Small amount of milk in oil


To check whether the coolant is entering into the engine oil or not, do the following.
- Park the car on a level floor.
- Check engine oil level on the dip stick and mark it with nail polish. Let it dry. Confirm the oil level. Put the dip stick back.
- Apply about 10 psi external pressure to the coolant system, while keeping caps in place.
NOTE: It is advised to use the coolant system tester. In case the tester is not available, ask any technician to do it for you. Or you can use a bicycle pump with gauge installed on it to pressure the system up to 10 psi. The system should held the pressure up to 30 Seconds.
- If the pressure is maintained for 30 Seconds every thing is good at this time. Ensure that the air is not leaking through your external pump system with which you are testing the system.
If the pressure drops, there will be a leakage some where. Either external or internal. External leakage can easily be observed while carefully examining the hose pipes, clips and joints on the engine.
Internal leakage can be determined by checking the engine oil level again.
- Take out the dip stick and inspect the oil level. If the engine oil level increases it confirm the internal leakage.
- Internal coolant leakage could be due to:-
1. Cylinder head bolts loose or under torqued. (Re-Torque the bolts).
2. Burnt cylinder head gasket. (Always use original spares).
3. Cylinder and head surfaces warped. (Surface grind the cylinder head on surface grinding machine and replace the gasket).
4. Any corroded lid in the cylinder block or cylinder head assembly.
5. Oil cooler, if any.
If the test report of above mentioned procedure is found to be OK, start the engine, pull up dip stick a little, open breather tube from the tappet cover, keep it open and keep the engine start for as long as the water vapors coming out of these points disappear and the engine oil will become clear to its original color.
At times it happens that immediately after replacing the cylinder head gasket some coolant may flow into the engine unavoidably and keep contaminating the engine oil for quite some time.
Hope that works.

When i start my 2005 buick rainer the oil light stays on longer then usual. And yesterday after a 300 mile trip i noticed a skweeky sound under hood and opened and noticed that it was leaking oil somewhere...


Hello: Check the oil pressure sending unit for leaking. That could be the reason for the delay in the light going out and also the leakage. If oil has gotten on the serpentine belt replace it also. The sending unit will be near the oil filter assembly on the lower front of the engine.

2006 vw passat. screen says stop! warning low oil. engine off ? what does that mean? Also servive engine now! I just bought the car yesterday and it has no owners manual. I did notice what looked like...


First, check your engine oil level , while on level ground, add if it's low. (The oil viscosity should be labeled on the oil filler cap) Blue smoke is a sign of burning oil, not a good sign. White smoke is a sign of coolant mixing with your engine oil, a worse sign.
Your computer is telling you to check your oil, so do it, or get it done.
If your oil is low, top it off and keep checking it regularly to see if your engine is consuming it. If it is, I would recommend getting it looked at for either a leak, or low compression. (Worn out piston rings will cause oil consumption and poor performance.)

HAVE A OIL LEAK COMING FROM ABOVE THE OIL FILTER.


Has the oil filter just been replaced? Sometimes the old gasket sticks to the mounting area, causing leakage if the new filter is installed on top of it. It is also possible the gasket was for some reason missing on a new filter. Let me know if this is not the cause, I'll try to help further.

1985 Ford Crown Vic engine when hot outside last 2 years would take time to start as I waited to re-try until it did. Lately has to have a jump and starts right away. Shop replaced: battery, serpentine...


It sounds like you have the wrong thermostat installed in your car. You need to get the water to the block quicker then what it's doing now. Always check oil every time before driving. This is a must on older cars. Some Mechanics differ, but in the long run it will pay off. An oil spot beneith the car might be bolts that need to be tighten on the oil pan, of you may have a bad oil sending unit. Also ehck power steering pump fluid level and make sure there is not a leak there.
