Since you used a question mark after "engine oil", I assume that you're not too sure where the coolant is going. While it's certainly possible for the coolant to end up in your oil, you should be able to see byproducts of combustion in your coolant (a very dirty coolant) if the head gasket is leaking. It could also force coolant out of your overflow as you drive, but not while you are sitting idle, making it hard to actually see if this happening to your coolant. Check your coolant for signs of this "blow-by". If your engine is losing power, you might want to do a cylinder balance check.

1996 Saturn sl2 coolant problem I can't figure out how I'm losing coolant no leak engine runs hot but when I shut car off and let cool coolant gone just about thermostat replaced


Blown head gasket and/or cracked head, cracked or leaking intake manifold. Since the car has run hot, the headgasket is probably damaged either way. On a 4 cylinder engine you are looking at $900 to 1200 range...v6 add another $3 to 400. Possibly more depending on what caused the failure in the first place.

I HAVE ANITFREEZE LEAKS FROM MY 2000 CHEVY S10 BLAZER. IT'S HARD TO TELL BUT THE LEAK SEEMS TO BE COMING FROM UNDER THE MOTOR RATHER THAN FROM THE RADIATOR OR ANY HOSE I CAN SEE.


a common V6 failure is the intake manifold gasket. coolant will usually leak behind the water pump on the drivers side, however it can leak at other locations on the intake manifold gasket.

coolant leaks from other areas include the heater core, hoses, expansion plugs, trans cooler, and coolant overflow tank.

The head gasket is leaking externally that is why there is no coolant in the oil and no smoking from the exhaust.This is also why it is running good.You will have to replace the head gasket eventually or it will start leaking internally.If you do one you should do them both.It is easier to do both now then to tear it apart again later.Good luck.

My 2002 Chevy Malibu is overheating. I found that


If your car is equipped with a 3.1 or a 3.4 litre V6 and you have preformed all of the above listed work then I would have to say its the intake manifold gaskets. They commonly blow on these motors. Just a design flaw, nothing but replacing them when they leak can fix this. Also run a coolant pressure test on the system to check for minor things like a leak that you cant see from visual inspection. Hope this helps.

My 1998 Chevy 1500 with vortec 4.3 v6 leaks coolant on the drivers side of the engine near the rear of the motor. It leaks when shut of and cool, say when parked at night.


You need to put pressure on the coolant system and look for the leak. If you are lucky you can find the coolant leak by following the coolant trail. It could be a head gasket, intake gasket, or coolant sensor near where you say, but take a good look to try to round it down.

Intake? coolant leak


You can start by pressure testing it. Do you see it coming out by the head? Those are not too bad to fix, leaking into the cylinders or oil chanels could cause more problems. With it just leaking out you may be able to get it fixed by replacing the gasket alone.
Use a straight edge to check if the head is not warped while you have it off.
I hope this is what you are looking for.
