    Hi I have a E7 model zzr600 and it has been fine but been in storage over winter with the odd start up to ensure battery life. Today I just noticed a bit of milky stuff in my viewing window and a little bit under the oil cap when I removed it. Have checked the head and it is okay. No levels are down, has been suggested that it has been condensation due to storage along with not getting a good run or warm enough, what are your thoughts? The bike starts and runs fine.

Refrase 1996 hyundai excel ,oil in water no water in sump oil.


Oil in the water is usually a sign of a head gasket leak, because the high pressure oil passes through to the head in order to lubricate the camshaft.
The oil return passages also go through the head gasket, but are too low pressure to usually cause any problem.
As long as there is no water in the oil or loss of water, I would keep driving it.
The oil in the water will not hurt anything. If it eventually gets worse and leaks water, then you will have to do the head gasket. Costs about $500.
Of you can do it yourself for about $75 if you know how to use a torque wrench.

Just replaced temp sender unit and changed coolant. Temp gauge works fine, but when up to temperature, water spews past radiator filler cap. does not discharge into expasion tank although the small pipe to...


Hi, why did you change the sender in the first instance? If you mean the water is pushing past the radiator cap when the engine is hot, and suspect the head gasket is the cause of the water pressurising the system, run the bike with 1 plug removed if the cooling system is getting pressurised from a leaking gasket, then with the plug removed no pressure will be forced into the system from that cylinder and the water should not push past the radiator cap, try this on all cylinders one at a time to eliminate them, if the pressure does stop at any time then the head gasket COULD be at fault,you can buy a kit which measures water in th exhast system

I have a 1996 Chevy C1500 5.0L Vortec V8. I lost oil pressure and found water in the oil. Replaced oil and filter so we could start the engine again. Regained oil pressure, no noise, ran smooth, no bubbles...


next step is to remove the intake, you are on the right track, worse i ever found was a cracke block, but that was in a 61 t-bird which was repaired with jb weld ten yrs ago and still holding, but the intake gasket sounds right

Water getting in to engine oil i think head gasket in fine ive been told i may have a problem with the water pump is this true?


The water pump oil seals, yes. The seals keep the gearbox oil separated from the water. The only other way water can normally get into the gearbox is if you have a cracked center casing, a loose oil filler plug, bad head gasket, bad cylinder gasket, and condensation. The normal culprit is the water pump seals.

BMW 520i 1996 over heating no water is in the oil and the water is not leaking any where


you have a blown head gasket, or a warped valve head. fill it up with water in the radiator look for water comming out of the tailpipe but if there is water in the oil 100% blown head gasket or warped or cracked valve head

How often should I bleed air from the cooling system?


check your oil and make sure you dont ahve a blown head gasket and that your thermostat is good (throw it in boiling water and see if it opens), and if you are losing water/coolant with no drips or puddles than it may be leaking in a cylinder which means bad head gasket as well

Oil in overflow of radiator.


If you have coolant mixed in you oil you have blown a head gasket at the very least. You will have to pull the heads and replace the gasket.
