Oil in water

Is it a foamy substance? If so it is not oil it is the new coolant that is called extended life, it breaks down and turns to what appears to be an oily brown sludge. Have the system flushed thoroughly and add the new coolant that doesn't do this.

Engine oil leaking into coolant system on a 1997 mercedes benz c280

Have a compression test done on the engine to eliminate gasket problems . Check that the oil is engine oil and not transmission oil from a broken oil cooler in the radiator.. If you are sure that it is engine oil check that you have an engine oil cooler on the engine in which case it will be a gasket or corrosion in that unit.

If transmission oil cooler is leaking, engine coolant may enter cooler, or transmission oil may enter engine cooling system. Both engine cooling system and transmission oil circuit should be drained, flushed, and inspected.

My car is a volkswagen passat diesel .there is oil in the coolant i was first told the head gasket had blowen. i have also been told it could be the oil cooler. the car is not over heating in fact the...

There is a very easy way to check the oil cooler for leaks.

Do this with the engine cool and be prepared to catch some coolant in a pan.

Remove the 2 coolant hoses from the oil cooler and attach them together using a 5/8 inch straight heater hose connector. You are bypassing the oil cooler temporarily. Wipe the oil cooler clean so you can clearly see any leaks develop.

Now run the engine and watch the oil cooler pipes (the ones you just removed the hoses from) carefully. If you begin to see oil seeping from the cooler pipes you've found your problem.

This might take a while to see so be patient and let the car run for at least 15 mins or more.

Don't worry about the cooler being disconnected while the car is running, but I do recommend reconnecting the cooler if you have to drive it even if you find it to be leaking.

If it is found to be leaking, you will need to replace the part and have your coolant flushed out properly to remove as much of the oil as possible from the system. Also change the engine oil at the same time, it is possible that coolant has gotten into the oil although it may not be obvious.

Good luck.

My 2000 beetle 2.0 has constant engine oil in the reservoir.

Most probably you have bad head gasket. That is the main reason for oil getting to coolant.
Check you exhaust for color. White color can be also idiction that coolant going to combustion chamber.
Hope that was helpfull
Good Luck
