Oil is getting n my radiator it is a cream color & thick like a gravy, my truck hasnt been running hot until a few weeks ago due 2 it getting so thick and wont rotate, everyone says its a cracked


Sounds like you either have a cracked cylinder head, or more likely, a blown head gasket. Get the gasket changed, and have the head inspected and tested while it's off.

My 2002 buick century is loosing coolant fast. When car isn't running around 60-70 mph is seems to heat up more than normal and no heat or ac will occur. Should I replace the thermostat? I noticed the fan...


it sounds like one of several problems radiator needs flushed , water pump is bad or going, thermostat is bad, pin hole in one of the hoses, cracked head, hole in radiator, hole in heater core.if core is leaking you will notice water on the floor inside the car on pasenger side. if radiator has hole when you fill radiator with coolant it will leak froom fins sometimes only when hot. thermostat bad your car will read hot and or cold always. if stuck open cold, if stuck closed hot, after about 15 20 mins of running engine will cause radiator to boil over to over flow tank.never open radiator cap when engine is hot :) burn hazard.if pump is bad or going will notice gauge reads hot intermittent or always. will boil in to overflow tank. if head is cracked will notice water comming from side of engine block or in oil when you change oil. if radiator needs to be flushed will notice scale or gunk on radiator cap
(if you think you need help or do not have tools to perform please take to a machanic)

1999 Honda crv running hot


hi i don't know what mechanic you went to but blown head gasket will cause the engine not to idle/run right. usually when you replace the thermostate you have to then run the car obviously with water in the radiator and crack the little screw where the thermostate is located. this will allow the car to release any trapped air in the lines and you may need to keep topping up the radiator. im not a mechanic but i know alot about cars. i came across this problem in my holden ute. it was running hot and that was why. too much trapped air. easiest way is too crack that screw and remove it. run the car while keeping an eye on the radiator water level you will see if there is air in there it won't squirt water out continuously once it does run continously turn the car off put the screw back in warning it will be quite hot retop te radiatior if need and you should be good too go. it solved the same problem i had. have fun cheers

Overheating radiator


I'd make sure you have fluid in your radiator. Does you AC blow cold? If it doesn't there is a chance you are low or out of fluid. This would lead to a crack in the radiator. Is it a crank shaft driven fan of electric?
