If the oil was milky in appearance then you can suspect a blown head gasket. Coolant is mixing with the oil causing the oil level to rise. Has the coolant level gone down? Check your spark plugs. The cylinder with the leaking head gasket will have a cleaner spark plug. If the leak is bad enough you can see water squirting out of the spark plug hole when you crank the engine with the starter. You will also see steam coming out of the exhaust pipe when the engine is running.

I have a 97 Ford Taurus I put Marvel oil in it you have been driving for 30 minutes now it runs real real bad lost power overheating and smoking


Umm...

Overheating is either a sign of a thermostat/radiator fault, a coolant leak or a leaking cylinder head gasket.

Smoking is either due to overfilling with oil, worn valve seals or worn piston rings/worn engine.

If the trouble started when you topped up with oil, drain the oil system and try a different oil.

Car won't start


old post , no year car, 1989 to 2002
there are 3 engines, 2 up to 1998. all made by toyota
overheating is it,
forget all else. FIND reason for overheating, coolant lost top list.
if loosing coolant that is #1 above all else. find cause.
but
overheating KILLS all ENgines. if not cured fast.
warps heads
is it pinging? that too kills engines.
your engine should never overheat unless it has cooling problems or.

unless the head is warped now, it will overheat, due to coolant loss
is it loosing coolant every hour or day?
CRANKING ALL ENGINES THAT DONT START DRAINS ALL BATTERIES, IT'S NOT a SYMPTOM IT'S NORMAL FOR NOSTARTS. (starter sucks 100 amps from battery every try)


id do a compression test first.
look for coolant in these spots
1: pavement below car.
2: passenger foot wells. (heat core leaks)
3: low radiator at neck cold show no coolant seen there.
4: in the a/t transmission, turns AFT to chocolate milk.
5: water in the engine oil pan, and or the reverse.
oil in the radiator, or side tank.
do all you can to not overheat any engine, and keep the repair bill like 1/3 or less. of BOOM

Engine is overheating and I believe I can taste antifreeze in the engine oil we drained. We only drained a small amount.


One way to test for sure if there is antifreeze in your oil (and avoiding ingesting poisonous ethylene gylcol) is by placing a drop of oil on a hot exhaust manifold. If it boils, there is a antifreeze leak. Similarly, if you can light the oil on fire with a hand lighter, there is a gas leak as well. If you find antifreeze, you can try using a florescent dye to track the leak to its source.

My 04 seabring is still overheating after replaceing the thermostat, and then wont start


If you have the 2.7L engine, you may have a bad water pump. The water pump is turned by the timing chain. When the water pump on those particular engines go out, tension on the chain goes away and retards the camshafts bad enough for it not wanting to start. Pull your oil dipstick out and see if you see signs of water in the oil. If there is, this is your problem. When the water pump goes out on those engines, it'll drain water straight into the front of the oil pan.

Overheating engine, no leakage, some white smoke when cold,


1 st drain the oil if excessive for it will just aggitate in the oil pan and it will not pump through the oil pump resulting in internal engine damage. The belt should be replaced every two years on any Northstar motor. A tune up is also recomended as well with high milage

Oil drain out and now have no power


it is likely that when the oil drained with the motor running all moving parts within the engine started to wear rapidily this could have caused pistons or worse to seize. you will prob need a rebuild or new engine

Overheating, water in oil


You have a bad head gasket. You will not know how bad the damage is until the engine is disassembled. Chances are, a head has warped though, and will need to be machined.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
