Check all of your connection son your hoses to make sure that they are not leaking, if that checks out ok, then i would , pull the spark plugs out, 1 at a time, and give the car a compression test to see if any of the cylinders have a low reading, if so , it could very possible be a blown head gasket, also the intake manifold gasket sometimes leak and allows tthe anti freeze to escape into the oil, or into the exhaust port , and will be burned out, therefore creating a white smoke coming from the tail pipe, also when you have the plugs out , look at them to see if they have any anti freeze on them , if so, then this is definitely telling you that a head gasket is leaking or blown.

Oil Gauge Marking Way Past 80

Check your dipstick for antifreeze in the oil. You mad need to replace the oil pressure sensor/sending unit. If there's no antifreeze in engine oil, replace sending unit. Should be a round silver sending unit at the left rear place on the intake with a plastic black wiring connector with 2-3 wires going into it.

I have now notice that my dual fans are not working whats wrong with my fans and did I glow a gasket?

First you have to put a radiator cap on it, top it up first and that will stop your smell of antifreeze. Then you need an oil change and watch them do it, so you know your dirty oil is out and new oil is in. Change the filter as well. Some scammer garages will charge you an not do it!

Now drive for a week and check the oil to see if it is black or golden? Check the coolant level to see if you have lost any? Then check under the oil filler cap to see it is it white and creamy, that is the test for a blown gasket and water in the oil.

Going through alot of oil and antifreeze.... have oil where my spark plug is

The engine can burn alot of coolant before you see any smoke.
And having a cooling leak in the engine could cause it to run hot at times.
If you are adding coolant every week and don't see any leaks, the engine has to be burning it. Most of the time it is a blown head gasket and cracked head or block.

1999 chevy cavalier oils like milk in coffee, antifreeze leaked bad last winter, summer only drove 4-6 miles a week checked every time I went to store, used 1/3-1/2 gallon antifreeze, now getting cold out...

you're getting water in to your oil that's why its milky. could be a bad head gasket ,cracked head, or a cracked block, usually one of the last 2. better get it to a mechanic, if its the block it would probably be cheaper to replace the engine, it takes less time and most places charge 75-100 dollars an hour

Your head gasket is bad,thus the smell of antifreeze in exhaust,,,,,,,check your oil,,you might have what looks like milky color mixed with oil,,,,that would be water there too.

There is oil in the water and it keeps overhaeting; have flushed the hoses and it still overheats

Oil in the antifreeze means the head gasket is in need of replacement due to leaking between oil and antifreeze passages at the head.

The engine may need to be flushed out as well (antifreeze).

Check the fan to see if it operates properly.

2004 Mitsubishi Outlander AWD, over heats when idle/stopped, cools down when driving. Added antifreeze 2 weeks ago, problem fixed until yesterday when started heating up again during idle, antifreeze...

Sounds like the electric fan is not coming on. Could be the switch screwed into the radiator, a malfunctioning fan relay, a blown fan fuse or the fan motor has gone bad.

My 2000 tracker is overheating and when i fill it with antifreeze and let it idle it appears that the coolant is taken into the block. the fan on the radiator is not working would that cause antifreeze to...

yes it would cause the antifreeze to bubble out and if you don't get that fan working again you will burn up the motor. i don't know much about those electric fans other than hot-wiring them but i wouldn't recommend you do it.. have someone check for a fuse gone out or something. good-luck anyway ray

Make sure you don't have a bad head-gasket. Check for excessive pressure in radiator or hoses. Check under oil cap for creamy/milk like residue or actual antifreeze in oil or the opposite oil in antifreeze. Let me know what you find. Good Luck
