You probably have a bad cylinder head, or gasket. If yours is a diesel, you possibly could have a bad cylinder liner. You need to get some tests done.
A coolant pressure test to see if your coolant system is holding pressure. (I'm guessing it won't)
A leak down test will test cylinder condition and valves.
A compression test, to see if just one cylinder may be the issue.
Don't drive it untill you get it looked at.

I replace the oil pump and the oil sensor, and the oil light keeps beeping and the car is over heating, and the fan is not running


Check to see if your thermostat needs replacing. Sounds like a rad over heating problem.... oil pump problem would seize your engine...open rad cap on a cold engine, start her up and look down into rad, takes a few min but if it doesn't circulate after 4 min then your water pump or thermostat needs replacing

Jaguar x 2.0 Diesel Problem no power alot of black smoke coming out as you drive , now i have oil on rad and all over battery


run fault codes and look for EGR valve and pcv valve faults. Black smoke is unburnt diesel so it may be the injectors need attention. If it is a turbo then check the oil lines to the turbo and check turbo operation as it may not be producing air pressure for the engine.

Hi I havs a 95 HZJ75 landcruiser with a 1 HZ motor . the engine started overheating I have replaced water pump ,radiator thermostate now i have oil in the radiator and engine overheats within 10 min...


i think you may have overheated this unit again and possibly have crack or cracks in the head around the precomb to exhaust valve area, and a few thou bend in head too. Question :- Do you have an after market turbo on this unit?

Overfilled engine oil on a 2003 porsche 911 turbo.now smoke comes out of exhaust--HEAVY Smoke.I drained engine oil again(along with the turbo)put in 9.25 qts of oil,still having heavy smoke.


The oil was overfilled this could cause a large amount of oil to enter the exaust and possibly the intake depending on crank case ventilation conditions. If you are positive engine oil levels are adjusted perfectly(warm engine check level running for dry sump oil level ect.). Time is needed to burn off oil residue in exhaust system and intake. Warm up engine low rpm no load, drive vehicle slow with little boost over 5 mins slowly raise rpms for another 5 mins keep driving smoke will burn off while making other drivers mad. sorry just smile and wave.
The engine oil on this vehicle should only be changed by an experinced tech.

Oil leak/large amounts of mulicolored smoke coming from exhaust


Around the rad eh, sounds like it could be the filter is not tightened enough, as for the smoke, im guessing that the oddly colorered smoke comes out of the tailpipe, it most likely is that the rings around the pistons are bad. That's what's happen many times before with cars, the ring(s) around the pisons go (expand or break) and thus causing oddly multicolored smoke to come out. Could also be the coolant is leaking into the chamber and mixing with the gasoline (which is not good at all).

Thick white smoke coming from exhaust


White smoke usually associated with water or moisture. it doesn't take too much water to produce white smoke. check

1. cloudy oil under oil cap
2. leak through gasket from cooling jacket to combustion chamber

White smoke from exhaust


White smoke from exhaust = water into the cylinders, when this happens it usually means head gasket gone or starting to go.
Check the water level, and take the car to the garage for a check up , if it is the head gasket, as I think, you risk to blow the engine at any time.
