Could be head or pump, but if no missfire or smoke from exhaust I suspect the pump seals, cheaper and easier to check and renew pump seals first then flush engine and renew oil and filter, then keep an eye on oil after that.

My 96 Eagle Vision TSI overheats.


if the head gasket is not blown did you have head checked to see if it was warped? This can happen very quickly when it is overheating. The fact that u have oil and coolant mixing means that coolant is entering either from the head or a cylinder is cracked letting coolant in

FORD FOCUS LOSING COOLANT SUDDENLY


Check for white smoke out the exhaust. If you have white smoke then you are burning coolant and probably have a blown headgasket. Another way for checking a blown headgasket is to open the coolant overflow tank and run the car. If you see constant bubbles in the coolant then you have a blown headgasket.

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR CAR IF the gasket it blown as the engine will overheat and the cylinder head can warp/crack.

If there is no white smoke from the exhaust and no bubbles in the coolant system there is probably jsut a leak in the coolant system, visually check all the pipes and check around the waterpump housing for leaks. If you can't see a leak then pressure test the coolant system. A pressure test will push coolant out the leak and should help you find where it is.

Hope this helps

Pressure build up in cooling system


My best guess is a blown head gasket. Pressure from the explosion inside the cylinders excapes through the blown gasket and often pressurizes the cooling system. Is there any mixing of oil and water in either system? It is also possible that your waterpump is just getting weak or you have some system clogs. If headgasket seems ok, Start with a coolant system flush. You can run distilled water in the car until you know if you have to tear the motor down further for repair, i.e. waterpump. Running the distilled water is safe for a little road testing as long as it isn't going to freeze. This will save you the money of adding new coolant only to find out you have to drain it again. cheap things first as always.

Coolant leaking on 1991 Volvo 740 Turbo Wagon


There is a pipe that connects to the rear of the waterpump right where you say it is leaking. I would guess the seal is leaking. Since you have to remove the pump to replace the seal, you should replace the waterpump.

These engines commonly blow the headgasket when overheated, and commonly overheat and leak coolant when the headgasket is blown. So it may be hard to say what came first, but either way you will need to determine if the headgasket is OK before you make any repairs.

Good Luck,
