The engine takes 10w-40 motorcycle oil.Trans and engine share oil. Antifreeze is a 50/50 mix.

2004 trailblazer sucking trans fluid into engine. I am a NISSAN Master tech. The Trans fluid is not on stick so I added 3 Qts truck would then drive up the driveway smoking like a fire. run 1 min.


Pure guess: you added the tranny fluid to the engine via the engine oil dipstick tube, thinking you were using the tranny dipstick tube. Not hard to make that mistake.
I'd drain engine oil immediately and check it. Can't think of any way for tranny fluid to get into combustion chamber. Good luck

Transmission oil found in radiator


there is a cooler for the trans fluid that runs threw the f the radiator the cooler splits and trans pressure being higher while running pushes into the coolant how ever as it cools down the coolant pressure can push the coolant into the trans so see if the trans fluid looks like a straw beery milk shake if so try and keep flushing the trans until the fluid is clean and fresh if the trans makes it threw the coolant then you will need to flush the cooling system i use pinesol it breaks down the oil

L200 oil in coolant tank


very possible you have a bad oil cooler, i wouldn't operate the vehicle until it is taken care of, the cooling system will have to be completely cleaned out.

99 MALIBU HAS OIL IN THE COOLANT RESEVOUR


this oil is usually from the trans cooler in the rad that helps keep the trans fluid at operating temperature by the engine coolant absorbing the heat from the trans fluid .the cooler is a steel tubing in the rad tanks that the engine coolant runs around and absorbs the heat.when the cooler rusts through the trans oil seeps into the coolant.if it was motor oil it could be caused by a head gasket were the oil passage is next to the coolant passage in the gasket and it seeps into the coolant passage.however the coolant pressure is alot higher than the oil pressure and the coolant usually enters the crankcase.

Car has been sitting in garage for past 10 years, on blocks. what do you recommend before trying to start? it needs new battery.


you need drain fuel tank.fuel tank probably need to be removed and cleaned out to remove all sediment in bottom of fuel tank.remove each sparks and label them.squirt some clean engine oil down the spark holes into cylinder bores to help lubricate cylinder walls and help seal the piston rings to build up compression.replace fuel filter.best to change spark plugs and wires.check all brake hoses they more likely old cracked. i would change brake fluid bleed out all the old brake fluid out of the brake system.also change power steering fluid and change transmission fluid and filter also change engine oil and oil filter.replace the antifreeze and all the coolant hoses and radiator hose.replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.replace battery and add new full tank of gas.you should be ready go. check ignition timing also.

The coolant jug has a creamy tan color fluid in it


that means trans fluid or engine oil is getting into cooant system. Not good. Either a leaky trans cooler in the radiator or a blown head gasket. Hope it's the trans cooler

I have oil in my radiator and i need to stop the problem


I'm not sure what vehicle we are speaking of, but it is most likely not oil in the radiator. It is transmission fluid. Your radiator has two separate areas designed to cool the engine coolant and also the trans fluid. What most likely happened is these two areas developed a crack, and is allowing the trans fluid to enter the radiator. Replacing the radiator will correct this issue. In most cases, your trans fluid will also be contaminated with engine coolant, and the trans fluid will also have to be drained and flushed.

Oil in the radiator


most likely trans fluid is mixing with the coolant,most cars share the radiator with coolant and the lower part as a trans cooler but sometimes the spot that keeps the fluids seperated leaks and they mix,,,bad bad bad,can ruin your trans if you get coolant in it,dont drive it,tow it and replace the radiator and flush the cooling system and trans

I just bought a '93 Lincoln Town Car, 210K miles. My first thought it to have all of the fluids replaced to "reset" the timer, so to speak. Trans Fluid, Engine Oil, PS fluid, Brake fluid, Diff Oil,...


Great Ideal !! Most can be done at a oil change place !! Also I would use a good high milage vehicle oil!! I'm a mechanic of 30 years and this is what i use in my older FORD van!!swampratt200 !! aaeee!!!

Can't find the spout to pour transmission fluid into Ford Taurus


You need a funnel to add trans fluid to the dipstick tube where u check the trans fluid level. Let me know if u need more help, Add fluid w/ engine running, shift car thru all gears to circulate fluid. Don't overfill, it's bad for the trans.
