my goal. Good luck and if you have any more questions, feel free to ask me.

How to change a blown head gasket

Changing a head gasket is a major engine repair. Unless you have a good set of tools including a torque wrench and a good general knowledge of how things work, it can be a tough job. If you still want to try, I would highly recommend a repair manual for your vehicle such as a Haynes manual that covers 1997 Toyota trucks. It will have pictures of most of the parts as well as the specifications for tightening all the bolts when you are ready to put it all back together. Basically replacing a head gasket requires that you do the following: Drain the coolant, drain the oil. Remove fuel lines to and from the engine, remove the electrical and vacuum lines that lead to and from the intake manifold,remove the alternator, air pump, ac compressor, tie it back, don't disconnect the refrigerent lines, remove the valve cover remove the intake manifold, remove the front engine cover which will expose the timing belt. Remove the timing belt, remove the cam shaft. You should now see the head bolts. Remove the head bolts. Carefully tap on the head until you can loosen it from the engine block. You may have to drive a wedge between the head and the engine block to force it to loosen up. This is a delicate operation, because if you damage the head during removal, it won't seal with the new gasket. You will need a top rebuild gasket set for your engine. Somewhere around $150.00. Every gasket surface needs to be cleaned to the bare metal without scratching the surface. Any old gasket material left on the parts will cause leaks. Once you get the head off, spend another 150.00 or so to get it boiled out by a head shop in your area. They will also test it for leaks and cracks. If the head is cracked, it will have to be replaced. If you don't get it checked for cracks, this whole exercise will be wasted if it turns out to be a cracked head instead of a blown head gasket. Anyway, reverse everything, tighten it by the book to specified torque put in new oil and antifreeze and you are set to go. I replaced my first head gasket when I was about 15 years old. It took me a couple of weeks and I broke about 6 or 7 bolts off on things like the intake manifold, front cover etc. I learned a lot from that old '58 ford. Good luck, and get that Haynes manual.

I have a 1984 delta 88. It had a blown intake gasket and in removing the intake the vacuum lines were brittle and broken. Back together the lines are crossed and need a diagram to shoe the correct design

Try the website and register your car there. It's free and will give you access to an online repair manual for the car. The vacuum diagrams for your car can be found there. ( I checked) Hope this helped and best wishes.
